I Made it!!!

Finally arrived in Montreal

sunny 30 °C

After (what seems like months and months of planning) it's finally here and I have arrived in Montreal Canada.

Flight was pretty uneventful and I am settling in to my role of travelling for the next 250 odd days.

What have I discovered so far, they have red fire hydrants here, everything is in French first then English in the small print, the city is very large, and the people seem happy, bubbly and very friendly.

I can understand now when people say it has a european vibe to it, (as it does), but it's a bit more than that.

Will have more news in the coming days and weeks

Look forward to reading your comments

1 Week Till Blast Off!!!

Blog Entry.....1


1 Week to go and as I write this I am getting that exciting feeling again (haven't felt that for a couple of weeks since all the work and organising has been taking up most of my time), flat is gone (I scrubbed it and now it's looking super clean).

Living back in on Canvey now for another week, it's only 45 mins from London but even here I'd forgotten how much quieter it is here compared to the city.

Got my pocket french dictionary ("Le car est parti sans moi" - The coach has left without me!!!) so I should be set for any eventuality that occurs.

Going back through the itinerary I hit Montreal first and plan on staying for a short while to check out the city and surrounding areas before moving further into the wilderness.

Until next time when I should have more info and excitement to include
