Treena's Travels

This blog was set up to journal my experience of living in Nunavut and keep friends and family up to date on these happenings. It's a wonderful place, this hideaway in the north, and I'm loving my time here. An unforgettable place with unforgettable people. I'm lucky to be here.

It's been another busy week here in Baker; my mom and auntie have been up visiting. They've taken in the sights and we've spent the time visiting and playing cards which was great. And as I write this, they are sitting at the table listening to the local radio and playing bingo. Too funny... But, all good things come to an end and they are homeward bound tomorrow afternoon.

Anyway, here are a few pics from their trip.

The gals on the first leg of their trip up

My aunt Chrissie standing beside a snowdrift

More snow...

My mom trying her hand at some Inuit games

Mom and I at the Nunamiut lodge having lunch

Trying my hand at string games - the kids taught me how to do this cup and saucer.

And with all the excitement I hadn't even noticed until today how much time is left in the school year. There is less than a month before school is out and I am again Alberta-bound! I'm really looking forward to that (especially the haircut!). I'm really hoping to spend some time in Edmonton and I'll be heading out east for a couple of weddings which will be really nice. A trip to Newfoundland and one to the Ottawa area; I've never been either place and I'm pretty pumped about it. I've always wanted to check out NFLD and this is the perfect opportunity! And Ottawa, well what can I say? I've heard so many good things about it that I can't wait to go and check it out with the gang. Good times...

Treena! I'm completely new as a blogger but I just discovered your incredible site! The photo of you with the string cup took me back to my childhood! I LOVED doing this! I live in a Land Down Under and it's winter here but NOTHING as cold as where you are. You're the first blogger I've contacted and I send you the warmest regards. Jan.s

More realistically, how many times do you end up with a "he said, she said" type of a situation? How many times do you get questionable information, are unable to get any further clarification and find yourself stuck between words on a paper and an employee's verbal explanation?
