    At the moment we're considering how long we can afford to travel for, so will limit where we go to give us enough time in the places we want to go. It is looking like we'll head to parts of Europe we've not been to, some USA, Canada, Hawaii, and possibly Oz & New Zealand

    If we can take a payment holiday on the mortgage we will, but it is likely we'll be paying the mortgage while we're away - and I'm betting the mortgage lender will have clauses in the contract that restricts us from letting as well. We might see if we can get a house sitter, but we've not been long in the area so don't know anyone well enough to ask them to act on our behalf. A toughie this, but we'll crack it

    The biggest challenge at the moment, at such an early stage of planning, is working out the best thing for our two boys (aged 5 and 6) - will school help, will we lose their place, will their friendships suffer, will they come back and be ostracised, etc?? That and working out if we've the money for it ;-)

    Well, apart from my wife (obviously) I've finally told my parents. I think they're as supportive as they can be, considering the risks involved in aspects of travel, house, education, etc. etc. etc. We are not going to tell my in-laws yet as they will not be impressed, will stress about it, and we don't actually know much about our journey yet (when, where, how long, etc.)
