Not Even A Travel Disaster Is Keeping Me From Goofy

After the most ridiculous travel “adventure” I have landed in Orlando. It’s warm and the fresh air feels amazing. I have to give a big shout out to Mark and Jeff for patiently waiting for me at the Orlando airport while my flight was delayed and delayed and delayed some more. It started with a…

I Don’t Actually Want To Take Over A Small Country…

I just want to feel as if I could.🙂 I’m currently on the train headed to Toronto. For those who normally take the bus, let me just tell you that travelling by train is far more civilized. Yes, it’s slightly more expensive, but for the extra cost you get more leg room, free wifi, bigger…
