Having to face another winter

Winter here in Quebec can be brutally cold and humid.  We hosted an Norwegian girl for a year a few years ago and even she thought that winter here was incredible!  And she lives in Tromso, which is near the Arctic Circle in Norway...

Kim and Brian, from Oregon, are in the process of preparing for their RTW trip and I asked Kim a few questions about all this prep and what it involves.


You know you're leaving in less than a year when...

Less than a year to organize everything and you know you are leaving in less than a year when...


The world according to Lulu

Finally!  After months of waiting, my owners let me use the computer for the continuation of my adventures.  I admit however that after the big announcement of our departure on the road planned for 2012 - less than a year - I needed to digest the news...

Here I am, very quiet trying to gobble the flies, when I surprised them  discussing about travel, motor home, but also words such as vet, chip, ... To provide chills and thrills!
