So, I went to the city to visit my good childhood friend last weekend, because of our conflicting and busy schedules this is an unusually difficult feat. It was my birthday this past month and she got me a beautiful Asahi Pentax film camera! I was ecstatic. Han, being the photography buff she is (and bonafide world travel) could not fathom me traveling with only a 'point and shoot' digital (my Canon). This is the lovely camera (see above) taken on my computer camera (so you can kinda see). I have been practicing using it to make sure I understand shutter speed, focus etc and to make sure everything is in working order. I am very excited to get out and take some more pictures... yesterday I took a walk around campus and shot some of the old buildings... Hope they turn out ok!
This blog has been intended as a travel blog of sorts, although the trip it was originally intended for has come and gone...but there are more in the works! Officially, Summer 2010 we are planning to road trip across Canada with our pup Jinjer and whoever would like to join us :) We are also planning to head north to Alaska/ Yukon and the south down the West coast.
In the meantime, Jack and I will entertain with tidbits of information, interesting facts and random pictures we find amusing. We decided to use an alias just because it seems safer that way because anyone can read your personal information on the web!!! So enjoy our political meanderings (both our passions), and we look forward to somebody, anybody reading our blog...mom....are you out there? Yes my mom reads the blog :S
Anyways, keep following, there will always be more to come as we procrastinate at the library and updates will be ever so often when we find interesting things in our travels through life!
