Last week, on our last full day in Toronto, I ventured up the CN Tower, one of the world’s tallest towers, with some friends. It offered some incredible views, spanning across the entire city, rivalling those of the Empire State Building!
If you’re looking for a place to stay that’s central to Toronto’s main attractions, has an awesome atmosphere and excellent standards, then the HI Toronto is the place to be. The staff are friendly, the dorms and bathrooms are clean and spacious (depending on what room you have – I was in a 10 bed … More Hostel Review: Hostelling International Toronto
So camp is over. The last 67 days (yes I counted) have been some of the best, the hardest, the most fun, the most stressful, the most awesome days ever, and I was so sad to get on that bus and watch Sloane disappear into the distance. But before I tell you what I’m doing … More Post-Camp Adventures
The kids arrive tomorrow afternoon, and I can’t wait for camp to really begin! This last week I’ve just been settling in and getting to grips with my job (or jobs!)….I’m in the office for part of the day, teaching media (film, photo & radio) 3 hours a day, and spending the rest of my … More Camp Begins Tomorrow!
I haven’t had access to the internet for a few days, but I’ve been keeping a log of what I’ve been up to, so here goes: Day 2 (in America…Day 1 at Camp) After a night of not great sleep (I don’t know whether this was to do with the heat, the jetlag, or just … More Getting Into Camp Life
While in Rhode Island, where I stayed with my aunt, uncle and cousins, we went on a fun day out to Newport, a city about 30 miles south of Providence (where my family live). We walked along the coast for miles and miles, hours and hours, and watched as the waves crash against the rocks, … More Photo Of The Week: Newport Cliff Walk, Rhode Island
Only 10 days to go until I board a plane to the US of A to begin my summer of American adventures. Eeeeeek! The countdown has begun.
I’m leaving Falmouth in 6 days. Yes, this time next week I’ll be back in London, getting ready for my summer in America, first at Camp Sloane and then wherever the road takes me. It’s a strange feeling, being so sad to leave Falmouth and all my friends, but also being ridiculously excited for what … More Packing Up My Life
Towards the end of my 3 month America trip, I stayed with some family friends in Issaquah, a little city just 17 miles east of Seattle, Washington. I had the most amazing time there, seeing and doing all sorts of things, in Seattle itself as well as in the neighbouring cities of Bellevue and Snoqualmie.
I have officially finished my degree! I handed everything in on Monday so now I am free to enjoy my last few weeks in Falmouth before I head off to the USA to begin my job at Camp Sloane. And I am more excited than words can possibly explain.
