Jet Planes and Journeys! Oh, and a few tears!

The Adventure Begins!

We shall miss that smile!


And the fun!

The years' travelling has begun!
The world these days really is an oyster for the young ones!
Just keep safe and come back to our little part of the world with wonderful tales of adventures and good times!
We are not the only ones who are going to miss her so much!


  1. Lovely pictures and happy memories. She'll come back with many many more (pictures and happy memories). But of course you'll miss that lovely smile.

    Thinking of you at this time


  2. Aah, must be a strange time for you.
    Best wishes
    Sue x

  3. It's extremely hard to let them fly the nest but she will return full of lovely tales of her travels, hurts like heck but you have to let them do it.

  4. We don't want to let them go from our protective and loving arms, do we? But we must, even though on one hand we are excited for them, and on the other, terrified. Our daughter has so far been to at least eight countries, is right now in Australia, and travelling to New Zealand later this month. Ah, to be young again and have wings...!

  5. Thank you so much for such wonderfully supportive comments and so much COMMON SENSE --- XX

  6. Linda - of course you'll miss your lovely daughter, and that beautiful smile, but she will have the most fantastic time and bring back wonderful memories to share with you, and the year will just fly by!


  7. I bet you are filled with mixed emotions Linda. Natural being a mom.
    Thinking of you,
    Hugs Suex

  8. Hang in there Mum, its only a long time at the beginning and mobile phones and Skype are wonderful. 9 years ago D2 went travelling in Europe and America for a year and we had no contact for the first 3 months, a bit (no make that a lot) worrying. But all worked out well and they had a wonderous time

  9. I can only imagine how you must be feeling right now. What an exiting time for her though.
    Hang in there, I know she will be fine.

  10. Hi Linda...have only just got around to some blog reading and ...OMG..I know how you must be feeling! Nich was only away for 6 weeks and that was bad enough!
    But you know, time flies and Briony will be back before you know it, full of her tales of adventure!
    Here's hoping that she has the most wonderful time! x ;-)
