Chris and I spent much of 2014 adjusting to a more stationary life after our trip around the world. We weren't traveling to an exotic locale every day, but we managed to find new adventures both near and far. 2014 brought us to Miami, a Caribbean Cruise (through a polar vortex), Austin, the Outer Banks, Nantucket, Maine, Vermont, Costa Rica, NYC, Jamestown RI, and several trips to see family in Puerto Rico.
In 2015, we'll be focused on making some exciting investments in our future - all of which will be revealed and (hopefully) celebrated in good time. Although much of our time and resources will be dedicated to these new projects, we will still find time to travel. In fact, we already have two trips planned this winter - a family visit to San Juan, Puerto Rico (including a quick jaunt to Fajardo) and a weekend in Quebec, Canada for their annual winter carnival. Here is a preview of the adventures ahead (and of future BV blog entries!):
Quebec Winter Carnival
- massive ice castles
- ice climbing
- unbelievable snow sculptures
- colorful night parades
- dog sled races
- ice canoe race
Other reasons why I'm excited about this adventure include poutine, practicing my French, and staying at the famous Chateau Frontenac hotel. Chris is looking forward to trying to local fare, including the signature drink called Caribou made of hot red wine, whisky, and maple syrup. Here are some pictures of the festival from past years. Fingers crossed we get good weather because that could really make or break this trip!
Cheers to new adventures in 2015!
