Should I be more concerned?

We leave Cincinnati in 57 days. With one-way tickets to Kuala Lumpur.

“We” means myself, my wife, my 15 year-old daughter and my 7 year-old daughter.

People keep asking “Wow – you must be so busy preparing for your trip, right?”

We do need to sell all our stuff, but keep putting that part off. Other than that, I think we just go.

We’ve been living minimally (as-in, I own 1 pair of jeans and a few shirts and clothes) for a couple of years now. Everything I own will fit in my Osprey Meridian backpack – either that, or I’m selling it. 

But people keep asking, “Aren’t you nervous?” “Ready for the big adventure?”

Maybe I should be nervous, but I think I’ll just get up that morning and go to the office like any other day.

Only the office will be on the other side of the globe.

Am I missing something?

  1. 57 days will be here before you know it. It sounds like a very smart plan to minimize your belongings instead of hauling a bunch of stuff around the planet. Someone here can use the things you have accumulated, I’m sure. Safe journeys when that day comes!

    1. The people of Cincinnati make me smile. Like family – only not as crazy! You’re honorary family, Linnea.
