Dec 1, 2018 - Toronto (In Transit)

@@@@@@@ KAPOORS ON THE ROAD Unfortunately, we arrived in Toronto at Terminal One on Austrian Airlines and departed from the same terminal on Air Canada. In between we had a 6-hour lay over. We weren’t at all concerned when we booked the tickets because we had access to the business class lounges and thought for sure we would be comfortable. We checked out the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge first and though it was spacious, the furniture looked like it was on its last legs. The leather on the seats was split on many of the chairs, and the...

Nov 14, 2018 - Panama bound

We started early. Somehow when travelling the night before we fly neither of us sleeps well as we are worried that we will miss our flight. We were pretty much ready to go by 4 am. The shuttle was ordered for 415. When we got down to the lobby at 4 the shuttle was ready to go sooff to the airport we went. We arrived at the airport by 415 and had to wait until 5 am for the ticket agents to show up. We found a chair where Barry could plug in and not use any battery power. At 5 am an announcement was made that the ticketing system was down...

Nov 13, 2018 - Had a great sleep

Although the hotel was less than spectacular we did sleep in until noon. This is the first time I have done that since I retired. My body obviously needed it. Thank god the restaurant next door has all day breakfast. We pretty much chilled the whole day. I never got to the Toronto office, by the time we were done breakfast it was almost 2 pm. I also had only a light coat which was far too light to be wandering around in. It was quite cool in Toronto. Because airports are so stressful given Barry’s breathing problems we decided to request...

Oct 31, 2018 - Start of a new journey

It might be a little late to start my trip journal since I have left Japan in April, but later than never! I will record my previous trips some other time. Today, I leave Toronto for Calgary, as my first stop of my two-week trip. It was nice working in Toronto and I already miss all my friends I made here. But with the adventure awaiting, how can I stay? So here I go with my heavy suitcase!

Jul 2, 2018 - Pingu goes to Bell Island

We got up in time to grab some complimentary breakfast but the dining room was full so we took it back to our room to indulge. However, we didn't get out until past 10:30am with plans to first do a hike at the northern most point of the Avalon peninsula of NL at Back Cove. As luck would have it, I inadvertently entered a NS address into the GPS and it was almost 30min of highway driving before I realised we were going in the wrong direction (heading toward Gander!) and got off the highway slowly making our way back to the second planned...

Jul 1, 2018 - Canada Day, 2018

HAPPY CANADA DAY!!! We slept in and got off to a lazy start on our first day in Newfoundland. After taking a walk with Pingu in the neighbourhood, letting him sniff and mark every interesting spot until he was shooting blanks, I got back to find sleeping beauty stirring. We eventually got our act together and headed into town to find something open for breakfast... which was quickly turning into brunch as it was now past 1pm! As we drove past several closed establishments, the Bagel Cafe caught my eye but the menu board on the outside...

Jun 11, 2018 - Toronto and points East

June 3rd Lots of family time today and we see more brothers, nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and friends. As always it is chaotic and loud as the competition to be heard is, well, like all families and it is great to be here. Bill cooks a salmon for everyone and it was delicious. Unfortunately we forgot the camera so not one pic of the family get together. Unless there is a list we never remember everything we are supposed to take! June 4th Our goal today is to find some lightweight pants for Bill so he can cover up from the...

Jun 5, 2018 - Toronto, Ontario

June 2nd Today we enter the toxic wasteland of Toronto (Bill’s words not mine). As we get closer to the city the roads get bigger and faster the traffic increases exponentially. We run into our first navigation problem which is of our own making. We entered the wrong address into Edith (our GPS) for the conservation area we are camping at for the next week. As we travelled farther and farther east on the 401 we realised something is not right. However changing your mind in the middle lane of 12 lanes of traffic on the 401 is no small task....

May 2, 2018 - Vancouver to Toronto

I finalized arrangements with Charlotte to visit her & Paul for dinner on my way to the airport this afternoon, then checked-in on-line for my flights to Toronto & Fredericton but I don’t know why I bothered because I still had to go through the normal procedure at the airport. Fredericton is in the news because of severe flooding along the St John River so I made a few phone calls to see what the situation is like. The place where the motorhome is stored is above the floods but one of the roads there from the airport is cut by floodwaters....

Apr 4, 2018 - Day 5 and 6 - New York City

Good Morning Parents So the WiFi in the hotel packed in completely today so I was unable to do the blog. We’re currently sat at the Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller Centre seeing some slightly cloudy views of NYC and they have solid WiFi! So yesterday was a busy, busy day. We started with a trip on the NY Subway down to South Ferry toncatxh out boat to Liberty Island to see Lady Liberty herself up close and personal. Whilst it was wet we had a good run out and got some good pics of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. It was then a...

Apr 3, 2018 - Day 4 - The Big Apple

So it’s good Morning Parents this time because the WiFi in the hotel is absolutely rubbish. So yesterday has largely a travel day as we had to leave our hotel in Toronto and head to the airport to New York. After experiencing what can only be described as a terrible airport at Pearson Internatinal we got our flight to New York City and arrived just after 5pm. A short and relatively quick for New York bus ride, we got to the Edison, checked in and head straight out to Times Square! We gave the kids an hour to shop and boy did they start...

Apr 1, 2018 - Day 3 - The Niagara Falls!

Good Evening Parents So today our day began with a bus ride out to the town of Niagara Falls (after being corrected by Mr Dowd on how to spell it) where we met our tour guides who took us down to the main event - the Niagara Falls. The falls are actually separated into two, the American and Canadian Falls. The Canadian Falls were the main attraction and what most people would think of when they think of Niagara Falls. We were taken on a guided bus tour of the full length where we saw the stranded boat, the power planet and the view into...
