Les Vacances (Vacation)

October 17, 2014

Today was our last day of school and now we commence our first two week break!!!  Schools across France take a two-week break for Toussant Holiday.  Of course, in the United States, we don’t celebrate November 1, aka All Saint’s Day, but rather the cultural focus is on the eve of this day, what we call Halloween.  That’s not to say Halloween isn’t celebrated here, but rather, the vacation centered around this date is called Toussant (which literally translates to All Saints).

So, for us, our goal is take advantage of the awesome opportunity of living in Europe and use our vacations wisely, to the best of our ability and pocketbooks.

And what do we Linds do best?  Why, road trip, of course!

You’ll remember we began our marriage with a road trip, moving all of our belongings from Washington State to Alaska, up the AlCan.  Then, as we raised a support team for our first year in Congo, we spent five weeks on the road, with a 2.5 year old and a four month old.  We became pros as we travelled last summer on an epic 102-day, 15,000 mile road trip, spanning 38 states with a four year old, a two year old and a pregnant lady (me).  So, a little weakfish road trip through four or so countries in Europe…why not?

The break will be very nice – not that we won’t be using and studying our French, because we surely will!  And pray for us…and follow along as we post pictures from the road (and maybe even a few blog posts).
