By the Way – Happy Canada Day!

July 1st is Canada Day. Happy Canada Day!!

This is my first time in the country for the holiday ever. My wife’s first time in many years. We’re spending the day with my wife’s family and many more in a small rural village in northern Nova Scotia. Local events include dancing, concerts of local talent, mini-highland games, helicopter rides, and a parade. A little something for everyone hopefully.

Vacation is over as of this week. Reality is replacing the holiday feeling, bigtime. Culture shock is working its magic. 🙂 To be more correct, this is reverse culture shock, since, at least for my wife, she’s returning “home.”

Hope all is well with you, wherever you are.

An American who likes to move around. I now live on the eastern Canadian seaboard. My job? A stay-at-home dad for two cute but demanding bosses. My wife? Also cute; not so demanding. My wife and I both love travel. We met in South Korea, travelled across Australia, India, Europe and beyond. We lived in Czech Republic for four years. Many stories to tell and experience to share. If you let me, I will help you travel as we do. Enjoy.
