I made it back (mostly) in one piece from Toronto Canada!
So 4 years ago at the FanExpo Canada show I met this lovely girl Caitlyn, we became friends, and I invited her and her sister Juliet to help me out at the convention last year; this
year they invited me to stay at their lakehouse before the show for a few days - how could I refuse an offer like that!?
I travel a lot, but an actual few days holiday
- What a treat!
Although there wasn't toooo much time for chilling, as Cait and her family had many high-octane plans for me! Including 'tubing' which involves sitting on a giant rubber ring pulled by a speedboat! And ATV driving, which involves just as much clinging on for dear life...
The jet-lag got me up early each morning, so I went and sat on the docks to read my kindle (it's new and I am in love with it) ~~What a way to start the day, (reading about Cognitive Behavior Therapy implementation
The trip was just what I needed, some time to spend chilling out, and some wonderful people to do it with.
I can't think of a better way to drink-in Canadan beauty than by the waterside!
I did have a go at waterskiing too: I didn't get up, but I did manage to partially tear my hamstring, and am still walking funny (I'm trying to pretend it's my London swagger) but I'll be okay, seeing a physiotherapist tomorrow
Who needs to see a Moose when you can see stars like this?
All too soon it was time to go... So we built a campfire. And I lost my smore-ginity.
Without a car it's really hard to get out and explore Canada, so the last few years I've just roamed the concrete of Toronto, so I finally feel like I've seen some of the 'real' Canada. I'm going home with so many amazing memories, from such a kind and beautiful family, honored they opened their homes and hearts to me. So Caitlyn, Juliet, Jeffery, Randy and MaryAnn - Thank You!
I'll leave you with a sweet thought from MaryAnn, Caits mother said, about when I accepted their offer to stay in their cabin: "How did you know we weren't murderers"
Sometimes you don't. You just gotta trust
And then it was time to step up to the reason I went over to Canada in the first place... - FanExpo!
The show went great ~~ my booth was busy with stories and hugs
After the show I booked into a nice hotel as a treat...
Lets just say I never thought I would post a photo of myself having a bath... until I found this bath! XD
Pretending my fizzy water is champagne
So wow, what a trip! I'm limping but very happy
Part 3 of my story is coming soon (I know I say that every time XD It's sooooon)
Peace, Love and Mooses,
