Different languages, different ways of saying farewell.
French – Bon Voyage
Translates as “Good Journey”.
We are going on a journey, to a far flung place. We believe it will be good, for us as a family and hopefully the place we will go.
German – Auf Wiedersehen
Translates as “Until We Meet Again”.
Two years is a long time but we will be back in two years to see our friends and family. We hope this new life will stretch longer into the future but we will be back in two years.
English – Goodbye
Literally means “God be with you”.
We believe that God has been in this and will continue to be with us as we start out on this new adventure.
So in all these senses of goodbye we are heading out to Tanzania. We hope you can join us on this blog too!
By the way the word for Goodbye in Kiswahili is Kwaheri ( with luck!)
