Since Dave and I retired from teaching in 2011 October has been the month we usually set off on some kind of short adventure. We spend two weeks or so in a place we’ve never been before to learn new things and do new things.
Last October we were on a cycling trip in Croatia.
In October 2018 we were in Utah.
In October of 2017 we were in Iceland.
In October 2016 we were in Newfoundland.
In October of 2015 we were in Quebec City.
In October of 2014 we were visiting family in southern Ontario.
In October of 2013 we had just returned from a reunion with some of our Hong Kong students in Toronto.
In October of 2012 we made a trip to New York City.
In October of 2011 we visited Chicago.
Even though we can’t have a two week adventure in another place this October it is nice to remember our past October travels and to dream about places we might go in future Octobers when the world is a little more stable.
