We go and go and go. We work, and train, and grocery shop, and train, and try to keep in touch with everyone, and train. It’s a lot. It’s good, but it’s a lot.

I thought I would touch on … Continue reading The Skip Day

It was hot. That muggy kind of hot you can’t shake even in the shade of a tree. I was frustrated because I had to get off the main … Continue reading Polarizing tides of Solo Travel
Its 1130am on the last day of the year. I have spent much of the last month grinding it out at work and fighting off a bit of a cold. Classic way to end the year. As it is for most folks, I too, find myself in reflection of the last 12 months. It has been a fairly busy year. Full of some fantastic highlights. … Continue reading Rear View Mirror 2016
