Cancun Beach, Mexico – 30 March 2013

Hi and welcome to our blog. We are a family of 5, and realising our dream and travelling around the world. We are starting from the UK and planning to go through Central & South America, New Zealand (where we might stop for a while) and back through Asia. We suspect this is going to take us at least a year, possibly (a lot) longer.

    Congratulations! We’re a family of 5 also preparing for our family gap year, departing for South America in July! I agree, preparations are a little overwhelming at times, especially now we are counting down in weeks but like you, it does make me feel alive! Good luck!

    This is for Amy: I’m so glad I got to share my trip to Volcano Pacaya with you. You are an inspiration for young girls all over the world and now an inspiration for an “old” lady. Give your parents a big hug and tell your sister I enjoyed helping make the secret message for her on the volcano.

      Hi Beth,

      Thanks for the lovely message. We really enjoyed the hike and yes indeed, Bella saw her message the next day.

      Amy was a bit envious as Bella apparently got seven marshmallows whereas we only got one!

      All the best,

      John and Amy.
