Just One Week

I leave in the morning for the last week-long course I need to do for this degree. I am so glad for that. I’m glad I get to go to Manitoba to do it. And I’m glad that it’s worked out to see a pile of different friends over the course of the eight days […]

A Day in Lyme-Regis (a random England post)

I feel like I chose the most obscure place in England for the final and fourth leg of our journey — Lyme Regis. Unless you’ve read Persuasion or The French Lieutenant’s Woman, you likely have never heard of it. But I had high hopes for the place, we wanted to go to the sea, and […]

Thanksgiving Weekend 2010

This past weekend we just happened to luck out and get a great deal on a cabin in a provincial park not far from where we live. I have not done much nature exploring in Manitoba and was pleasantly surprised that the area we went to didn’t look exactly the same as northern Saskatchewan. (You […]

Traveling Moments

Well, we’ve been home from England for exactly one month now, and I’m pretty sure that half of you think we didn’t even go. Of the whole ten pictures we’ve put up of our trip, we could have just superimposed our faces on pictures from the internet and not gone at all… We really did […]

Sights, Smells, and Places to Rest our Heads

Yesterday morning I woke up from a dream in which Marc and I were at one of the B&Bs from our trip. We were eating, like we did on our trip, our full English breakfast (consisting of egg, sausage, bacon, baked beans, sauteed mushrooms, toast, and cooked tomato — that’s toMAHto, not toMAYto, of course). […]

The Steps of St. Paul’s

The first full day we had in England we took one of those double decker bus tours of London, where you can get on and off the bus at any point that interests you. The first place we got off the bus was St. Paul’s cathedral. I wanted to see it, but it wasn’t until […]

Home Again

We really did make it to England and back. Sometimes I still can’t believe it. The trip went off without a hitch (after the thunderstorm in Denver that made us miss our connecting flight to London, of course). Actually, the trip went better than I ever could’ve imagined! It was, by all accounts, perfect. Not […]

Off We Go

Tomorrow at this time we’ll be nearing the east coast of the United States, making our way towards the Atlantic Ocean and at 1pm London time (which I think is about 5 or 6am Saskatchewan time), we’ll be landing at Heathrow. Off we go, indeed. I wonder if it’s going to hit me that I’m […]

The Enchanted Forest

The day we stated the drive home we took the kids to the Enchanted Forest. We were going stop there on the way to BC, but it started pouring rain as soon as we pulled into the parking lot. We definitely made the right choice going on a beautiful, sunny day. All of the kids were at […]

4,000 km later…

We’re home. We got in last night at around 11:30pm (after 3 days of driving 2,000km through 4 provinces).  Marc’s old treeplanting buddy who lives in Ireland is in Winnipeg until Tuesday. So that meant that Marc set the alarm for 7am this morning to meet up with his friend for breakfast at 8am. (He […]
