Dreaming of travel, reading the brochures, imagining the trip. It's hard to believe we are en route. Slowly the train pulls out of the station en route to our first destination: Toronto. Since we got to the station, the sun has broken through the clouds and shines on our departure. We pass familiar landmarks as we pull away from Montreal. I've taken this train before, but this time Toronto is only a stop on a great adventure. Both of us dreamed of travel to the Arctic before we became a couple. Now we are both about to live our dreams. Travel is so important to broaden our horizons, to understand other cultures, to see how interconnected our world is. Each trip changes us a little. And the memories sustain us throughout our lives.
