Your Escape Blueprint

Five months and thankful!

Surprised? I was…… is it really five months since we handed the keys over and set out!

Looking back we have covered a lot of ground, visiting 17 different countries and clocking up over 12,000 km on our lease car in Europe and who knows how much in the UK…….. we didn’t quite visit all corners, even if  it felt like it. From my home town in the East Midlands we went to Cornwall, Conwy Wales, Aberdeen Scotland and explored the coastline nearer home visiting Hunstanton, Wells & Cromer

Mike has taken over 10,000 photographs, some of which you may have seen………. Fantastic aren’t they?

Yes we are back in Canada as planned! This is not the end of our adventures only a maintenance stopover……. All that fun stuff like Doctors, Dentist, Bookkeeping and even my Orthodontist (yes I finished my Invisalign treatment and have a brand new smile……. I am going to miss my visits to Dr Smith’s office and Susan’s cheery smile! This break also gives us a chance to catch up with family, friends and what a perfect time to be home! Thanksgiving dinner was superb……. My Mother-in-Law is a fantastic cook!

Maintenance is now done including checking in on our tenant’s, pleased to report that all is well there. I have to be honest renting our house out was not a easy decision, however it is working out perfectly, all that work up front paid off. I remember the apprehension as we were working towards this.

Myself and Mike just cannot stop smiling, I shocked my Dr when I greeted him with a cherry hello and big smile, guess that is not normal. Life just keeps getting better! The journey continues so stay tuned!

We will be spending the next few weeks getting ready for the next stage of our adventure! Central America here we come! Sun, Sea, Sand and Scuba for us this winter!

About the author: Born in the UK, with what must be more than a dash of Romany blood in her veins, Yvonne loved to travel even before she met Michael. Yvonne has a varied career history, which includes several laborious years as a laboratory manager, followed by a fun few years as a scuba instructor and crew in the British Virgin Islands, and then many boring years in financial services. Her discontent along with the passing of a dear friend was the prod that led to the realisation that there was a lot more do in life. It has taken almost 40 years to come full circle to realize what Yvonne’s English teacher saw all those years ago……… Yvonne’s true passion (apart from travel) is writing and now finds herself fortunate to have the time to follow her bliss and combine the two as a blogger and travel writer. Yvonne loves to tell stories and talk to lots of strangers (the best way to get the real scoop on the place). Yvonne is a “rainmaker” and makes things happen!
