Battle really is a great place, it's such a tiny place with so much history...

Hahaha Kala, I just travel A LOT. I'm usually broke for this reason... Every penny I make goes for travel and university tuition... I'm going to be dividing my time in Waterloo and Toronto for the next while, but I'm hoping to head out to Switzerland near the end of the summer...
