    Vicoria nach Richmond (Vancouver)

    September 14 in Canada

    nachdem ich jetzt zwei Tage mich mit einer kleine Grippe herumschlagen musste, ging es heute nach Richmond. Von Victoria aus waren es nur gut 30 Minuten zu fahren auf die Fähre.

    Diese Überfahrt dauerte knapp 1.30 Stunden. Dabei sahen wir nochmals Wale, diesmal Orkas. Es war ein junger Waal, der zweimal hintereinander aus dem Wasser schoß. Welch ein Anblick

    Dieses mal klappte es mit der Übernachtungsbuchung nicht so wie gedacht. Zuerst bekamen wir das falsche Haus, dann das falsche Zimmer.

    Nachmittags suchten wir noch unseren Händler vor Ort auf. Jetzt ist es fix, mit den Motorrädern, welche wir hierlassen.

    CNE Messe Toronto

    August 30, 2016 in Canada

    Nach dem CN-Tower waren wir noch auf der Messe, die aktuell in Toronto stattfindet. Diese ist wohl einmal im Jahr, drei Wochen lang. Auch hier ist alles ein bisschen größer aufgezogen als man es so kennt.
    Die Messe hatte kein bestimmtes Thema sondern es ging scheinbar einfach darum alles mögliche anzubieten, hauptsache VIEL und GROß (man merkt: Das zieht sich wie eine rote Linie durch unseren Trip, ich könnte ihn auch so nennen).
    Vor den ganzen Hallen erinnerte es stark an einen riesen Jahrmarkt mit allen möglichen Achterbahnen, Ständen und Fressbuden (hier kann man das ruhig so nennen, teilweise sehr eklig was die Leute hier so alles essen). In der anliegenden Eissporthalle der Hockeymannschaft wurden dann immer Events geboten. Wir haben beispielsweise die Olympische Bronzemedaillen-Siegerin im Eiskunstlauf gesehen. Kein must-see für uns, aber nimmt man dann doch mit.
    Zu unserem Bedauern (zumindest dem der Jungs) war das Football-Stadion zu dieser Zeit nicht begehbar aber trotzdem auch von außen sehr impressive.

    Toronto, CAN

    August 31, 2017 in Canada

    Vor genau EINEM Jahr sind wir von zuhause abgereist!

    Wir können nicht glauben wie schnell die Zeit verging. Wir sind so unglaublich dankbar und glücklich, dass wir die Möglichkeit haben so eine große Reise gemeinsam machen zu können. Mit einem strahlenden Gesicht denken wir an die letzten 12 Monate mit all unseren Erlebnissen zurück. Dennoch strahlen unsere Gesichter genauso, wenn wir an das schöne Ländle denken und an all die Verwandten und Freunde, die wir bald wieder sehen werden.

    Wir freuen uns so riesig auf euch ALLE!!! Bis bald!

    Warriors Day

    August 20, 2016 in Canada

    Stepping off the streetcar it was evident we were in the right place from the number of uniforms in sight, and number of pipe and drum bands that could be heard practising. As the parade was in the same place as the Canadian National Exhibition, which began yesterday, we were unsure where the Warriors Day parade would be. In asking the very helpful desk, we were presented with free tickets. This turned out to be an incredibly nice gesture as it saved us the cost of entry to the whole exhibition, which we didn't realise at the time.

    We seated up for the parade and watched a huge, hour long procession of cars, tanks, veterans and bands from all over Canada and the US too. The number of pipe and drum bands was unbelieveable, with more bagpipes on display than I've ever seen in Scotland!

    Afterwards, we explored the rest of the CNE - it was like a county show but on a much bigger scale. Stalls, displays, livestock and fairground rides all spread over a huge exhibition area. We watched a 'superdogs' show of dogs and trainers, and then hoped to watch some acrobatics but it was sadly full. There was stall after stall selling goods from almost every country around the world, from first aid supplies to hot tubs and boats.

    Being back in Toronto, we were reacquainted with the blinding heat - dry, but inescapable - and by mid afternoon we'd exhausted the show and headed out for food. Being mercifully back in the land of Tim Horton's (and away from Dunkin' Donuts!) a frozen lemonade was in order.

    Dinner was a pleasant find. We went to Blaze Pizza which gave us an opportunity to 'build your own' pizza - think of a Subway counter but for pizza toppings. As many as you wanted for just $10.45 - more fun than it should have been and a cracking dinner.

    Now to pack and prepare for a week of canoeing in Algonquin.

    London to Toronto

    July 24 in Canada

    Cab picked us up just before 10 and we were through check in and in the lounge kist before 11. Had some breakfast snacks and then headed to board plane. Flight was a little late leaving and landing the other end but smooth. I got a not of sleep, the others watched movies for the journey.

    Toronto aorport was chaotic, had ro use automatic machines to read passport deatils, but then join big queue to show the machine receipt to a real person, with the queue snaking through other aito machines so was micture of those who had receipts and those who were getting them and just joining the queue randomly.

    Once through this there was a further queu into the baggae reclaim with the receipt being shown to another poerson. The baggage carousles couldn't cope with the number of flights arriving and tehre were more than one on each. Ed heard an announcement that some of the BA flight bags were stajced on the floot betyween 2 carousels and we found two of ours there. The other two were on the carousel. YTook just over an hour to get the the taxi queue, which took about 10 minutes to get us into a taxi.

    Ed, Sam and Tashjwere feeling very tired and a little ill and the taxiwas hot whcih didnt help. The driver was determoned, often driving ionto the on slup roadf to be able to jump a few hundred yeards ahead when he rejoined the main carriageway. Took about 49 minutes to the Harboir Castle hotel. We checked in, 2 rooms close together on floor 15.

    I had reserved Harbour 60 for 7pm, but Sam and Ed were too tired and not hungry so Tash and I went. It was quite a grand place with oak panneling etc and majored on steacks. The waiter was bvery friendly and described the dtaeks to us. The smalest was a 10oz fillet. We normally have a 6oz at teh Popes Eye. Tash ahd this and I ha the New York strip just to try something different, This was 16oz!. We resisted much of the bread and appetizers that came. The steaks were huge and we had ginger and teriyaki Brussels Spouts and chips as well. Far too much food but all really good. Tash finished her styeak and some of mine. I left some and we had the food boxed up to take away 0 everyone who left seemed to have a bag with boxed food in it.

    Coudln't resist desserts, Tash jad campfire Smores, I had ice cream. Hers came with little pan of flaming coals to toast the marshmallows on 0 very goof fun. Food was great all roudn.

    Got back to room about 915, Sam and Ed wwre asleoo, we soon joined them.
