WOWZERS! The summer has very officially ended with the arrival of snow and cold weather here in Alberta. You know what that means…it is time to Mr. CG and I to flee south for the winter! I honestly do feel like someone pressed fast forward on the summer, it really went by so incredibly fast. […]

A sojourn in Managua usually means staying in a decent hotel, taking hot showers, eating in nice restaurants, and maybe even doing a little shopping. We stayed at our favourite Managua hotel, Hotel Brandt’s, when we returned to Nicaragua from Costa Rica for a couple of nights this time around. After a long day on […]
