One Family, One Dream, A Journey
It is the middle of the night, I am in front of my laptop, and you are before my first words. I wish I were able to transmit everything I feel. I wonder how to express something as abstract as a dream. Look inside yourself in search for that dream you once had and never accomplished. I wish to catalyze it.
We are a happily married couple with two boys and two girls upon a 5 continent journey that will take us on and off-road through an amazing adventure that will take us to large cities and small towns, sharing cultures in the territories of the strange and unknown, to untamed nature and within our own selves, until we finally reach the end of world. It is about making up for lost time, learning from problem solving, leaving our understanding of frontiers behind and traveling towards the horizon, making the next destination our permanent destiny. We invite you on this journey, to visit over 100 countries during 80 months on board “freedom,” our personally designed and named mobile home for the next years.
We wish to differ from the standard when it comes to leaving a legacy upon our children. The type of wealth we would like to pass on to them is one closer to cultural and spiritual equity, and the open mindedness naturally brought on by travel.
The day to day of this journey will be shared on our website through photographs, video and each of our family member’s written impressions.
We will depart from friends and family, our home and a considerable amount of material property that was unknowingly anchoring us away from a dream. Leaving behind the securities of work and routine, we set out with many fears and uncertainties, but also with much joy and conviction. Our journey will probably develop differently from what was planned and expected, but the basic initiative will hold as we transit through fields, mountain ranges, valleys, coastlines, jungles, ruins, temples and above all: different cultures and the infinite possibility of new friendships.
This step we make is the beginning of the road towards a life-long dream.
