"SPENDING THE KIDS INHERITANCE"
Well thats what the kids accuse us of - so, (Skid & Skim) ski/daddy and ski/mummy are doing just that.....
2 Brits off around the world on August 19th 2007 and don't they just hate us for it!!!!
No! - They think it's great that a couple of oldies have got the guts to go backpacking for 12 months.
We are no strangers to travelling and have already experienced white water rafting in Colorado, "Skim" has also been brave enough to do a bungee jump.
OK we are in our 50s, but it doesn't mean we are going to sit back and wait to die.
Life is for living, so bring it on..................
This will be our postcard to our family and friends....
UPDATE 25th February 2009.
We've travelled the world, had the time of our lives and made loads of friends along the way.
Been back in the country for 5 months and have now been diagnosed with terminal cancer with 2 years to live.
Shock yes, but I will not give in, and no I am not sitting back to wait to die. I am going to continue to enjoy the hell out of this life and make some magical memories along the way.
This will be our blog to the end of my travels, then will continue with my husbands further adventures. So watch out guys we could be heading your way...
A bit advice for you guys out there who are thinking "one day I'd like to travel" just do it, don't drag your heels - Do it before it's too late. We've had a blast and will continue to do so.....
Avril (aka Skim)
Then back to work
