Between the Miles

 

Omaha Beach
Sunset at Omaha Beach, New Zealand

This is Dylan and his cousin Gemma. They are only a few months apart in age but are separated by 11,000 miles. They met for only the second time when we visited New Zealand in May.

Watching the children enjoy the waves wash them away at sunset is one of the most cherished memories of our trip to Omaha Beach. This video captures their time together:

The song playing in the video is from the band AsWeFall. It reminds me of the sea, the ocean and the miles of water that separates me from family and old friends. Listen to the full version.

The highlights of our trip

After 3 1/2 months away and 7 countries visited we are safely back in sunny London. We compressed our trip in this video. Very grateful to have such good fortune, health and weather along the way. Big thank you to all family and friends who followed us along the journey, those who hosted us (The Rutters, The Allans), friends that joined us and to those who led the way before us, inspired us to make this dream come true. This would not have been possible without the tips and tricks of Almost Fearless, Never Ending Voyage, Till The Money Runs Out, With 2 Kids In Tow, It’s Backpacking We Go.
