After many months without seeing Craig and my family, I was in serious need of a fix. While I will be heading back to Malaysia in October, I am currently in my home province of Quebec, just in time to see the thick carpet of maple trees start to change colours. Home, for as long as I can remember, is in a small, lush valley nestled into the mountains at the Vermont border. It isn't where I went to school, or spent most of my time, but it was a weekend cottage as a child and a magical escape from the city when I was working as a lawyer. In 17 months of travel and years of living abroad, I can safely say that nowhere on earth sets me so instantly, wholeheartedly at ease.
