  • Is this really the end?

    jonathan // May 30, 2009 // 5 Comment(s)

    Yes‚ we’re home. And that, ladies and gentlemen, was around the world in 365 days.

    We wandered around the desert metropolis of Dubai and played in what could be the world’s best water park; we saw the ancient ruins of Petra, spent a night in the desert, rode camels, shared a sheesha with a rescue […]


  • Space, the final frontier

    We spent the last week of our trip in sweet, sweet civilization with my brother and his family at their home in Orlando, Florida, USA.

    And yes, one of the first things I did was have a Starbucks coffee. I know, I’ve sold out to our North American culture… our delicious, coffee-driven culture, but if […]

    Last time we left you we had just crossed the border into Brazil at Foz do Iguaçu to take in a second helping of the gorgeous Iguazu Falls. That night, we hopped on an overnight bus that would take us to the massive city of Sao Paulo—a semi-cama bus (think airplane-style reclining seats), with no […]

    Well, we are back in Canada! Can you believe that a year went by so fast? I certainly can’t. Over the next week or two we are going to have a series of posts with lots of statistics about our trip – including the $64,000 question. This post is the third of three posts about […]

    As a preamble to this post, I’ll have you all know that I wanted to write another joint post – since the last one was so well received. When I mentioned this to Jon, he said “No problem. I love wine, I love beef, and thusly I love Argentina. End post.” And I’m pretty sure […]

Where We’re Going Next!

In September and October 2011 we've got several weekend / long-weekend trips planned to Canmore, Alberta (for a wedding), Ottawa (to visit family), New York (to visit family), and Fredericton and PEI (to a) visit family, and b) visit PEI).

In December, we are going to spend the holidays in Edmonton and at the Cabin with Allison's family. Hopefully we'll get in some skiing in Jasper or Banff! We will also spend a few days in La Quinta in early January!

While this is all very exciting, we are most excited about our next big trip. Both of us will turn 30 in 2012, so to celebrate we are going to go to Antarctica! That's right friends, we'll have both gone to all seven continents before our 30th birthdays!
