Hello World!

So, it’s really happening! Both Henrik and I have resigned from our pretty amazing jobs and we’re leaving for our 15-month (or so) trip.

Preliminary itinerary is Alberta, British Columbia, and the Pacific Coast Highway from mid-July to mid-September 2011; South America from October 2011– March 2012; Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania from April – September 2012; Southeast Asia from September – December 2012.

If you would like to follow our travels, bookmark  https://lifes2shortnot2.wordpress.com/

And, if you’re on Facebook, “friend” me so I can follow what is happening in your and your family’s lives!

Or, better yet, if you are going to be (or if you want to be!) in any of these places while we’re there, let us know! My email is:

  1. Karen –
    We have only met a couple of times at CA, but my husband, George, my son, Karl, and I are also taking a year off to travel the world. Both George and I taught in the upper school.

    We will be in British Columbia at the same time you are – August. We have made reservations with Tide Rip Tours http://www.tiderip.com/ to see grizzly bears catch salmon on Vancouver Island. It would be great if you could join us. Send me an e-mail.
