When I Am Sick As F@#K

When I Am Sick As F@#K

There are few things, for me, that make feeling miserable not so… miserable.

  • Cat cuddled and purring on lap: check, wait… no check. Ok, check again… and… nevermind.
  • Big comfy sweater, sweat pants, and warm socks: check, check, check

7 Foods You Must Try in Vancouver

7 Foods You Must Try in Vancouver

Arguably, the best food in the world can be found in and around Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Authentic, sometimes century-old, family recipes have made their way here along with the people that have immigrated, from near and far.

The accessibility to quality ingredients (such as fresh fish, organic produce, and free-range, organic meats) has exposed us Westerners to the very best dishes from Cuba, India, Ethiopia, France, Italy, China, Mongolia, Korea, Lebanon, you name it…

Five Years on the Road: A Synopsis

Five Years on the Road: A Synopsis

 2012

Since 2012 Lue and I have been living full time in an RV. We started off in a 28′ Sunseeker motorhome with 2 cats, 1 of which was geriatric. Seriously, Tigger was 23 years old but other than being completely blind, was pretty healthy. The other one, Stitch, was a rambunctious 3-month-old kitten that we rescued from an industrial area parking lot.

This conversation actually happened…

Lucien: What do you feel like doing?

Anna: I don’t know, what do you wanna do?
