We hope you love to travel as much as we do!

Mary Ann & CJ


We love to travel, which is something we weren’t always able to do, other than scheduled holidays, as we worked full time.

But a few years ago, the traveling bug hit us and we decided to see some of the world – Nova Scotia many times, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, and a short stay in Costa Rica.

In late 2016 we sold everything we did not need, packed our bags and headed to Costa Rica for six months, and returned the following year for another six months. For the past two years we’ve resided in a small Mexican town called Puerto Morelos, which is situated between Cancun & Playa Del Carmen.

When back in Canada we house sit for others along the way, which enables us to experience different cultures, locales and it suits our budget!

Getting ready for a Quad trip in Costa Rica

I’ve a wonderful family – a funny and interesting husband, fantastic kids and step kids, and three grand children; although it is difficult being away from them, my husband and I chose to live life the way we wanted to and for us, that meant traveling.

  • I’m an avid reader, love crossword puzzles and playing scrabble.

  • Wine and coffee are my drinks of choice.

  • I never travelled anywhere, intentionally, until 6 years ago.

  • I had two successful publications that I founded and operated both in Ontario.

  • I am very protective of my husband, children and friends.

  • I married my second husband in 2008 and he has been my biggest champion. Life would not be as much fun without him.

  • I love to laugh!

  • I believe we all have a passion in life; for some of us it is apparent from the beginning, others like myself, it needs to be nurtured; we need to believe in ourselves, and have the confidence to leap forward in spite of obstacles and setbacks.

  • ‘The early bird gets the worm,’ but worms are gross – mornings are a form of cruel and unusual punishment.

  • I don’t read books, but for some reason my wife asks me for words when she’s doing crossword puzzles.

  • I purposely fill in her crossword puzzles in ink with incorrect words that fit.

  • I play the drums.

  • When I play RUSH on my music system, the neighbourhood listens along with me.

  • I am a retired ECHL goalie, taught at adult hockey schools and played adult tournaments until 2016.
