The train ride from Toronto to Vancouver is 4 nights and 3 days, which is a hell of a lot of time sitting on a train (with no shower - at least, not in economy class). As much as I do love staring out of windows and all the random things that a journey like this brings, I was very relieved to be splitting the trip by stopping off in Winnipeg for a few days. Also meant I got to hang out with my cousin and his fabulous family ;o)
We blew bubbles, splish-splash-sploshed in swimming pools, met and hung out with even more family, ate BBQ in the park, went strawberry picking and rolled down a big hill. Phew, I forget how much energy kids have! I had a blast - how could I not as I basically got to be a big kid again, wooohoo!
THANKS so much Anna, Jun, Andrew, Nicole and Precious xxx
