“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao Tzu
So, today we bought a bus. This is a picture of it. It is lovely. It is big. It goes VROOM (loudly).
This is the first step along the new path of our house on wheels, that will circumnavigate our fair country of Australia for 18 months.
Technically, it could be said that a journey of thirty thousand miles begins with buying a bus. But that isn’t as catchy.
Thus far, all the big changes this year have been endings. Selling our house was the biggest of these, but other, smaller changes within the business and personally are also endings of a sort.
Today, that changed, and we took our first forward step into a beginning. In a strange way, it feels like the journey I’ve taken over the past 12 months of discussing, announcing and planning our Around Australia Trip, has finally started.
PS. I have more photos, and I will prepare a proper blog post for you soon, I promise.
