Dude! Hahaha good moments and bad moments eh? =) Wow. The Chinese family must have been hilarious! In a kind of upsetting way. Glad reindeer was good- put that on my list of meats to eat. =)

So Great
Hi Julie...so great to hear about your day! I love it! I feel like I'm on the journey with you and I can image everything you're doing. I'm travelling through you this summer! Can't wait to read the next one. Love Jan x

interesting
Hi, it is very interesting to read about your Norway trip, I must tell you I just came back from vacation to Canada, I was driving around in the Rocky Mountains for 2 weeks with my sons. I was there 2 years ago too, I just love the place. I live in Lillehammer, I read you will be visiting here as well. Bergen is a very nice town too, also one of my favourite places. I am glad you got so nice weather here, not always like that. In Calgary and Banff we had snow in end of may, you can see some pics here http://picasaweb.google.com/oysesp/Canada2010# Wish you a nice trip!

Lithuania
Did you want me to contact Valdus about putting you up? Not sure what their plans are but I can always see if they are around. Keep in mind they are in their 70's so there won't be any late night parties but he sure has a stock of vodka.

wait until you get to Sweden
don't know if you plan on seeing Sweden but you have got to check out the toilets at the airport. They are on pedestals.

Beautiful Scenery
Wow, what a beautiful country. I'm glad you're enjoying your trip. And it's nice to know travellers look out for each other. So, have you learned any good opera songs yet? Or Oprah songs? That's too funny.

I enjoyed your Oslo post! The statues in the "circle of life" sound really interesting. Keep having fun, and enjoy Flam! Heather dirty-hippies.blogspot.com

I don't think I could have taken another piece of shark either if it were offered - I feel your pain haha. I remember Vidar - didn't know he was from Norway though, cool!
20th June 2010

It's totally dejection in that statue haha - I remember seeing it last time and literally lol'ing, so I had to go back for another chuckle. Love you too - thanks, you know I will!

Iceland
Hi Julie, I'm impressed as well that you have been able to tell us so many stories already! I am looking forward to the next one already. Take care!

Dried fish
Julie I've tried Vietnamese dried fish (not sure what the type was) and didn't like it; just as you mentioned the smell was very ammonia-like. The taste very salty. I politely declined after I had a piece as the hosts at that time suggested I'd have more. Do you remember our friend Vidar from Norway? We tried to serve him fish when he was staying in Ottawa and he would shake his head and tell us that he was near traumatized having had to eat too much fish when he was younger! Great stories!

So happy you had a good time! BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA THE LONELY STATUE DUDE! That's totally my sad stance. =D Also- Muu. Hilarious. Please give me time to save up for Iceland, but I definitely wanna go with you. =) Please continue to chill out and have a great time. Love you.

Thanks everyone
Mom: We should totally get one - I'm sure Balou wouldn't mind sharing his pillow haha. Tante Louise + Dingbat: Merci! Ben oui - je telecharge mes photos chaque nuit puisque j'en prend tellement qu'apres un couple de jours ma carte est presque pleine anyway lol. Mr P: I know, right? It's fun because I've brought Bear Hug shirts as my pjs - they're a great conversation piece!
19th June 2010

Thanks Mom! It only took me, what, two years? Haha. And I'm so fearless - yummm. Actually, if we're going to talk weird food, those cheese flavoured meal worms were the weirdest things I've ever had.

That's my girl!
Mmmmm, shark! Once you've tasted crickets, there's no stopping you! Sounds like a fabulous place and I can so picture you in the Blue Lagoon, relaxing....finally! You deserve it. Enjoy.

Cool
Sure glad you made it there safely - I am sure you will have a good time - ENJOY !
18th June 2010

Great start!
Looks like you had a great start to your trip. It's hard to believe that one day you're in Ottawa working on Bear Hug and the next, on a horse in Iceland!! Have fun.
18th June 2010

Bon voyage
Allô, Wow, tu viens de partir et déjà tu as des photos. Je te souhaite un bon voyage mais surtout amuse-toi bien et fais attention à toi. Gros bisous, Tante Louise

Glad you're there
I'm impressed that Iceland threw a huge party in honour of your arrival! I must say, you look very much at home on a horse (no, we can't get a pony in the apartment). Have fun!

re: kid - can't live with them and can't live without them
There's no one to give us any direction or to translate. There's a few staff, but as soon as we show up they disappear and leave us w/ the kids, and when they are around they don't do anything to stop any of the chaos, so it doesn't really matter either way. You really do feel exhausted at the end of the day - we all nap or at least lay down in the afternoon =) I think I find it so challenging just b/c I have no experience working w/ kids this age - I've always worked w/ Gr 7 and older. I'm thinking next year I'd like to try something like this again, but in an English or French setting, so at least there can be some level of communication (either w/ the kids or the staff). It is a very rewarding experience though.
