I managed to count the number of carriages and it was 100!! We drove through Kamploops and on to Highway 1. We decided to stop at a small town called Lytton.

When the food eventually came it was great but we did have to wait over an hour for it. Tomorrow we go to Vancouver where we plan to stay for a couple of days. I will add
