We are now two months out and the lists are being written but I’m afraid to start checking things off in case it means we really are doing this! We are planning to head to Africa for 3 months and then on to Holland and then ??? Crazy. Not always socially acceptable. Irresponsible? I don’t know…these things are what keep me up at night. I was losing sight of why we’re doing this until I read your note. Thank you.

To others of you who are reading this — Rachel’s family maintained a blog that I read in preparation for our trip. They’ve now published their articles and photos in a book, which I’ve ordered and am looking forward to receiving so I can glean all its wisdom and inspiration!

Two years in two minutes! I so rememeber the ‘out of control’ feeling that there was just no way that it would all get done, but you know what? That’s what makes it so much sweeter when you’re on the plane.
The fact that you have to fight so hard to make it fit, that you’re not 19 with no commitments anymore and that you are troubled by parental guilt at 4am (what if they get sick, fall behind in school, never make friends again – it will be all MY FAULT) is all part of making your trip even more amazing than you dared hope.
We still feel totally empowered by the achievement of just making it out the front door with no future plans, let alone the incredible 12 months that followed.
I will of course be following your blog avidly, please do drop me a line if you have any questions…
Best wishes
Rachel, Chris, Fin and Sadie xxxx

I think this site looks fabulous–even if it is “under construction.” You’ve got me hankering for you to get up and go, just so that I can follow your adventures through your postings!

Love to all,

–David
