Just over a year ago, we rented out our house, packed our lives into two backpacks and hit the open road. With a one way ticket to Delhi and very little in the way of a plan our round the world family gap year began…
“We are often asked whether it is difficult to travel with young children. Usually the question is posed by young travellers who don’t have kids. My stock answer is that life with children is life with children. We have the same issues on the road that we’d have at home: disagreements over screen time (George), drama over getting dressed (Tomas), refusal to get a haircut (both) and I still often impale my foot on lego when I go to the loo at 3am.”
We’ve covered a lot of ground so far; India, Nepal, Hong Kong, China, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Borneo, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.
It’s nearly time to go home.
