I can't believe that it is less than a month and we will be on our way to Morocco. Only a few weeks left of classes and then final exams and off we go. We have looked at a few choices for activities while we have our layover in Frankfurt. There is a walking tour, a tram tour and just shopping. This break will be welcomed after our overnight flight from Calgary. I think we will sleep on the plane from Frankfurt to Casablanca. We are all getting anxious and excited and there has been many long dresses and skirts bought by the girls. Even Steve has a new outfit!!! That's it for now. More to come in the next week. Countdown has begun.... read more

Well.... guess this is what its come to. I've never imagined the day that I would write a "blog" which I'm not i'm still not getting what it means. I have to be wary of this slippery slope... God forbid I do a "tweet" on a thing called twitter... and we're now at the point where Facebook may have overstayed its welcome and is waiting to be extinct by a newer form of social media. Undoubtedly something bigger, faster, stronger.... or something with more smiley faces and twinkle graphics. In 3 weeks, I will be be taking off for a new journey for 2014. Those who know me, this isn't anything that unusual for me. I've travelled a lot... and seen a lot. "Those who know, do not have to see... but one must see, ... read more

I applaud my friend Seamus for moving out to Calgary from Brantford for a year to work and earn money before school. Living in a major city far from family and friends can be quite scary! Nane dropped me off at Seamus' work around 8 o'clock because we had plans to go out and do something to celebrate Halloween which was the night before. Once he was off his shift we bused over to his little apartment which was quite nice, and bundled up to go to Screamfest held at the Calgary stampede grounds. Screamfest is a combination of haunted houses, ghoulish games, and other scary activities. We went in all 6 haunted houses which were actually quite well done (one was completely pitch black so I forced Seamus to go first and navigate our way ... read more

I said a big fair well to Petra Chris and Preeti in Edmonton and boarded the greyhound bus to Calgary! It was snowing which was simultaneously beautiful and annoying. The trip was quite enjoyable and I had time to reevaluate my journey so far. Nane was waiting at the station for me and we loaded my heavy suitcase and backpack into her little car and headed to the north west end of Calgary! Nane's home reminds me a lot of her sisters, (my Oma's) house and had a German feel to it! Nane owns and rents out 7 other units in her building and since she is a flood victim since this past June, there was lots to do! Throughout the week and a half I stayed there I helped clear out the crawl space and ... read more

Since it is now fall I thought a pumpkin would be a perfect little decoration! I love fall, the beautiful colours, the pumpkin carving, pumpkin pie, thanksgiving, Halloween. Time to bring out the ugly sweaters! Preet picked me up and we waited for her friends Rae and Jelysza at her house! Off we go to Calgary driving in Jelysza's packed car listening to drakes new album! It was a 2.5 hour drive, and by the time we got to Calgary it was already dark! We got to our hotel that was kind of sketchy and got ready and went out to a club called "Black Betty". Preets friends are just as fun as she is and I had a blast that night! I had my first encounter with a ghost the first night we stayed in ... read more

Beautiful sunny day here in Calgary - cool in the morning but reached a maximum of 25 degrees C. Just perfect. We were straight out of the Casino carpark before 7.30am. We were off to visit the Heritage Park historical museum and Gasoline Alley this morning so we dove there, parked at the marina - had breakfast and did a tidy up of the RV before going over to the park. When we went to purchase our admission tickets we were advised that the park was closed on week days now that it was fall and only open weekends. A kind volunteer felt sorry for us and let us in to explore the place. It was great as we had the place to ourselves. We checked out the historical village and it's surrounds. We couldn't go ... read more
