The End

Sorry for leaving everyone hanging for so long! As you can see, I did, in fact, fly home eventually. :)

This trip made such an impact on my life; I am truly forever changed. I vow to keep my experiences and observations from around the world close to my heart during my career, my friendships, and my life.

Thanks to everyone who read, commented, and followed along during this giant adventure. I loved knowing someone was out there caring! Please don't hesitate to contact me or ask me any questions about my experience. I can be reached at

Wishing you health and happiness,

Goin' Home

Canal Tour 4

Typical houses with a houseboat in front

Beautiful dark brick place with flowers

Attempt to take a pic of the hooks on all the houses

Here we go- a better view of the beams with hooks. All houses have these to help with moving furniture, etc. since they can't use the curvy circular staircases.
