    Pauline's definitely a patient traveller

    September 3, 2018 in Canada ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    So, we got to Heathrow in good time - just as well, as we only saw this morning that the flight went from T3, not T5.

    Anyway, it was a different Airbus (so, not 7 days in a row for the other - it went to Singapore instead - ours had come in from Hong Kong this morning) and the flight was beautifully smooth, up over Glasgow, Skye, Iceland, Greenland and then Canada, in sunshine all the way.

    What a pity that Pauline had someone in front who seemed hyperactive - maybe it was the 10 cups of coffee he had - and one behind whose legs were long, so he stretched them out next to her seat and took his shoes off - you can imagine.

    Very, very efficient immigration, and a quick journey to our “Vancouver Original” hotel. It’s 9 pm here, or 5 am there. Let’s see how we get on with sleeping.

    Whales seen in the Salish Sea

    September 5, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Up at the crack of dawn, and ready, checked in, for our Prince of Whales cruise across the Salish Sea, through and past the Southern Gulf Islands to Victoria, at the southern tip of Vancouver Island. And we’d hoped to get a view of whales.

    Well, we did! First, quite near to Victoria (in front of the grand houses), then, later, on the way back, we diverted along the coast of Valdes Island and wow!

    There was even another watching boat next to us, and he had a hydrophone in the water, so we heard the whales sounding to each other.

    Halloween in Canada

    October 31, 2018 in Canada ⋅ 🌧 9 °C

    Wieder angekommen in Canada wurde erstmal die neue Unterkunft bezogen. Willkommen in Ameisenhausen. ( Das wussten wir natürlich vorher nicht :D)
    Wir kauften uns für Halloween beide einen Jumpsuit, Ingo einen Yeti, ich eine Fledermaus. Wir wollten eigentlich ins SWAP gehen oder auf irgendeine Halloween Party. Aber für das Büro waren wir zu spät dran und die Schlagen vor den Clubs waren zu lange. Dafür war der Jetlag auch noch bissl in den Knochen und so machten wir einen gemütlichen Filmeabend im Bett und gingen bald schlafen :) Dafür war es schön die Dekoration und alles zu sehen und auch, das Feuerwerk. Okay die ersten Gedanken - haben wir was verpasst? Ist doch noch nicht Neujahr :D aber anscheinend ist das hier üblich... Auch die Kostüme sind weniger "gruselig", was wir mit Halloween verbinden. Sondern gibt es auch ganz normale Kostüme wie zum Beispiel ein kleines Kind mit einem Bagger um die Hüften. Also eher wie Fasching hier :DRead more
