Day 149

Everthing is packed. We are ready for the flight back to Germany, but not in the mood... ;)

Day 148

Pros and cons of living in Canada

+ Shops on Sunday open
+ long opening hours
+ relaxed driving due to tempo limit of 100 km/h
+ cheap gas
+ free refill in many restaurants
+ quick and friendly waitresses
+ good burgers
+ you are allowed to turn right at red traffic lights
+ air conditioning in normal houses
- slow driving due to tempo limit of 100 km/h
- most goods are expensive
- only big packs in supermarkets
- bad washing maschines (the one in our house was bad)
- prices are displayed without tax (always bad surprise at check-out)
- drinking water has a taste of chlorine

... no guarantee to completeness

Day 147

The second day of saying goodbye.
We had the last dinner with our housemates, colleagues and friends at Bertoldi's Trattoria, a very good Italian restaurant in London downtown. The food was delicious, but we were cold. The air conditioning did his job too good. My girlfriend and one of the housemates shared one jacket. The hot sticky air outside of the restarant was lovely when we left the restaurant. Then we were bitten by mosquitos! ;)

Day 146


Before we left Tobermory, we visited the lighthouse and another part of the coast. Then we drove to Stratford in order to eat ice cream and try the sandwiches of the York Street Kitchen (24 Erie Street). The sandwiches were amazing!

In the evening we were going to the movies and watched Monsters University. As I saw the first trailers, I expected really not much from this Pixar movie. But what should I say, it was a real Pixar with wonderful design, great animation, nice music, good humour, interesting characters and the story was also not bad. From me 85% (stay in front of the screen until the end of the credits)
As is usual Pixar indulges its audience with a short film. The animation of "The blue umbrella" was quite different, but very interesting. I saw better shorts before, however it's a nice one.

Day 145


Tobermory is really nice and Flowerpot Island a natural wonder. Strange rock formations at crystal clear water. We stepped with the feet into it. That was really a Kneipp experience!

Day 144

We cycled on Georgian Bay Islands Nationalpark. At first it was fun, but after we left the bikeways it turned into a nightmare (the author totally overstates ). If there was a trail, it was several times blocked by fallen trees and mosquitos bit us everywhere. Nevertheless you use bug dope or wear jeans!
After the fight with the jungle we drove to Tobermory and enjoyed a wonderful dinner and a beautiful sunset. :)
