Hello my awesome readers!
How are you all?
So it’s been a busy two months which is why I haven’t blogged as much. A few weeks after my brother’s wedding I went to Canada for my cousins wedding in Toronto. My first real holiday! I have only ever been on pilgrimages to India so I was super excited once I got to the airport. It seemed more real by then. I started to pack the night before the flight and by the time I finished and got an hours worth of sleep it was time to leave at 4.30am to Gatwick airport. I felt like shit and so tired that when we were at the airport I forgot my hand luggage in one of the shops!!! My mum rang me to make sure I went to the gate on time and she asked me if I had the hang luggage. I literally screamed out SHIT! My mum was like whats wrong? Meera what did you do? Don’t tell me you lost the bag? I said oh no its nothing, I wish I bought the Marie Claire magazine that’s all! So listen I’ll see you in a bit.
Impossible– Retrieve hand luggage.
I didn’t even remember what shop I left it in. So I frantically rushed like a mad woman and went to all the stores and finally found my bag in WH Smith near the pay yourself machine. P-H-E-W.
The flight wasn’t as smooth as I hoped, plenty of turbulence and cold air! If I had known Air Transat charged to have a blanket and headphones I would have brought my own. Not that buying headphones would have mattered as our screens from our row onwards stopped working. Thank God for Glamour and Cosmopolitan.
I was only there for 7 days but it was a wonderful and memorable week. Most of the family were living under one roof, so it was bound to be a mad house. But it was great to catch up and spend quality time with everyone as we hardly get the chance to all come together.
It was so hot and the sun was shining so brightly! The total opposite from home. It was so weird to see the big roads, and road signs and the style and size of the houses compared to London. And of course seeing everyone drive on the left side of the road was so bloody strange!
One of my yummy moments of the trip has to be the famous ICE CAPP from Tim Hortons. As my cousin told me, you haven’t lived if you havent tasted this bad boy.
The last day of our trip we went to see the beautifully breath-taking Niagara Falls. We got there in the late afternoon so managed to see how the falls looked like during the day and at night. We happened to go on a good day as there was a firework display due to Happy Canada the day before. I could have stood there for hours. It was just awesome.
For the return flight my mum bought two blankets from a mall to use on the plane. Clever mother! Because it was a cosy warm flight home. As we landed I looked outside the window to find that it was miserably raining.
Ahh….Home sweet home.
