Wow! I can't believe it has been so long since I updated the website! I guess I have been concentrating on Facebook and Instagram! I am also a LITTLE scared to tell you .. but we have been playing on TikTok as well! You can find us anywhere at tripndaisy777 .
Well, we have not yet made it driving across the country! In 2019 we did get to BC but we had to fly... Trip was not yet up to the journey, but after being ill so long, it was good to be with family. As much as we felt a bit guilty flying out west, I am grateful we could in 2019 since the pandemic hit in 2020 and we have not been able to see family for so long!
Much has happened, good and bad, but one thing we have learned in the past 19 months is...
We took about a month, over a few trips to travel along the Acadian coast of New Brunswick - it is stunning! I can't believe it was our first time there. We also had the opportunity to travel the Gaspe in Quebec. What an amazing privilege! Truly some of the most beautiful coastlines in our country! The people were wonderful and we can't wait to do it again someday!
In Sept, 2021, we traveled to Ontario (past Toronto) to see both of Trip's kids and all the grandkids who got together for his 80th birthday! Wow! I know he is 80 but that cute little guy I fell in love with will always be to me! What an incredible experience! A year ago we wondered if it would ever be possible again to travel again.
One BIG update is... as much as we loved making crafts and offering them for sale... We are adjusting our focus. We have ALL learned that we each need to find our own joy and what is bringing us joy - is meeting all of you. Traveling along and seeing people honk and wave as they pass us (yes, everyone passes us when towing!) The smiles and warm words when we stop at gas stations and campgrounds. The people who come up to us and tell them "how happy seeing the hippie hangout" made them. THIS HAS MADE IT ALL WORTHWHILE!
So, we still have lots of crafts, etc. and Trip will still paint when the spirit hits him, and he will always write, he loves to share his stories and they will always be available. I, Daisy, have gone back to school (part time to complete my university degree - and MAN it is much harder to learn at 55 than 25!) We simply want to come out, meet you, share stories and smiles and of course continue to ...
SPREAD THE LOVE!
Because if we have learned ANYTHING in the past year and half, it is that the world needs MORE love!
Peace and love, Daisy

Trip 'N Daisy
Follow our blog as we tramp around the country in our revamped old trailer. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Trip has been to every province, territory, etc in the country. Daisy has been to all but the northern territories and provinces. Together, they have driven across Canada in 2010 with two kids and lots of breakdowns and stories! Most recently they traveled to Newfoundland, Labrador and Nova Scotia. Watch for more stories to come! Canada - we love it!
