Using Local Currency as a Time Capsule
On our last big trip through Mexico and Central America, every time we left a country, I glued an envelope into my journal and put a local note in there. I wrote what it was worth at the time and any little notes about it that came to mind about the local currency.
Montréal vs. Toronto
Another summer is heading to the hills… That means that winter is coming to Montreal and many of my friends in England, Australia and anywhere else where the sun will keep shining past five in the evening wonder why I am still here. Why put up with the cold, the ice you don’t always see until it is under your back, the loss of mobility and the unending snow?

Florida vs California. What I miss and what I don't.
I've lived in Florida for nearly twenty years, and it was starting to feel like I'd never leave. However, that changed earlier this year, and I now find myself on the opposite coast of the USA. Are there some things that I miss in Florida? Sure. However, there are plenty of things that I don't, and IMO, good riddance!

Highway to the Stars
Now, I’m not going to do this experience justice. I’m not going to be able to describe the feelings and visuals, but I’m hoping it’ll be enough to maybe connect or convince someone enough to seek this sight for themselves.
Cheyenne, Wyoming Highlight - Terry Bison Ranch
If you are driving through Wyoming, Terry Bison Ranch is a must do. Visitor are allowed to roam the ranch and enjoy the environment at their own pace. The best way to share this experience is through pictures so that is what I will do accompanied by short commentaries. We stayed in the RV park and there is no addition fee to explore the area unless you wish to partake in the bison tour.
