Dec 21, 2017 - Settling in

It has just hit Day 5 of my trip, still extremely jet lagged... those 3am wake ups are becoming scarily normal!

I'm glad I don't have to do that for another 6 months! - Toronto is beautiful.

May 16, 2015 - Ontario Visit

Kelby and I specifically booked our flights to Canada to be home for the long weekend in February. Little did we know we would be departing +30 degree weather in Africa to arrive to -30 degree weather in Canada. Undeterred, we made the most of the harsh winter conditions and enjoyed our time visiting with family and friends. It wasn't long until the spring arrived and I was able to show Kelby how growing up in Ontario is full of fun and beauty.
