one week down!

Well I must say I’m enjoying farm life so far…I feel like I’m learning so much and I can’t wait to get to start going to weekly markets and meeting some of the other farm folk here in the Okanagan. I also have already started thinking about how I can apply these skills to future […]

ouch my muscles

Yup, farm work = hard work! Pros and cons of ze job so far: PROS: -30 second commute cannot be beat! (I am living in a guest suite adjacent to the farmhouse) -early to bed, early to rise makes one healthy, wealthy and wise (well I sure hope so) ->starting work at 7 and ending […]

I added about 1 […]

Despite those minor problems, I’m glad to be back in Toronto for a week before commencing my next adventure in Beautiful British Columbia, where the skies are sunny and the hippies are plentiful. [side note: Why is it that every time […]

Yo, rope!

Goodness, it’s been a while! These past┬áthree weeks have been a bit of a blur. Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Oxford, Paris, London, and numerous day trips to various towns in the southern UK – definitely great for a wandering woman like me! If only we could stay just a little longer… Highlights? So many! -Biking through the […]
