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…



Skydive Self

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…



Prague Self

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…



exhausted in Amsterdam

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…



hello_dutch

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…
