I have been planning a trip to Canada for some time. I rarely holiday anywhere but my own house(I do 'weekends' away frequently, but only really in Scotland) and I do not travell(I went to Rome for a week twenty years ago) so for me this a big thing.
Now all is going on an 'unplanned' status, my friends daughter has gone into labour six weeks early and my holiday may be slightly different. We had a total panic when this happened but nobody wants me to cancel and I am still heading over.
Just at the moment the baby seems to be staying put and things may be okay. But there is the possibility that I will arrive in Calgary with nobody to pick me up. . . we have looked into hostels and there are plenty of places to stay, then get the 'Greyhound' or look into internal flights. This thought filled me with horror till I thought about it and then decided this will be an ADVENTURE. So I am packing a rucksack instead of a suitcase for easier carrying.
But I think in future, the bottom of the garden may be as far I plan to go. . . .
