The Start, Day 1, Leaving Home May 15, 2013
Three years ago my wife Lyn and I did a trip around the world. As a way to do justice to an eight month back packing adventure and to clarify the story of our journey I am going to post paintings and sketch’s starting from the beginning of our journey back in Squamish, BC, Canada.
Lyn and I had been planning this great adventure for some time and so when we sold our house in Squamish we had a big garage sale and put the remainder of our belongings into storage. With that done, we loaded up the car with camping gear with the plan of driving across the United States to Boston as the first leg of our trip.
Here is the story of our trip in sketch’s and paintings. Driving down the Sea to Sky highway from Whistler on our way to Vancouver, BC. we spotted a mother black bear and her cubs. We thought this was a great omen of things to come and a great way to leave our mountain home.
Follow us a we go back through a trip that took us to 96 cities and 15 countries on our eight month journey.
