Well we survived our final days in Toronto and managed to fit quite alot in.
We went on the hop-on hop-off tour of the city which was nice although typically I did get sunburnt - nothing new there!
Then on Friday we went a bit posh and headed to the CN Tower(the tallest free-standing structure in the world!!) for lunch in the revolving restaurant which was really cool as the food was great and the views amazing.
Then we had mini freak attacks when we tried to step onto the glass floor on the observatory level which is 115 storeys above the very visible ground below. We managed to step onto it eventually but not for very long - we're such chickens really but we have photos to prove it!
After that we headed back to the house where there was a rock n' roll style bbq being hosted by Mattheu one of the housemates. The bbq was excellent fun and I had my first (and quite possibly last) mojito. After the bbq ended we all headed into town to catch a gig as part of the big music festival called North by NorthEast. We all rolled home eventually and just about made it to bed in one piece.
The next morning was painful to say the least as we had to get up and pick up the rental car before heading to Brighton. We ended up getting a huge SUV instead of the little car we had ordered so I had tonnes of fun negotiating the car park before hitting the streets of toronto. Thankfully the driving went well and we made it to the venue in time to take a few naps in the back of the car (classy we are!) before hitting the reception. The wedding reception was fantastic craic and the bride and groom looked fabulous (see photo) as did the entire wedding party. The reception ended and we all headed to Moms house (Mom being the groom Jeremy's mother) where we were greeted by several pets and a huge 3/4 wolf and the friendliest and most welcoming family I have ever met considering to most of them we were total strangers!
We hit the road early the next morning to get back and cos we made it back so early we decided to take another trip as we had the car for the rest of the day. Niagara was chosen as the destination. We swung by the house to pick up Wayne and headed off. The Falls looked fab as it was a really nice and clear day. We did the Journey behind the Falls which was really cool as you got to feel the power of the falls from little lookouts from within a tunnel which travels behind them.
Well thats pretty much it from our Toronto leg. We'd like to say a huge thanks to all those in Waynes house (Matt, Raphi, Amber and Amanda) for putting up with us for the week and showing us a great time. Vancouver has only just begun so stay tuned for the next update to find out more!
