Somewhere along the line my parents and I realised that a lot of things were going to change between 2011 and 2012. We also made the decision not to sit idly by but to farewell the old and welcome the new with a bit of spirit!
We travelled tens of thousands of kilometres through five different countries. Journeyed through places that were foreign and familiar. Saw family, new friends and old friends.
There were a few tears and lots of laughter.
It took planes, trains, cars and buses as well as people from all over the world to get us where we needed to go. It also took a lot of time, money and patience.
Like most voyagers we learned many things along the way and as
usual, the most important lesson was very close to home; that it
didn't matter where time or money would take us, we would always
have each other.
