So I wasn’t sure I would actually post anything here after I “swallowed the anchor” and got back home.
There are a few things I think that should be included though.
John has posted a fantastic map of our trip on his blog. He had a pocket GPS with him that recorded our location at noon everyday. He exported all the data into an application that let him generate a map. He also has exported the data to Google Maps that allow you to zoom into every place we went.
This is, as they say, a COOL THING ™!
You can check out John’s post here:
It is really odd being back home after all the time away. I am very happy to be back home with my family and, now that it is warming up a bit (it snowed here last week!), I’m actually enjoying doing yard work instead of deck wash and rust busting
However it is strange to be here where things are both totally familiar and yet slightly different. I imagine it as being a bit like experiencing a parallel universe. Not sure how long that feeling will last but it’s still strange nearly 3 weeks from our arrival in Lunenberg.
Work is a good example, my office was almost identical to the way it was when I left, there was even the same items on my to do list on the white board! However the economic situation is such that the company has had to do some belt tightening so some of the consultants I used to work with are gone. Walking around in the office leaves me with a similar “Temporal Shadow” feeling like I had in Martinique.
On the plus side they want me to do a “show and tell” on Thursday to give them a feel for how my trip went which should be fun. So I get to spend the next few days going over my 3000 some odd pictures trying to put this trip into a 45 minute slide show.
Wish me luck!
I may post more stuff here as I’m not sure I’m exactly finished with my Atlantic Passage just yet. Check back every now and then and, as always…
Thanks for reading.
