An untimely end

It is with much grief that we have to announce the far to early end of our journey. Casper's condition is far worse then we first thought - he was called by his doctor this morning and according to him, he can have a heart attack or cardiac arrest anytime without warning. Therefore we are forced to go back to Denmark immediately to get him under the right treatment. 

We are now in Schipol Airport, Amsterdam waiting for a plane home, still trying to comprehend this unexpected situation. We have been planning and looking forward to this trip for a very long time, and it is obviously against our will to give up and go home so early. But in a situation were one of the participants health is seriously at risk, we could see no other way. Jonathan thought of going on by himself at first, but we decided that, since we have done all of this together as team, we also end it as a team.

Even in this sad moment, we must try to remember all the good experiences we have had this last week, and all the great people we have met. 

We thank you all, friends, family, sponsors and all the people that have been following us, for you overwhelming support. We are most grateful! 

We hope to be able to continue the journey some other time - hopefully with greater fortune. 

Until then take care.

Over and out
Casper & Jonathan
