The Journey Begins

We're off! In a few hours we start a long car ride that will take us to a very long check in process (11 bags & 2 babies, eek!) that will take us to a potentially comedic pass through airport security that will funnel us to a long wait at a gate that will load us on to a10 hour flight to London.

Deep breath.

Then we'll take the metro ('tube') into London, check in to our hotel, Chris will go off for meetings while I manage the little wreck remnants of our children before dinner & hopefully some semblance of sleep before another tube to the airport, another go through security, another wait at a gate, and an 8hr flight to Nairobi.

Total travel time = approximately 52 hours. Well, hope someone does something useful with this week that I'm losing :)

While it seems we're embarking on a big journey, we feel in many ways that the journey is actually about to come to an end. All of the planning, job applying, packing, thinking, praying, saying good bye...it's all over and now we get to begin.

So, since I need to finish packing...here's to new beginnings! We'll write from the other side :)


  1. Hi, I'm Lorilin, Chris' old neighbor from waaay back in the day. Just wanted to say good luck!

  2. Can't wait to read the next blog! Miss you at Hillsides :) Blessed you guys are the reason I am here! Thinking of you often.
