So polite they offer a shot on meeting...another 'cause it seems like a good idea...another one for the road...and maybe ones between. At each stage "Sir" or "Mister"...Gotta be the politest folks on the planet. But I digress...explanation later. We arrived in Vancouver after 30 hours of travel from... Read Full Entry

Toronto...Here we come

Ahhh...and the saga begins!!!
It sounds like you imbibed like 20-somethings. Just a warm up for Toronto. So glad you were able to meet some of Simon's friends and visit his old haunts.

And what a way to begin Bob. Very much just a warm up as it turned out.

We loved Vancouver too.
It was where we picked up the cruise back to Oz after our trip across the Atlantic by the freighter. Very laid back after the US of A. Our hotel was in Gastown so we saw a lot of that area. Some great bars and restaurants.

Thanks John & Sylvia. Lovely part of Canada indeed. We would have needed at least another week there to have a proper look around. We went to some great restaurants as well.

Hi Dave, It is great to read your blog again, this time about your arrival in Canada. My wife was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta and myself in Toronto, so it touched a warm spot to read about our home on the other side of the world. We look forward to heading back to Canada for a couple of months in the summer. Also thank you for your kind thoughts on Canada; it touches a warm place inside! All the best and look forward to the next installment! Cheers, -Sean & Erin

Great to hear my blog touched a warm spot Sean & Erin. That was the warm up blog so more to come. We were touched by the politeness & hospitality of Canadians wherever we went so its definitely a national characteristic.

Canadian politeness
Gotta say the Canadians take politeness to another level Dave. Had to get into the blogs of our latest trip ASAP as there were so many special places, moments, tunes and grooves...let alone gotta give my version of getting the band back together!

Impressed!
I am very impressed at your selfless devotion to the Canadian "politeness" and the imbibing of so many cocktails. You wouldn't want to respond to such politeness any other way....but even when I was in my 20s that kind of dedication was difficult. Bravo to you! I am looking forward to reading part 2, Toronto I assume!

Selfless devotion to the Canadian "politeness"
It's tough when one's motivations are misunderstood Rachael. Then it lifts the spirit to have one such as you who understands perfectly. I was just being polite back. Amazing where that can lead you!

Great blog. Definitely highlighting some of our best features here in Canada, including getting people smashed. Hope you recovered from you hangover quickly to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Have a great trip.

Very funny Binns & Cheryl. What's a hangover? After a 30 hour flight you'd expect jetlag. However after the perfect cure we called the next day "a quiet day"!

Japanese are also very polite
Another people known for being polite are Japanese. Have you been to Japan? Can you compare Canadians and Japanese? /Ake

Interesting observation and scenario Ake. However the Canadian politeness to my thinking is more relaxed and natural than the more stilted Japanese politeness but I am reluctant to not appreciate both styles.
