Vive le Quebec 3

It’s been one hell of a week. Saturday/Sunday/Monday I studied for exams. Tuesday and Wednesday evenings I wrote my exams after working all day, getting very little sleep. Thursday night we had our work Christmas party, and Friday I drove 8 hours after a full day of work with a modest hangover to come to ...

World Biosphere reserves

It’s good to know that there are sites in the world that are vital to the survival of the earth that are being preserved. There are 13 such reserves in Canada, 4 of which are within a few hours drive from where I live. While camping and hiking on the weekend I was awestruck by ...

Southern Cali trip 4

I just arrived in the beautiful city of San Diego, California. It has been quite a long haul the last couple days. I’m testing the threshold of the human body to see how much it can withstand. I worked 12 hours yesterday, then went home to do my laundry. After my laundry I went out ...

Visit to New Brunswick / Nova Scotia 4

I landed in Moncton, New Brunswick yesterday around dinner time for a brief 1 night business trip. Some things I noticed in my short time here: people drive really slow, it’s a lot more quiet, there are many hitchhikers on the highway, and I even saw a business man walking casually along the Trans Canada ...

Great outdoors 10

I returned home last evening from a weekend up north where the beautiful weather allowed me to escape from the city to a cottage and hike along Canada’s longest footpath, climb a 220 meter ski hill by foot and by Jeep, toboggan down the ski hill in a recycling box, cross a suspension bridge and ...

I’m a Hobo, so you know! 2

Over the weekend while visiting Wisconsin, I managed to capture a video of Milwaukee’s finest musical talent. I call it “I’m a Hobo, so you know!”. Click here for the video.

Weekend Trip to US 2

I’m currently visiting my father who lives near Appleton, Wisconsin. We drove to downtown Milwaukee yesterday to visit the city and watch an American Hockey League game. Below are some pictures I took along with some commentary. Wisconsin “Graffiti” – Looked like it says “BUSH – Proven lies” Federal government marketing Approaching Milwaukee Good to ...

Back in Toronto

I arrived back in Toronto around 3:30PM today. We were supposed to arrive last night at 10:30PM. We ended up spending the night in Chicago. We also had bad luck on the way to Puerto Rico as well; we sat at the Chicago airport for 13 hours due to airplane mechanical problems. So we only ...

Hola Puerto Rico! 3

I don’t want to waste too much time on the Internet, since the weather is absolutely gorgeous out here and I want to get back to the Ocean to body surf the waves, so I’m just going to post a few pictures of the trip thus far. Most of these pictures were taken yesterday. We ...

Gone to Puerto Rico 1

I’m leaving for Puerto Rico this morning, so you probably won’t hear much from me all next week.
