The time to leave draws closer.. two more weeks and we will catch the boat from Civitavecchia to Tunisi. As usual we aren’t at all ready and have hundreds of little things to tie up before our departure date. Little scribbled list of tasks to do and unrelated objects to load into the truck can be found scattered everywhere, and the night is often punctuated by moments of ….” oh god, we must remember to…” The never ending meals and goodbyes, though enjoyable, increase to our morning headaches , where wine mixes with stress.
…It will be a relief to leave, and not be able to prepare anything any more. Once you are 30 km from home and done with your last minute frenzy, you realise anyway that a lot of things you ‘need’ can be done without.. and actually that’s in part what the trips is all about. Leaving is always a little like waking up, your muscles slowly realax and you can finally lift your head out of the fog and see what was always there in the first place…
So just a few pictures stolen in the few unoccupied moments to immortalise this phase of the journey (picking olives has traditionally become our last task before leaving (…yes as ‘true’ Italians we take our oil, parmesan and coffee from home)

Lusira è bellissima, Giulio è…grande, oltre che bello . Ragazzi…complimenti ! State facendo una cosa bellissima . Ma non è che, un domani. ritroveremo i vostri figli a fare i promotori finanziari nel caso valesse la regola che seguono una via diversa da quella dei genitori ? Francamente fatico ad immaginarlo ma “shit happens” .
Trovo in formissima anche voi . Mantenetevi così perchè al vostro ritorno qui scoppierà la rivoluzione …e anche il Vesuvio, sotto il quale il nostro Presidente vuole fare un tunnel di 80 km per rafforzare l’asse Palermo-Berlino dopo aver costruito il ponte sullo Stretto, l’ottava meraviglia . In alto i cuori ! Va tutto benissimo ! Un abbraccio a tutti .

Thank you for the kind words… glad you enjoyed. Yes we will be doing another doc. soon but not a series and it will be about different ways and types of ‘learning’ as our kids do homeschooling and our trip through Asia this time was more specifically based around this idea. I would love Discovery to buy it, but i somehow doubt it!!
