true north

in 2009, jeff and i packed up and headed out on a month long road trip across canada. from calgary to halifax, we loaded a few of our belongings, both our brothers and our dog into our car for the long drive east. it's a trip i had done several times before, and one i knew we would do again.

this summer, we've decided to try this trip again. slightly modified as jeff is making it into a bit of a working road trip and we now have a 4 year old in tow, but across this fine country we plan to travel. 

it's both a blessing and a curse having family and friends spread across canada - it's of course wonderful to have places to stay and people to visit with at almost every stop along the way, but it also makes it hard to visit regularly. we don't get east as often as we would like, and it feels like there is never enough time to jam in everything we hope to do while we are there. regardless, this trip will be a wonderful and much longed for adventure after several years of being away.

we aim to leave august 1st and be gone for about 6 weeks - slowly working our way from vancouver to halifax with bigger stops in calgary, toronto, and fredericton. i will share some photos and stories here on the blog, and also over on instagram. feel free to follow along - @paperbluejay
