It was so nice to get home for a couple of weeks and back to some kind of "normality", and see our fabulous families,but it was so cold...ive picked up a stinker of a cold, and its really nice to get back on the road again........

We arrived after a really nice flight from London on Thursday Evening, we were upgraded on the flight which was just fantastic...nice comfy seats and good inflight entertainment.
We took a taxi to our hostel, which is situated in the trendy Kensington Market area..a lot like Camden in London. The hostel is ok, but its very basic and to be honest we had a lot better in places we stayed in Africa!! But it will do...its centrally located, we have cable tv for the cold evenings and the internet is free.

Yesterday we wandered towards downtown, through Kensington Market and the facinating Chinatown, once in Downtown we walked Canadas version of the Walk Of Fame and I (Ali) posed for a pic next to Bryan Adams star and signature! Then we went and wandered the shops of the huge Eaton Centre, and Torontos underground shopping centre called PATH.
We passed by the entertainment and financial districts, and onto the stunning old city hall, where we watched the ice skaters skate on the rink under the Freedom Arches.

Today we went up the CN Tower...the views from the top were just spectacular, looking over Lake Ontario, the city and the Harbour Islands....last time I went up the CN Tower it was foggy so I couldnt see a thing and the glass floor wasnt exciting because you couldnt see through it because of the fog! But today, it was as clear as anything...and yes we both layed and stood on the high glass floor.

Tommorow morning we are taking a bus out to Niagara Falls for a few days, we booked the tickets today which was straightforward and easy and tommorow we will be on that bus....CANT WAIT!

Love, hugs and kisses to you all.........

Ali and Matt
