Wow, I didn't realize that it had been almost a year since my last blog entry...
A lot has been going on I guess, with a promotion at work and lots of other mundane stuff.
At the end of December 2009 I took my first international trip and went to Jamaica with a friend of mine. The trip was absolutely amazing and WAY outside my comfort zone, but that's a good thing!
Also, before winter last year I took a driver's education course so that I can get my license this year and get out of the city finally (without having to depend on the kindness of others).
I'm still playing volleyball once a week and having a ton of fun doing it! We're back on the 'beach' for spring and summer.
Hiking season has finally started and I went on my first one yesterday to the Plain of Six Glaciers in the Lake Louise area. It was a challenge as a first hike of the season, but it was worth it!
My plan is to start writing in this blog more often and tracking the journeys and adventures I take with my family and friends in our beautiful country. My son and I are planning some road trips for once I have my license, my friends and I (JAKT) are planning more hikes for this year and my sister and I hope to get out camping at least once this summer. I will also be going on another creative retreat next month.
My grandfather said more than once, "I will worry about seeing the rest of the world after I've seen the country I live in first." (Or something to that affect). This is now my goal, to travel Canada, learn its history and tell the stories along the way. I hope that if anyone stumbles across this blog and reads what I have to say that they will be somehow inspired to explore and see things for themselves...
I feel lucky to be the 5th generation of my family to call Canada home and I look forward to my adventures and learning what my ancestors went through to be here and about the proud history of a great and beautiful country.
