This is when the reality hits. That you are going to be away, away for quite a while. September and October 2014 were the ‘tell’ months. This is when we disclosed our travel plans to family and friends. The results were a mix – from astonishment to excitement and from silly to brave and encouraging.
Molly and I had meetups with friends and relatives planned for most of the weekends in Sep 14 and Oct 14. This was also the time when we spent a majority of our time in completing the checklist of all items that need to be completed before we leave. As Monty have 2 months planned stay in India while Molly in UK, few items from our planning checklist were moved to last few weeks.
