When Travel and Adventure Becomes Ordinary

I started writing my Ordinary Moments post for this week about our midweek trip to the forest and halfway through I realised that although it’s one of the things we love doing it hasn’t been ordinary for our way of life recently

I sit writing this from an airport waiting for my flight to Brussels and it kind of sums up life right now. So very full of travel and adventure. This week I’m away with work but this evening I’m hoping to do a bit of exploration of a place I’ve never been to before

I won’t lie and say I’m not anxious because I am, it’s the first time I’m going to Europe in 8 years (!) and I don’t speak a word of the language  so I have a bit of travel anxiety. I figure if I can navigate New York on my own and drive from Canada to Rochester on my own I’m pretty sure I can manage a few hours in a city!

This saying just flashed up on the screen next to me-  “The world is a book and those who do not travel  read only one page” – St. Augustine

It really sums up the last few months.  I’ve always loved exploring and finding new areas, whether it’s near or afar, and J has inherited my love of a good adventure and exploration

The past 6 weeks have been bonkers for us as a family, one thing after another, one adventure after another and it’s given is so many amazing memories although the ordinary walks need to feature a bit more. Last night I was saying to the hubster it was Js first night at home on a Saturday for 6 weeks and it’s been a jam packed summer of travel and adventure

While our plan next year is to save and not go abroad, I’m looking forward to exploring much more of our beautiful country. For now though, here’s to my little European adventure and a look back on our 6 weeks of ordinary life
