I'll post some photos, etc, later, but here are some random thoughts about our trip to entertain you:-
- I didn't knit on the way out. The Air Canada check-in staff advised me to pack my needles into my suitcase.
- I did knit on the way home. The check-in staff sent DH off to speak to security to ensure they hadn't changed the rules since the last knitter checked in. Security's response was revealing - they couldn't quite comprehend why he was asking the question about such a normal activity. Nobody said anything to me when I went through security nor were there any comments on the plane.
- Quebec drivers are worse than the British. DH's cousin says they're worse than driving in France.
- Of the towns we visited, Quebec City was the most tourist friendly, followed by Ottawa.
- I didn't find any yarn shops, but I didn't get the chance to do much looking. I did, however, manage to pick up two very nice knitted cardigans for reasonable prices.
- I didn't drive on the wrong side of the road, but I did manage to turn the wrong way down a one-way street.
- The deep water in a typical North American toilet-bowl still freaks me out. Why, in two countries obsessed by hygiene, do you run the risk of "splash back" every time you go to the toilet??? Drop the water-level guys!
- I'd forgotten how big trucks could get. Saw my first proper road-train outside Australia.
PS: On the job front, I had a call yesterday from the recruiter who placed me in my current role. Seems he's set up on his own with some colleagues. Perfect timing. I wandered into the kitchen at work, talked to him for at least 10 minutes and officially started my job search.
