Range of emotions while we are down to the wire


Currently feeling quite a range of emotions these last few days. Pretty much you name I probably feel it. Excitement for our adventure ahead, Exhilarated and non-stressed from not working anymore, Sad when I look at my cats and when my friends/family say they are going to miss me, Overwhelmed with making sure everything we need to do before […]

Kiss me baby, we’re going to Ireland!

Scott and I thought some luck might be a handy thing to have on our trip… so we have made our first destination: Dublin, Ireland! We shall try and find some four leaf clovers and hopefully catch a leprechaun! We could sure use his pot of gold!   Our tickets are booked, seats reserved and […]

These diaseases include: Malaria, Dengue Fever, Yellow Fever, Encephalitis, and West Nile. The last thing we want to experience on our trip is a nasty disease like those! Precautions must be made to […]

No Fun Conclusion… okay maybe there was a bit of fun…


Our 4 day “no fun” long weekend has come and gone… however soon enough we will be living a long weekend for an entire year. As you saw from our last post we had a long list of things to do… we got some things done but not nearly as much as on that list. […]

No Fun May Long Weekend

no fun allowed

Originally we planned to go out to Nelson this weekend to help our friends start to setup the Village stage at Shambhala, a music festival we go to each year. Unfortunately we have so much to do and so little time so we’ve decided that we’re going to stay in Vancouver and get stuff done. […]
