We’ve sold our car, our condo, and a cache of furniture and personal belongings. What’s left is either in storage or those bags. Where, exactly, the next phase of our lives will take us remains to be seen but at the moment, we’re on an airplane heading for San Pedro Sula, Honduras. From there, we’ll make our way to Utila in the Bay Islands. We’ll be there for 6-8 weeks before heading to colder climates for a month but we’ll get to that in time. For now, we’re just happy to be homeless.
As most of our readers (are there any, yet?) know, this is the first phase of a trip we expect to last at least 15 months. We have a loose itinerary and a few flights booked but want the freedom to tailor our itinerary as we go. We’ve been planning and preparing for a long time: saving money, airline miles, hotel and credit card points; testing out our gear; selling off furniture, books, and household goods; dropping off valuables and winter clothes with our families; seeing as many of our friends and family members as time permitted. But only in the last month did the reality hit us that this is happening and we’re actually leaving. We have no home to return to, no bed to call our own – just our wits, our packs, and each other to lean on.
We’re excited, eager to land in Honduras, and ready to see what the world has in store for us. Thanks for joining us here, we’ll write more soon.
