Welcome to our site, where we will be sharing videos, pictures and stories from our trip around the world, starting August 2020 and not coming home until August 2021!
Caroline and I are both teachers who live near Victoria, British Columbia. We’ve been saving up for a long time for this sabbatical year, where we are taking a break from our jobs to go explore, adventure and learn a lot more about our world and our selves.
We hope to post weekly videos, links to photo albums, stories and artifacts here on our blog. Please subscribe if you want to come along and get notified when we post new stuff! Below is our first video that captures a bit of our start in Canada and jaunt over to Europe, starting in August 2020.
We will miss our home, our families and our friends and schools, but we hope to stay in touch and feel connected with everyone back home as we share our stories here.
As well, I made a short Google Earth video of our route through Canada in Aug-Sept 2020 and our first stop in Lisbon, Portugal.
Welcome to my resurrected blog! I’ve had my own domain since early 2003, and it has gone through many iterations and versions.
I am a Teacher-Librarian at a High School near Sidney BC called Parkland Secondary It is a beautiful part of the world, and I love living there with my wife. We like to garden, cycle, travel and explore our local natural environment that surrounds this amazing peninsula.
My professional interests are around School Libraries and transitions to Library Learning Commons models, as well as Inquiry Based Learning and International Baccalaureate learning as we became an IB World School offering the IB Diploma Program for Sept 2018.
I have lived most of my life around the Salish Sea and appreciate all the beauty, splendor and wealth that it offers us. I am especially grateful for the many first nations and their contributions to our special part of the world.
