d-23 Enough Driving Already

This whole experience is becoming more and more surreal and I’m sure there will be many moments of wonder and reflection.. my favourite phrase lately seems to be “we’re really doing this!”
– it’s been a year in the making, with plenty of highs and lows, and many moments where we’ve questioned whether we could actually pull this off, well at least I have, Kristina quickly pulls me up with a swift – “we are NOT postponing”.

I’ll write some more soon about the just what has gone in to making this possible. There are soo many amazing people getting involved and/or supporting this project, and they all have the own stories which I hope to be able to share with you as we go.

Last night we took our new roof for a test run – this will be our home for the next 12 months, minus the mattress and doona 😉

The count down to the start line continued today with a lengthy stint in the drivers seat. Landing back at Manly Beach is always so refreshing, it is such a beautiful piece of the world, and of course its just wonderful to catch up with good friends, including the welcoming walls of chateau Evans!

Tomorrow we’ll slip in some exercise on some of our favourite trails around the Northern Beaches. Then continue the drive to Canberra where we will base for the next week finalising logistics and last minute gear preparation, returning next weekend to Sydney for the Bon Voyage Australi! All welcome.

Stay tuned early next week some flavour of Brazil as we get in to the rhythm.. video time.
