We have decided that our precious vacation time is best spent during the winter and have therefore devised a plan to get away on some short hops only throughout the year in 2016. Johnny is heading to Iceland on April 21st for 7 days with his Mom. I’m heading to Halifax, Nova Scotia and Saint John, New Brunswick for 4 days on April 22nd.
We have four (4) three (3) day camping trips booked throughout the summer and plans to attend our local Jazzfest and Bluesfest and hike as often as we can. We are incredibly lucky to live in a city that is totally surrounded by terrain and trails of all kind. I’m really looking forward to getting started! We just need the ‘winter’ feel to go away. Here it is April 6th and we are expecting 15 cm of snow *sigh* (yes, I deep sigh a LOT in the winter 🙂 !
Beyond August, we don’t really have any plans and at that time we will turn our attention to our Winter 2017 Central American adventure. As it stands right now, our plan is to fly to Belize City, Belize stay in a pre-arranged hotel the first night and then simply ‘strike off’ in hopes of finding places to lay our head each night. We are hoping for a three week trip that comprises south coast Belize, a couple of stops in Guatemala (most notably Lake Atitlan) and then off to the Bay Islands in Honduras.
I will let you know how Johnny did in Iceland and the girls and I survived the East Coast of Canada in a few weeks!
