I live on beautiful Vancouver Island, BC Canada. I have journaled all my trips in the past and am now enjoying accessing and using this Blog site. I have found it to be a great resource and a great place to store the journaling. I would love to add some of my older journals and pics and may start that one year when I'm not travelling. I love travel and reading and hearing where others are going and have been. I love to travel with my sisters, family and friends and we 4 sisters made it on a 35 day South America trip that we will never forget and will always cherish and will certainly be planning another. Now for this fall 2013 my sister and I made an unplanned choice to do a cruise from Seattle to Hawaii, Samoa, Fiji, New Caledonia, 3 stops in Australia, 7 in New Zealand ending with a couple of days in Auckland. It has been a whirlwind of research and planning which we really enjoy. As this area has been on the backburner for a number or years, we were originally researching for 2014 and 2015 but the one we really wanted, vanished, and then this awesome deal came along. Sometimes the last minute deals can be awesome. This time our other 2 sisters couldn't make it on short notice and so they have booked a trip from Chili to the South Pacific in December.
