This time last year, I was in Maui, Hawaii with my friends for an Acros Tour. We left Edmonton International Airport - YEG on May 3. Even though we were only in Maui for a week, it was still a week filled with memories.
Looking back, I realized how much I miss being in Hawaii - especially right now since there’s currently a thunderstorm here in Vancouver. I miss smelling the salty air that blows when we’re on the beach. I miss the humidity that made our sunscreen run causing each and everyone of us to get sticky. I miss the fresh fruits that we had every day. I miss the Hawaiian barbecues that we go crazy for. I miss the endless van rides taking us from point A to point B.
As I look back, even though I didn’t take a lot of pictures, I have enough to make me smile. This year, I won’t be travelling until July, but adventures all throughout BC are still in the making. I have a couple of months to enjoy what home has to offer until I fly to the other side of the country. Until then, I gotta make the most of my time here to be as adventurous as I can.

We’d now like to feature ah, how coarse, how coarse these English people can be, as England sinks into the British channel, here we are in North America. Right Vancouver, we give you an experience you’ll never forget, more stunning than Lysergic Acid Diethylamide titrate, a man over there has just had diarhea. Ladies and gentlemen, the man with only two cavities, John Bonham. Moby Dick.

Kaidan pressed a little kiss on the young girl’s forehead, “I’ll be right back, you wait here okay?”
The girl nodded, an earnest frown between her brows. “I wait here, just here.”
“That’s right,” Kaidan said, “I won’t be long.” He nodded towards the young woman manning the desk who had agreed to watch over his daughter. She smiled and handed the girl a few pens and paper.
He turned towards the hallway, looking for Admiral Anderson and the smile fell from his face. Something had happened. He could hear it in the clipped orders, hissed into omni-tools, see it in the brisk walks of officials, who were much too highly decorated to walk so fast through the hallways of the Alliance headquarters. He had been called here for a meeting just as he had been in a neighboring park with his daughter and then suddenly everyone went into high alert.
He searched the crowds for a familiar face. He finally saw the dark and stressed face of Anderson and began shouldering his way through the crowd. But then he froze. She was with him. Shepard.
