My Mexican Experience

By on February 24, 2018

Right from the start, I have been warned about travelling in Mexico, particularly because I am travelling alone. It isn’t my desire to be foolhardy and bull-headed, but it is my experience that anywhere in the world is as dangerous if you don’t take certain precautions. The same terrible things that happen in Mexico happen […]

¡Yo no hablo español!

By on February 18, 2018

Mexico! The very word conjures up exuberant, joyful people, mariachi bands, hot tamales and colours, lots of colours everywhere. I have not been disappointed.

Grassi Lakes

By on July 23, 2017

I had a wonderful day at Grassi Lakes. This was a favourite family hike when my husband was alive and the children were young enough either to have time or not object to hanging out with mum and dad! I still enjoy it. I love the drive out from Calgary. I like to take Highway […]

Transitioning……

By on July 11, 2017

As much as it sounds fantastic to up and quit your job, sell your house and head off into the wild, blue yonder, it can be a little unnerving. I discovered that, when I no longer needed to go to work and began to put my plan into action, I felt as if I had […]
