Yerba Buena Carousel, San Francisco

The past few days have come and gone like a whirlwind. We had so many things to do that we didn’t notice how fast time went by. And in less than 24 hours we will be on our way to Fiji…

This is a short list of what we did here. Doctors appointments and Dentist appointments. Shir got her cast off and is feeling great. Meet friends. unpack from the RV trip and repack for Fiji. Play with Uncle Benny. Pack some more for Australia and New Zealand. Meet more friends. Pack for Israel. Birthday party. Uncle Benny. One quiet night in San Francisco without the kids. Day visit to San Francisco with the kids. Emotional meeting with Veronica the nanny. More friends at Golden gate Park. uncle Benny. More packing. will it all fit? Will we be overweight?

We are all tired and a bit stressed from all the running around. Paola hopes the kids will be well behaved on the long flight to Fiji. We are all looking forward to some serious downtime on the islands. I can’t believe I am saying it, but after driving 10,000 miles and seeing half the US parks and Canada, I look forward to spending an entire week on an Island doing nothing.

Communication from Fiji will be intermittent at best, as the infrastructure there is not up to par yet. So don’t look for postings and hundreds of uploaded pictures every day. we’ll do our best to let you know what we are up to.

Good night,

-Hemi

Watching Teletubbies in our hotel room in Foster City

 

The first part of our adventure came to an end today. We returned our RV after 3 and a half months, and drove back to our “home” base in Foster City. A twitch of nostalgia for Paola and me, perhaps for Ron as well. (more…)

Lat night in a campground, near Oakland California

It’s hard to believe that 3 and a half months have passed by so fast. Tonight is our last night in the RV and we are very close to our starting point, in a quiet secluded nature sanctuary just 5 miles from central Oakland. (more…)
