Globetrotting Family on Ottawa Morning Live

Technically, we won’t be “home” until tomorrow night but from the moment we crossed the border into New Brunswick it has felt a bit like we already are.

That feeling has only intensified the closer we get to Toronto.

Here in Ottawa, hanging with the Derickx, Catana, Buchanan and Wallace families has meant that coming home has had a much softer landing than expected.

All of our anxiety about what it would feel like to be home has been replaced with the knowledge that we really did carry home with us as we traveled and that we had so many good reasons to return to Canada. There are no words to express how grateful we are for our friends and supporters here in Ottawa and across the country.

Hanging with Kurt Stoodley at Ottawa Morning Live

This morning we also spent some time with our pals at Ottawa Morning Live.

A year ago I was in the studio to share an idea I had to take a big trip. A year later I was back with the whole family to share how much it has affected us. Big thanks to Kurt Stoodley, Lianne Laing (we missed seeing you today), Joanne Woo (missed you too!) and Ziyada Callender for keeping Ottawa up to date on all of our travels and having us in to share.

It was so amazing spending time with you guys this weekend but I honestly teared up a little looking at those pictures on TV! What an amazing year you’ve had! Your family is a total inspiration Heather!

We are so gratified that you took us on this extraordinary  experience. The pictures and anecdotes  you so generously supplied, were enough to  whet our  appetites and  trigger the dormant urge for  exploration. Thanks to you, the  travel bug has been  rekindled  and  not a moment too soon.

It  is so exciting to  know that  you are almost home. That has  to be  balanced  against the   intrigue  of  following  your  daily adventures which have been the  highlight  of  each day  over the  past year. 

Have  a safe  trip home … we will be waiting up  for you !!!!1
