What a day… oh by the way… one day!!!!

Well my day was CRAZY AWESOME! How was yours?! Today was the 5k run for Start2Finish (www.start2finish.org), which is the big, final event for the year for all the clubs who has been doing the reading and running program in their schools! It was amazing. We couldn’t have asked for better weather, things went really smoothly…




2 days

It’s the final countdown!!!!

[ujicountdown id=”Default” expire=”2014/06/01 22:30″ hide = “true”] Yes my friends, it is the final countdown, and we are juuuuuust about ready to go! Now by me saying ready to go I don’t mean to imply that I’m packed or anything of that nature – no no no, not quite. I did get a haircut, and…




3 days

Yikes! T-3 days!

So do you know what T- means in the whole T-3, etc kind of thing? Time minus X! I know! How simple. And in this case, T-3 days until takeoff! 3 days from now I will already be in the air on my way to Rome. I’m actually quite looking forward to the flight –…

Ready thrusters… standby….

Yikes! I missed a day! 🙁 I was thinking about it last night but just totally forgot… yesterday wound up being a bit busy, I didn’t make it into the office because I had a FedEx delivery coming in, so I was working from home in some pretty intense heat (blah). On the plus side,…




6 days

How many days again…? Oh right! 6!

Home stretch! In a little under a week now I will be landing in Rome (7am EDT today), whee! You may be wondering if I managed to decide what to do with my little three day jaunt in between Switzerland and Morocco. If you know me well, you may assume that I have successfully procrastinated that…

This is it… one week!

You can tell it’s getting serious because I actually went out and did some shopping today. For those that know me well, this means something. Now – let’s talk hotels! I found a fantastic Hotel (or Riad) in Marrakech (Les Borjs de la Kasbah) that normally goes for about $100 a night, dropped down to…




8 days

Happy Weekend! 8 days left!

And we’re back! Daily blogging – check! 8 days left – check! Funny picture of me holding up a sign saying 8 days left – check! I’d say I’m doing pretty well so far. Pretty relaxed weekend, my one thing to make sure I do this weekend is grab some new shoes before I disembark,…




9 days 2

T-9 Days until take off

[ujicountdown id=”Default” expire=”2014/06/01 22:25″ hide = “true”] Alright this daily blog post thing is going well! We’ll see how it goes while I’m lying on the beach in Elba, but hey… The countdown is into single digits now (day wise anyway) with 9 days until take off, and I’m actually getting excited to be in…

10 days left… what else is new?

Currently sitting at Platform 302 in Hamilton, which is where I rent a hotdesk, waiting for some code to magically come to life, so I thought I would try to continue this daily blog trend. If I get into the habit now, daily on the trip should be no problem-o! So nothing new on the…

T-11 Days

Well I went out and bought my tiny tube of toothpaste, body wash and shampoo, so it must be getting close – right?! It’s all coming back to me… it has been 3 months since I’ve been on a plane, and 6 months since I’ve been off the continent, I’m getting stir crazy over here! I…
