We are unsure if we can fit this in and the logistics since we can not take our two boys. Children must be 16 or older which are boys are not.
So, we have to figure out how to have the kids taken care for 2 weeks while we wander off to Nepal to spend a week building homes with Habitat for Humanity and then take about 3 days to tour. The rest of the time is taken up with just travel days.
We are still not convinced this is a good idea. The trip is in November 2014 and we have to sign up soon.
My biggest concerns are:
- How will we get the boys taken care of?
- What if something goes wrong at home with the kids?
- What if something goes wrong in Nepal?
- And many more.
Have you ever considered travelling without the kids for an extended time? How did it go? We have gone for 4 days before and that was great but this is 2 weeks.
Have you ever gone on a volunteering trip like this? How did it go?
Have you ever worked with Habitat for Humanity? How was that?
