Adventure Planning and Food
We are negotiating a work-in-exchange-for-accommodation deal in Japan.
The owner of a 100-year-old farm house contacted me to ask if I’d be interested in managing the place over summer. I did a quick Google image search of the region and immediately decided this was on our must-do list.
I asked if we could come later, next year during the northern hemisphere spring. (Cherry blossoms, anyone?)
The reply just popped into my inbox — yes, spring works. What dates are you looking at?
A surge of elation and excitement and then … shit, will the kids eat Japanese food? I’d better take them out for Japanese tonight to see.
I am planning a big adventure for me and the kids, to be tacked on to our home exchange in France later this year. The adventure is exciting, yet daunting, because even though I love to travel, traveling solo with kids presents some unique challenges.
Over the next few months I’m going to be busy planning sanity-saving travel measures, such as homestays, farm stays and staying with friends and relatives around the world.
As for Japan — I’ve remembered Japanese noodles, sweet Japanese curry and lots and lots of rice. I think the kids will be OK.
But we’ll go for Japanese tonight anyway.
