Don’t Stop Me Now…

Because I really am having such a good time. You could even say I’m having a ball ;-).

Canada is wonderful, y’all, and my blog buddies have been such fun to hang out with, whether it’s Hallowe’ening with Christy; pranking calling with Christy, Scott and Alex (hehe, sorry Wes! We love ya really!); going ‘Behind the Falls’ with Ashley (and demonstrating what a true wuss I am by running out of a ‘haunted house’ after thirty seconds); doing the Montreal thang with Bee. They have all been so generous with their time and banter, adding yet more fun to an already fun visit! Merci beaucoup!

Toronto is amazing. Big, urban, and the easiest city in the world to navigate (once I got the hang of the whole streetcar thing, eh?). Niagara is one-part staggering natural beauty, one-part tack-o-rama (it was like they were playing my song). Montreal is the most European of the places I’ve seen, and has kick ass shopping and dining – I’ve managed to double in size *and* double my overdraft in my three days there.

Only a couple of days left now – today it’s the CN Tower and a Hippo tour (no, I haven’t got that lardy, it’s a tour like the Duck tours in London!), tomorrow I might go out to the islands (in a boat! Wee!) and I’m hitting the town with the lovely Christy (and Becca T! OMG, Becca T!), and then Saturday ? Shopping and then booking it back to the delights of the UK…

Man, the come-down is going to suck. But with Christmas and a jaunt to Forres next month (oh yeah, happy November, all!) I should stay reasonably perky. And if not, hey, work’s going to be so manic for the next six weeks, I plain won’t have time to be blue!

Love, as always,

    I’m baffled as to how you can be so enthralled by Toronto. Kind of makes me wonder where you come from and what it must be like.I’ve had plenty of family visit Toronto and none of them had such wonderful things to say. They liked it, but they weren’t so enthusiastic. And the place they come from, crappy little town in southern Italy.Oh well. I’m glad you like our little burg and have so many nice things to say about it.

    I’m glad that you love me and my city so much! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope that you had a great day at the CN Tower and on the Hippo tour.Yah, it soooo sucks when vacations are over. I even find that it sucks when other people’s vacations are over because when people are vacationing here, I kind of feel like I’m on vacation too. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ahem. At the risk of offending those from Turrannah, you have not been to CANADA. You have been to Upper Canada.There is still the maritimes, the praires, the rockies and the west coast and pacific rainforest to see.This has been a public service announcement for the Government of Canada brought to you by a Vancouverite.xxpinks
