Hey reece, congrats with the plan! It sounds all too exciting (envy, envy! hehehe). I heard that you were making a pit stop at the Isa's...that's awesome. Hey, I dont see Florida in your plans...what's up with that? Actually, I dont blame you. You have nothing but heat, beaches and more heat here. Actually, keep me posted when you will be in New York. I go there very often, almost every other month so I can show you around and give you the best tour in town.

It looks like you will be in Montreal in July...can you hang out for a couple of months there? We have the TP meeting in September...

Hey Reece,

How are you planning to stay in shape during your travels? I assume you're leaving "your baby" at home.

By the way, what day do you leave? And where in NA do you arrive?

Yes my baby is being hidden and locked in the loft with a blanket over her.Im taking my running shoes and running shorts and will get up an hour or so early to go for a run and then do some sit ups and press ups morning and night.

i leave on thursday 9th and the flight leaves london heathrow at 17:10 and i get to vancouver at 18:35

Thanks Anne.
Yeah i will be having a beer stop at Isa's and cant wait to meet Mr & Mrs Isa.Florida is abit out of the way for us with the other places we plan on going.Should be in new york around 20th july at a rough guess.
Yeah we will be in montreal in july around my birthday on the 10th july or maybe earlier and spending 2 months there is to long for us.
we are hopefully following the good weather as we go and leaving things for an extra 2 months means it will be getting colder towards the end of the trip.And we are leaving to go to auckland in october.

Hey reece my bro in chile.Maybe you could catch up with him if you go there next year and he is still there!!!He is a snowboarder!So if you fancy a ski he could let you know best place to go

thats fantastic jo and yeah that would be great.how long is he out there for?

57. Posted by salsachick (Inactive 77 posts) 11y

He could be in s. america for a while.His work could keep him there for a bit.But if he does move on I'm sure if you needed any info on skiing I could find out for you!
Snowboarding is his passion...so I'm sure he will know the best slopes!!

Hey reece,

I didn't realize you were starting out West. After the 3 months, where do you leave NA from to return to the UK?

By the way, who do you think will do most of the driving? Do you think all 3 of you or do you think one of you will do most of the driving?

What kind of car are you guys renting?

And REMEMBER to drive on the RIGHT side!!!

And try not to get run over when crossing the street. Maybe you've had more practice in the European countries, but whenever I've been in the countries that drive on the left side, I usually have a few close calls when I start out into the street while looking the wrong way for the cars.

Yea, it sounds like a FUN time to be up there. I'm gonna look into it!

I enetered this one late (as always, lol)...but yeah...summer is the best time in Montreal! The festivals are great and, like Tina, I love the open-air Jazz shows at the Jazz Fest. It's so great to lounge after work, or before work (depending what time you're on the clock) with a few friends and some drinks. It's coming up soon...can't wait!

As for the Just For Laughs comedy fest, I've been to a few indoor shows, but haven't taken part in any of the free outdoor activities yet. It's on my to-do list for the summer! :)
