Backpacking in Canada: My Cousin’s Wedding and Touring Winnipeg in 2001

I’m going to be posting some articles on the website in the next few months, which didn’t make the cut for my book, nor does it merit another e-Book of its own due to the lack of detail. That’s not to say that it wasn’t cool, just other stuff pushed them out. I still haven’t written Read more about Backpacking in Canada: My Cousin’s Wedding and Touring Winnipeg in 2001[…]

Top 3 Waterfalls I’ve Seen

I’ve seen dozens of waterfalls and as I mentioned once before “you rarely get a sh*t waterfall” (there was one on the Great Ocean Road in Australia actually, as it was literally just a drip of water falling…).

Toronto Blue Jays v. Cleveland Indians – A Night At The Baseball

I had visited Toronto in 2001 and even stepped foot inside The Rogers Centre, home of the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Team (who won the North American title loads of times in the 1990s), but didn’t on that visit see a match. On my second visit to Canada, and Toronto, I decided to get a Read more about Toronto Blue Jays v. Cleveland Indians – A Night At The Baseball[…]

Stepping Stones to Canada: Toronto

“You might not believe me. But I know I walked; on stepping stones, to Canada.” – Jonny Blair (2001) I first visited Canada in 2001, checking out Toronto, Niagara and Winnipeg.
