On the road!!

Marion – It’s already been a few days since we left Vienna and arrived in Turkey, in Istanbul, with Sinan’s family.
First of all, let’s go back in time. Even if we are rather well organised and prepared (insurance, banks, etc.), we only managed to pack our bags at the very last minute. We are loaded like mules. We have to plan for temperatures ranging from -30 to +40. It’s going to be a bit chaotic on the road.
We said goodbye to as many friends as possible but of course if we didn’t manage to see everyone. We’ll make up for it on our return, promise!
In the meantime, a few things have changed for me. I will finally continue to work 6h/week for eight more weeks in my old job. This will require a new organisation for certain things. That being said, I’m happy to be able to complete the work on one of my projects that I had left mid-way.
Anyway, we were ready without having a precise programme. We only knew that we were leaving, on 26 September for Istanbul, and on 22 October for Boston. It’s the first time we’re out of our well-organized routine but the current situation doesn’t leave us much choice, and then to travel around the world is to leave our comfort zone, so we might as well go all the way.
I’ll spare you the details of the day of our departure but it was a day of tears, the joy of leaving and above all the kids were really cool during all the controls and flight times.
Now we are enjoying the sun, the Turkish in-laws, the local specialties, even little Ouistiti has started to eat. Little Ouistiti was also looking forward to learning again and to the end of all the farewell meetings and tidying up. She is happy that her Mum has time to teach her again. She has 3 goals by the end of the trip: to be able to read, write and above all to go down the fireman’s pole like Lina.
We are happy to have taken the plunge, even if our little hearts cry at having left some of our favourite people behind…
Otherwise, we’re filling up with visits in Istanbul and we’re slowly preparing the program for the next two weeks by the sea with Sinan’s family.
See you soon for new adventures!!
