Ottawa, August 2014

Mark’s clothes are stacked at the bottom of my backpack, I’m picking jeans and shorts from the closet and I’m organizing my Hello Kitty toiletry bag. I packed this bag a dozen of times before. A place for everything and everything in its place, from the clothes to the shampoo bottle, from the sarong to the sandals, from the first-aid kit to the stuffed animal I always bring for good luck.

Yes, we’re going. Again.

We decided it was time to graduate Mark from “easy international trips” (France, the US, Canada and Mexico) to “hell, let’s take an adventure”. At almost two-years old, he is ready for a five-week long culture shock.

I think.

So, where are we going to?

Well, I’m keeping it secret for now. Just because.

Eh, why don’t we make it a game?

Take a guess at our destination and I’ll draw one winner among the good answers (if several people get it right). The prize will be a souvenir from that country.

Need a few clues?

  • Language won’t be an issue.
  • Souvenirs from this country are pretty neat.
  • The flight will be long… long…

And that’s it, folks!

Next post will be written away from home!

  1. Hm, language won’t be an issue… that leaves us with English, French and Mandarin. Since you mentioned the “culture shock”, it’s probably not Australia or New Zealand. Nobody who reads the news would currently travel to Africa, so I guess I vote for China (or “Wongcouver”, no big difference 😉 ).

  2. Yeah travels! The souvenir hint made me think of Japan but then I am not sure you speak Japanese.. So I will go with China! Can’t wait to read your next adventures

  3. So many possibilities…but I am guessing Australia. You’re packing for some beach time, it’s a long flight and there are neat souvenirs aplenty. Have a great trip wherever it may be.
