Something we teachers know a lot about! However, holiday prep is a lot more fun than lesson prepping! And boy, have we done some prep! Hours spent on the Internet looking for flight deals, the best car deal, most unique places to stay.
It’s 8 weeks until the end of term and therefore also 8 weeks until our big road trip. We’ve all been really busy at school, and pass like ships in the night (even the Other Half, whom I both live and work with!?)
We are a slightly odd group of travellers: 3 British teachers, based in the Middle East, consisting of a married couple and a single, straight guy, but we reckon it’ll be fun. Single Friend might change his mind once he’s spent a day in the car with me “navigating” and Other Half driving! We don’t argue much, but the car can be a flashpoint for our different views on what good driving constitutes.
We have laughed about whether we will be sick of the sight of each other after 6 weeks on the road. Let’s hope we’re still laughing at the end of the trip and there’s not a stoney silence!
I’m not good with spontaneous so we’ve pretty much booked everything along the way, leaving only a few nights “open” so we can stay somewhere spur of the moment. I just hope we don’t end up having to stay at Bates’ Motel!
