Travelling is always so uplifting for me. I feel completely rejuvenated and full of that "we're all just one big family" spirit that can sometimes get jaded when you live in such a materialistic, monotonous society. I love that nervous energy I get when I step off a plane into the unknown. Everything is new and exciting and the challenge of making friends and finding your way through the chaotic or eerily empty streets is part of the thrill. Ask anyone who travels and they will tell you it's like an addiction. You spend hours daydreaming about the next hit and when it finally arrives the high is unmatched. And when it's over, you still tingle with memories and jetlag and as the hangover kicks in you're back at square one...daydreaming!
But as much as globe trotting can make you indescribably happy, it can also make you undeniably broke! And so, my tail between my legs, I am heading back to the North.
I am embarking on a new and exciting project with the Kativik Regional Government (KRG) as the coordinator for the abandoned mining site clean-up in Nunavik and will spend 3-4 weeks in Kuujjuaq prepping for this summer. I will continue the work from the 'south'- in Victoriaville, where Alain and I will take up residence for at least the next few years.
Everyone is welcome to visit us. New and old friends alike. We have a big beautiful house and lots of cold beer and good stories to share. I hope to see you all soon.
