All the years of talking and wishing have finally brought us here. The impractical creatures that we are, a plan we’d been discussing more than a few times about driving through France became reality several weeks ago right after my job scare. Before all the nonsense with work started, we already made initial plans to do an extended tour of our southern neighbor, which then got derailed out of necessity and roared back to life after the dust at work settled. Knowing the logical proposition would’ve been to postpone the trip and build a nest egg instead, we pushed on bravely forward because in the battle between movement and hesitation, life should always come ahead.
We left at an eager 5 am this Sunday morning, the sun quietly peeking through with the promise of a clear, beautiful day. Let’s see what this new adventure brings.
