I Sailed Around the World!
You can’t imagine how hard it is for me to say that. I sailed around the world. I did, I really did. Well, almost. We sailed from Vancouver, BC on the Pacific Ocean, to Sydney, Nova Scotia, on the Atlantic Ocean, the long way. So we sailed around the world, except for the width of Canada. If that makes sense.
I'm Giving Vocal a Try
Hello fellow Vocal writers! Newbie here. A few days ago I came across an article on Medium, where I have been writing for 3 months now, and learned about Vocal. The article had some good insights to the platform, so I decided to bring some articles over from Medium, just to see how they would do.
Don't Pack All of Your Valuables In One Bag
The first time that I was in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, back in 2004, my cousin came down to visit my then-husband and I for a couple of weeks. At that time, we had rented a house in Nicaragua and were whiling away the winter south of Canada for 4 months.
We Fled War in Nicaragua and Discovered Our Passion
It constantly amazes me in this life how when we look back, we can so clearly see connections that may not have been so obvious at the time. It isn’t until we are farther down the road that we can see how situations impacted us and consequently sent us in new directions.
The Cats of Istanbul
Istanbul really surprised us! We flew there from Morocco in October 2020, after nine months of being locked down due to Covid. We didn't research the city at all, other than knowing that it had 15 million people in it. We figured that we wouldn't like it based on that information, and would get in, stay for a couple of days, then get out again. However, after 4 days, we realized that we still didn't want to leave.
