I’ve been flying a lot recently, mostly within North America with a sprinkle of oceanic flights here and there. I mainly fly solo, but on a recent work trip my wife was able to join me, and when that happens we like to make the best of things. And by […]
Arizona – The State of Endless Life Experiences!
The Grand Canyon has always been a place that I’ve wanted to see. Just saying ‘The Grand Canyon’ gives me a warm-n-fuzzy feeling. And now I can finally say I’ve experienced The Grand Canyon, but in visiting Arizona I realized it’s a state of endless life experiences! Okay, let’s start […]
A Trip Home to Australia on the Company Dime!
I have a big confession to make. I’m not really Canadian. It’s true. I’m actually Australian. Put another shrimp on the barbie while I grab us a couple Foster’s Lagers and I’ll tell you about “my trip home to Australia” tale over a Vegemite sandwich. Before I go into it, […]
Making Predictions a Reality in Europe
Europe was never really on my bucket list. Actually, I don’t even have a bucket list. Sometimes I do something then think to myself “hmm, that should’ve been on some sort of list of things I’d like to do before I die”. And oddly enough, the cover of my book; […]
The Yellow Vest Protests Provide a Totally Unique French Experience!
Have you ever felt that you’ve been wronged in a big way? I mean, not like you bought something for $50 and 32 days later it was on sale for 77% off the price you paid. More like something that goes against your entire value system — like someone decided […]
Sell it or Just Donate it
I know I promote selling your stuff and doing something epic, something different, something new and exciting, or just taking that money and spending it on an enjoyable and memorable life experience. The act of selling all my stuff allowed me to do more. In reality, OWNING less stuff meant […]
Pearl Jam Merch – My Fave Band are Sellouts!

5 Ways to Save Big on Your Next Reno
I’m a DIYer. I like to “do it myself”. I’m pretty good at most DIY stuff, but I know my limits, too. DIY can provide some big-time renovation savings. Not knowing your limits can eliminate those renovation savings with a flick of a light-switch, or turn of the tap. But there […]
The Pack-Rat Generation is Finally Unpacking!
Something very unique happened after the 2nd World War — an entire generation of pack-rats was born. Rather than go by “Pack-Rat Generation”, they called themselves Baby Boomers – or at least someone started calling them that. Now, this is totally a generalization. Not all boomers are pack-rats. In fact, […]
The Most Unique New York Experience You’ll Ever…Experience!
Empire State Building. Central Park. Time Square. Yankee Stadium. Broadway. Statue of Liberty. Brooklyn Bridge. Wall Street. You’ll probably hit some, if not all of those major New York City attractions should you visit The Big Apple. And you’ll probably get family and friends tell you to ‘go here’, or […]
