travelling adventures …. part one

Alrighty then.  As I started to write this post I realised that condensing 6 weeks of awesomeness and approx. 1700 photos into one blog post was slightly ambitious – I had way too much fun everywhere I went to possibly be able to pick out the highlights.  But, I realise that looking at other people’s holiday snaps is probably one of the most boring things in the world, so I’ve tried to be pretty ruthless in my photo culling – although about halfway through I got tired so if this is ever going to be posted I think it will have to be done in two parts.  I also realised as I was going through my photos that I basically ate my way across Canada, so many photos seem to be of whatever I was eating.  I should care, but I just don’t.

in a minute #3

So.  Welcome to my life in a minute #3 – an idea that I shamelessly stole from Lizzie @ tablecloths and talking).  I’m going to try and do one of these each month, but whether or not I actually manage to do that remains to be seen…
