In 2012, after suddenly losing her mother to cancer, Rachael travelled to Paris where she left 60 handwritten postcards around the city in her memory. Accompanied by a blog, this heartfelt project was turned into a book, published by Simon and Schuster in 2015.
This time Rachael is heading to Australia for 3 weeks where she will travel to Melbourne, Adelaide, Cape Tribulation, Whitsunday and with a final night in Brisbane.
I will handwrite a message on 60 postcards – explaining that it is a project to remember lost loved ones, that grief is universal and shouldn’t be shouldered alone – and scatter them around the places I visit. I will leave my email on for people to get in touch. I will wait and worry and hope that someone may find one. I will probably drink some beers along the way.
