First stop is Canada:
So why should one go to Canada? I have four categories so hopefully something is to your liking.
1. The girls
Love How I Met Your Mother and Cobie Smulder playing Robin Scherbatsky is one hot Canadian.
This Vancouver native first caught our eye as Lt. Sharon Lt. Sharon “Boomer” Valerii “Boomer” Valerii in the cult sensation, in the cult sensation, Battlestar Battlestar Gallactica. Gallactica.

“Canada has a cuisine of cuisines. Not a stew pot, but a smorgasbord.” Former Canadian prime minister Joe Clark
Had to Wikipedia this since I only know Canadian food from Bob in Winnipeg and I think he eats everything 😀 . But he had a blog post about the hot dogs there that looked insanely good. When I finally will make it to Winnipeg he has promised me hockey and dogs. Yeah!
Some really good artists and bands from Canada includes for instance Leonard Cohen, Nickelback, Guess Who, Bachman Turner Overdrive etc. Unfortunately they also gave us Justin Bieber which is hard to forgive.
Let’s finish off the Canadian music experience with Bryan Adams.
Ice hockey! The best game in the world and of course the greatest player of them all is Wayne Gretzky. No one can tell me otherwise.
Off course there is more to Canada than this but I would leave now to Canada for my 4 reasons alone.
+ If you want to make an American smile, ask a Canadian to say out and about. It works every time.
+ Canadians call the one dollar coin the loonie. When in full production, 15 million loonies can be produced per day.
+ The Canadian motto is A Mari Usque ad Mare. It means from sea to sea.
+ Canada has the world’s smallest jail – in Rodney, Ontario; it’s only 24.3 square meters (270 square feet).
+ 32% of Canadians are very happy, 55% are quite happy.

It kinda gives me a kick, not a big fan of him but the pure enjoyment of the picture is just awesome. As I said, not a big fan though especially after his lovely remark that he claimed to be the one to bring the Berlin Wall down, hmmmm… slight ego-boost galore there 😀 but thank god he was around otherwise, would we have been able to see slow-mo Pam Anderson skimping around, I don’t know but it sure helped my childhood or teenage hood, can’t remember now.
But anyhoo people around, ‘strike a pose’, listen to the Hoff… hihi…
And talk about small or big world, was sitting in my local pub and talking to some of the guys I know there. But as you probably know as well, I really don’t know them and they don’t know me either, just nice acquaintances really while drinking a pint and just relaxing after work. But sometimes you just get a smack in the face.

and was sitting in my garden today when I heard music and realised it was the beginning of Abbeyfest here in Merton Abbey, gorgeous jazz and blues free every friday until the end of august so had to jump over there and managed to enjoy the music and dance some swing with the ladies as well, oh my… brilliant, well maybe they didn’t think so… 🙂
So here goes, some lovely picture of me… not dancing (too dangerous for photos)
well, what can one say, it just goes downhill faster than Stenmark.
Finally I can say that I was backstage, ok it might have helped that the bar was situated backstage, anyyyhooooo, backstage people, backstage!
But this is the guy who I was watching, brilliant Jazz musician, Tony O’Malley
but honestly these were the shoes I was looking for, couldn’t find them though 😦
