We have been among your most dedicated fans. This global expedition is a remarkable way to help the less adventurous vicariously enjoy our planet.
We look forward to your updates.
You should conduct a blog building seminar at TMAC’s Ottawa gathering…maybe you are? This production is excellent…and fun.
Thanks Pat! All kudos due to http://www.rondoylewrites.com. I’ve tweaked things here and there but he’s the brains behind the site’s design for sure. I’d love to chat about my experiences with blogging though. Any time.
This is going to be so much fun. I can hardly wait!
Have a great adventure! We will miss you guys.
We’ll miss you too! In no time we’ll be back chatting about how fast it went.
You seem to be having a good time so far. Continue to have lots of fun and enjoyment.
I surely hope you are going to South America. The kids will learn at lot in Quito, Ecuador. They got to see the monument right in the middle of the World. Right beside Mitad del Mundo, is a museum about the Incas and they will show you how the water runs different depending if you are facing south or north. Pretty Cool!
We are! And Quito is on the list! Thanks for the tip.
Just dropping a line from Belgium where its gray and rainy al week lang. So enjoy your beterweathers where ever you guys are. Hope all is well. Hi to your boyz and wife.
(we met at Caribe in Cartagena, swimming pool chat)
What a wonderful way to educate your boys. They will learn more this year than they will in all their years of traditional schooling. I just read about your travels in the Toronto Star. Kudos to you for doing what most of us only dream of.
Thanks Wendy. They are learning more every day…and so are we!
Hey Mustafa, We landed in Beijing about two weeks ago and slowly headed south toward Guilin. Glad to hear you’re back home. Say hi to Sylvia and keep in touch.
so I walk into this restaurant on Huai Hai Lu, a Sichuan place and I see this family of 4 sitting at a table, a young Mom and a young Dad and two young kids. They’re Black and speaking American. We’re in Shanghai. You don’t see many African-American “gui lou’s” in China – a focus on the “American” and not African part. And so I walk over and say “I heard you speaking American” (or something similarly “we’re both from somewhere else together”), and Heather smiles and says they’re Canadian – eh, excuse me. And it was lovely to talk, and your blog is beautifully put together and what I’ve read so far is beautifully written. Travel well.
Such a pleasure to meet you last night. Looking forward to reading your book and hope you’ll stay in touch and weigh in on our journey.
I’m a student in MIS.G’S class I was wondering what your favourite food is.

Remember me? We met in the Shanghai airport as I was on my way to Australia. I’m actually back in Newfoundland and would be thrilled if you looked me up on your way through here. Hope your journey is still going well and I got connected to this reading an article on the canadian living website, its so great your keeping a record of this!
We’re excited too. Can’t wait to meet you all!
Thanks for tuning in Jacqueline. So glad you’re sharing it with your kids. We’re working hard to get more of our stories up quickly. So much to tell!
Yes, we remember meeting you! We’d love to meet up when we pass through Nfld. Hope Oz went well for you.
What an amazing great trip to be on with your family. I am so glad to have found you and now I can keep up with your travels. Best of luck to you and your family.
I enjoyed your piece in Canadian Living and plan to revisit your site when planning our family’s sabbatical for some ideas. Happy trails!
Thanks! We are glad you didtoo
Thanks. Looking forward to sharing even more
Hi Heather and Ish and Boys, I’ve been reading your website for a while, but as a not very computer literate person I just figured out that I can say hi. It’s so great to see that you are having such an amazing time and seeing all these fabulous places and meeting lots of great people. I loved the chinese haircut article. So glad to hear that GAP made Galapagos possible for you. It’s such an amazing place. You asked for some tips – try not to miss Varanasi in India and I am sure that Ngorongoro crater is on your list in Tanzania. I am looking forward to more of your experiences. Keep healthy and travel safe.
Margaret Bugdahn, your doc from Unionville
Hi Dr. Bugdahn!
Thanks for the tips! So glad you’re reading (and commenting!). We’re all doing our best to stay healthy and so far no one has been sick. It has been an experience of a lifetime and we’re all looking forward to the days ahead.
Please continue to chime in,
Heather, Ish, Ethan and Cam

Good job on the map, it helps to put things in perspective and brings the magnitude of your travels greater relevance.
Hang tight, enjoy, ABC. Great stuff
We love following your travels. Both my classroom and my three children have been travelling along with you. My girls have decided that when KT is in Grade 8 we will go to Paris to celebrate. Thanks for sharing your family adventrues with the world
