Found your blog early this year when planning our family holiday to Sydney and have been reading regularly to catch up on your travels. I was so excited for you (and envious!) and your writing has only motivated me further to work towards our own major family expedidition.
More than anything I was so proud reading about your accounts of your time in New Zealand (and particularly the Nelson area where I live). It has reminded me of how lucky we are to live here! Wish I had found your blog before you left the area – you would have been welcome to come for a coffee…
Thanks Sarah – I look forward to the book. You write in a very ‘readable’ and entertaining way. Good luck!

I have a recipe for empanadas that my grandmother in peru uses. They are absolutely delicious, but probably a bit different than those from argentina.

If you would like it and promise not to reveal the secret ingredients 😉 shoot me an e-mail and i’ll pass it along.

i miss having teddy at the firm on fridays and hope you are all doing well!!

Great to read your posting – I just wanted to reassure you that all you described is pretty much as we found it coping with ‘re-entry’. Don’t worry about the ‘unsettled’ feeling – it will come, you will feel right about your new routine and trust your choices and decisions. Our kids found the best way to cope with school at first was to ignore the trip and it saddened me watching them try to fit in, but they have found their way and their group of friends now. They also do minimal extra curricular activities, and are happy to hang out with us at home, at the beach, at the coffee place, just being. Even now, more than 2 years on I should think there is something that makes us think of the trip every few days, the legacy will never be forgotten. Persevere with a hard copy, the girls in particular like to have it to read and look back, and I do too – sometimes I wonder if we really did that!!
Hope you all continue to flourish
Rachel xxxx

I was very moved by your writing. You’ve learned so many lessons, and it is so wonderful to see things through your eyes.

I have loved living vicariously through you and your family. We hope to see you soon, in some theater venue or another. Hi to Colly from Caroline!

She’s fitting in socially and developing hobbies, like cooking and film editing, to make up for the fact she’s hobbled by crutches.” We all have our proverbial crutches. Let’s hope we travel better when we’ve put them aside.

Why not continue the blog periodically with posts like “Home Together”, “Running Away”, or “Wandering”?

Chisel away and find the book inside. It’s there.

Jeffery

I can totally relate to the school routine – a necessary evil which dulls the mind in my opinion. Education is so much more powerful and real outside the classroom. Good luck on the book project – can’t wait to read it.

And I can imagine reading that book, too. I’ll send you an update on our plans soon, too, but I wanted to leave you a comment anyway!

I keep thinking about all those things we are missing (like the Bode’s first day of school and Halloween). I’m glad we chose to keep traveling for now, but I am also looking forward to being home someday. I’m sure it will be bittersweet as well.

Also, good luck with the book. That is so exciting! I can’t wait to read it. Keep in touch!

Thanks so much for writing. Avery is also on the stay home and skateboard after school plan; maybe the two of them can spend some afternoons together.

Congrats on all the positive changes, and good luck with the book and the other exciting plans and activities. And I’m so glad to still have your running blog to read, Sarah – I wouldn’t want to have to go ‘cold turkey’. :-)
