Kurt: Our trip plans

by in Blog

globeWe plan to travel overseas much of the next twelve months. Hank, Nadine and I departed Austin on June 9, 2013, flying to Europe. Sarah will join us in early July for parts of the trip. We plan to travel in Europe, South America, Africa, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. We will try to keep a somewhat flexible itinerary. If we hear about a great place to visit, we may change our plans and go there. We hope to meet people from other places and understand a little bit about their lives and what is important to them. Feel free to send us information about specific places or people you think we might like to visit. Some of our goals for the trip are to develop a greater appreciation for what our family has in Austin; to begin to understand what life is like for other people where they live; to have Hank and Nadine understand the value of learning another language; to spend time with our kids before they grow up; and to have fun and relax.

If you want to see the other blog posts from our trip, they are under the ARCHIVES tab located at the top of the home page.

    Your field trip sounds wonderful. You have two very articulate children. If your adventures take you to Japan, I have a good friend who lives there and would make a very good guide. Her son is studying law and would enjoy talking with you. When John and I were in Tokyo, she spent several days showing me around. She thinks that your mom is a typical Texan–little does she know.
    Happy travels, Pat

    The Schroeder (Lori, Kevin, Jack and Ella) think your plans are totally awesome and hope we can help out in Brazil or New England!

    If you decide to go to Vietnam, let me know. I have contacts. Also in Singapore.
