Cold morning delay

Cold morning delay
It turns out that the airport express service runs mini buses until 7 am on Sunday mornings. This is a useful piece of information if you happen to be flying south on a cold winter morning and have chosen to leave your bully extra layer, scarf, hat and mitts at home rather than lugging them through airports, customs, transfers and bus rides.

Road tripping with Travel Bunny – Sault Ste. Marie Here we Come
  Driving north on the 400 through a beautiful array of fall colours, it’s hard not to stop every 15 minutes as we drive past another stunning photo opp of trees, sky, and water. But we have to keep driving since we still have 5+ hours on the road to go before we rest. If you haven’t bee up this way (and it’s my fist t [...]

Goodbye Winnipeg

Goodbye Winnipeg
Goodbye Winnipeg — Originally uploaded by LexnGer As I’m siting on the train waiting for the wheels to start turning and the gentle rocking to put me to sleep, I’m realizing how different this trip has been than all my other trips to Winnipeg. First, and most obviously, I haven’t been back in about 34 years. The sam [...]

What? Who? Where?

What? Who? Where?
Okay, Okay… I’m back. Sort of. Ish. For those of you not up on the Whirlwind Adventures of Lex & The Travel Bunny here’s how it goes. About 2 weeks ago, immediately after meeting the OneDegree crew for drinks at Brassaii, I packed  things up and hit the road. First stop: Kingston for a short visit with mom, some last m [...]

Travelling in time

Travelling in time
I’m current travelling on a piece of highway I’ve crossed at least twice a year since I was 3. Back and forth, forth and back, and forth again. Memories of Chicken inthe Basket and Cherry Pie fill my senses.

Enroute

Enroute
More of a test from my cell than anything really noteworthy. I suspect the next ten days will truely out of as an atrocious speller… Though using words like atrocious certainly won’t age my cause to hide it.

Enroute

Enroute
Well i’m on my way. Up early. Ungodly early, and into a cab to take me  to the bus to take me to the plane to  take me to the car to take me to the dogsled to take me to a warm toasty fire and a nap!

To TO

To TO
It was a bit of a ride, leaving Ottawa at 9:30am and getting into Toronto at 2:30pm. However, my brand new iPod really helped.  I read. I worked. I photographed the bunny.  Then, I finally arrived home after: 2 car trips 2 bus rides 2 parents 2 hosts 35 days 3 beds 1 hospital 3 doctors 3 provinces 2 cities 1 island 1 Cab Ride 2 periods 24 fr [...]

To Ottawa!

To Ottawa!
I’m in Kingston.  I’ve finally convinced my mother that the meds are working and my walking pneumonia can walk my ass to Ottawa… where I have rescheduled my arrival 4 times so far.  Have I mentioned my belief that K’ton is a place you can come, but you can never leave? Fingers crossed, I’m catching the 2pm bus [...]

Roadmaster Away.

Roadmaster Away.
The trip started with a little Ger-retrieval at 5pm in the centre of the Financial District.Seen above is Japor’s Roadmaster(tm) – our ride to NB.  It’s a huge car with plenty of packing space. We used it ALL up.  Jamming a couple of coolers, luggage, island gear, books and a big-ass generator into every available square in [...]

Island Time!

Island Time!
One last Starbucks with a buttermilk blueberry muffin and a leisurely review of my morning’s email. A little bike ride to deliver some books to World’s Biggest Bookstore.  Then flag down a manager, book in hand, to inquire as to why they don’t have CheapEats Toronto as part of their big Toronto display. (feel free to do this [...]
