Have you ever wondered why we are here? Have you ever wondered what life is all about, and what we are supposed to be doing? Have you ever dreamt of escaping the ‘Rat Race’ of day to day life that we all unconsciously follow day to day?
These are the very questions we have been asking our self’s this year – we have had a few close family members pass away, making us realise how quick life can be taken from us. Call it an early mid life crises if you like – regardless, we have found ourself’s questioning life…how short it is, and whether working 60 hours a week, and waiting until we retire is the way forward for us.
We love being different – for example both of us love our music Ska, Jazz and Old Skool Garage, rock ,80’s, 90’s if its got a beat you can dance to chances are we like it, Our ipods are random, one minute we are playing Disney, and the next we are raving to 90s dance music.
We have already done our fair share of travelling, Glen spent alot of his teens travelling America – while myself (Gemma) has also done a little bit of travelling to Thailand, which was the most amazing experience and recommend it to anyone!
We must put our hands up and say – we have never followed society! – We have our own way of living, our own way of thinking and our own ideas….some people think we are crazy for not liking what everyone else likes – but we dare to be different and dare to take a risk.
So we have decided as of January 28th 2019, we will break the rules of society and the rules of everyday life, and we’ll be putting everything in storage and travelling the world! Yes we are crazy, and yes we do not know what we are going to do at the end of all this – but I tell you this – Life is short, you could die tomorrow, life is all about experiences and we are here on this earth to live life to the fullest.
So what about Ellie and Maisie I hear you ask? Yes they are certainly coming with us! And YES they will probably drive us insane at times along the way – we know that it will not be all cupcakes and rainbows – but it will most defiantly be the best experience of their life’s.
So, our plans for the next few months are very busy! We will be giving up the lease on our house, selling most of our possessions, aswell as our car! We are also trying to loose some weight (as we are a little overweight at the moment), making sure that we are fit and healthy ready for all the travelling plans we have ahead…We will be blogging about our weight loss too! so keep an eye out!
So that’s us and our crazy plans, I hope you all follow us with our adventure!
Lots of Love
The England Family – Gemma, Glen, Ellie and Masie
