Our family has embarked on virtual travels to various countries and regions. To explore these countries and their cultures, we have followed along with the festivals, cooked and eaten traditional foods, learned of traditional handicrafts with hands on exploration, along with many activities to immerse ourselves. Chronicled here are some of these activities.

Our Summer in a Nutshell

Playing in the mud on a day that turned unexpectedly warm & sunny
Summer is nearly over, and though I look forward to our fun filled autumns, I am already missing the slow pace of the last couple of months! It has been a easy summer, spent either on road trips around our province, checking out the cultural activities in the city - including a couple of African cultural events - or each of us engrossed in our own books. I cannot say it has been a particularly productive summer, but it has been mighty relaxing!

Lazing in Canada's largest hammock
I can't say I'm sorry I haven't been very present on the blog for the past 6 weeks (Wow, that is quite some time!), but we are back, and ready to continue exploring West Africa. I hope you've had a lovely summer!


  1. I missed you! I'm glad you had a lovely rest and that massive hammock is just class! Can you imagine having one permanently in your back garden?
    Looking forward to all your lovely posts!

    1. Elle would absolutely love to have that giant hammock - though I reckon she'd like to use it like a trampoline :)


Thanks for stopping by to visit. Please feel free to leave a comment, it's lovely to hear from you!
