Our two week trip to Canada was worth every penny. It may seem strange to spend half of my year’s vacation to return back home but after 9 months it’s a fantastic break to see friends and family. We lucked out some nice warm weather which helped make up for our very short British summer. Our two weeks were packed with plans bouncing around visiting as many people as possible, however we also made sure to spend some quality time with Chewy including a nice canoe trip down the Thames. It’ll probably be a while before we have plans to go back but September really is one of Ontario’s best months.

It really couldn't have gone any better, everything went just as planned and we somehow managed to get fantastic weather. We came via coach bus on Friday morning, had a lunch buffet and played 7 events throughout the afternoon. Our company got split up into 6 different teams each at one of 6 different events where we cycled after 30-45 min and they kept track of each teams score. In the end, much to our teams surprise we managed to get first and got to enjoy a classic champagne celebration! Afterwards we went back to our rooms to shower and change before dinner and a looong evening at the open bar. The next morning with everyone properly hung over we crawled back into the coach and headed back home. You'll notice it was a double decker coach which I've never been in before and eventually was very thankful to be getting out of as it ended up being known as the vomit bus. haha
It was great fun, memories I'll never forget. :)
