Our next overseas trip! I was so excited to pick up and jet set that I must've packed my bags a month before we were due to leave! Our first European stop was Paris.

Matt had been hearing about all my fishing and kayaking trips while he was gone and wanted to join the fun, so we trekked down to Papa Bear's house and took the kayaks out on the Basin for some fishing good times. Now Matt is usually terrible with animals. I mean that in the nicest… Read More "Kayaking and Fishing at St Georges Basin"

Poor Matty did not start the new year in good shape. All the drinking and cigars was not a good choice for him. I had to practically drag him to the airport to get our flight to Langkawi.
