Yair and I love Arvie and we love RVing, but I can’t help but think about how family-friendly a lifestyle RVing is. We are both interested in living internationally and the types of overseas experiences that we would like to have are best done pre-kids, so we spent a couple of hours today reimagining our itinerary or – in more grandiose terms – our short-term life plan. Here is our totally theoretical thinking:
- Spend the next year RVing. Make our way to southern Texas in the winter and then up toward Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota in the summer.
- Put Arvie in the best possible hands for temporary storage while we live abroad and explore the world for a couple of years.
- Return to the United States. Bye bye IUD, hello baby (is that how it works?) and pick up Arvie before we hit the big 3-0.
We spent the past hour staring at a map like a bunch of goofy kids and picking out countries that ‘sound like fun’. We each picked five countries that could be interesting, and our homework over the next two weeks is to research each of our countries and present them to each other. Awesome!
Just a year ago, RVing was a new crazy adventure and it’s still a way of life that I dig, but I don’t want to pass up the opportunity for international living and volunteering (which is what I am craving now) just because sticking with the status quo is easy. Who’s got suggestions for us?
