Taking care of items 66 and 67, I've started a monthly plan with ING for a sum total of €500. Mind you, for at least this month I'll be a bit overdrawn due to overspending on our trip, but I'm sticking to it, even if it doesn't make financial sense in the short term...
As for item 97, on the way to Toronto (in Brussels airport, actually) I gave M a crash course on the family. After approximately three cousins, his head exploded. Nonetheless, my mom organized an get-together with the family during the last week of our stay and he managed magnificently. The following day, as we were driving out of town on one touristy mission or another, he recited the whole bunch. Well done, dude!
As I mentioned before, M and I travelled to Canada recently. We came back on Saturday and I'm still a bit jet-lagged, but here's a bit of what's to come.
The reason we headed to Canada, aside from visiting my family in Toronto, was for M to participate in the North Face Canadian Death Race, held in Grande Cache, Alberta. I won't go into too much detail about the race, since M will be writing a guest entry about it later on. I will say that he finished the race - all 125 kilometers of it - with a time of 23:35 (that's HOURS). Words cannot describe how in awe I am of this man!
After the race and the associated festivities, we headed south for a two day trip through Jasper and Banff national parks. Almost immediately upon entering Jasper national park, we saw an amazing sight: People were walking on water!
The rest of my pictures are still downloading. More to come once I've put them together.
