I like travelling. But I don’t like being away from my family. So I decided to go on a Big Family Trip! And, happily, my family decided to join 🙂
We call it the Big Family Trip because we’re a Big Family (me & Sophia and Dave 8, Jenny 6, Emma 3, Peter 1), and because it’s a Big Trip (6 months, 7 countries)!
The purpose of the trip is to expand our horizons, be together as a family, and have fun! I’ll be doing a little bit of work on the road (2-3 days per month), but most of the time will be family time. To minimize my email time I’ve created a FAQ page with most typical requests and responses.
Our 6 month journey will take us to Denmark, China, Japan, Thailand, New Zealand, Peru, Brazil, and British Virgin Islands. The detailed plan is here. But the plan is only a plan, and it is pretty flexible. The journey itself is the goal, not the destination!
Since this blog here is mostly for agile and lean stuff I’ve created a separate blog for the trip. So if you’re curious about what it’s like travelling with four small kids feel free to follow us on bigfamilytrip.wordpress.com.
Here’s a geeky Google Earth animation of our travel plan:
