Belem, Portugal

Our second day in Lisbon we decided to head to the town of Belem. There was a lot of history in this little town, and even the place of resistance for the Portuguese President.  We walked around the town, and looked at all of the historical monuments that were set out on the water.  TheContinue reading “Belem, Portugal”

My mother and her family were born in the Portuguese islands of the Azores, they were from the largest island Sao Miguel. My mother came to Canada when she was 5.

There are these beautiful purple trees that I have become obsessedContinue reading “Sydney”

Bondi Beach

After 22 hours on the plane…we have arrived in AUSTRALIA, first stop Bondi Beach…we plan on staying here or about a week. The first day that we got here, it was pretty cold and windy.
