It's Time to Get Personal Again!!

Enquiring Minds Want to Know!!

1. Have you ever traveled outside of Canada?
I have travelled quite a bit outside of Canada.  I have been to Mexico several times, to Jamaica, to Dominican Republic.  I did an exchange to France when I was in high school, plus I have travelled to Europe on different excursions.  I have been to Scotland, England, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, and Croatia.  I have also travelled quite extensively in the United States.  I am supposed to be going to Italy next year.

2. If you could pack up today on a vacation and money was no issue where would you go?
That's a no-brainer.  Everywhere!!!

3. Is there somewhere in Canada that you have never been that you would like to visit?
I would love to go to British Columbia as I have never been.  We're planning on going in the next few years, but we'll see how it goes.  My family has a goal and we've been trying to meet it.  We have a map of Canada and the United States posted in our office and our goal is to visit each state in the United States and each province in Canada.  So far we have been to Florida, Georgia, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, New York, Washington D.C., Maryland, and Michigan.  As a family, we have only travelled through Ontario, although both my husband and I have travelled through Quebec and many of the eastern provinces.

Series? Or stand-alone books?
It really depends.  There are some series I absolutely love.  Jeaniene Frost's novels come to mind as well as Ayla and Jondalar's story in the Earth Children's series.  There are some I got tired of pretty quickly and have a really hard time going back to, even though I have heard it's worth picking them up again.  An example of this is The Wheel of Time series.  I got stuck somewhere in the middle of Book 7 and haven't read any since then.  I also had a hard time with Richard and Kahlan's story as I couldn't handle seeing them get into so much trouble all of the time.  It got to the point where I wanted to see them be happy.  And there are some I will never continue as they just got worse over time and it's time to pack it in.

I also adore stand-alone books too.  Sometimes it's nice to read something knowing there's only going to be one book and that's it.  It's a break from the series and trilogies and I don't have to wait years waiting for the next book to be published.  Besides, some books are never meant to have sequels.


  1. I am so jealous of all of the places that you've visited!

  2. I am afraid I have only been outside England once. A lovely relaxing holiday to The Canary Islands.
    I do plan to travel more though
