The Journey

It’s late on a winter’s day and the boat has set sail. The assuring shore is slowly fading away in the night, swallowing everything in its darkening cold blue, and earth and sky are melting into each other in a blurring vision. Soon it will disappear in the distance.

You’re holding on to a promise of hope and love, and you’re leaving everything you know to chase it. You’ve never feel any lonelier, yet you know that now that you’re going out at sea there is no turning back. 

The Journey has begun.


Life is a journey. A big mysterious journey. Sometimes you know exactly where you are going, and some other times you have no clue at where you are headed. You get at a crossroad and have to choose your way, and maybe you feel at loss. Some decisions we make will mould the rest of our lives, just like the decisions we won’t take.

Emma and I have decided to embark on a new journey, we’re making plans and we know plans always change. We once saw our destination, like in a faraway dream, and now we are holding on to that dream, because we are hopeless dreamers.

This new year will be a year of hard work for us, our boat has just set sail and we don’t really know if we’ll ever make it to the other shore. We are far more interested in the journey, as it’s along the way that the most amazing things will happen. Of course doubts and fear are always there, buzzing in our minds and tempting us to come back.

There is no turning back. Once you’ve left, you can only move forward. Life will never be the same anyway.

We do hope you’ll enjoy your journey this new year, whatever is it and wherever you are headed. May it be filled with hope, dreams and love.
