Who are we
We are a family of 3 who took a break from our routine. Usually we live in Scotland but February to the end of July 2011 we were on the road in North America for 6 months. We are Mark (also known as Dad), Rachel (also known as Mum... and a whole bunch of other names... my usual at-home blog is here) and little h (10/11 years of age during the trip).

Rounding up and rolling high
This past week we've been in Ontario - visiting family, learning new card games (euchre - excellent entertainment), taking trips into Toronto, sorting our stuff for the big road trip to come. We set off from our home-base here this Wednesday and we won't be back till well into July... so quite a lot of sorting and planning to do!
We have had quite a bit of contact with real home this week too - some happy, some really quite the opposite (can't put details, family matter, please don't comment or anything). Some people deal with this all the time of course and we knew things were bound to happen if we were away this long... still, it's weird to be so far away at times.
Below are some pictures from one of the Toronto trips - highlights were an exhibition about the work of director Tim Burton (couldn't take any photos inside the exhibition sadly), a trip up the CN Tower for Mark and h (including a roll on the '342m off the ground' glass floor for h, see above... I went to a ground-level pub with cousins instead) and a mad dash through the city for the train back to the burbs. Their trains leave on time, you know... we just made it.
Next stop Niagara Falls...
