Sometimes myself and my friends (who do NOT wish to be included in my travel journalism) will take shopping trips around the city and have fun buying things that we think can sell for more money on eBay. Its a game.The rules are simple. We each have $50 maximum budget and one month to turn a profit. In this time we are expressly forbidden to promote our sales on our own social networks, like for example my travel blog, as the game is not about how many friends you have, but whether or not you can use your knowledge of antiques to pick the best items and turn a profit on your purchases in an online auction websites. Hence you will se no links to my eBay store or any sales here. The key to success ... read more

Travelling from Niagara Falls to Toronto is an easy 1.5 hours along the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) and Gardiner Expressway. Add 15 minutes if crossing from the Peace Bridge in Buffalo. Princess of Wales Theatre plays host to the National Theatre of Great Britain production of "War Horse". At a capacity of 2000 the sight-lines are excellent from every seat in the theatre. David and Ed Mirvish built the theatre in 1993 and showcased Miss Saigon as the first production. This theatre and the other 3 Mirvish owned theatres, along with Winter Garden, Elgin, Toronto Centre for The Arts, St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts and Four Seasons Centre built in 2006 help make Toronto the largest live theatre centre in North America after New York. If I lived in Toronto I would never want for ... read more

Je me suis reveillee a 5h, mais je suis sortie du lit a 8h... pas trop stressee! Cest qu hier, tout etait ferme parce que c etait la Family Day, une journee feriee canadienne et hier cetait en Ontario. Les restos etaient ouverts, mais pas les boutiques regulieres. Donc, je savais que je ne pouvais pas tout faire en une seule journee, surtout que ca ouvre a 11-12h, et que je veux etre au dodo a 20h pour l avion demain! Je suis donc allee au Dundas Square, avant 9h, pour voir Breakfast Television, emission que j ecoute tous les matins! Voir photo. Ensuite, direction St-Lawrence Market. Je savais que c etait ouvert, donc une valeur sure! J y ai achete tout ce qu il me fallait pour me faire a diner : pates+sauce arrabiata, fromage, ... read more

Arrivee en ville : direction Fresh Restaurant, sur Spadina. J allais a Toronto principalement pour ce resto, voila une bonne chose de faite!

Je suis ensuite passee devant une boulangerie juive ou j ai achete un verre a the en poterie tres jolie. J ai ensuite marche jusqu au Kensington Market, puis au Chinatown.

De winter voelden we al een tijd aankomen. We hadden immers al een hoop sneeuw gehad. Echter toen we in Niagara Falls aankwamen, wat voor Canadese begrippen best zuidelijk ligt. Was het boven de tien graden en superregenachtig. We hadden een motel gevonden dat goedkoper was dan elk hostel wat we tot nu toe hadden gezien in Canada. Het zat alleen wel een eindje lopen van de watervallen af. Tijdens onze wandeling naar de watervallen liepen we langs de rivier. Aan de overkant lagen wederom de Verenigde Staten. De enorme bruggen over de rivier waren dan ook goed beveiligd. Vanuit mijn ooghoek zag ik een grote vogel in een tuin aan de overkant van de weg landen. Ik dacht in eerste instantie aan een raaf, maar toen ik mijn hoofd draaide zag ik dat het een ... read more

Waiting... Just getting everything ready for our departure! The bags are packed, and waiting in the front hall, all our electronics are charged and packed, the lights are on timers, and now I'm waiting. I'll try to post at least every couple of days, but the goal is to post at least one picture and one short paragraph per day for our trip. The first leg of the trip is a 7.5h flight to Paris, France. We're going to hang out there for about 8 hours, then head back to the airport for the flight to Bangkok! Wish us nice weather! cheers, Paul... read more

Hows it going fellow bloggers? Haven't been on this since my last trip in Ghana. I was dismal at keeping up blog posts. That won't be the case this time! I wanted to let you all know of a new journey I am about to begin - my trip as a Project Manager in Kenya! I get to faciliate the construction process of two health clinics in Rural Kenya and I am uber excited! I had my first training yesterday! Awesome - seems like a great group of people going on board!... read more

Dear All Greetings from… London – not quite as exciting as the places I’ve just come back from (for me at least!), but since I was sightseeing and doing stuff pretty much up to the last minute of this trip, I thought I’d update on the last week of it once I’d flown back. This last week has just been great, superb even. What has made this trip so special and different from most others has been not only the sightseeing and travelling, which is usually on my travel agenda, but the people I have met and who have welcomed me into their homes along the way. Without going too soppy on y’all, it has truly been a trip about love, friendship and family, and I feel honoured to have spent time with such great people ... read more

Well, after more than a year of mulling over the idea, I have finally decided to take the plunge and create an on-line travelogue. I am not the most travelled person by any stretch, but I think that makes a travelogue all the more essential - to capture those venturing moments whenever the opportunity arises. As I've said, more than a year has transpired while I've been lackadaisically tossing over the idea of starting a TravelBlog account. It would be a shame to have to omit some of the travels that have occurred over that I am, a bit awkwardly commencing this blog retroactively to cover the travels taken from early 2010 and onward. Hopefully, I will be able to get caught up to stem the backlog as soon as possible.... read more
