The Move Is On

25 Dec

17 days and counting. This is how many days are left before I get onto a plane with my husband bound for the sunny climes of Belize, located in Central America. My husband is coming with me for a week and coming home alone leaving me to establish our new lives in a new country.
Let me tell you how this decision came about.
Years ago I read a book about a couple who, in their mid-forties, sold all their belongings, and moved to an island in the middle of the Pacific from their home location of San Francisco. The island they moved to was Truk, which is somewhere between Hawaii and the Polynesian Islands – away from any major destinations. According to the story they took a ship to a popular port and then were taxied to Truk Island by another boat. When they arrived on this island their new lives began. They had to learn a new language, new cultures, all without the easy access to resources they enjoyed while in San Francisco. Reading through their story and I was hooked. This story stayed in my memory banks for many years and when I mentioned my dream to my husband, he too adopted the dream.
So now, move ahead 30 or so years and the opportunity has arisen for me to make the dream a reality. Can you say excited?
