The Beginning of a New Adventure

 
We have some news!
 
At the end of the June we’ll be packing our truck camper and hitting the road for an extended year-long adventure.
 
 
The Plan
We’ll begin by driving into Oregon and California and if all goes well (a big IF, given that we’ll have four people living in a house smaller than a parking space!) then we’ll keep driving south into Mexico and Central America.
 
And if things go fantastically well then we’ll hit the tip of South America(!!) sometime in January 2018.
 
 
Escape Options
Of course there are many variables when travelling with kids, so we’re trying to keep the agenda and schedule flexible. It’s possible that we’ll decide international travel isn’t in the cards and do a loop of the US instead. Or we’ll last two months and then zip back to Seattle in time for Ben to start first grade. 🙂
 
Chris’ last day at work is June 1. Emma (age 3) will have just finished preschool and we’ll wait for Ben (age 6) to wrap up kindergarten before heading south. We’ve just completed our last round of vaccinations and we’re looking into homeschooling for the coming year. Not surprisingly, we are both excited and nervous.

If you’re interested, we’re hoping to regularly update this space. We are also on Instagram.
 
Advice
If you’ve got kid-friendly travel recommendations for Baja, Mainland Mexico, Central America (Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, CR, Panama), and South America (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina), we’d love to hear ’em!
 
xo,
 
Sonja and Chris
