Day 337

Christy being the good egg that she is let me crash in her huge fluffy pillow castle of a bed last night while she took the couch, its the best sleep I have had in a long time and ended up sleeping in until almost noon. I still managed to make it downtown to do…

Day 336

Yay Christy! I made it to Boston today without any problems. Christy was one of the first and craziest couch surfers we ever had and she ended up returning multiple times and staying with us for months. Now she is letting me crash with her and her family for week or so before I head…

Day 335

Ottawa, Canada. My CS host Dmitri took me for a walk down the shore of the Ottawa river on the Quebec side this morning to check out this abandoned railway and bridge and to try and spot a beaver. We didn’t see a beaver unfortunately, but we did find a tree which had quite obviously…

Day 334

This morning I woke up with a slight hangover from a drinking session with Brae and his workmates where I pretty much had to carry brae home, but I made it to the metro with plenty of time to make it to my rideshare to Ottawa today. However today of all days the Metro decided…

Day 333

Montreal Street Art! There are some awesome murals in Montreal partly thanks to a yearly mural festival held in June. These are just a fraction of the great stuff mostly around the plateau and mile end, and there is tonnes more downtown and in some other suburbs of Montreal.

Day 331

Today I was supposed to head into the countryside with two of Braes housemates to spend the night in Mont Tremblant but because of the long weekend the hire car prices skyrocketed, so we decided to just do a day trip tomorrow instead, which left today wide open. So Maria and I dusted off two bikes,…

Day 330

I awoke from my garbage patch in Estelle’s blazingly bright sun room with a bottle cap stuck to my face. There was only one thing I could think of to cure the hangover that was sure to set in. My 4th greasy, cheese-curdy Poutine in the last 8 days. We intended to make it out…

Day 328

Icicles everywhere! After last nights “Blizzard of flurries” I woke up to the sun shining and causing the snow from the night before to form icicles everywhere, but most notably on the bottom of the iconic Montreal staircases and under cars. The sun was out, but it was still bloody freezing. Brae somehow swindled another…

Day 327

I have never felt so cold as I did today. I went to the Montreal Biodome (not the biosphere) where they have several artificial indoor habitats full of animals from around the world from the Amazon to the Arctic. I watched a bird trying to wash the poison off a poison frog for about 10…
