Home again, home again, jiggety jig;

I’m home, safe and sound.  The trip from Hong Kong was great – Cathay Pacific is fantastic.  Despite the great service and food, it was an excruciating 15 hour flight since I was so excited about getting home and seeing my girls. It’s been rough for me and amusing for everyone around me the last [...]


Family Road Trip!

April 29th, 2009 4 Comments

On the weekend of April 11th I arrived in Malang, where I am now.  Originally the plan had been to land in Jakarta and then travel by bus and train to Malang, while visiting Indonesia along the way: Bandung, Pekalongan, Borobodur, Surabaya and then Malang. However, because of the election – which is a national [...]


On My Own(ish)

This has been an amazing trip so far.  I’ve travelled with my father to his home town of Pekalongan,  explored his home county of Indonesia, met my Indonesian family and even started to learn to speak a little Indonesian.  And I’ve eaten amazing food every step of the way <grin>. Yesterday my dad flew back [...]


In Jakarta!

We arrived in Indonesia safe and sound – the trip was about as good as 24 hours of air travel can be <grin>. I’m crazy jet-lagged…but I do have some pictures already and hope to start posting details tomorrow.


Leaving Canada!

Up early and getting ready in the dark. Thanks to everyone for the wonderful good wishes and farewells. I’m headed off to Pearson International Airport shortly. I’ll try and update from the Hong Kong Airport. I’m so excited and a bit scared…and sad about being away from my family for a month.  It’s been a [...]


Taking a Trip to Get My Travel Visa

March 25th, 2009 Comments Off

I am back at work and back online after a week of convalescing after breaking a rib.  It is a sad tale, although not what one would call a hero’s journey.  It is the story of the Fall of Man…or at least a fall of a man.  Since people aren’t believing my “saving orphans and [...]


Flights Are Booked!

Thanks to the hard work of The Best Wife Evar, tickets for my trip to Indonesia are officially booked and confirmed!  I’m started to get really excited.  We have a short stopover in Hong Kong; not longer enough to leave the airport…so it doesn’t count.  But if I manage to find authentic HK yum cha [...]


Home Again…home again

I arrived in Canada on Sunday afternoon – it was so wonderful to see Jen & Gwen!  Unfortunately, I came down with a nasty flu.  I’m feeling much better today and should at a 100% again soon.  Then I can start catching up on more posts!


Back in Frankfurt

July 28th, 2007 Comments Off

We made it safely to Frankfurt – after a bit of a delay in Doha we finally got off the ground.  I’m about to go and freshen up – I’d pay real money for a shower right now. I had a chance to explore the Doha airport a bit - but no pictures for this leg of [...]


Namaste Kathmandu

July 28th, 2007 Comments Off

Well, I left Kathmandu this evening.  On may way to the airport I was treated to a beautiful sunset behind the hills that surround the valley. The flight was great and I’m at the Qatar International Airport now – so just a quick update to let you know the trip is going fine…and that they [...]
