Partir une semaine en famille… en avion

Partir une semaine en famille… en avion

Un projet que je chérissais depuis plusieurs années s’est réalisé à l’été 2019.

For a second year in a row, I had the pleasure of joining a friend of mine for a long cross country flight from Ottawa (Ontario, Canada) to Oshkosh (Wisconsin, US) in July 2016.
