Canadia

I've noticed over the several last years I've become less and less excitable (guess that is part of being a boring old grown-up).

Could say I miss times when a trip somewhere or meeting somebody would make me all giddy and jumpy, butterflies-in-stomach sort of feeling. Don't get that much anymore, sadly.

One nice exception that has come about recently is our trip to Canada at the end of August. Seeing friends across the whole country, west to east, over three weeks, until halfway through September. Admittedly, I haven't been this excited for a trip for a while.

Firstly, we're stopping in Vancouver for a little over a week. The first city I've ever visited in Canada, it's definitely a special place for me. It will be great seeing my friends there, haven't had the chance to meet up since 2014.

Same goes for Calgary, the next stop on our route, and then on Sept 10th we head for Montreal (via Winnipeg), which will be the first ever trip to Eastern Canada. And then to round it all off, a day in Toronto before takeoff back home.

Buzzy is already buzzing about the trip, it being his first proper excursion into beautiful Canada. Got all of our travel papers printed off, just packing up next week and we're ready to fly away. Butterflies in my stomach are hopefully a positive sign of things to come. Can't wait for this trip.

Ooh, finestkind! Definitely take what photos you can, Montreal especially - I've never been, but it sounds like the kind of city I could really enjoy, not least (surprise!) for the food. =:9

Will you be flying, or taking the trans-Canada railway?

And that's not a bad amount of time to be allowing, either! Obviously, it'd be easy to spend weeks in any or all of the places, but to at least get some of the feel of the places, that should be pretty good. ^_^ Don't suppose you're meeting up with momentrabbit? I'm not sure if you've encountered each other; they're over Toronto-way somewhere.

If you can update along the way, even better. ^_^
I'll be snapping pics all over the place, especially in Montreal, seeing that I've never been before. I'll post some better ones too. To be honest, should get a Picasa account or something to store and share all the pics much easier.

We're flying between cities mostly, with the exception of Montreal-Toronto, which we'll cover by train. I daren't imagine how much a trans-Canadian train journey would cost XD

Afraid I don't know him but we're seeing friends pretty much in each city we're stopping by, I think with the exception of Toronto. But hope that changes too :D
