We considered our options. Would we go back up to Maine and possibly hit Labrador this year? Should we do something unexpected and go to the Pacific Northwest? Rent some bikes and force ourselves on Trobairitz and Troubadour? Go visit Vancouver Island? Or do something completely off script and go to Iceland? New Zealand? Ecuador?
Or were we going to give that up and just put our heads down and work and figure out the mental health thing later.
Trying to make the decision weighed heavily. What to do, what to do.
Oilburner cut the guilt trip and pushed for a 2 week vacation. I bit the bullet and solidified the dates at my job. Now to decide what to do. We decided we want to do something completely unexpected, force us out of our lives and do something that would shake everything up. Since Rogey was out of the country, we could wait on New Zealand. We did a search on a motorcycle tour we have been researching the past couple of months. We sent an email request. We got an answer back. And suddenly we are leaving deposits and booking international flights and trying to figure out how to pack our riding gear and get out of dodge in 8 days.
Wanna know where we are going? I'll give you a clue...
Now this...this we are finally excited about.
