Our journeys around Australia

After an overnight stay at Heathrow we flew out to Toronto where we spent 3 days.

Niagra falls

We visited Niagra Falls which were amazing.

We took the boat trip which seemed to take us under the falls; lucky we had the protective clothing on!

We also visited a tunnel that runs behind the falls; this allowed us to get close to the action:

'The Brink'

The following day we visited some of the sights and in the evening we had booked a meal in the revolving restaurant at the top of the CN Tower.

The following day we had to get up early to catch a flight to Vancouver but we got up a bit earlier than planned as the fire alarms went off in the hotel at 1:30 in the morning!

The flight from Toronto to Vancouver took just under 5 hours and we got to the hotel around 11 in the morning after changing our clocks once again. We went for a walk and managed to stay awake until the early evening but then the jet lag and early morning fire drill caught up with us.

The following morning we caught a Greyhound bus out to Abbotsford where we picked up our motor home for the next stage of our holiday. We drove out to a Provincial Park near Harrison Hot Springs but the place was full – it was the start of the weekend and the place was an easy commute from the city so we had to drive back into the local town and camp in a commercial site for the night.

That brings us to today. We had a long but very scenic drive following the Fraser River to Salmon Arm where we are spending the night.Salmon Arm campsiteOur home until the end of the month.

I forgot to mention the weather – It was sunny in Toronto but cool in the wind but here in Salmon Arm it’s 9:30 at night and still 26deg.
