It’s Shawn here. If you haven’t noticed, the blog has been silent for almost a year… sorry about that. I was having too much fun scuba diving in Thailand, feasting on the cuisine in Vietnam, climbing the Great Wall (you know where), and enjoying the National Parks in my home country of Canada! I’ll give you a quick recap of the adventures in this past year.
My last post was from Rome nearly 1 year ago. Jon and I then flew to Thailand, and spent 4 months in Southeast Asia. From there we flew to Hong Kong and wandered around China for a month. I finished the first leg of my journey in Japan for a month.
From Tokyo, Jon and I took diverging paths. Jon continued travelling in Southeast Asia after Tokyo, and spent the summer in Prague. He ventured out to London and flew back to Canada this past September. We met up in our hometown and swapped tales of our many adventures.
I headed back to Canada in May, and based myself in the Okanagan Valley. I visited with family and friends, and made lots of fantastic camping trips to Canada’s and the USA’s National Parks! I then flew out to London, England on October 2. I will be in Europe for 2 months, and then Mexico/Central America for 2.5 months. My wanderings will then venture back to Canada and to my work on February 20, 2017. This is the pre-ordained return date in my contract! Yes, I got a 2 year leave of absence from work to go backpacking… some companies are this cool!
So, what does this mean for the blog? 2 things:
- I will begin posting about my new adventures in Europe, Mexico, and Central America
- Also, I will make postings about our travels in Asia, and my ventures in Canada/USA. I’ll label these postings so you don’t get confused between my past/present travel postings.
Good times await! Stay tuned for the many adventures! Cheers!
