Mary Ann & CharlesThe travelling bug bit us a few years ago, and we decided to see a bit of the world: Nova Scotia, Canada (many times), Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, and Mexico.

In late 2016, we sold everything we did not need, packed our bags, headed to Costa Rica for six months, and returned the following year for another six months.

For three and a half years, we resided in a small Mexican fishing village between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. Then we decided there were more areas of Mexico we wanted to visit.

At the moment, between house-sitting gigs, we are checking out Ajijic in Jalisco State.



Mary Ann

My husband, amazing kids, step-kids, and five grandchildren make up my wonderful family. Even though it’s challenging to be apart from them, my husband and I have decided to embrace travelling.

Mary Ann, the travelling life

I enjoy scrabble, crossword puzzles, walks, making new friends, and books (lots of books!).

My favourite drinks of choice are wine, water, and coffee, though not always in that order.

We never dreamed of travelling. Then seven years later, we thought it was time.

Two of my accomplishments are starting and running successful publications in Ontario Canada, and five paintings of which I am very proud of.

I married my second husband in 2008, and he has been my biggest champion. Without him, life would not be as much fun.

It’s not all work and no play though. I get to hang out at the beach, read, bake some great keto recipes such as my tasty cauliflower pizza, or have fun with my husband and friends.

I love to laugh so lucky me, my husband is a comedian.

I believe that we all have a passion in life; for some of us, it is obvious from the start. For others, like myself, it needs to be nurtured. To do this, we must have confidence in our abilities and believe that we can overcome challenges and defeats.

CJ (Charles)

I am a Canadian baby-boomer-aged comedian who does not do winters; I enjoy playing the drums and tennis, laying on the beach soaking up the sun, watching the world go by, and spending my children’s inheritance.

Charles, travelling, CJCanadian baby-boomer-aged comedian who loves to make people laugh… for $$

‘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.

Playing drums is a passion of mine.

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

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

When not performing comedy, I lay on the beach, soak up the sun, and do absolutely nothing!

I love to travel and my biggest regret is that I waited so long to do it, thinking I just couldn’t afford it. I have had some crazy fun, met some amazing people, and had some scary moments such as getting locked in a shower at a campsite. For our trip to Mexico, we were able to save money by house sitting, which was something completely new to us.
