... have been away, but its now time to return to our real home, rest a little, catch up with friends and family, before we all too quickly embark on the next chapter of our lives. There will be more adventures, of that we are sure, we just need to knuckle down and make them happen.
There are so many things that we will miss about being away and our adventures together but we thought it would be fun to make a list of the things that we won't miss :
... There isn't a buggy or a pram to be seen, anywhere. How do they propagate here? Is there some kind of unwritten rule that Brit's don't take pre-school age children outside. And once they are school-age, do they only travel with their class? I mean, what am I missing here? Seriously, not a baby to be found. Very weird (despite the fact that people look at us as though we're the weird ones). Now I have my own idea as to why this ...

On our epic world adventure, apart from India, we hadn't spent more than a month in one country. But with obtaining visas in London, a priority, along with the festive season, we would have spent around six weeks in the UK. Being our third visit to the UK since we left home, this country felt like a second home. Before we knew it, it was time for us to farewell the UK for the last time on our world adventure, so why not do it in style.
