Extract from my online journal:-
This is my last full day in the UK. I leave for Toronto tomorrow and won't be back for one year. Someone asked me how I felt. It is like hitting the reset button on your PC. I have to make sure I've saved everything I want from this country, because theres no going back! After I press the reset button tomorrow I'll have to reboot my life in Canada. Everything i've shutdown here will have to be reopened over there.

Today I had to hand over my car keys and house keys which makes it feel more real somehow. This is really happenning. I just hope I've remembered everything I need and that I remember to have fun when I get there.

My next journal entry will be from Canada, but it may be a while before I have Internet Access. Then again, it might be tomorrow! :)

Take care everyone,
I'll speak to you all soon,
Dave.

I hope it all goes well for you Dave.

It will be hard at times but keep smiling, keep going forward and I am sure it will all work out fine.

As you say, try not to forget to have fun as well :)

Keep well and safe.

Definetly a nice day to leave the UK on. Sun shining, girls chirping. I saw him off then watched his plane leave. I eventually arrived home and then stalked him online via some fancy plane tracker.

Some pics.





Loading up his gear. 1st case was photography gear, 2nd was clothes, and the 3rd was all sorts of illegal contraband to sell to those silly Canadians :D





No turning back now.

Lift off. A tad far away for my little 28-105, but I didn't want to lug the 100-400 around.



Next stop, Toronto.

I also read your journal, it sounds to me like you have some pretty nasty critters there as well :shock:

Glad you are getting settled Dave, its a shame about the job but I agree with you, for that money you are far better holding out till something better comes along.

Good luck with the driving too :D

Interesting reading.

Sure hope you are enjoying Canada, Dave. Maybe we'll have a coffee someday at Tim Horton's!

Jewel, WHERE are you? Sounds like you're pretty close to me.

HAHAHA! Well, I used to work the night shift in a Tim Horton's here in Guelph making the best muffins in town so have to say "Tim's is best". But I also like Second Cup. I sit at one in our mall.

Did you see that programme where they ask American's questions about Canada? It was hilarious.

They thought Tim Horton was the Prime Minister. :)
They thought Toronto had a polar bear crisis.
They thought we had only just adopted the 24hr clock to move into line with the rest of North America. :D

That's so funny! I'm sitting here giggling.

I actually think I saw that programme but not sure.

Which reminds me. Anna on here sent me a photo taken in Sunderland, England of a Tim Horton's Donut stand in some mall somewhere with all the donuts and muffins but no coffee! :laugh1:

Hi Dave, enjoy Toronto! Although I come from Montreal, my parents live in Oakville now, about a 30 minute drive west of the city.

Yes, Tim's is definitely where the self-respecting Canadian drinks good coffee!

I've also done my time as a Tim's employee -- tough job! It's ALWAYS busy.

And yes, Pat's right -- there's a Tim's in the Metro Centre mall in Gateshead, but they don't sell coffee!!!!
