Where is the best place to hang mistletoe at Christmas? Most people would say the front doorway. I say the doorway to the kitchen, because we all know what kind of workout that place gets at this time to year!
Last year was meant to be our first Christmas together but due to previous arrangements before we met, we weren’t together on the 25th so we made the best of a bad situation and had Christmas early! There was snow on the ground and the chicken (there was only the two of us so a turkey would have just gone to waste) in the oven. We opened presents and watched the Charlie Brown Christmas Special.
We all know how many times people walk into and out of the kitchen at this time of year, so when we were decorating at the beginning of December I decided to hang the mistletoe there above the doorway. It also seemed like a good idea, as during the Canadian winter, all you usually you want to do when you’re walking in the front door is strip off your cold and wet clothes.
I’m sure a lot of people can relate to being away from loved ones at Christmas and making the best of the situation they are in. This was another one of the years of doing exactly that for me and I’ll always remember it as being one of the best (early) Christmases I’ve had.
One of the things that make a trip to a far-flung place truly memorable is getting the chance to interact with the locals and share fun moments with them. Five years ago, disdis was able to do exactly that on a trip to Zinguinchor, Senegal, and it goes without saying that it was most certainly one for the books.

I have to admit that I’ve never liked using flash in public places. In some situations it can be distracting. Like concerts, for example. Can you imagine a live music show where people decide all of a sudden to use it at the same time?

I traveled to Cartagena de Indias, Colombia in May 2015 with my twin sister. Our birthday was on the 31st, and for the last few years we've had a silent pact to try to spend our birthdays traveling as much as we could (and as long as we’re single!).
