A Year of Adventuring: March

LifeMonthly UpdateTravelWork

March was an exciting month. I presented at my first conference, ebookcraft, which was in Toronto. I’d never been to Toronto before, so that was a completely new adventure in itself!

As the months go by, I find myself feeling extremely lucky that I have a job where I’m supported and encouraged to do things like travel to conferences and share my experience. (Mostly because I’ve never really thought that I had anything worth sharing.) But just as in my travels, I find that the more I go places and talk, the more I realize how important it is to me. I love talking to people and . There’s a simple humanness to learning from each other that makes the hours of preparation and nerves worth it.

Now, the exciting part: Toronto!

I’ve been to Canada before, briefly, to visit Niagara Falls, but I really consider this my first Canadian experience. Something about exploring the city on foot makes it a completely new experience, and I’m thankful that I had the chance to spend some time in Toronto after the conference was done. I learned a lot about myself, as usual, and also about my boyfriend, who I was traveling with. For example, he loves trains. I know this because we spent many hours in a railroad museum while he drove the train simulator. We also took a tour of a local brewery (Steam Whistle Brewing) and saw The Book of Mormon, which was hilarious.

Mostly it was a welcoming and relaxing vacation, not too planned or hurried. I’ll admit I often try to pack too much into my short travels (as you’ll see in my entry for April), but this was pretty perfect.
