Being busy is no excuse for not being productive. I should have made the time to write to you daily and keep my promise of “daily emails”, but I haven’t made it a priority.

This bothers me. I hope you’ll understand the slowdown.

There are a lot of things happening right now, such as trying to get my wife and I to Warsaw by December 7 — which isn’t as easy as it sounds, because technically she isn’t allowed to enter, which means we have to get her a Schengen Visa for another country — however; this is only possible after 12 business days of waiting and non-logical trajectory to Poland that involves multiple flights and land trips to and from Istanbul, Spain, and Germany. All within the next 28 days.

But, that’s not all.

There’s also a medical exam required as well as preparing all of our documents, because if there’s one doc missing, this entire trip is kaput.

So if you don’t hear from me for a couple days... it’s not because I’ve stopped. It’s because I’ve slowed down. While the emails have stopped, my brain is still working.

Looking forward to sharing more our saga continues. Until then, thank you for being part of the journey!
