Travel back Thursday – Calm

On weekends when Shawn is working, I like to go for a nice, relaxing 50-75km ride on the Sunday morning.  The great thing about Calgary is that there are hills.  And, although I am not an especially fast cyclist to being with, I am dreadfully slow going up hills.  Once I get over the fact...

My mom and I love to travel together.  It hasn’t always been easy, however, as our travel budgets are not at all the same.  I like to spend about $10 to sleep for the night and not much more than that to eat for the day.  However, mom likes to stay in nice hotels.  She’s... Continue Reading →

Weekend Review

I had a busy and great weekend.  I can’t quite believe the weird weather we had on Saturday morning, but that was nothing compared to what I encountered on my drive South on Highway 22.  It was raining for a bit, which turned to slush, which turned into a blizzard, before it turned back to...

Travel Back Thursday

A few years ago when I visited my parents in Surprise, Arizona, we drove up to visit Page to do a couple of tours to see the Antelope Canyons.  I had a new camera, so it was really fun to take pictures of all of the beautiful rocks.  It is amazing to think about the... Continue Reading →

Weekend Review

I am not even sure where the past weekend went.  I am normally so bored by the time Sunday night rolls around that I am itching to be back at work on Monday.  However, even though I am happy that it is Monday, I am not really sure where the weekend went! I pick up... Continue Reading →

The Colosseum is definitely an amazing attraction.  I think I was actually more impressed by the Coliseum than by the Eiffel Tower.  I found the stories behind the Coliseum of the “sport” and the culture of the gladiators mind boggling.  It is amazing to think that the things that we watch for fun on TV,...

Weekend Review

It was such a beautiful weekend.  I don’t remember a more beautiful March – ever.  I do remember that when I was in grade 6 it snowed about a meter overnight of March 17th and it closed all of the schools.  It was my only snow day I have ever had! On Friday and on... Continue Reading →

Travel Back Thursday

This is David.  The original and one of the many replicas are located in Florence, Italy.  After many years of artists abandoning work on the sculpture, Michelangelo finished the statue after two years of working on it.  I can’t even imagine carving marble. What was really funny was that we saw this statue (a replica... Continue Reading →

Weekend Review

I had a great weekend!  Despite it being daylight savings time, I felt like I had a tonne of sleep and I definitely finished everything I needed to do. On Friday afternoon, I put my bike on my trainer in the front driveway and cycled for a good hour while reading my book in the... Continue Reading →

Travel Back Thursday

On our second day in Kenya, we visited the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage where baby elephants are rescued, rehabilitated and released back into the wild. It was so cute to see all of the baby elephants. We visited the Giraffe Centre near the Blixon Manor where the movie “Out of Africa” was filmed – based... Continue Reading →
