I think I am still struggling to imagine how it will all actually work! When I think back to my trip in my 20's I think of all the lengthy journeys and long gaps between decent feeds, and lugging backpacks on and off public transport. I wonder how we'll manage and my expectations are that we will solve some of the issues with a bigger budget! :( But some 'cushioning' is likely to be required with the three children in tow.
I am still loathed to cut back on the numb of countries we are visiting despite all the warnings about the need to go slow, and I wonder if I am in denial. But I think I would rather see less of each country once we are there and go slow in that way, than stay put in only two or three places over 6 months. I want the children to experience the contrasts - that's important to me but not so important to my partner - so I think once we go the children will dictate by how they react.

Looking to leave early Feb. for six months with our 8yr, 9yr and 17 month old. Reactions are variable - as we are taking a leap of faith and giving up jobs to do it. Looking for a shake up! Lots to organise and feeling a bit like we are flying by the seat of our pants. Some negative comments about the fact that my baby won't appreciate being dragged around the world and upsetting the children's education - but mostly it's just excitement and longing to join in!
