In all honesty, we don’t know what we’re doing.
‘Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away‘?
Have you ever heard of the quote? Sometimes I think the phrase describes us very well :).
To stop and think of the consequences what this means: quitting our jobs and leaving our comfort zone is too scary. It’s much easier to not think about it. In a way, life is more exciting when you don’t know what’s ahead.
Even though we don’t know what we’re going to be doing 80 days from now, we do know what’s ahead in the near future. We have some yearly traditions with friends and families that usually involve some sort of travel. With us leaving, there’s even more incentive NOT to skip these.
Our travel plans between now and then
– A ski trip to Tahoe
Once a year, a group of our friends from all over the states would fly into a skiing destination for a weekend of skiing, good wines, and inappropriate jokes. This year’s destination: Tahoe.
– A cross country ski trip in Tahoe
Once a year, a group of people from all over Bay Area would meet in a cabin in Tahoe for a weekend of cross-country skiing, good wines, and most likely inappropriate jokes.
– A trip to Vegas with relatives to watch Ka (eeeek! so excited!)
Once a year, our relatives would treat us for a weekend of all-expenses paid in San Francisco to watch an opera. This year they’re changing it up a bit and we’re heading to Las Vegas instead to watch a Cirque du Soleil show, Ka.
Ka is only, like, the best show ever… so I’m really excited about this trip.
Would there be wine and inappropriate jokes? Yes, most likely.
– A climbing trip to Yosemite
Most likely this is going to happen after we leave our jobs so we can go spend a week or longer and have the whole place to ourselves. Both Snake Dike and Royal Arches are something we’ve been wanting to do.
Wine: if make it to the top, yes. If we don’t, we’ll need something stronger.
Inappropriate jokes: Just really bad ones.

These trips will be bitter-sweet
At the same time, I’d like to think that we’re leaving our life here in California with a ‘bang’
By doing activities that we love doing with the people that we like to be around with makes saying ‘good bye’ even harder. But it’s not really ‘good bye’, is it?
Note: We’re doing a fund-raising!
