Quoting -reece-

whos got a cure to stop the guy in one of the other bunk beds from snoring besides putting a pillow over his head.

Put a pacifier in his mouth? You know, the kind that babies suck...

Still having jetlag? Aww.

Hey Mr Smooth, good to hear you got over the pond safely and that you're already having fun by not getting any sleep cus of the fat snoring geezer in the next bunk! (is he fat or did i just make that up?)

- solution to stop him snoring as you're still jet lagged and you aint gettin no sleep as it is, what you can do is, shout at him really loudly , make abrubt noises or make out as though the Chinese monsters are attacking you (get good tips off Isa for this)

Or

You could just get ear plugs (the soft ones for babies) or cotton wool and stuff it in your ears.

send pictures and keep us posted!

Arancia ;)

Hey Reece,

Glad your trip is finally underway!

How do you access the internet. I see you have a laptop with you, but how do you get online? Did you set up an account ahead of time and just use phoneline, or what?

I would also think with 3 people to split the cost of hotel rooms that you should be able to avoid the group hostel scene.

When are you leaving Vancouver? and Where is next?

hi jeff,
my mates got a laptop but i dont get a chance to use it so im paying to use the hostel pc's instead.as for him using his laptop i think all he does is plug in the cable from the wall they have and its up and running.so many people here seem to be using them.
i did ask him to put my photos on his laptop but he hasnt said anything.
we are in vancouver till tuesday then off to whistler for 2 days.i think canada is going to be rushed abit to quick for my liking and it will just end up constant driving.

Hey Bubba!!

You are now (definitely) removed from the designated driver's list!!!!! (I knew I should have bet big on that one! )

Sounds like you are having one hell of a good time! Oh, and if you are going from hostel to hotel - quite a few hotels will have a free internet "center" for their patrons - as long as you are a paying guest.

Let us know when those pics are up!

Also sounds like those pre-travel jitters have taken a different route than you! ;)

they didnt have free internet access in the hostel isa and now we are in whistler in a hotel wahay.its fantastic here although i had to leave the aussie lady back in vancouver.the interner access in the hostel was $1 for 15 minutes but here in the hotel its $1 for 10 minutes.
Im trying to catch up on my blog by rewriting it again but after getting in at 3.30am last night and only 3 hours sleep im getting abit behind.
Ive got 2 womens phone numbers already and we met 2 guys on sunday from canada who were fantastic and we spend most of the day with.They even gave us a lift from grouse mountain to the vancouver hostel.
The people have been fantastic and really nice.
