Update: Happy Holidays!
I'll be honest; we haven't had the best of holidays. I've previously read other travellers write about how their new lives get complicated during the holidays. This being our first Christmas away from home we figured that it wouldn't be entirely smooth. But it's been rougher that that and we've gotten it on quite a few fronts.
love our new lives and we don't want to change anything, it's what we've worked towards for many years. For those who are upset with us right now we can just promise that we'll try harder to keep in touch. But we'd also like people to realize that we are also settling into a new reality ourselves.
So, in keeping with our general mood these holidays, we'll focus on the negative in this newsletter.
Things that suck. Because I'm sure we're not the only people in the world having a generally sucky Christmas break...
