Go Big or Stay Home: Taking the Sabbatical Plunge
May 9, 2008
Over at The Wide Wide World, Craig has just bought four round the world airline tickets. He posted their full itinerary that will eventually take the family of four to six continents, but what’s even better is his description of taking the plunge, credit card in hand.
It’s hard to describe the combination of excitement and sheer terror I feel right now.
One thing for sure. We’re not staying home.
I know exactly what he means. The great part, though, is that the sheer terror steadily gives way to rising excitement. It’s that first “point of no return” step that really makes your stomach flip. Those big steps, though, are the ones that lock you in, and ensure that you really do escape.
Beyond a great glimpse into the psychology of family sabbatical planning, The Wide Wide World has a great list of round-the-world family bloggers. The site is well worth following.
PS: We’ll be checking in with Craig before and during their escape. To make sure you don’t miss the interview, subscribe to Escape 101 by email or RSS!Share this post-> del.icio.us | Digg | Facebook | Technorati | StumbleUpon
