For all of my life, I have day dreamed about new places, I crave adventure, and discovering.
When I was young I was dazzled in my mind by the stories of Vikings that made it to Canada.
The idea of going far…
After working for 15 years since finishing at Ryerson, the time had come to take some freedom back. I really wanted to do some extended traveling around the world.
Caroline and I came up with a plan. We decided that we would either take off to South America, or Europe, or both…for a grand adventure! We had enough savings to do it, so lets just go.
Then we came up with a better plan! Let’s build an online business to fund our traveling time!
And so, here we are doing just that. After more than a year of hard work, and sacrifice we learned the ins and outs of WordPress development, and we further honed our Internet marketing skills.Wow, did it take a lot of effort to pack away an apartment that astoundingly I had lived in for just over 7 years. Many many times I did Spring cleaning and got rid of crap, but it still piled up. It was an intense frenzy of deciding what to get rid of and what could be kept. Challenging too when you are working full time and preparing for a long term trip. In the end, we squeezed all our remaining belongings into our Mazda 3 hatchback (tight squeeze indeed), which is now stored in a secret location…thank you to the most wonderful kindest hostess in the world!
After packing up the apartment, we moved on to the easy part of packing for the trip. We opted for some sturdy carry-on rollie suitcases, and packed super light. Half my stuff is tech – cameras, recording device, laptop, cords.
So, we did it! Before we knew it we were seeing family off for a while, having a fun BBQ with our friends, and suddenly running for the YYZ.
