As you can see we booked our flights. Which means we definitely start traveling again this spring.
Till now our preparations have been minimal due to Petra working on her photoexhibition and her work in the skischool. (Altough this year the winter in the Alps has not been very spectacular. It was more like spring … till now. It is snowing since 2 days.)
But some things we did already prepare:
Besides a 2 1/2l pan (Esmé is eating like an adult 🙂 ) we also bought some drybags from Ortlieb. The blue one is 35l (!!!) and I really hope, we will not need that much space too often.
We organized everything to be able to homeschool Ben. In Austria it is legal to homeschool your child. We talked to all the people who need to know and borrowed those schoolbooks from a school. We will not carry them, but it can be useful to know how children who go to school learn how to write, read and calculate. This time we will carry a tablet (bought second hand for a good price) mostly to have a look at the weather forecast, maps and to use warmshowers.org. (I’m writing this post on it right now and I’m definitely not used to it yet.) At a certain point it will also be useful for the education of our children.
And last but not least, Ben and Esmé drew THE map which we will need to cycle in the land of the bears, like Ben is calling Canada.
We keep you updated!
