    I like the new format, also.
    Thanks, yet again, for sharing people and places I never would have seen without you; and reminding me of the importance of every experience we have.

    Relax, and enjoy your summer in Vancouver!

    I appreciated your thoughts on living and dying as I have similar ones myself, and often. How very strange that a man died on your flight home.

    Thanks guys. Yes that flight home was indeed memorable. It has changed me, in a subtle way. I keep remembering to appreciate now. Life's so fleeting.

    All in all a very good trip. And already planning the next one.

    Japanfan see you on the 24 Are you going to actually skate too?

    You bet. I learned to skate at about 5 years old and even took figure skating for a bit (no sign of natural talent). I got myself a pair of skates a few years ago and wanted to start it up again, but forgot how to stop. Overedge will show me, so I should be good to go.

    A new blog post is ready. This time it's some musings from Mr alilou about travel, trust, and ageing. And some photos from me of the people of Bali.

    We are having a good time being back in Vancouver taking care of business, catching up with friends, and preparing for the next leg of our journey. It's all good.

    See you Sunday Japanfan - with skates on

    Good to hear that you are enjoying your time at "home" in Vancouver.

    Thank you for the additional photos from Bali.
    The one of the young man is spectacular.

    Did you mean the one with the rose behind his head? Thank you. It was impossible for me to crop that rose, yet my sister (who's a professional photographer) finds it distracting. I love it as is.
    Also the one of the two young men together. Also love the one of the 4 girls eating ice-cream and the one..........etc

    That's the one.
    The rose didn't distract me at all.

    Well I have finally gotten a new blog post done - about the stuff we need to take care of while we're here in Vancouver (hasn't it been said that both God, and the Devil, is in the details?), a little about our next trip, becoming nomads even more, and a day out at Granville Island (a little bit of "travelling" in Vancouver for those of you who don't live here).

    Thanks to kwanfan1818, who recorded it all for me, I am slowly making my way through watching Worlds. So enjoying it. It's wonderful to be watching what I could only read about at the time.

    Thank you. That was a fun day. My granddaughter is 12 so getting to an age where we can really have fun together and she loved having a "real" camera (my old one) to take pictures with. And I loved having my new camera though it's still a big learning curve.

    Yay! I finally got a new blog post done. It's been quite a while, but then we're not travelling at the moment so not so much exciting stuff to write about. However........... there's been some changes in our situation making us even more nomadic (when we leave Vancouver in Sept we won't be back, except briefly, for 2 years!) so some details about that.

    And more "travelling" in our home town for all you non-Vancouverites - we went to the Folk Festival one of Vancouver's major summer attractions - lots of pics of that, that I hope tell something of the story of what a fabulous event it is.

    Whatever happens, alliou, you have the skill and resources to deal with the challenges ahead.
    "Home" will always be with you, wherever you are - and that's a wonderful thing!

    You're so right skatesindreams - "home" is where we are, and we're more excited than anything else. It was just a shock when we first found out about the 30 day thing.
    We're currently house sitting for friends for 3 weeks in a lovely big house with a beautiful garden. Home is pretty sweet right now.

    And we've booked all our hotels for our 5 week stay in India coming up in November so lots of "homes" in the future awaiting us. And friends have offered us their casita in Mexico for next April/May. Homes all over the place!

    Thanks Buzz

    A new blog post is ready

    It's been such a long time since the last one that this thread had fallen off into the black hole of dead threads - page 10 or 11 I think. Took me a while to find it

    Spent the summer in Vancouver getting all our ducks in a row. Trouble is they kept waddling off in all directions. Finally got them all rounded up. Good thing too - we start travelling again in 6 days

    Hope all you northern hemisphere peeps had a fabulous summer (it was slow to get here in Vancouver but July/Aug/Sept have been beautiful).

    Hope the winter for all you southern hemisphere peeps was not too bad (Aussie Willy did it rain much in Melbourne )

    New post is mostly about the black hole of photoshop. Fun.
