Landing in Sydney - that view flying in over our beautiful city and coastline still gives us goose bumps, no matter how many times we have seen it.
The last nine months have given us memories and experiences that we will treasure for a lifetime. We have strengthened our bonds with family and friends on the other side of the world and we have made new friends along the way, too. We have been challenged and we have learned a lot. We still want to be married after spending 24hours a day together for 270 days!
We have suffered immense heartache with the loss of our beautiful friend Lisa Maree, and learned that even when life feels like it is just too hard to go on there is strength from somewhere within that makes you get up and face another day, no matter how much you are hurting. There were plenty of days where it would have been easier to just come home, but with the love and support of our incredible family and friends we were able to finish what we set out to achieve: a journey that Lisa encouraged us to take.
Thank you to all of you for sharing our adventure with us – the skype sessions, the blog comments, the facebook likes, the laughs along the way and the tears we needed to cry. As if we didn’t know it already, 2012 has reconfirmed how amazing our family and friends are and we cannot wait to catch up with you all.
This is now our last blog entry, the end of this particular journey, and we dedicate it to Lisa Maree:
Darling Lisa - from the tango you will never dance in Argentina, to the wonders of the world you will never see in the Middle East, we carried you with us and thought of you always. We have experienced some of the hardest days of our life struggling to understand why you are no longer here and pray every day that you are at peace, dear friend.
You were the ultimate holiday girl – always having the next one in mind before you had finished the last. We hope we did you proud with our journey…it is in your memory that we dedicate our blog, our record of the ultimate holiday. Safe travels beautiful girl, until we meet again.
