Goodbye Prague, hello Poland!

Good evening one and all, today was my last day in Prague! It was a wonderful visit and I would happily return one day. Beautiful city full of wonderful people and lovely sights. Tons to see and do, would highly recommend a visit. Today I went on a tour of the Prague Castle and surrounding…



Finally jumped out of a moving plane!

Ahhhhhh finally! 3rd time was the charm! Arrived this morning at 10:15am and was pretty much immediately told that we were good to go today! I guess the wind or whatever was behaving itself. They had the bus all ready outside, so we just had to sign our life away on the various forms and…



I still haven’t jumped out of a moving plane. What??

Hello again. I did not write an entry yesterday, and I’m ok with that – it wasn’t an extremely interesting day. I was super psyched to go sky diving, and it didn’t happen – walked into the office at 1:15pm and was told that due to wind speeds or whatever it was off for the…



Day 2 in Prague

Hey hi from Prague again – on to day 2! For some reason I had a crappy sleep, no idea why – don’t think it was particularly noisy, but I kept waking up. Not a huge deal. Bed is actually pretty comfy, though I am on a top bunk which I dislike in general. Oh…



Ahoj from Prague

I’m writing twice today because I missed yesterday – it’s my penance. So ahoj from Prague! Today was a great day all around. I enjoyed most of my day in Amsterdam and spent about 3 1/2 hours of it on a free walking tour given by a guy named Dave who turned out to be…



Last day in Amsterdam, tonight – Prague!

First off, I can’t believe I forgot to blog yesterday! It was a bit busy, but I had some time in front of the computer, it just totally slipped my mind. Need to get into the habit! So yesterday was good – I slept in a bit, thankfully, rolled out around 10am. Back is sore…



Alive but exhausted!

Hello from Amsterdam! If I was really thinking clearly, I would have slept in a bit yesterday, but ce le vie! Flight was pretty good coming in, I was so hoping for my own row, or at least an empty seat beside me, but at the very last minute – seriously, like the last people…



As the dutch would say – Hoi!

Hallo, Hoi, Goedemiddag! Last day in Canada for a month, just practicing my “hello”. So I am off today at 6:30pm, picked a nice seat, got my boarding pass printed out, and I’ve got some comfy travel clothes ready to go! I’ll be landing in Amsterdam tomorrow morning around 7:30am local time and staying in…



T-1 Day

And I’m back. Trying to get back into the habit of blogging daily. It’s the final countdown – roughly 16 hours till take off. It’s an overnight flight which will be nice, I always enjoy when they can turn off the lights. Occasionally I nap a bit, but not often on flights. I’ve got myself…



One more month…

Well it’s been a while! I haven’t really been blogging (at all) since returning to Canada. I have made it out of the country a couple of times – one on a trip with my Mom to New York City (first time for me), and another with my brother for a week away aboard the…
