We’re writing about Canada a bit ahead of schedule. We’re still trying to polish off our South East Asia posts, and we will be getting to them eventually. But… THIS JUST IN! Our friend, and one of our favourite Canadian artists – Pat LePoidevin – has released a new music video from his new album, American Fiction. Enjoy. We had the chance to visit with Pat (briefly, we’re getting too &#91read more]

OK, I’ll admit it.  We’ve been slacking.  Big time.  On the blog, I mean.  We’ve been home for 3 months now and we’re still finishing up posts about Cambodia and Thailand.  We’re lucky to get in one post a week!  But you know all that. Sorry to all our loyal fans out there (all five of you), but we’ve been busy.  As soon as we were settled in, I was &#91read more]

Surprise! We’re home!  Not in Bulgaria, silly… in Saskamoose-a-bush, Canada, the land of ice and snow. Okay, maybe you’ve already been surprised. Probably because we’ve already been home for three weeks as any astute Facebook follower would know. If you didn’t know, don’t feel bad. It just means we get to surprise you now. Surprise! How long are you home for? Ah, right to it. The first question everyone asks. We’re &#91read more]

We were wandering down the streets of Barcelona one day, when we came across an interesting deli. They specialized in international cuisine. Specifically, the shelves were divided up into sections by country or larger geographical region. Each section was filled with gourmet items (at least they had gourmet prices) that reflect the local cuisines of the regions. For example, the Greek shelves were lined with olives and olive oils.

This is a really old post that we never got around to publishing.  It is a journaled account of our two week canoe trip from Whitehorse, Yukon to Dawson City, Yukon.  At the end of each night, we would lay down in our tent and spend a few minutes re-hashing the days events.  It seemed fitting that we should finally get around to posting it while we ourselves our on &#91read more]

When Mike and I originally booked our flights to Cancun, we thought we would land, hop on a bus to Guatemala, and that would be it for Mexico.  Mexico was never really on our radar… it’s a good thing we decided to stay here a while, because we would have missed out on some great culture and history (not to mention the beaches).

As mentioned in my last post, Ashley and I have been spending a lot of time visiting Mayan Ruins and Museums. I wanted to write down some of the odds and ends that I’ve put together, partly so I don’t forget, and partly because I find it really interesting and don’t mind sharing. Before I get too far, here’s my disclaimer. Everything I’m writing here could be (and probably is) &#91read more]
