    After 7 1/2 hours I have finally arrived in Canada! Yep, weather like England, everything else looks like America.

    Just wanted to say hello to my fellow bit-techers, got free internet in the hotel, currently downloading lots of games at 550kbps!

    So, anyone got any suggestions on places I should visit? Going up the CN tower when the weather's better!

    Gotta go and have a great time!! :rock:

    well done, I stayed in canada for 6 months last year and it was without a doubt the best time of my life so great to be away from blighty(much as i love the place) i can't really recommend anywhere (was in the butt-**** of nowhere)but winnipeg was pretty cool the times i went also make sure and get yourself a bottle of rye - it'll bring out the caveman in you and you'll roam around going ug alot - also i really recommend going for a walk at 3am looking for your mate wearing nothing but a t-shirt and a pair o jeans inthe middle of december... its not chilly in the slightest... honest... :worried:

    Umm, where in Canada? Because despite some narrow American views, Canada has MORE THAN ONE BLOODY CITY! "Oh yeah, goin to Canada eh, meet you at city centre!" :rolleyes:



    Oh, yeah, welcome to the boonies ehh!

    CN Tower and Niagra Falls are a must if your in / near Toronto. I was in Canada 5 years ago and it was the best holiday I've ever been on.

    forogt to mention im in toronto! 8 floors up and a nice view of the city! its 06.29am and i've been up since 6, went to bed at 9 last night, the time is confusing me a bit. :confused:

    we're going on a chopper ride over niagra falls on wednesday, hope the weathers nice, and i saw the bottom of the CN tower, the top was covered in clouds, got on the net, and realised i only saw about 1/20th of the tower! the other 19/20th is in clouds!

    breakfast now...

    Don't know much about Toronto really. My sister lives just North-East of you in Montreal though. If you head up that way you should give me a shout and I'll tell you some sites to go to. :thumb:

    Malfoleo - I know many things about Canada and realize there are many cities. I'm more familiar with the Quebec province since we studied it in French class though. My sister even invited me up when I turned 18 so I could drink legally, hehe. Go Canada (Quebec anyway) :D .

    It varies by province. Quebec, Alberta, and another one have a drinking age of 18, the others are 19 iirc.

    greetings from across the body of water you look out upon. Look out on a clear day, if you get one - cudos for you for coming in october; fog season and early snowfall - and look for a bridge spanning the lake, I am in the city at the leftmost (southern) edge; Hamilton.

    OR

    Do you smell that? no not that, but when the wind is coming from the south-west take a good whif, and if you cough; that came from Hamilton, or possibly a passing tractor-trailer(articulated lorry).

    If you get the chance to visit Ottawa, take a couple hours to pass into the gateneau valley (quebec) for their "festival of Fall colours" The largest Urban Park in canada - built on an escarpment, and open year round for tourists - is a pretty cool sight, as are the cat condos at parliament hill, theyve been there longer than most of our politicians. Though that is a 4 or 5 hour drive from toronto. Myself I am one to one-half hour south. The CN (Canadian National) Tower - the worlds largest freestanding structure has a restaurant at the doughnut, serves pretty good food too I hear. I'd say check out a game at the ACC but... Even without the strike that would only be the make me laughs.

    Also some of the cheapest prices for computer components are in markham at "tiger direct"

    Dont make me stab you :p from past experience stay away from tiger direct... Occasionally they have good prices on stuff, *after rebate. Hehe.

    Anything they offer you can get cheaper here: www.icct.ca and www.infonec.com (theres locations downtown) (btw, dont trust prices on the site, call)

    -enjoy Toronto!

    Had a fab time so far, a chopper ride over niagra falls was amazing, and the meal at the top of the CN tower is just beautiful, but it set us back over $1000! (£450). By the eaton centre in Toronto I spotted this this, so I got my camera out and captured it, this'll teach people not to trust M$...
