Back to ‘normal’!

Posted By: Baigrie Family in Going Home, The Chronicle    

10 weeks and 4 days after our arrival home to Australia, life is back to ‘normal’.  I’m still amazed by how quickly we have just slotted back into life.  Maybe because we have returned to the same house, same jobs, same school, same dog.  Same Same But Different, as they would say in Cambodia.  All that sameness but a big tinge of difference too.

Missing the travel life!

Posted By: Baigrie Family in General, Going Home, The Chronicle    

Sorry to all my readers who are wondering what has become of me.  I’ve been swamped by ‘normal’ life.  My head is just starting to get above the water after so many things to do upon returning to Oz.  Don’t look in my spare room because it still houses all the ‘stuff’ I haven’t housed yet.  Mostly our home is back to what it was before we left.  We are all back at work,...

L.A. stopover and home

Posted By: Baigrie Family in General, Going Home, United States of America    

We arrived into Los Angeles about 6.30 pm after travelling all day from Columbus Ohio via Baltimore Maryland.  Still can’t quite work out why we had to fly from the Midwest to the east coast to get to the west coast but never mind.  After all our flying experience we were totally prepared for a long day of travel with all gadgets recharged; water bottles ready and a supply...

Posted By: Baigrie Family in General, Going Home    

Hi all.  The countdown to our return to Oz has begun.  Yesterday marked 5 weeks until we touchdown on Australian soil again and we will have clocked up 342 days of travel.  Wow.  Hard to believe that we are getting so close to the end of our massive journey.  We are all feeling ready to come home and see what Australian life has to offer us again but still have the wonders...

Preparing for home

Posted By: Baigrie Family in General, Going Home, Preparation    

As we countdown the weeks until we go home, we are starting to think about a new list of things to do.  Whilst this list is not as big a list as when we were preparing to leave the country, it is still a substantial and important list of ‘stuff’.  Here are some of the things that we need to consider to make the transition to our ‘regular’ lives of work, school and running a...

Day 171 – The half-way mark!

Posted By: Baigrie Family in General, Plans, Update    

You know when you get to the end of a year and you think ‘Where did that year go?’  My greatest fear before we embarked on our journey was that we would get to the end of our year and we would feel it went too fast.  Well, this day makes the half way point of our round the world adventure and we are all still alive and well and it feels like it is moving at just the right...
