This weekend, braving bitter cold and blowing snow, I ventured down to Toronto with Rich and Sue for this year’s Ultimate Travel Show at the Ricoh Coliseum.
To be fair, I’ve got nothing against snow. And having recently returned from three weeks in Hawaii, I admit I’m luckier than most of the people battling through what has already been the harshest Ontario winter in years.
But this is the time of year when we all dream about getting away! Even if those dreams won’t come true for months or even years.
For me, Toronto’s Ultimate Travel Show certainly fuelled those dreams. As well as bringing back more than a few happy memories.
We spent a wonderful few hours chatting with people about places close to home and places halfway around the world. About places we’ve been and places we’re going to. About places we dream about visiting and one or two places we’d never even heard of before. Here are just a few of them…
We had a great time at the Travel Show and will definitely be returning next year. The exhibitors were all so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Yet that’s hardly surprising, since most of them came from the countries they were showcasing. Each made you want to just drop everything and head straight to the airport!
But the main take home message was…
I definitely need a bigger bucket!
And if that’s not enough for you, there are now three Jaspa’s Journey novels to enjoy as ebooks! Perfect for Kids 8 – 80!
PS. Sorry the photos aren’t up to my usual standard. I’ll make sure Rich takes his proper camera next year, instead of relying on his phone!
