San Fran – U S of A …

Posted by cooper on Aug 28, 2008 in holidays

So I am here, live from the bay area San Fran, CA, USA. Fresh from the land of flapping heads where I had a total BLAST. Hilights included the glacier, surfing in Tofino and Hydro Broncing in Whisler. Below is one of my last activities on Canada on the way to Vancouver Airport …

San Fran, what a city. It is actually one I don’t hate at all – It has lots to do, people are nice and geographically not that large. The hostel (which was well reccomended by Alisha) has been great and I have been having fun every night. Yet again to much drinking!

Yesterday I went on a Segway tour – A must for any nerd (and non)! Was awesome! These are cool toys and I want one! I think ANSTO should buy one for the Desktop team to get around on! haha – Not that handy to carry computers on tho … The night was awesome too as I went for Pakistanian food with 30 odd people from the hostel and took over this whole resturaunt – I love the food and I could actually talk Cricket with these individuals, very very rare in these parts.

In Canada !

Posted by cooper on Aug 21, 2008 in holidays

So I am now in the land of the ‘Flapping Head’ eh! (Dam they like to say eh! LOL) I arrived on Sunday (10/08/2008) afternoon after an ‘interesting’ flight in a very small aircraft from Pittsburgh to Toronto (or known as T-dot to the locals). Once arrived I waited, waited and waited some more for my luggage – but all to no avail. Air Canada are great! So feeling like I was back @ ANSTO (my place of work) I participated in filling out the boring forms and completing all the rigmarole required in order for them to find/recover/get to me my bags. They were ever so kind tho to offer me $50 to get ‘bare essential’ clothing tho; Thanks guys! Eventually contact was made and my suitcase was delivered to Carolyns home residence in Perth, Ontario – One of the most historic and pretty towns I have ever been/seen.

But apart from this my meeting up with Drew and Carolyn has been great! I am having a blast. Going to the Scien Tower in T-dot and then met a great family down in Niagara Falls, the Martins. They were great and I thank them for a great feed and great Canadian hospitality. At the falls we went on the Maid of the Mist which is a truly great experience. Please make sure you look at the pics (when I upload them) for this! ‘The Falls’ are amazing!

I have also seemed to be on a war path. I have developed (This I can thank Paul for this) a cold and have broken my smallest toe on my left foot tripping on the grass! LOL – Dam I must be getting old, all these injuries. I am now in Calgary staying at one of Carolyn’s friends place.

We have since headed out west to see some of the most beautiful parts of the world in Alberta and British Columbia. Camping and going out each night has been the norm. I am now in a sweet hostel in Whistler about to head out to Victoria Island near Vancouver. Check out this crazy ball thing I took on Yesterday:

Over and out c00p eh!

Off To Canada

Posted by cooper on Aug 11, 2008 in holidays

Well it’s time to leave Pittsburgh, PA and head to Canada to meet up with Mr Drew Shaw and Miss Truelove. Looking foreward to it, if Canada is 1/2 as good as Pitsburgh has been I am going to have a bawl. Loving the free wireless that the US gives everywhere! Australia needs to do the SAME ! DAMMIT ! My last night in Pittsburgh was quite a big one, 2 hours of sleep leaves a man feeling quite TIRED ! Coop out …

In the USA … Feeling Dirty …

Posted by cooper on Aug 5, 2008 in holidays

Well some 12+ hours I am sitting in the same clothes feeling dirty @ SFO Airport waiting for my connecting flight to Pittsburgh to hook up with Mr Spatech. The flight wasent as bad as I thought, I actually got some sleep, watch Leatherheads (?) or something with George ‘Cloony’ and some movie where they stole diamonds from some pommie diamond organisation. A lot of Spanish being spoken around here … Not bad talent 😛 lol … c00p out …
