IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE it’s already been almost two months since I left Australia. Herein lies the trick. When you’re traveling, how do you make time slow down? I would reckon by not moving too much, and this is exactly what Yvonne and I are trying to do. Of course, this is easier said than done when you’ve got itchy feet.
I’m currently in my hometown of Vancouver, Canada for one month. I just witnessed Canada bring home the most gold medals of any country in the history of the Winter Olympic Games. Wait, I guess there’s no “bringing home” necessary, it all happened right here in my backyard.
This li’l trip of ours is turning into one big Matador meet ‘n’ greet. If all goes to plan I’ll be meeting Sarah Menkedick, editor at Abroad, in her hometown of Oaxaca, Mexico later this month.
And there are many more of you lying in my path that I hope to run into. This is why I’m so passionate about this Community. Not only are Matadorians so welcoming and engaging in cyberspace, but they extend this to the real world, where it really counts.
We’ve recently been hammering home the point about the importance of transparency, and you can’t get much more transparent than that.
Until we meet!
