Yesterday we drove in from Sudbury to Mississauga and had about 10 min to get our butts to Kia Headquarters for 3pm. We dropped off our stuff at the hotel and zoomed away. Once we found it (thank you GPS girl) we saw that their big glass door was open for their showroom. We started honking the horn as we approached and we were overwhelmed by what we saw! Inside the showroom was a HUGE crowd of Kia employees ready to cheer us as we drove in! I pulled in...thankfully not hitting anyone lol and couldn't believe what we saw! Employees were clapping and cheering! I looked back at Lindsay and Jenn and all of our jaws were dropped!!! We didn't expect such a warm welcome! There was a photographer snapping pics of what I know ... read more

Hello friends and Family, So it turns out i am that "crazy travelling Registered Nurse" that my awesome friends keep referring to me as. I have just being offered a job working up in Whitehorse, Yukon for the month of May. I am going to be working at a 49 bed Hospital in Whitehorse for 4 weeks and hopefully enjoying every moment of it. Very excited for such a great experience working in a rural hospital and even more the ability to explore the Yukon! In case some of you guys don’t know where that is, it is indeed still in Canada!! It is in the far north-west corner close to Alaska. There are 33,000 people that live in the whole of Yukon and 24,000 of them reside in Whitehorse, the capital city (where I will ... read more

After much debate it was decided that we should make some sort of a website that everyone can see whether they have facebook or not. So, we'll do our best to update when we can, post pics, and try and keep people in the loop! Overview of our plan is this: Fiji - New Zealand - Austalia (Gold coast) - Egypt - Greece - Rest of Europe We'll likely be off the grid while we're in Fiji ... so look for an update in a few weeks! We love you all, and wish you were all with us. Keep safe, have fun, let us know how you're doing ... and we'll do the same! :-) Heres a map of the plan! Visited Countries Map ... read more

These posts are long overdue, however we would like to wrap up our travel blog with our engagment photos and photos from our wedding on August 22, 2009 so that we may then create a hardcover book containing all of our travel blog posts. This seems like a fitting end for our blog which began nearly three years ago when we first left on our adventurous journey to England in 2007. So, without further ado, here are our photos that we had taken a few weeks before our wedding. Photographer: Sandra Valente, Seize the Moment Photos.... read more

We spent Civic bank holiday here in Canada up in Killbear park about 2 hours north of Toronto. Bears. Black Bears. We wanted to up our 'Canadianisms' and ended up Canadian canoeing and bear hunting - see attached photos. It was early morning and as the sun began to burn away the mist a feeling of anticipation gripped the campsite. What was supposed to be an ordinary day was to turn into something quite extraordinary before long... ...Driving to the canoe hire place, we were suddenly blocked off by a rangers vehicle that screeched to a halt in front of us - the ranger emerged armed with a paintball shotgun and rolled off the track into the undergrowth. A black bear appeared in the woodland and began to scurry away. As the ranger pursued, I left ... read more

Day 63. 18,319Km Home again home again. I got up just after 1100hrs and wrote my entries for the last couple days. Dad still has dial-up so I had to wait till I got home to post them. Mom has always cooked a big meal for Sunday lunch and today was no different. She puts the roast in the oven before they leave for church so it is ready when they get home. I can smell it now as I am writing this. After lunch dad had to go play at a funeral so I chatted with mom for a bit and then took off. I called my friend Murray in Baden to see if he was home and stopped there for a visit. He was working on his front walkway so I grabbed a shovel ... read more
