Even for me, the crazy planner, it feels like it’s too much sometimes. That when one thing is decided, three other questions comes up. I hope the to-do-list will help us realize that it moves forward, and that it feels nice to check the boxes.
Transport to Malacca. Price?
Transport to Pinang, Cameron Highlands and back to KL. Price?
Book flight to Bali
Where do we want to go? In what order?
Transport between the different places. Price?
Book flight to Australia
Where do we want to go?
Book flight to NZ
When will we be there?
Where do we want to go?
Book a camper van?
Are there other places we want to see?
What do we want to see and do?
Then of course it is the packing, the money, the vaccinations, visas etc etc etc… Phew! But we will get there! I’ll try to update this list as we go!
Now. Watching Billie falling asleep in Tim’s arms in the hotel bed. I think Tim is falling asleep as well. It’s dark, it’s warm, it’s cozy. And my heart goes boom boom boom! The crib the hotel gave us will probably not be used. I can’t help it, it’s so cozy to have Billie next to us, close, close. I’m trying to be good at home and put him in the crib when it’s time to sleep, but he always ends up between us (Tim is to blame most of the times, but oh how sweet to wake up to a baby’s breath in your ear).
We are at the hotel next to Arlanda airport. We could have taken a bus tomorrow morning but starting the day at 4 am and going on for 20 hours are a little too much for a little infant (and for me), so we decided that it would be better to divide the trip into two. And how smart was that? It gave us an hotel night!
The bus trip here was super smooth with Billie being a true champ, sleeping most of the way and smiling the rest. We are lucky to have a baby that is happy with most things we are doing. We’ll see how tomorrow goes, it is a big day!
Tomorrow we are on our way. America. The U.S. Billie’s first time with Tim’s family. My first time. A little bit nervous. But most of all very very excited.
A new kind of era is about to start. Not the biggest one (you’ll get to read about the biggest later), not the most important or coolest one. But we are excited anyway! Both of us (Tim & Elin) like to write.
Tim his lyrics and poems and deep thoughts about life. Elin her short notes, lists and reminders and analytics of what happens. In this joint project we are now going to try to combine our writing. Welcome to our blog!
