Hi everyone, I have arrived in Canada.  I am now 5 hours behind everyone in the UK in time.

I managed to find a hotel near Heathrow T5 for 45 quid last night which wasn't too bad so actually got a desperately needed good nights asleep.  Was really weird being back in the UK, I actually felt really unsettled as I was missing Cape Town so I was relieved to fly out again today.  Flight over today went smoothly, have to say long haul BA compared to Emirates is not so good. 

I sat next to 2 guys from Manchester, a father and son on holiday, and they were really nice.  They were so nice in fact that they carried my back pack for me on the way out of the airport and shared a taxi with me into town as their hotel is fairly close to my hostel so I got a $62 taxi ride to my hostel door for $20.  They told me that the Eagles are playing here on Tuesday and I would love to go but I have just checked out the tickets and the cheapest one's are around 50 Stirling so it's out of my budget which is a bummer.

Not done much tonight.  Just had a wander around the area around the hostel.  It is 28 degrees here today and it's still daylight at 8pm so all good!  Makes a change from Cape Town where it was dark at 6pm.

Going to plan my next few days now and will update again in a few days.
