February 2013 Newsletter
11-Feb-2013

In October, Dana returned to Canada after spending four years working with us. In true pioneer spirit, Dana and her husband Brian decided to turn their journey home into a real adventure. On the first leg they caught a cargo ship to Auckland, then boarded another vessel and spent 18 days crossing the Pacific Ocean on their way to Oakland. The irony was that Dana has never previously spent more than 24 hours on a boat. Not to be daunted, she made the most of the opportunity and caught up on some reading! On the next leg our intrepid friends travelled by Amtrak train to Vancouver. You may think this epic story would have ended when they make it back to Canada. Fear not, they have now purchased a motor home and started driving across Canada. At the moment, they are not certain when and where they are going to settle down. We will keep you posted!
