I developed a love for venturing away from home at an early age. The trips we took when I was young were nowhere exotic, but they opened my eyes to the possibility of adventure anywhere. After years of exploring the world, I had a beautiful boy. We stayed closer to home while he was young, flying to England a few times, but mostly exploring Canada and the U.S, and developing a love for the beauty of the west coast. My boy is grown now, and I am able to adventure again! Watch me colour that map in!
