Our little family is about to have a small taster of the life to come!
We are hitting the road for 6 weeks. Nick is needed on the set of Faan se Trein (a new movie being shot in a small Karoo town). This job has been a huge scoop for our family (financially & also opportunity-wise).
Anyhoo… we’re leaving the house in the care of some friends…
And Nick is driving down to the Karoo… and the kids and I are embarking on a mini road-trip – starting in Mpumalanga and Limpopo (to visit my cousin)… then staying over in Bloemfontein… and driving down to the Karoo (staying in a guest house with Nick for a couple of weeks)… and then moving on to the coast… Plett… Knysna… who knows where else… then back to the Karoo to fetch Nick… then back home to Joburg.
I guess it’s a mini taster of the life to come.
We’re not packing much… we’re taking the kids, clothes, a few toys & art materials, our computers and our cameras… (and our light-on-fuel little car). It’s not a 6-week-holiday… it’s 6 weeks of the new kind of lifestyle that we’ve been wanting to live… a location independent lifestyle… a lifestyle of travelling, exploring & road schooling – but still working – and earning regular, consistent income at the same time.
So… on the 13th April, we’re outta here… (10 days from now).
And before we go, we have 3 toilets and 2 basins to install, 2 walls that need tiling, 3 that need painting… shocks that need replacing… a rear indicator that needs fixing… (and Nick has 2 music videos to film & edit!!)… and… and… and…
Busy bees at the mo’…. but very excited bees nonetheless! 🙂
