Discover

I like the discovery part of it… I like to explore new things, new places, new views, new people, new everything. There are many ways to explore new things, but traveling is the most satisfactory as it is the most comprehensive way as it encompasses many elements from views to people to foods etc. I

 

The World Is My Playground

The World is a Playground

I love to travel because it allows me to learn and to love other cultures, marvel at beautiful landscapes, and value what I have. Travel opens your eyes to ways of life you would never know.

 

A Stranger In a Strange Place

Foreign Lands

The lands of the earth belong to us all. It is only when you go there and see the different ways in which people live that you may be ‘foreign’. Feeling like a stranger is just a feeling you get when you’re somewhere new.

 

Learning Spanish

Fluent

I was born and raised in Canada’s only official bi-lingual province, as children we had French classes from K-10. I’m not fluent in French but I can get by.

French and Spanish are both Latin based languages so one would think I’d have an easier time learning Spanish. But no. I find myself confusing the two languages. So I end up speaking a mashup of broken English, French and Spanish. So confusing.

It will come in time, the more I use Spanish and the less I think in French.

 

 

Travel Changes You

Adventure

I’m well aware that everything won’t be a fairy tale. There will be challenges, but also rewards. It’s something that if I don’t do it, I will always regret it.

 

The Great Adventure

This blog started out as Love Letters Across the Miles. After a rough few years we are ready to put the past behind us. That chapter is closed and I turn the page in my life’s book, ready to begin a new chapter.

This blog will now become The Great Adventure.

My husband and I decided to quit our jobs, rent out our house and move to Mexico for a year. My husband, myself and 2 cats are leaving in less than two weeks. After the year is up we may decide to stay in Mexico or travel on to another destination. I have decided to write about my journey and my new life adventure.

I have given most of my clothes to my local homeless shelter, sold or junked most of my possessions, except for a few totes of important things that I have put into storage, and sold 2 out of 3 vehicles. Travel documents are purchased, house is almost empty except for furnishings (I am renting the house furnished). I am excited.

 

 

Happy Valentine’s Day

So glad you remembered this year. The strawberries were delicious and the flowers were beautiful.
