In October last year my husband was surprised, and delighted, to receive an unexpected letter in the mail which began….
"Message From the Woolf Fisher Trustees
The Woolf Fisher Trust is pleased to offer you a Woolf Fisher Fellowship for a 10 week study visit to North America, the UK and some countries in Europe in 2016.
Your trip will include a week long course at the Harvard Principals’ Centre in Boston…"
This precipitated a lot of excitement investigating what the Fellowship was about, what this study visit could entail, and whether the logistics could be managed at the home end.
And the big surprise for me was that the terms of the Fellowship included me to tag along, if I was so inclined (or invited)!
Fast forward to April and this post sees us packed and ready to head to the airport, squishing clothes for Summer and Winter, work and play into one suitcase and hopefully have room for some shopping.
First stop, Hawaii.
