so far (in two days), i have...
~ bumped into Jaydee Bixby (second place in 2007 canadian idol) at tim horton's...
~ ridden a greyhound, two cable cars, two subways and a city bus JUST to get to pearson airport in toronto
~ spilled soup all over my pants in the airport
~ made it through customs alive (as opposed to deported)
~ gotten completely and ridiculously LOST approximatly 8 times
~ accidentally sat in first class instead of second.. oh and got yelled at by the train conductor!
~ met over two dozen people from literally ALL over the world
~ figured out why the houses in amsterdam lean forwards (you'll NEVER guess)
~ walked throught the red light district and got winked at by a prostitute
~ met a kid who got his own name written on a hat, so that when he and all his friends are intoxicated, they can remember what his name is
~ met someone who did NOT know what the kid's name is, even though it's written on his hat! (idiot...?)
~ drank tea with only ONE sugar.. (yea, for all those who know me well, this is a HUGE deal... seriously!)
~ eaten WALK TO WOK - amazzzing
~ eaten at McDonald's - disgusting
~ slept in a bed that felt like a bunch of bricks...
~ slept on a floor (i'm on a budget and the hostel was completely booked! somehow, the floor feels better than the bed!)
~ basked in happy hour
~ discussed global politics and the beauty of van gogh
~ gotten drenched by the rain
~ bought and drank TWO bottles of wine (altogether costing me 4 euros... no joke!)
~ walked around aimlessly and still found our way back to the hostel
~ spoke to someone in french
~ met an australian who DOESN'T drink (i dare you to try and find one)
it's been crazzzzzzy... and the next step? i'm thinking dusseldorf, but not entirely sure! ciao for now
