"Welcome to Kathryn's Travel Pages" bkathryn's Profile
Travel for me seems to take one of two forms - travel for work and travel for pleasure, not that traveling for work is not pleasurable! Sometimes, my pleasure travel has been courtesy of my spouse's employer as he does a fair amount of work travel, just as I do! Keeps life interesting. Reports on both type of travel are included here.
When I go places, I don't often get to spend very much time. One of the things I like to do, in an attempt to get a better appreciation of where I'm going, is to read travel literature and vicariously experience other people's travel experiences. I will include on my travel pages examples of my reading material.
[Picture from October 1988, BC legislature, Victoria, BC]
This is the same tree in October 2009, that is in the picture with me in the red coat in front of the BC legislature in February 1988. I was a little surprised how fast this Red-cedar grew!
By the way, my "member information" picture is of me (sitting in), my husband (standing by), and the Speaker's Chair in the House of Commons, Ottawa. Nice chair!
