So far our decision to choose Kelowna for the next phase of life has left no regrets. The surroundings are spectacular and with a fall lasting far into November, we've had ample time to explore the new landscapes. As we settle in for our first winter in several years, we turn to the realities of life - homemaking, finding new community, and putting in some real...

The problem with Marathons is the training. What's the point of running if there is nothing to chase? I solved this problem by run-exploring which turned out to be a great way to check out the areas around our new place. Surprisingly, you can run a long way without overlapping. I did the best I could to try new places every run and after 322km worth of explor...

It's been a couple months since our exotic travels ended and we touched down in Canada. But the travels didn't end there and we were still living out of bags! We were kind of expecting to relax a bit after returning home but that was far from the case. After being gone for a few years, home didn't really exist anymore so we kept moving. We went from...

The Queen Mary 2 is legendary itself as well as the path from Southampton to New York (Titanic route). Since we were going that direction anyway, we had to try! We checked every day for last minute deals and finally booked a few weeks before departure. I wouldn't call us 'cruise people' but it was welcome relief after living like animals for three...

We asked some of our English friends where we could go off the tourist trail to enjoy a quintessential experience. Just a place where an old lady could tsk tsk and chase us away with a broom for persistent scrumping. Just to sit around and drink tea and eat crumpits and blood pudding. We ended up getting that and more - quaint neighborhoods, kids walking to sch...

Although Greece is considered a Balkan country it is hard to group it with the rest. Greece is legendary in the list of well known countries of the world. I couldn't believe how many aspects of Greece were familiar. For starters I could sound out all the words, remembering the alphabet from mathematics. We don't learn about the mythologies and gods of mo...

Meteora or 'suspended in the air' was something that grabbed our attention quickly. It is a very fitting title for the (Greek Orthodox) Monasteries that cling to the tops of rock pinnacles, some of which are only accessible through strenuous hiking or mountaineering. Unfortunately, many of the monasteries are plagued by tour buses but that didn't stop...

We were in Skopje for a whopping total of 18 hours (in transit from Kosovo to Greece) but loved every minute of it. Well, minus the two hours of waiting for our train which two attendants assured us said arrived at 5am, but actually arrived at 7. (Breakfast and entertaining two young children on the tracks ensued for two hours). It is a charming little city with ...
