James Bond World Survey
Now that we have chosen to accept it. Our mission is to spend around 14 months touring, living and experiencing the different cultures, scenery, ups, downs and lifestyles of Europe and North America.
A one off opportunity to hopefully enjoy the experience and time together as a family before the kids are too old and gone off on their own ways.
To show them that although, what we have at home (Gold Coast) is great and we should be thankful for it, it's not the centre of the universe.
To refocus our priorities and set up our plans for the next third quarter of our lives.
Fly to England via Hong Kong and Dubai to pick up a motor home we have purchased in England and then off to Switzerland for a White Christmas.
After that it will be, where opportunities, people and circumstances take us to and hopefully have next Christmas at Big White in Canada. But that's a long way away.
Along for the adventure are, daughter Lizzy (11.5 years), son Jack (9.5 years), wife and co-author/conspiritor Sue ($% years) and cash cow dad, Richard (50, some days seem longer, years).
I have bummed around some of these areas 18 and 25 years ago but the others haven't.
Wing it until the bank realises we're gone!! Beware anyone buying NAB shares when they find out!!
Be warned the writing expertise may not reach some peoples expectations and no doubt the writing styles will vary according to our experiences, emotions and the individual authors.
No one is holding a gun to your head to make you read it, so if you have a constructive comment please respond otherwise turn it off or the problem will belong to you.
This is a travel log as much for us as anyone else.
We do hope you all enjoy our experience.
Richard, Sue, Lizzy and Jack.
