Helene and Tim standing at the top of Victoria Peak, Hong Kong lookout

Decem­ber 2009 stand­ing at Vic­to­ria peak, Hong Kong

We recently took a break from the rat race and started a life long dream of trav­el­ing the world. We have had the good for­tune of vis­it­ing strange cor­ners of the world while piles of paper grew larger back at the office. Job cut­backs back home in Ottawa seemed like the per­fect oppor­tu­nity to take a pack­age and hit the road. So, here we are.

About Tim:
Tim Fisher rarely takes him­self seri­ously. Tim might just enjoy edit­ing pho­tos more than tak­ing them, learn­ing some­thing new every day, and a good beer.

A com­mu­ni­ca­tions pro­fes­sional by trade, Tim hasn’t always had a fun job. The strangest job Tim has ever had was crush­ing pep­per corns into the pep­pered flakes you enjoy at the din­ner table.

Places Tim would like to visit: Mount Ever­est and the Nether­lands by bicycle.

About Helene:
Helene Gros­jean is a happy go lucky gal.  She enjoys see­ing cats, drink­ing beers, and never passes up an oppor­tu­nity to pho­to­graph two dif­fer­ent species together.

A travel agent by trade, Helene has dab­bled in a few dif­fer­ent paths includ­ing man­ag­ing Dairy Queen, fix­ing cash reg­is­ters and most recently being an admin­is­tra­tive assistant.

While tak­ing a sab­bat­i­cal to travel the world, Helene hopes to per­fect her Span­ish and learn about cuisines from around the world.

Places Helene would like to visit: Egypt and Istanbul.
