Remembrance Day 2016

Remembrance Day 2016

I walked around in silence between 11:00 until 11:11 in the morning, then it felt appropriate to sing O'Canada. I sang in a few different places around the cemetery for those that rest here.  I was inspired to participate in an act of remembrance, as I am each time I visit one of these cemeteries on Canadian soil in the Netherlands. Being present, wearing a poppy and singing our national anthem is my gift of thanks.

Budapest with a Camera

In July of this year, I had the opportunity to meet up with a Canadian friend and his family in Hungary for a tour around Budapest before they proceeded to a family reunion the following week. I booked the cheapest travel possible, which worked out to be a 21-hour bus ride from Amsterdam arriving a couple days before my friend. That was ok! I had Budapest to explore, and my camera in hand.
