    • Hi there,
      Thanks so much for finding me! Sorry I don’t have much new stuff to show you, I’ve had a very busy semester this year at school, but I’m planning on starting up with a bunch of travel things from last summer and tons more photos really soon, so check back maybe half way through May for new things! Where are you from in Canada?

      • Awesome, I’ll be sure and check back then! I’m also planning to add pictures and talk about my past travel experiences (England and Germany so far!) on my blog. Where did you travel last summer? I’m mostly from Kelowna but part time Vernon a lot as well. 🙂

      • I spent last summer working in Normandy at the Juno Beach Centre as part of a university co-op. I travelled to eight countries while I was there, so quite a few photos to go through and upload! Ah, very nice to hear from someone in the Interior. I have a few friends from there and I have been to Kelowna a few times for the RUSH Youth Conference which happens in February/March each year. Great town!

  1. Ben, Thanks for following my blog and for trying the writing exercise contest. Please revisit the post. I inadvertantly repeated one of the words for the prompt.

    The list should read:
    remain trailer music family alarm

    I hope this doesn’t cause too mucb inconvenience.
