Where I stayed
Rick, Jingo & Lorna's House
I haven't seen Rick in a long time but managed to keep in touch, and haven't spent a lot of time with him in my life but we definitely got along great, and always had a laugh which hasn't changed. I met him in Rome on my very first backpacking trip, about 5 yrs ago, back in the day. We traveled together for aboot 2 weeks maybe, between Italy and Spain...then he came to visit me in t.o. when he was in the 'area' in Saskatoon (yes i know, who goes there) and that was 4 1/2 yrs ago.
So i'm staying with Rick and his two roomies, also his best friends, Jingo and Lorna, they're american and english respectively
So I have been here a week now and enjoying the comforts of a home, either though it's not mine, still enjoying as i said...and the city. I haven't ventured out too much as im trying to focus on 2 key prioriies, job and flat. Rick has shown me a few diferent parts of the city - the South Bank (where the 'beach' is, haha, its very small and fake but still good), the West End (where there's more trendier shops and bars), CBD (the city centre, shopping)...there's a big river throughout the city which has lovely paths around it and lovely parks. So Im still working on the job front and will play more later...have a few prospects but nothing definite. Hopefully something will fall into place...
Alrighty roo..there's more to come. Hopefully i'll be able to keep ya entertained (and myself for that matter) even amidst the 'normalities' of life...there's a challenge!
