Here we go

I'm just trying this out for the first time. This will be our blog to share our journey from July 2008 to July 2009. Our objectives for the trip are primarily to spend time with our childern, to experience and learn about new cultures and to appreciate the many gifts we have been given.

By way of introduction we are family of four from Oshawa, Ontario. Pam and John are about 40, Simon and Danielle are less than 40. We are excited about the adventure that lies before us.


  1. Hi John, did you hear the race-formerly-known-as the Paris Dakar rally is cancelled this year? The guys who were planning to cycle or ultra-marathon it are unhappy.

  2. What a wild Journey!!!!! Thanks so much for letting me share it. I should have been sleeping hours ago, but I simply could not! I'm so curious...How did the children react when you first told them? Were there many moments when you all just wanted to be home? Are there any regrets? Did you find it hard to adapt back to "sedentary life"? Laurie (Jakob's mom) from MYC
