This photo was taken during my flight back from Hong Kong. I spent 4 months travelling and it was an eye opening experience.

My first two months were spent in Malta, Italy, France, Monaco, and the Netherlands. An unforgettable experience filled with history and amazing people along the way.

Cinque Terre Italy. 5 Villages along one coast line.

The remaining two months was spent in Asia to see my humble family on the outskirts of Hong Kong followed by a trip to Bangkok, Koh Phangan, Pattaya and Macau.

A slight chasm was evident in the environment and cultural learnings between Europe and Asia. Not necessary a night and day experience but overall Asia is not as established as Europe. However, the common theme I witnessed across both continents is that people worked hard. They worked hard to be happy and it was all for family.

This observation grew on me and I was even more thankful to descend into Vancouver to see my family for the Christmas holidays.

Before I knew it, I was on another plane looking out the window and seeing the same view. I knew Toronto was going to be the next chapter . I knew it was going to be my new home. And I am excited.
