An undertaking as big as the one ahead of us requires a big Goodbye!
And that’s exactly what we did last Friday in the famous Linzer Pfadfinderheim where Gui ‘s old boy scout memories were revived.
A bunch of good friends that became far more than simple work colleagues during the last years, a big fire to protect our butts from the stinging cold and some exquisite spirits to warm our heart, these are the ingredients for a really great time!
And when you then get presents that were chosen with so much care and creativity, hear so many sincere and emotional good wishes of people that count, it makes it a priceless and unforgettable evening.
Thank you all sooo much!!
We just received our GPS tracking device that gives us the possibility to stay connected with our beloved ones. It allows us to write little text message via the satellite network and track our daily position. And you will even have the possibility to follow our tracking points on this map.
The last months passed by really fast and here we are, we finally go for our recumbent trip in two months !!!
It sounds so easy to just leave for a while but it’s actually tons of work to free yourself from the bonds of your every day life. We spent the last months with giving up our beautiful nest and moving to Kathi (Martina’s twin sister) who had the generosity and patience to give us shelter for our last months, quitting millions of contracts for all the things you can’t imagine to live without and fighting against the bureaucracy of Austria’s health insurance system.
Martina made much progress for our trip planing between her last long days at work. I had a quite busy February teaching in the swiss mountains and trying to help her as much as I can… The separation for the winter season was really hard this time, especially for organising everything. But at least Martina could come to enjoy powder 😉
In the last weeks we also purchased mostly of the missing spare parts, signed a travel insurance, quit the phone contract, ordered our new credit cards, get our last vaccinations and so on. We feel stressed to don’t forget to do something and at the same time really exited to start soon. It’s a mix of doubt, motivation, confusion and amusement.
