Arrived Safe n Sound!
Made it safe and sound. Flight was long and fairly boring. Didnt get the cool little video screens in front of me that everyone promised I would, so was a bit disappointed with that. Apparently Air Canada isnt as cool as some other airlines!!
Was really glad to step off the plane at Vancouver airport after a great view of so many HUGE snow capped mountains. While at the airport I had some trouble trying to figure out how the phones worked (and with some great advice from a local) i managed to ring Emma & Kris and inform that that i had arrived a day earlier than expected and to wake Mum & Tone up at 4.30AM (totally forgot about the time difference, sorry guys).
Didnt stay in Vancouver for the 1st night like had planned, I just wanted to get all the travelling out of the way in one day, so caught bus from airport to a shuttle bus to the Greyhound bus depo. The bus left at 3 so had some time to do some shopping while waiting (no really great place to shop-but good for cheap stuff - compared to airport 4 sure!) Turned out that the bus ride from Vancouver to Whistler wasnt as bad as i expected it was actually really pretty. There are trees everywhere even in the city there are heaps, and its like the mountains come right down to the road. The ride started to get more exciting when i could see snow on the sides of the road and the mountains are absolutely everywhere!!!
Hope thats enough 2 keep ya going for a while. Im fine and having great fun so far. Off to adventure more, will write again sometime soon.
PS - hope your alright Ang, have to be more careful sis, you got a wedding coming up the last thing you need is a few scars! Good old Max hey, bit of a nuffer!
