Well, here we are back in town after a whirlwind of packing up all that has been home to us for the past 8 months of our lives. We have had a beautiful welcome home and it has been so good to see all of our family and friends again. We have also been enjoying the many benefits of coming back to the developed world… running water, drinking straight from the tap, fresh produce on any day of the week and refrigeration amongst other things. Some of you may remember the blog ‘Spear a beef burger Dad!’? There have been quite a few ‘moments’ of hilarity as we experience the ease of basic things we took for granted before we left. On our first day home my Dad actually called to remind us not to light a fire in the lounge room for our morning coffee!! Thanks Dad!
Our last days (for this year) on that beautiful Island were so special… Much laughter and much tears were had as we said goodbye to our new friends, our second family and really to our new 2nd home. We have fallen in love with this place, with this people… changed forever, never to be the same again. We have been apprehensive about leaving the simple life we have been living…where we feel safe to sleep with no walls and fresh air, where we awake to the gentle sounds of waves, nature and simple village life. A place where people really do come first… And feeling a little uneasy on how to negotiate a world that seems to thrive on busyness & where everyone seems to have an agenda.
Our dream is to bring these two worlds a little closer together!
These two worlds have SO much to offer each other!!
