About Us

We are a family of 4, Darren, Lyane, Jessica and Drew.  We live in the vast Prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada and absolutely  love living here, however, we are just a little curious to see what’s out there in this big world of ours.  So we started saving money about 4 years ago through a program that Lyane’s work offers (The deferred salary payment program).  Without this program, we are 100% sure that this trip would not take place, as we like to spend $$$  a little too much.  This trip around the world is definitely Lyane’s idea and dream, but she has such a supportive family that they all decided to help her realized her dream.

  2. Hi gang!
    Elsie came by bus to help me on Tuesday. Your house now looks fit for a magazine. I left at 2:30 on Wedn. went shopping for a lounge chair and found one at Jisk.The old one that was in my yard broke and I fell on my ass. No damage done to myself. That’s when fat comes in handy. Hope you are enjoying New York to the fullest.

It was like the amazing race!! We will phone you this week, when we are out of Dublin. Love ya Lyane

  3. Lyane, I hope NY was up to expectations. Your house was picture perfect when I left. Elsie helped me on the first day.

  10. Hey Lyane,
    Have a great big beer for me and learn to swear like the Irish. For Scotland, change “beer” in the former sentence to “Oatmeal”.

    My cousin met you this week in Africa – she was about to climb kilamanjaro – she’s currently doing the climb now. She told us about you guys in a quick email when she said she met some amazing people on her journey.

    I am so interested in your adventure – and that you did it by saving, and have a family.

    Can you tell me – realistically – about how much for the year to do what you’re doing?
    ball park range?
    i would love to take a similar adventure in the future!!!

  15. Today Dec 7th, I r’cvd e-mail. They are now in India. Still difficult to get internet. Keep posted.

  16. Thought of you guys today and luckily enough there was an update!!! Sounds like India was very interesting. I am taking the blog to work as I taught about the Caste System this semester after teaching Slumdog Millionaire…can’t wait to share the info with the kids!!!
    Have fun in Australia!

  17. Deaqr Mclelland – Loved hearing about your Bondi adventures – kids learning to surf etc. I’m the producer of Bondi Rescue so got a message on Google Alert. Enjoy hearing visitors fresh perspectives of the beach.

    All the best.

    We love all your pictures and colourful narrative. We hope your travels will include our place on your way back home – you’re all very welcome anytime!

  19. Today, April 23 2010 saw the firstday I visited your Blog.

    I am glad things are well and know now that you have made a great life choice doing what you did to get you on this trip.

    There could not possibly be a better life experience for you and your family

  20. Hey Lyane,
    Looks like things are going well. Bernadette is trying to get a hold of you to tell you her placement. Can you send her an email?

  21. I just thought about Cari’s message. Maybe we will be working together next year Lyane!! I am home in Regina now, waiting for Spring. The winter in Europe was the coldest in recent memory…but I had a great time in the fall and decided to go back after Christmas. No regrets!! I must say it feels good to sleep in your own bed though….I am now sniffing around for a few cheap flights to entertain myself during the last few months of freedom!! I am really happy I discovered your blog!!

  22. Nice blog post and Thanks for sharing
