“Home, the spot of earth supremely blest, A dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest.” rm

We knew one day we would have to set foot in Botswana.

On april 28th a few years ago, Geoff was given, by a great friend, a book entitled 366 Days From Above. A fantastic collection of aerial photographs taken all over the world to inspire adventure, travels and dream. Geoff and I started dreaming when we realized that photos of the Okavango Delta in Botswana were on the pages of both our birthdays. Only 3 photos of Botswana are found in the entire book and the third is on my father’s birthday. (On attend ta visite papa…) When Simon introduced the project of World Spine Care to Geoff, he jumped aboard with both feet, an open mind, a dreaming heart and a family more than ready to follow. Later in the conversation Geoff learned that the pilot project would bring us to Botswana. He then knew World Spine Care was destined to succeed and that we would be a part of it. So as Geoff, Liam and I are now creating our home in Botswana, we remember the dream. This blog was created for whoever wants to follow the artistic expression of our journey and share the adventure.

Thank you Sylvain (www.gabatine.com) for creating the template for our dream.

    Hi Soph and Geoff –

    You can bet I’ll be reading your blog! Yay! I loved reading about how your Botswana dream was born. :)

    I’m reading the Happiness Project right now and reflecting on how the way I approach each day impacts on my life. I’m so inspired by your dream, my friends. Thank you for sharing the story of how it is playing out.

    Much love to you both and to sweet Liam.

      Hi Shannon,
      Finally have a few minutes to reply! Thank you for your soul-filling comment. Daily life is not always easy when facing the unfamiliar, the changing, new rhythms and elements.
      I certainly find inspiration in your Happiness Project, please post more minutes :)
      You are an inspiration, thank you. Will be in Ottawa this Tuesday for a month, any change of seeing you there?
      light & love

    Salut Sophie, Geoff et Liam!

    Quelle belle aventure qui commence.
    C’est très émouvant de t’entendre raconter la coïncidence des photos avec vos dates de naissance et l’invitation de Michel à vous retrouver pour compléter le rêve!
    C’est très inspirant de voir des familles entière partir à l’aventure.
    Ça nous donne le goût à nous aussi de repartir.

    On attend avec impatience le déroulement de votre installation!

    On vous embrasse,

    Nell, Gérémi, Marc et Linda
