This blog covers our trip around the world in 2006. We will post here with news of where we are and what we've been up to. Enjoy! Ang & Jane

Wednesday, June 7

Location: Toronto
Miles Travelled: 4021
Time Zone: GMT-5

My feet hurt!! We've been here a couple of days now and since we're never in any hurry, we haven't really used Toronto's brilliant subway system very much - we've been doing a lot of walking instead. The great side effect of this is that we have a better idea of whereabouts we are - most of the time! The bad side effect is that neither of us have used our summer shoes very much before now, so they're not very worn in. Ah well...

Jane's friend from home, Wayne, met us at the airport on Monday afternoon and we got a taxi to his place. We spent Monday evening just catching up, enjoying the warm evening - we went downtown to a Japanese restaurant where I had my very first sushi! Well, it was veggie sushi but it's better than never trying it...

Yesterday we were supposed to go to Mel and Jeremy's wedding, but due to my stupidity (what a surprise!) we never made it there... Long story short, I never checked the train or bus timetables because I had once been in Melissa's hometown and we'd gone there by train so I assumed it was as easy this time around. That'll teach me!! That time we had actually gotten the train to a completely different town, and Mel's Mum had picked us up and brought us home. There is no train to her hometown, the bus only runs there a couple of times a week, and the train we'd gotten before only runs once a day!! So a hire car is the only way...
So off we went to try and hire a car, and this is where the fates kicked in and decided it just wasn't going to happen... Our driving licences and our passports were in Wayne's house, where someone had forgotten to leave the back door unlocked for us so we couldn't get at them... As well as that, the bus on the way home was delayed due to a car being on fire outside the station, and even more of a subtle hint? The only hire place we knew of was closed all day!!

We'll definitely make it on Saturday though as we're booking a hire car tomorrow and we're leaving here first thing on Saturday morning - what are the chances we won't make it there on time for 8 o'clock??
