Homestay in MagnetawanNovember 15, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 4 °C
After spending a week in Toronto it was time for me to move to the countryside. So I did a homestay for three weeks at Philip and Louise place. They live three hours north of Toronto in a cottage at the lake. Unfortunately I hadn't the opportunity to meet Louise cause she was in Edmonton visiting their son and grand children. So for most of the time it was just Philip, me and their cat. We heated the cottage with firewood and got our drinking water from a spring water place close by. When it's -40°C the water is still running there and it tasted so good.
For one week we got company from Tina a funny chinese girl. And for one weekend a former helper Yasaman from Iran studying in Toronto came up for visit with her friends Yasaman and Nick. We got the new bungalow painted and most of the electricity done. One afternoon Philip took us out for Bowling what was totally fun. They play it with just 5 pins and the small balls. After the game we went to the Schnitzelhouse an Austrian restaurant. The portions were huge and last for another or even two more meals. It was like having three Schnitzel on your plate 😅
I had a great time in the countryside and learned a lot from Philip. If I have time I'll go back to visit them next year again.Read more
