Have you ever had to keep a secret of great magnitude and couldn't tell anyone?
Have you ever had to walk around trying to stop yourself from smiling in case anyone would notice?
Have you ever had to feign innocence when your friends and colleagues confronted you about something you just can't share with them- yet?
If you said YES to any of these then you have an idea what it's been like for us for the last 3 months.
We were about ready to explode!
Before we tell you exactly what our secret was, let's backtrack a bit and follow the clues we've been leaving behind to let you know what we were up to:
Back in September, we had bought a book together. Not just a book but THE BOOK. The book that got both of us talking and bonding over the same inexplicable need. The book that intensified our drive to realize a dream...a passion. When we bought the book, we weren't just talking anymore. We actually did something about it. Albeit in the form of a rather small and heavily discounted purchase.
Most recently, we started giving more direct clues by posting a countdown on our Facebook page. What countdown you say? Check out the If you know your ABCs... Album.
We even put our plans into pictures through our Vision Boards. That was very tricky of us, wasn't it?
And to top it off, we added a little giveaway at the bottom of this blog. A countdown timer!
Bet you didn't notice that now did ya? You must be slapping your forehead by now. How could you have been so dense? The clues were all over the place!
Yes, it was very difficult for us to keep a secret this BIG. We got tired of the whispering and the scheming and the unavoidable slips (Ooops!). When all we wanted to do was shout to the world:
WE QUIT OUR JOBS TO GO ON A BIG TRIP!!!
We'll let that sink in for a few minutes...
We have done the unimaginable. We turned our backs on a cushy job, steady paychecks and great colleagues. We have given up the comfort and stability of our 'normal' lives to go on a Great Adventure. And we guarantee this is gonna be wilder than the theme park ride!
IT'S THE REAL THING, BABY!

Chichi will be saying buh-bye to her cute 'fasyon' clothes to live in backpacker's uniform of hippie pants, slippers and tank tops - err scratch that. No doubt she will somehow find a way to let her chic self shine through.
We will be meeting up in Singapore by early March to start our Southeast Asian jaunt. We'll post the itinerary soon so stay tuned for that.
So now that you know our secret, do you think you can keep it? Do you think you can keep something this BIG to yourselves?
We know you can't! So you might as well spread the word. Do us a favor and share our secret with others. Post it on facebook, repost it on your blogs and walls, Retweet it, Digg it, Stumbleupon it and even just plain old-fashioned tell your friends about it. We'd love that!
See you on the road,
Sole Sisters Lois and Chichi
