... that shark was far away.... That night was our last night together so we went to a really cute restaurant attached to Aquarius backpackers hostel. The food was good and there was live music and pretty trees and lighting...very romantic hehehe. Claire then went to bed after having 3 hours of sleep the night before with an early bus to catch the next morning and the 3 of us went and had frozen yogurt (not as goos as Yeh! yogurt fellow montrealers). I then ...

The First Week

... Gina. They were a kind, relaxed couple in their 50's who live in a suburb just outside the city. They gave me a guest room with ensuite bathroom, and I had a wonderful weekend there.

Half Way Through my Adventure

A travel blog entry by lornathomas


... the last one I went to, it was a different instructor this time so was a bit different but still really enjoyable. After yoga I went to a local cafe to get a cup of tea and some banana bread; the banana bread was quite elaborately presented with fruit coulis and some sort of flavoured cream! The cup of tea was well needed! After that I just had anther wander around town to look at some of the shops I haven't had a chance to visit yet - it was a bit too windy to have a beach day ...
