Next idea: backpack round India. But it's monsoon time. Nah.
Next: go somewhere with Habitat for Humanity and help with a house build. Not enough of the kids would be old enough to help out so more or less ruled that out.
Hang out in Europe for two months anyway. Too expensive if not using cheap albergues.
Australia: nope, too much like home. We want something *different* (for the same reason most of the kids are keen for it to be somewhere we didn't go on our 2009 trip so that rules out a bit!)
NZ: Hubby can only get extra time off work if he goes overseas so it's not the time to see our own backyard either.
Pacific cruise: resounding NO from half the tribe including the two big ones who pay the bills
So what on earth should we do? We're looking for lightning bolts of inspiration to flash across the screen. "child-friendly" is not important to us - our kids are interested by all kinds of seemingly inane adult stuff!
or China (I don't remember you spending too much time there on the last trip)
or maybe China/Tibet/Nepal
or maybe Nepal/Northeast India/Bangladesh
or how is Western Africa that time of year?
This afternoon we will be paying for our flights! Return tickets to Paris. Due to the reduced time we are doing something quite different. A week in Paris, three weeks walking the end of the Camino. A week in London and a week on a canal boat up to Oxford. Overnight Eurolines bus back to Paris for a morning departure home.
Three days ago we were thinking of trekking to Machu Picchu!!!!
One day we might still do the entire Camino.
We'll likely still be here in London if you want to meet up
