We are choosing a different path than most, but it is ours. In the next year we will be getting rid of everything that cannot fit into two backpacks and carried on our backs. No room for the 9 totes of Christmas decorations. Instead we may experience Christmas in Norway or Argentina. No room for that nice stainless steel barbecue. Instead we will have to resort to street barbecue in Belize or a market in Vietnam. Cars? The adventure of railways in Eastern Europe or a tuk tuk ride in Bangkok await us.
