Cold in Ottawa

I had originally planned to update quite a bit, but unfortunately because I have been so crazy busy with getting my internship started and just having too much fun hanging with the people in my internship group I can't promise that anymore. So now what I will do, is promise that I'm going to update at least over the weekends and fill everything in that happened during the week.

Although, I would like to say, that the first night I got in Ottawa, I was hanging with some people from my internship group and as we were walking to a pub, it started snowing. In May. I couldn't believe it. Not to mention I didn't bring any winter clothes with me because I was expecting summer weather, but still. That was mother nature's like last eff you before summer really kicks in. Hopefully from here on out we have nothing but good weather.

So I'm off to bed. It has been a very tiring past few days but soooo much fun. I'll updated again at least by this weekend.

Traveling to Toronto

So far my very first train ride has been pleasantly uneventful. And lucky for me it comes with complimentary Wi-Fi that actually works. Being my first train ride, I'm surprised by how smooth the passenger car feels. I don't know if it's something I saw in a movie once, but for some reason I always thought riding a train would be bouncy and jerk you back and forth in your seat.

I have a few more hours until I reach Toronto, so I'm going to leave you with a quick snap shot before I try to catch a quick catnap. I'm going to need it considering I haven't slept in going on 24hours now.

Until Toronto!

The Crazy Canadian Adventure Begins Here

I leave for Canada in a couple hours. My grandmother and I are driving across the border where I'll catch the train to Toronto and from there on to Ottawa. I'm pretty excited about taking the train. The little kid in me has always wanted to ride a train and now I finally get to. Though, considering it's a ten hour train ride I'll be more than ready to bid it goodbye when I reach my final destination.

Once I reach Ottawa, I'll have the rest of the day Saturday and most of Sunday to wander around Ottawa exploring before I have to meet up with my internship group. I'm really looking forward to wandering around so that I can scope out some places to check out and take pictures of the area.

I'll check back in once I check into my room and have internet again.
