A Huge Thank You!

26 Jul

I just wanted to take the time to thank my awesome hosts in Dubai, Meghan and Paige. These two girls took me in for a grueling 9 days. They took me to go see the sights of Dubai in the disgusting heat when I am sure they would have preferred a nice day around the pool. It didn’t stop when then sun went down though, we hit the bar scene hard for some great times and times we hope are quickly forgotten. Wow the time went by fast and now it is time to move on. Most importantly I want to thank these girls for putting up with me for that long and not kicking me to the curb. You girls are the best and I can not Thank You enough!

A Graduation in Dubai

22 Jul

While here in Dubai I was lucky enough to catch my friend Meghan Adams’ graduation to a full fledged cabin crew, she told me not to put it up so I did it anyways. Sorry about the bad quality.


Danish Hospitality

21 Jul

Well my solitude did not last long… At the end of my last meal out with my parents I asked our server where I should spend my Saturday. After a few minutes of chatting she gave me her number and told me to call her in the morning. After I parted ways with the folks the next day (see Gravy Train is Over), I called up Line and she came over to my hotel. She lived close by and said we could drop my bag off at her place while we went out for the day.

We grabbed her bikes and she took me for a tour all  over Copenhagen. We rode through lots of parks and saw all the sites to see, it was great to finally get out in the city when it was actually sunny out. After the bike tour we went back to her house where her mom made us a Danish lunch. After our cool down we jumped back on the bikes and went to Tivoli the amusement park right in the middle of Copenhagen. We had such a great time on all the rides, especially the fact you got to see all of Copenhagen from the tops of them.

It was getting dark and figured it was time to start drinking so we rolled back to her place for some food and a warm up for the night. We drank with her neighbours and her sister and then out to the club. All they drank were shots, no time for casual beers so things got ugly fast. I was out on the dance floor most of the night, killing any reputation Canadians had for good dancers. We slimed home just after 4 to crash at her place.

The next day we woke up and Line took me to the national museum and then we went and watched a movie. It was raining again so we went back to her place for dinner, her mom made us some Mexican food. I packed up my stuff and then Line walked me to my Hostel. We then went out for a quick beer before I said goodbye to the best tour guide I could have asked for. A great way to start off the trip, so Thank You again Line!
