Our first few travels were simply to experience other countries and cultures and/or escape a Canadian winter!
The desire to live full time in a warm climate prompted Caribbean travels to Antigua, Barbados, and Grand Cayman Island, followed by a lengthy trip that included Singapore, Malaysia, New Zealand and Australia. Our first choices for relocation were Australia and New Zealand but acceptance for residency was akin to winning a lottery! Upon return to Canada the prospect of permanent relocation was shelved but not forgotten.
