This is the first I had heard of them. What a great memorial service they had posted. Pineapple- yes I agree- GO NOW.
I seriously contemplate loading up our young family to travel but the logistics get complicated. Right now we are working towards a several week (3-4?) trip on the boat this summer as a hybrid plan. I have always been drawn to long distance travel and getting off the beaten path....it's in my blood it seems. But then I factoring in the investment properties, the house, being the sole provider for my wife and our 2 young kids, etc. etc. We could do it now without issue but it is the "what then" question afterwards....spend savings and travel or be prudent and go for shorter trips to "ensure" (haha- NOTHING is ever "sure!") long term position for the family.....etc. etc. Problem is, I'd just as soon be barefoot and shirtless somewhere instead of working. When I traveled, it was always the less fortunate and poorer people that had more joy and would go out of their way to show kindness and hospitality. Those with money rarely did (but sometimes they did). The quandary is how to raise children that embrace the beauty and mystery of the world and creating life situations to show them that while at the same time providing for them long term (private school, college, etc.).
The link of the York's site though reminds me of this inspiriting site I have grown to appreciate (the wife/mom subsequently passed away as well):
