HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It was New Year’s Day exactly 1 year ago as we sat around the pool in the backyard of our Sydney home with our good neighbours (whooo became gooood friendsss 🎼) chatting about what the future held for us all. We told them of our plans to travel Aus for 3 months in 2018 before someone posed the question... ‘Would you ever sell up to travel?’
We gave an honest and resounding ‘No way!’ with Sharon adding ‘You’ll be carrying me out of this house in a pine box, I’m never moving!’
We knew a change was coming as we felt a change within ourselves and our priorities but didn’t know what it would be or where it would lead us. We clearly had no idea that our life in Sydney was about to be completely turned on its head!
Exactly 28 days later we made an instant and certain decision that we were ready to make a drastic change and chase our dream of living longer on the road and settling in another part of NSW which has had our hearts for over a decade.
And so we did it! Three weeks later our house went on the market! And here we are...Today marking 7 months on the road and 7 and a half months of calling our caravan ‘home’ with not one single regret! Do we miss our home? Nope! Do we miss living in a big city? Hell no!
So what will 2018 bring for the Galways? Next week we will land on the Coffs Coast where we will set up camp and begin to establish a new life there. Adam is starting a great new job with Cooking the Books as the General Manager of Implementation and On-boarding and later this month the kids will begin at new schools.
Travel and adventure will remain a priority for us with many places along our favourite stretch of coastline and hinterland yet to be explored! Our caravan will remain a place to call home for the time being. There’s still much more to come in 2018 from Galways Go Round!
Thank you once again for joining us on the journey and we look forward to continuing to deliver great stories, inspiration and pics as well as caravanning tips and tricks in our 9th year of caravanning!
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and wonderful 2018!!
