Rocky on the Road

14 months off. Where to next?

Me, Myself and I

Hey there. I’m Shawn. I’m a mid-30s High School Drama teacher who embarked on a well-deserved year off, from August 2011 – August 2o12.

I was able to do this because of the Deferred Salary Plan my employer, York Region District School Board, has. I started the plan, referred to as a 3-over-4 (three years’ pay spread out over 4 years) in September 2008, and my leave offically began September 2011.

I love the Arts and Culture – when I travel, I try to get out to galleries, museums, and points of Historical interest. I’m a huge History buff, and love to learn as much as I can about the people and places I visit. I’m also very interested in seeing as much Theatre and Music as I can, and it was my goal on my year off to hear as much great music as I could.

Overall, it was an incredible adventure. Please enjoy the blog, and be sure to check out the video I posted below. It’s (nearly) every photo I took on my year off.

Safe Journeys
