Still Tickin’…

Things have been pretty quiet on the blog for the last couple of months.  This left more than a few people wondering where we are and what we’re up to.  Don’t worry.  We’re alive and ticking.  Things just got busier through August and September, including a bunch of visits to Europe from friends and family, and some time spent in all-consuming activities like mountain climbing.

We spent the summer exploring Western Europe, including Switzerland, France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, and the Netherlands.  A lot of this time was in the company of others who visited from Canada, or that we’ve met on our travels.  Making friends and experiencing new things with those I care about is always fulfilling.  Thank-you so much to those of you who joined in our adventure and/or invited us into your homes.

We arrived home safely and are staying with Diane’s brother (our home is still rented) while we catch up and prepare for our next adventure (more on this in future).  Despite the NHL (ice hockey) lockout, we still seem to have plenty to do.  We’re getting back in shape (a steady diet of bread, wine, and cheese can pack on the pounds), and plan on spending as much time as possible through the holiday season with family and friends.

I’ll be continuing to post on the blog.  I still have tales to tell about the last part of our journey.  I have a number of blog postings written but not yet published, and a few stories that just need to be shared.

    Hello Patrick and Diane,

    So glad to hear you’re both alive and ticking. I missed living vicariously through your wonderful posts; you kept us wanting more.

    I would love to see you both before you take off again on another journey. Susie Q
