To be honest I feel frustrated is day 6 and I can't even choose where to go, where to stop and from how long. I've travel a little in the past for vacations or my job, alone or with the family, we did already two trips in Morocco two years ago and last summer in Turkey to “test” the boys ( I got 2 of 10 and 8 ) but now is different . The idea is to stay out for a year and travel slow and this is the hard part.... how many time we need to visit a country ? A city ? A region ?
What if we didn't choose the right time between jumps ?
What if we discover a place we rent for 2 weeks is sad and boring or at the contrary is the place where will be great to spend 2 months ?
All these questions became more and more important when I think it will cost my family one year time.
Speaking about cost, until now for me it is impossible to put together a budget I read of a family of 6 that left with 45.000$ for 1 year and people that spend much more in 3.
It is an hard time … departure is more or less with in 6 months and I'm stuck...

I saw that many of us answered to WHY simply saying they can. Well the very first reason Is that we are lucky to do it today. Tomorrow or in a near future I really do not know if we will be strong (physically and economically) enough to do it.
An other WHY is a little more 'spiritual "we have a lot of things around us and our children and we feel that, somewhere, this is not right so we really want to to try leave with less stuff and more meeting peoples, discovering different way of leaving . A third WHY at least for me is that travels are the only form of true knowledge I believe in.
