The longest journey begins with a single step...

Selling our home in Fergus, by Shona

As you likely already know, Norm and I are preparing for a five month backpacking trip through Mexico and Central America with our three kids: Ailsa (10), Mirren (8), and Fraser (5).

We recently sold our home in lovely Fergus, Ontario, Canada, moved our remaining pared-down possessions into storage, and are essentially squatting in Norm's parents' condo in Guelph (they are out east for the summer) until we leave on our trip on December 1st.

We moved to Fergus 10 years ago when Ailsa was only a few weeks old and we had the most wonderful years there living the best of small-town life to its fullest and meeting many fantastic people. We will sadly miss our life in Fergus as we plan to permanently relocate down the road to Guelph following our trip. But we have a bucketful of memories and amazing friendships to keep us strongly connected with that special place.

This blog is intended to keep our family and friends (and our kids' friends!) up-to-date with our travels. 'Salsa Sojourns' seemed an apt title for our family's travel blog. We will be trying our best to 'sojourn' in a few spots along our intended route, rather than whipping around seeing all the sights as we would have done in our previous child-free (comparatively stress-free?) travels. And 'salsa'... well as many of our friends can attest, Norm has an obsession of sorts with perfecting his homemade salsa and we are all (well, maybe not Fraser...) very excited to try new foods and flavours while there. And 'salsa' music? Yes please! And hopefully some mariachi, reggae, calypso and Garifuna punta as well! And who knows, we may even learn to dance the 'salsa'. (Stop laughing). ;-P

So, Salsa Sojourns it is.
We hope you enjoy sharing our adventures!
Shona, Norm, Ailsa, Mirren & Fraser
