The Beginnings of a Crazy Idea

Sam and Addie on Vatnajökull, Iceland

I can remember the exact moment I posed the question to my husband, Sam. We were in a 4WD Jeep going up the side of Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest glacier. Granted, I should have been completely focused on the fact that we were driving up the side of a glacier in July (pretty freaking amazing), but I’m working on the whole living in the moment thing–and I was looking out the window as I was daydreaming. I turned to face Sam and asked, “Do you think it would be possible for us to take the kids out of school for a year and just travel?”
