TRAVEL SNAPSHOT: 215 Days In 2016

We began the year with our annual winter diving/snorkelling excursion to Cozumel MEXICO. In summer, we road tripped (16 plus weeks) from Ontario to the north and western regions of North America in both, CANADA and the USA

This snapshot includes Trips 139 - 140 (from our Trip Index) and covers a portion of 2016. 

Our next snapshot will begin mid-December of 2016. We fly to Spain then and stay until early January 2017. After that, we're off to Portugal, UAE, Singapore and New Zealand. We'll be back in Canada by late March.
