  • Viking Trail 2

    Made a decision to head back south, rather than spend a couple of days up there – there didn’t seem a huge point in hanging around – I thought I’d rather get to St John’s and spend time there instead. It did mean not going to Labrador, but I sort of felt I’d just be […]

    The Viking Trail That Wasn’t !

    Back to Canada !

    Arrived Pearson Airport, Toronto Wednesday evening, having flown again with Air Transat, who seem pretty good – although amazingly enough the plane didn’t have any screens in the back of the seats + don’t eat the pizza ! Meant I spent most of the flight either sleeping or talking to a very chatty Canadian next […]

Got any book recommendations?
