A year away from home? Sure why not...
It was the morning that we left Cork for our around the world trip. Our bags were packed (just about). We had said our good byes and it was time to head to the airport. The initial flights were Cork to Heathrow and onwards from Heathrow to Rio de Janeiro. Excitement started to kick in but also the realisation that we´re leaving so many people at home. Our attitude at the time was, let´s give it a go and at least then we´ll have no regrets. Eoin´s Mum collected me at home at 5:40. Our flight to Heathrow was at 7.15. We had a few hours stop over before our flight to Rio at 13:15. All went according to plan. We were finally on our way!
