We've discovered that we really don't like travelling heavy. Checking bags is a huge hassle and waiting to collect them at the other end is even more so. I guess you have to make allowances when you're taking creature comforts to carry you over a year or more of travelling.
We awoke to a beautiful sunny Vancouver day. (In truth, the sun was barely breaking the horizon when we woke up, but we're just starting to adjust to the time change.) Once the sale of the house is complete and we have cash in hand, we'll be ready to turn our faces forward and enjoy this new stage of our life. Sorry there aren't any parting photos but at least I've managed to get in an update after the mania of closing up yet another house. Updates to come!
Like a song from the 90's says "Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end."
