I was just standing in our local supermarket with a jar of peanut butter in my hand when I received THE app. ‘Are you home? I have news..’ Without my groceries I sprinted back to my bike and drove home as quickly as possible I don’t think I ever peddled as hard. My hubby had news! Our life was about to change! Where would we be going? Just a few hundred meters more and I would know..

And that was the start of our adventure to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A long road to unknown territory. A road that would start with saying goodbye to a lot of what we hold very dear. A road that is sure to have peaks and dips, but which we are very excited to start on.

Have you ever had a good look at the back side of your eggs sunny side up? Instead of shiny white with a dark yellow cloud of yummieness it is a greyish white with brown spots. The desire to eat would just about leave you. As a family we do not deny the less attractive side of our adventure but we do try to focus on the positive, the fun and the beauty of this adventure. We are going for the sunny side up!
