Hello from the other siiiiide...
After 3+ years of blogging only in my mind - a period of time dominated by raising a girl and doing very little travelling - I am back online.
Except, this time, it's coming to you from Montreal and not Amsterdam.
After almost seven years in Holland's remarkable, rainy, and occasionally really annoying capital, I've moved back to my birthplace.
It's only been a week so far, and seeing things for the first time in many ways (I haven't lived here for 20 years) is exceptionally refreshing. As a wise stranger named Shunryu Suzuki says:
“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few”
This is a quick hello post - posts to come in the next few days and months will include pictures, impressions, reviews, and occasional rants. Happy to read your comments and suggestions too...
