About Me

Victoria, BC, Canada
Welcome to our roadshow: Amos, Naeva, Ian and Kristina on the go for six months. We're saying goodbye to our real life in Victoria BC, and heading out to see a bit of the world. Australia, Thailand and Europe - by camper, bike, foot and everything in between. Thanks for joining us on our travels!

Skiing with the Olympians

Spent a great day in Ottawa with Ian's sister Jolanta and family, who managed to track down enough cross-country ski gear and warm clothes
to outfit the Victorians for a day in the woods.

Headed up to the Gatineau Hills to their cross-country ski club for a ski and lunch in the hut by the wood stove. There is an international competition in Ottawa this week, and we shared the nearly empty trails with the Gods of the Norwegian, Russian, Italian and German national (men's) cross-country teams. The kids had fun yelling hello in their languages as they flew by. Nice scenery.
Ian and Amos stayed to cheer on the cousins in their annual cookie race (brilliant: they race for medals made out of cookies) while Naeva and I visited with some Victoria friends, then joined more Scott cousins for 12 of us around the table for Sunday dinner.

Finishing up a late night of packing. So far, so good. Had to give last rites to my duffel bag after it exploded in Vancouver; thanks Dono for the loan, and to Jolanta for living a few blocks from MEC for a replacement. All set for the 26 hour trip tomorrow! Will write from Sydney.
