Home Coming Ontario

We first arrived in Canada in St. John’s Newfoundland where we got used to Canada’s funny, colourful money again and of course Tim Horton’s coffee.

We then arrived in Toronto, Ontario where my Dad and Step-Mom Doreen picked us up at the airport. It was so great to see them after a whole year.  Next we went to visit my Mom and my Step-Dad Terry who had kindly looked after our dog Echo while we’ve been on our adventure.  Echo is in great health and spirits and we can’t wait to take her home – once we get one! Thanks Mommy for looking after our “baby”.

I suspect our next and final post on our blog will be when our motorcycles arrive in Toronto which we are expecting to pick up in October 2011.  As always, thanks for reading - we will miss reporting on our adventure to you.  We’ll keep you updated on the condition of the bikes when they arrive. Stay tuned:)

Count Down to an End

As each day passes, it gets that much closer to us returning to Canada.  Over the last month, the reality has started to set in and we have both started to send our resumes out; so keeping our fingers crossed that we don’t have to wait long to pick up work.  Our last city on our Europe leg was going to be a visit to London to see the sights and that’s exactly what we did.

We were lucky to be in the city for the “One year to Go” celebration for the London 2012 Summer Olympics.  The new countdown clock and London City Hall below.  I was also very excited to see my friends who I used to work with at the Vancouver Olympics - Dave, Norm, Mike, Cam and Brie who now work for LOCOG.
