Hello! Welcome to the blog of GodzillaPin and the Ninja Turtle.

This is GodzillaPin. "Lapin" is French for rabbit.

This is the Ninja Turtle. Less ninja and more turtle.

GodzillaPin and Ninja Turtle are two young adults trying to navigate their way through life, the world, and the rather messy business of living together as a couple with very different backgrounds.

How different, one may ask.
Different like high-rise apartments and single-storey bungalows.
Different like inked-in appointments in a leather-bound organizer and pencil drafts on the back of envelopes.
Different like steam and ice.
Different like the fact that we have agreed to disagree over the origins of the story of the Tortoise and the Hare – whether it is a fable by Jean de la Fontaine (says Lapin) or Aesop (says Turtle).

We are trying to find the Path, if you will. The middle path of compromise? The path to mutual understanding? The path to happiness? Who friggin’ knows. It’s just that after four years of being travel partners, and three of cohabitation, we realize we’ve come quite a way from where we began. We also realize we still have a heck of a long way to go. In the meantime, we’re sharing plenty of laughter, tears of frustration, and many little stories that will one day serve as ammunition against age-related regret.

This blog will (try to) chronicle the adventures of GodzillaPin and Ninja Turtle as it unfolds. Come walk with us, the path is wide enough for all!

Ready. Steady. Go!

Ready. Steady. Go!

    I can’t believe I only just read this about you and ‘GodzillaPin’ (hahah!). You know, I absolutely love your fervour for life; I really hope you and ‘GP’ keep that verve alive for the rest of your lives 🙂 I’ll be coming back occasionally to read what’s going on over there, halfway across the world.

  2. Bonjour, I am happy that you enjoyed the post on the Marathon du Médoc, and thank you for stopping by my blog. I believe that you two caracters would fit right in to the fun next year. It is one melting pot of world cultures, and what unites them are the spirit, the fun, the love of wine, and costumes. Happy trails to you! Tristane
