Travel excuses

Well, not excuses not to travel. Or to travel. Just excuses to explain lack of progress in writing, no blog posts, too much good food and wine, too little exercise (except for the 20,000 steps a day trip to Alberta, which I’m fairly sure did not offset the aforementioned good food and wine).

In the last month, I’ve been in Drumheller, Banff, Muskoka, Peterborough, Pefferlaw, and home.  I’ve fallen behind in almost everything except fun.  

My travel tip for this summer is – if you’re in Drumheller, you should make a side trip to Torrington, home of the Gopher Hole Museum.  Because stuffed gophers dressed up to reflect the life of the town are a wonderful thing and the tiny museum itself is a pleasure.  They even have the letters they received after they launched in 1995.  The good folks at PETA expressed displeasure, the good folks of Torrington told them to “get stuffed” and world fame ensued.
