Olga Valentin – Thnx for everything, u guys r my role models
@theplanetd Love the energy & commitment you guys have for your travel blog; great session at #SMWTOTravel
We had a great slide show here last night about one couple’s experience last year on the Cairo to Cape Town Tour d’Afrique bike race. It was standing room only. The presenters put on a really impressive show relating their experience of cycling from Cairo to Cape Town with the Tour d’Afrique race. Great images, wonderful presentation, and humour: just the sort of thing to inspire folks to undertake their own adventures.
We may have them back to for an encore.
Last night’s presentation was great! Beautiful photography and video clips, interesting descriptions and commentary and very informative both about Tour – Kris
It was a great show that was enjoyed by all in attendance. Congratulations to our dynamic adventure couple Ted Hains …
Awesome speech, you two. You’re definitely inspiring to us all. It reminds me of a saying~ There comes a time when you need to lead your life, not just follow it.
Smile, Ute and Itzik
I was at your presentation last night at MEC – congratulations on completing this monumental bike adventure, and on the great presentation, very professionally done, and extremely interesting and informative!
All the best to you – Hans
Thank you for a terrific show last night. Energetic, passionate, and educational… you delivered. I hope that your proposed true adventure TV series finds a market.
All the best. Ted Haines
I was at your presentation last night at MEC (I asked about what you might do differently if you knew then what you know now – re: illness, hunger, equipment) and found it inspiring and informative. After your presentation I wasn’t sure whether to look forward to the 2010 TDA ride with excitement or trepidation. In the end excitement won over and I still plan to ride despite the description of the Sudan sand and parasite warnings! I did appreciate the reality check about just how difficult the ride was at the time but just how rewarding it was at the end of each stage, border crossing and the finish.
Congratulations on last year’s ride and all the best with finding a distributor for your travel show. I am sure that I will see you both on TV in the future.
Kind Regards, Jenn
Dave and Deb. Great show! Just thinking of pedaling for a day in the sand was exhausting. Thanks Tim King
Just wanted congratulate Deb and Dave for a fantastic slide show they put on. A lot of info packed into about 70 mins. Images and video clips. Great narration – Nani
The really neat part of your story is that you decided up front to align yourself with a cause – this brought depth and texture to your journey – and this is the Me To We message – that each of us can make a difference in some small way. Many of their projects do focus on building schools in third world countries.
I personally am always interested in what people do for their work…the fact that you have jobs that are impacted by economic fluxes etc allowed you to take advantage of this opportunity…
I also imagine that your involvement with the film industry meant that you, or your contacts, had familiarity with media technologies that you used to create your show to tell your story…photos, videos, music, etc…
I thought your the pace of your presentation, your video/show with music,and the items you displayed of cultural interest were all fantastic. The best part was how you went back and forth in sharing your story with such enthusiasm, honesty and humour. I also like the fact that you took questions at the end.
I cannot think of anything to change or add…
Travelettes: “I think theplanetd are my new favorite people, I mean adventure couple. Fantastic Presentation”

Thanks so much for the inspiring presentation last night. You blew me away – you are both so professional in all aspects – I just know that your TV show will be a ‘hit’. I think you both need to go on the Talk Show circuit – and don’t ever worry about being boring – that is just not the case – your presentation is educational, inspiring and funny. You are both going to go along way. Good luck and we’ll talk to you soon – Love Mom 🙂 Thanks Mom!
