First few days in Vancouver
By now I’ve been in Vancouver for a little over 50 hours and I’m liking it. We checked into our hostel at 3pm the first day and the rest of the day was spent wandering around waiting to go asleep.

My initial though was to move all my old posts from SG to Tumblr, but after I read though my archive, I decided that I really didn’t like my old posts. So I decided not to. But I did have a few pages that saw some...
It apears I have indeed started to blog here at Tumblr instead of using my own hosted Wordpress.. Let’s see if that ups the posting-rate…
