Kyla writing...

You know its time to come home when...

  • Upon arriving in the town of Pisek, you are taken by your host to see the Otava River

  • While waiting for the tram in Pilsen someone walks past you carrying a lacrosse stick

  • Your host has prepared breakfast, which includes maple syrup with a red, proud, maple leaf on the container

  • You walk past a hotel in Karlovy Vary named the Ontario Hotel

  • A South African you meet on a beer tour, upon knowing that you are Canadian, strikes up a conversation about the upcoming World Championships of Hockey, to be hosted by Canada, and you have no idea when or where that will be! Did I mention that he is from SOUTH AFRICA?


(Oh and this doesn't include the British guy walking around Turkey with a Sens T-shirt on in October. We thought we had found someone to talk to about hockey (imagine our joy) only to be seriously disappointed that the only reason he owns the shirt was because Air Canada lost his luggage last year during the playoffs and he had to outfit himself with clothing available at the airport. He also owns underwear to match the t-shirt. To boot, he doesn't even bother to try following the sport even though he is traveling the world with a Sens T-shirt - Alfie's number - and is "approached all the time by people commenting on it")
