This is how you're going to reach out and get a hold of me unless you already know me, in which case... why are you here, just pick up the phone.

Ottawa, Ontario

Just a little corner of the interwebz where I occasionally jot down a thought or two. Why do I do it? Partly to communicate in some way with you, the reader, and partly because it's some sad way of leaving a legacy of some kind I guess.

It's fair to say that I've been to a lot of places and seen a lot of things; six continents, dozens of countries, and hundreds of cultural experiences. They say that the last places you ever really explore are the places you live, be it your city, your province (or state), or your country. This week I get to check off another province from my list and thus complete my tour of the Canadian provinces which leaves me with just two of the territories left: the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

Enough about the future though, this week I am in Newfoundland near St. Johns and while it's only been a few days it's been really picturesque and all around lovely. Earlier in the week I made it out to Quidi Vidi with my sister for brunch at Mallard Cottage where we split (family style) rhubarb French toast and a pork eggs benny before taking a walk around the area.

We also took a day and wend out to Cape Spear which is the eastern-most point of North America excluding the Danish-controlled Greenland. It's a pretty cool location as you can see from the first photograph in this post which depicts my niece and I on one of the boardwalks there.

Throughout the week I'm planning on trying to make it out to a few other places that have been left on a must-see list for me before heading back to Ottawa.
