Where I stayed
Things I have learned #1:
Do not assume that you will be able to sleep on an overnight Megabus journey from New York to Toronto.
Possibly the most uncomfortable I have been in a while. I got an hours sleep in a 12 hour journey. Having The Flight of the Conchords to watch on my mp3 player saved me from insanity. (Thank you Sandra and Adam)
Also, wearing flipflops on a journey to the Great White North is possibly not a great idea. My toes were cold. Luckily the lovely people of the HI Hostel in Toronto let me check in early so I could get a few hours kips before heading off to explore the city a bit.
Tomorrow I am meeting my friend Julie for s wander round the city. Looking forward to that muchly. Tonight I am going to be an old lady and get an early night to recover from the epic travelling. The hostel here has a cafe and I believe that spaghetti is on the menu for tonight which is a bit of a godsend and means that I don't have to worry about going food shopping for a day or two.
I am trying not to think about the 3 day train journey I have to do (twice) in two weeks time. Trains are more comfy than busses right?
