Prologue I: Vancouver

The big trip has finally began! Before we start with the big stuff, I’ve got a couple of things I should write about that happened at the start of the big adventure that deserves its own post. Before I reach the Philippines, I need a connecting flight since Winnipeg is way too far from the […]
