I jump in after a lot of lurking in the backstage of this forum to wish good luck to anyone who will be able to shake Tom's hand next September.
I wish I'd be with you guys, offering a bottle of good Italian wine to Tom on behalf of all his Italian fans!
For fans like me living abroad it's really disheartening to know of such events so little in advance. I live in Italy, as it's difficult for me to leave home on a working day, let alone booking cheap flights and B&B in order to get there in time without spending my last penny!
And I can only imagine how much more difficult it is for someone who lives in the US or farther!
I can fully understand Tom's fears (as he stated in the Question Room): "just the thought of flying anywhere from any airport fills me with dread. Travel is now a nightmare", so I know Tom will never come to Italy anymore.
But for this reason
I wish we could have a bit more time to arrange trips and come to UK to meet Tom!
So, guys... enjoy! Enjoy Tom's presence even for us, unlucky fans who cannot be there!
Here here to Tom, always!
