With one of us working and one of us free to road test the Mercedes Sprinter van, I travelled in a car, on a plane, on a bus, on a train then in a car again to get to the place that was selling the van of our dreams, or so we thought. It did not work out as planned. After hours of yes let's get it, no it's not what we want, yes let's get it it's close enough, no it's not perfect, we we're exhausted. Our minds were so full of mixed feelings of uncertainty and van lust.  In the end we figured our doubts were justified and we should wait to find our perfect van.  So with the decision made, I had to get home.  So I went in a car, on a train, on a bus, on a plan and in a car again.  All this on 3 hours sleep, what a hugely draining day, both emotionally and financially.  This was one of those moments when you find out what your made of.  Although I did not feel strong at the time I am proud of myself for not giving into doing something that would makes us happy for the now, at the expense of what would make us happy for the future.  Have you ever experienced that, a moment of complete indulgence to satisfy your current cravings? My hand just went up!  It's so easy to give in for that instant gratification, I wanted so badly to drive home in our new van, to take it on this weeks adventure.  But I would always look at those few things that bothered me about it and never be happy with it.  Best to fight for what you want and know you haven't settled for less.  Our perfect van is out there and I'm excited to find it, when the time is right.
