Toiletries : What do I need

I have been thinking really hard lately about what do I really need. Who am I and what does that translate into for needs. Minimalism isn’t about living with less than 100 things to me. It’s about living with the right stuff, for me, to make my life comfortable, happy and easy.

Beautiful British Columbia

Looking back on a wonder Thanksgiving weekend spent in the BC mountains. I was living in Gravelbourg, but had nothing to do for Thanksgiving, so a wonderful friend invited me home with her. She grew up in Jaffery, BC and she was right; it just smells good the minute you get there. It is so […]

Piper’s Lagoon, Neck Point and Departure Bay are all local favourites for spending the day by the ocean. It was amazing to me how strong the ocean smelt here. I don’t remember the ocean smelling as much […]

Things bought for my Trip to Cuba

When we were planning our trip to Cuba we decided we were going to pack as light as possible and make sure that as many items are possible were multi use. Admittedly Robert did a better job of this then I did.  One item that he bought that I will make a purchase of was […]

AirBnb Apartamentos PLAEZ No. 1, Havana, Cuba

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

My husband is getting his taste for travel, but not quite ready to go it alone yet. His Uncle and Aunt love Puerto Vallarta (PV) and were already going for a month in January and invited us to join them. So for the end of January we got to explore PV with a couple of […]
