What an amazing journey to follow! Kudos Bigfella! What you're doing, and the way you're doing it, is exactly the way I want to do it, to experience the real experience, to make real friendships with faraway people, to help where possible and to come home (America for me) with a greater appreciation for our blessings where I can't.
It's a shame you have to censor some of your postings, as it ends up being a "sanitized" view of your experiences. If only more people could really see and understand how fortunate we are - so many just have no idea.
Just fantastic! You are truly blessed; what an amazing wife you have, and your kids seem like they are quite well rounded like their dad! Just fantastic!
