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 working as a substitute teacher (which was actually great for blogging, as I wrote one a day during my preps) and then scored a temporary position as a full-time temporary math and accounting teacher.  I’ve gotta say… I really enjoyed being back in the classroom, but it definitely cut into my free time!

Mike was busy baking and doing…. well, even I’m not quite sure what Mike was busy doing.  But that’s not the point.  We got busy.  Between work, reacquainting ourselves with family and friends, learning to bake the most amazing bread, and a little bit of play the blog’s been suffering.  And it may just continue to do so all summer long.

You see… we’ve left our good old family, friends, and home province of Saskatchewan behind to explore a little more of our own country.  We figure we’ve travelled to 21 countries besides our own now, so it’s about time we saw some of our home soil.  We loaded up our car, borrowed my mom’s GPS and CAA maps, and set out for the east coast of Canada.  That’s pretty much the entire plan… EAST.  The only concrete detail is Sappyfest in Sackville, New Brunswick in August.

We will, of course, blog about our adventures… but it’s going to take some time.  Like sometime in September kinda time.  If that’s not current enough for you, check out our Facebook page… we are using our newly acquired data plan (we really are back in a first-world country, aren’t we?) to post photos and updates as we cross the country.  We’ll keep trying to get the rest of the RTW posts up (so check in every now and then) but first and foremost we’re going to enjoy every minute of our two month cross-Canada expedition.  It’s also kind of hard to blog from a National Park campground.  But we’ll do what we can.

Enjoy your summer, because we’re definitely going to enjoy ours!

  1. I am a Canadian primary school teacher – although have never taught in Canada, and don’t plan on dealing with the paperwork in order to teach while here – although subbing would be the dream at the moment. While out in Nova Scotia, give me a shout!

      We’re getting close to NS. We just pulled into Montreal today. Our best guess puts us in Nova Scotia around the second week of August. It’d be swell to meet-up and talk to you about your experiences teaching outside of Canada.

    Hi Mike and Ashley, I found your Bulgarian blog dated 2013 recently, very nicely written. I was wondering if you managed to get back to your Bulgarian house yet? I am planning to move permenantly from Turkey (where I have been resident for 30 years) to Bulgaria. I am interested to know how you are doing. Catherine

      We have not made it back yet… We spent the past 3 years volunteering in Bhutan and recently returned back to Canada for the birth of our first child. Our house will have to wait a little while longer.
