    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face;
    the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    Wow… it’s time!

    I feel so excited (and a little bit nervous… always the best combination, I find) for you both.

    Sheelah, it was a pleasure to meet you through the 30DC. Your project there was inspiring and you now continue to inspire as you follow your dreams, off on your big adventure. I wish you both all the luck and love in the world with your journey. I am certain you will create many lifelong memories for both yourselves and all those you meet along the way. What an adventure!

    I look forward to following your progress here and please continue to share any creative projects or delights you find on your travels.

    Bon voyage!
    EnJOY!!!
    With love,
    Julia xxxx

    All the best,..!!!!!
    The adventure is about to begin, and memories will be created which you will cherish for a lifetime. Enjoy every second, and remember life is not a rehearsal, so set the GPS, point the compass, and live your dream…..!!!

    Dearest Sheelah,

    I wish you the very best for your adventure… welcome to living the dream! Make the most of it by having as much fun as you can stand and documenting it so you can enjoy it again and again later on.

    This is our time.

    I hope your (short term) itinerary will allow you a few days after you set off, to rest/sort out any minor hitches/adapt to life on the road. You are embarking on a humungus journey and could probably do with a period of taking it easy before the going gets tough. Glad you are starting in Europe, where you should be able to identify/get/fix anything which is not quite right. Our love and admiration and strongest support go with you.
    Alles van die beste, safe journey
    Tim

    Dear Both

    It was a real pleasure to meet you at the Show on Saturday, and a true inspiration to hear you both talk so honestly and movingly about your ups and downs and excitement and fears. Bon chance, bon courage and bon voyage!

    Looking forward to the first update, I hope all has gone according to plan so far and you are happily pitched up in Denmark.

    All the love and luck in the world
