Introducing the Big Family Trip


So here’s the plan. We are going on a Big Family Trip. We call it that because we’re a Big Family (me & Sophia and Dave 8, Jenny 6, Emma 3, Peter 1), and because it’s a Big Trip (6 months, 8 countries)!

The purpose of the trip is to expand our horizons, be together as a family, and have fun! I’ll be doing a little bit of work on the road (2-3 days per month), but most of the time will be family time.

Our 6 month journey will take us to Denmark, China, Japan, Thailand, New Zealand, Peru, Brazil, and British Virgin Islands. The detailed plan is here. But the plan is only a plan, and it is pretty flexible. The journey itself is the goal, not the destination!

I don’t know how much we’ll be blogging, but when we do write stuff it will be right here! So if you want to keep an eye on us, this is the place to be!

    Looks cool. We did something similar last year, although it was more of a medium-sized-family-trip since we are a medium sized family and spent 3 months travelling rather than 6. But we also went to Japan, NZ and Brazil. Our blog is here if you are interested:

    Good luck. Are you coming to Brazil only fun or for work too?

    I’m teaching a Certified ScrumMaster course. Samuel Crescêncio is organizing it. Other than that it will be mostly fun & family stuff.

    Wow what a trip, I’m so impressed. Btw, I found some of Henriks scrum documents from 2007 in the process documents at my new job =) It was nice too see a name I knew.Have a great trip!!

  6. Just a note to say this is really neat, Henrik. As a father of 4 children myself I hope this trip affords you some life-long memories with your family. Safe travels and I look forward to seeing some pictures! Your friend in Atlanta. Scott

    Thanks Sofia & Scott! We’re almost halfway through the trip and things are working out great. The second half of the trip will be very different (more adventure), feeling excited about that! We’ll see how it works out.

    Thanks Henrik for your books and advice. We just came back to Cambridge, UK from Chicago and Florida, Christmas on the beach was awesome. Have a great time.
