Travelling with a cardboard cut out of my late husband Paul is never boring. On our travels we always have fun and meet some amazing people sharing our stories.
Whilst travelling I have asked the question on many occasions as to why would I want to put myself out there in the world doing what I’m doing?
There can be many reasons why:
- Meeting people
- Inspiring others
- Keeping a promise
- Making a difference
- Living life to the fullest
But at the end of the day it’s simple – because I loved him, Paul was my soul mate and I made a promise to him that I would travel
Recently we returned from a 7 week tour of the United Kingdom, Paris and Ireland with some interesting experiences and plenty of stories to tell.
Whilst travelling, we had the opportunity to be published in the Scottish Sun with a photo of cardboard Paul and I out the front of Edinburgh Castle, the Irish Mirror and being interviewed by PJ Cooghan twice on 96FM Cork radio and appearing on the Ray Darcy TV show in Dublin and having the BBC Wiltshire follow us around Stonehenge. The whole experience was surreal but also fulfilling as I was able to share our story and show others that life does continue, even when loosing a loved one.
