What a fantastic hostel we are staying in and it makes up for the rat hole in toronto we were in although toronto on the whole was fantastic.
Last night while simon was gambling in the casino jill and i were sitting at the bar drinking and got talking to the barman who was very friendly.They had 5 tv's around the bar so i asked if he could put the Tour De France highlights on for me as im going mad missing it and he said 'yeah no problem'.With 5 kilometres to go another barman turned it over so our friendly barman turns to him and says 'Oi turn the back to the cycling as i have friends here watching it and he will come over and smack you'.
Ive never laughed so much and within seconds the tv was back on the Tour again.

I have to say the canadian people have been sooooooooooooooooooo friendly since we arrived although the barman was originally from italy.

Hey Bubba!!

If you decide to do the barrel trick over the Falls - don't go for the cheap barrels - they will fall apart before you get to the bottom. Go for the slightly more expensive ones so you can live to tell about it!

I think you are having way too much fun and maybe you should consider catching the next plane back across the pond. This much excitement at your age could just do you in completely!!!

Simon win enough to finance the rest of the trip????? ;)

Of course we're friendly! Have you dont the Maid of the Mist yet? If you can, try to take a wine tour of Niagara on the Lake. I hear it's quite the experience.

Italians are very friendly ppl...just dont get on the wrong side of one thats all!;)

Talking about friendly ppl, i think the Scottish win hands down! They are just THE Friendliest ppl i've ever met!!

...Anyhoo back to you Reece! Seriously how are u financing this? did u save a million quid or take out a loan or are you scavving off Simon's winnings?? (did he win anything?)
