Hello one and all. My journey began on the 11th October 2006 when myself, Chris and Richard flew from Heathrow to Toronto. Arrived in the pouring rain but things only got better and better. What a great place to start what will hopefully be a great year.
We stayed at the Global Village Backpackers which was one crazy hostel. But in a great way. It had such a great atmosphere as did the city itself. There was a bar at the hostel which stayed open till 2am but in the 4 nights we stayed there it was open later most nights. The staff were really great and always drunk which was fun.
The plans to do a lot of the tourist stuff didn't really materialize but that was due to stuff being closed and not just because we are quite lazy. Well very lazy. I did venture up the CN Tower and stand on the glass floor. Eventually. I'm not a great one with heights so took a while to get me on it. The rest of the time i just walked about the city and at night had a few drinks. Quite a few.
We met Richards step sister Helen and her husband Mike for the night. Really nice couple and a great laugh.
A city i would recommend to people to visit and someplace i would like to go backk to again.
