Well, although all that is left of Mark and I's trip to the "land of smiles" are pictures, soveniers and a pile of memories - FEAR NOT! As Mark and I will be returning ASAP. To tell you the truth, the only thing that is getting me through school right now, is knowing the fact that I will be out of this country in less that 215 days. Yeah... that's a long time, but it's a light at the end of the long, dark tunnel called "University". I am presently looking in to some volunteering projects in Thailand. I would like to spend a month teaching English and then travel though Thailand for a month, and then over to Vietnam and Laos. All depends on funds though. As for Mark - I am sure he will ... read more

Well in the last 8 days I we have traveled almost 3000km through landscape ranging from tropical forests to desert wineries to glacier fields and back again. We got a hire car and then tented along the way. Was a bit wiered being on the wrong side of the road! Highlights were: The Rock Mountains and the engineering needed to create a road through them. The wildlife including wolves, moose, deer and birds (eagles, osprey, quails and ducks) but unfortunately no bears despite Jason’s reassurance that we would soon see one… The fried halibut and chips at a shop claiming to have “the best chips in the world” - apparently that means their allowed to charge $10 for one piece of fish and a few bits of potato. Having my $100 note held up to the ... read more

So there's only 27 days left until Raylene and I get to enjoy 2 long months of amazing weather, mind-blowing scenery and an entirely new culture (not to mention all-night beach parties and elephant rides!). The excitement and anticipation makes studying for exams a feat in itself, but the sooner we get that over and done with, the sooner we can take off and let the experience of a lifetime begin... As things come together and we get a little closer to the trip, we'll try and make some updates with more pictures and information about the trip. Expect loads of pictures once we get to the Land of Smiles, and don't worry - uncontrollable jealously is perfectly normal. :P... read more

I know that my one desire in this world is to be able to travel. I can't settle down this year to university or college or a 9 - 5 job. But now I'm wondering if I should do some schooling first, before I head off into the great unknown of Asia, Europe, Africa, and Australasia. I have no idea what to do... I don't want to lose my zest for travelling, and I don't want to settle down. I've been asking questions. And getting answers. None have completely satisfied me. All I know is I would be severely disappointed in myself if I held back my dreams because of everyone else's advice.... read more

Suffering a bit of jetlag but it is good to be home safe and sound. Over all it was a good trip. Sorry we did not keep up the blog, hard to find computers at times. Then other times when there was a computer we had no time. We were on the plane from London to Calgary for 9 hours. But it was a very nice flight. Lots of food and drink {juice and water}. Watched most of Shrek 2. Was dosing a bit before I realized it was on. Garrick was at the airport to pick me up even though I suggested he not come at that traffic rush hour time. Joyce's daughter Jodi came shortly after. She had Trina and Talitha with her. Will be glad to get over the jetlag and get back ... read more
