Travel round up

So I am back safe and sound in the UK after my wirl wind trip around the world. this will be my last post until I save up enough to go traveling again.  So what have a learnt from my travels 1. I am very accident prone 2. no matter where you go you always meet people with a similar belief, up bringing and humour. 3. when you go to a place you need more than 24 hours to enjoy the atmosphere the sights and the food.  My favourite places Mongolia, Hong Kong and New Zealand; why because the people and atmosphere is so chilled and relaxed.  The best place for hot chocolate has to be Russia so thick your spoon stands up in the cup. Best chocolate milkshake was in Ulaanbataar.  Best food in Hong kong as to be at the Wine and Deli prawn linguini for only £6, Cheapest Disney land again Hong Kong £30 for all day entry. Best place for people with food allergies New Zealand gluten free and nut free food that taste amazing.  The countries I would recommend to people to see New Zealand followed by Hong Kong.  The other countries depend on what you want to see and get out of visiting them.  One thing I would say to quote a friend when you start travelling it makes you greedy and all you want to do it travel more and more I have already added at least another 5 countries and counting.

Toronto and Family

After leaving Vancouver I arrived in Toronto to visit family and catch a few sights.  Family number one took me to lake Ontario, The Bata Shoe museum, Science centre to see Da Vinci's inventions, and Ottawa.  Family number two took me to the ceramic museum. Family number three took me to Niagra falls at night and a winter festival with the appearance of Darth and foot soldiers.  Family number four took me to a hindu temple and CN tower. Family number five took me shopping for some much needed clothes. Families six, seven and eight were unfortunately short visits due to time and availability. Going to the exhibition of Da Vinci's invertions was great especially as there was a copy of the last supper to which a school kid pointed to Judas and said to her friend thats the one Lady Gaga sings about before breaking into Lady Gagas song worrying I think so. My trip to Toronto however was mainly to see family that I haven't seen in 15 years or so and to be entertained by all of my new nieces and nephews which I worked out is 20 of them some of which I didn't know existed. Does this make me a bad aunty probably can I remember their names no which probably means I'm not a bad aunty just a very forgetfully aunty. Managed to see most of the family will just have to come back as they told me in the summer when the weather is better.  Right now I am just looking out of the window and it is snowing and wondering if my flight will be leaving tomorrow for home.  Aaahhhh home my own bed and not living out of a backpack.
