I love this photo.
It pretty much sums up this year for LJ: new friends, the beach and soccer.
Recently, the kid had her last soccer experience of our world trip. She attended a camp with the Valley District Soccer Association. We've spent the last month with my parents in rural Nova Scotia. There aren't many kids around so the camp not only let her play her favourite sport, but also provided some much-needed kid time.
If you’ve followed our stories, you’ll know that soccer ended up playing a big part in our year-long, around the world adventure.
Okay, how about I answer some big, sort of awkward questions about our one-year trip around the world...
Many people have asked these questions and I’m sure there are a few more who’ve been wondering but feel weird about asking.
First, no, we didn't get major diarrhea.
Second, yes, we did get head lice.
Third, let's talk money.
I'm writing this from my parent's house in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Twenty countries, four continents and countless memories later, our world adventure has come to an end.
One year ago, we left Canada from Nova Scotia and now we’re back, having travelled around the world.
L is back in Ottawa getting ready to return to work and LJ and I are here, taking it easy. We'll head home at the end of the month when we get our house back. I think we're both happy to have a bit of a slower pace, more of a routine and time to ease back into "normal" life. I'm getting some work done; LJ is finishing up some schoolwork, hanging out and going to soccer camp; and we're both fitting in some fun with Grandma and Grandpa.
