And we are off!

After days of saying heartfelt "goodbyes" to friends and family plus packing, sorting and giving things away, we are ready to leave Winnipeg and head to Cairo. 

 Conrad dropped us off at the airport this sunny and cold morning. As soon as we passed security we found ourselves a sunbeam to sit in while we start our waiting travel game. 

The photo above was taken yesterday in a different sunbeam. 

We've stored some of our stuff in boxes and have numbered each box which is cross referenced to a master list of contents. The theory is that if we want something later, we'll be able to find it easily. 

We used the same system when we went to Sudan for 3 years and Laos for 6 years and it works for us.
