Road trip USA / Canada
 
Hey all,

As usual i am going to the usa to Jordan con 2014 :) this year i am thinking of combining it with a road trip and visit some friends:)

If you are interested in meeting up and or showing me around let me know. My plans atm are pretty flexible. Although i will be going end of march, beginning of april:)

Toronto just got an AWESOME new aquarium...just saying. ;)

Isabel 10-28-2013 11:50 AM

Hana, i will definetly keep it in mind:)

Dance season
 
My daughter is in a pile of dance competitions beginning then, but outside of that we could try rally some of the Theoryland Northers somewhere to meet up, depending how far north you make it.

And I should be in Toronto for work the entire week of Apr 8.

Isabel 11-01-2013 12:50 AM

I will look into it, GLOTD:) in the week of 8 april, i would need to go on 10 april to jordan con.

btw, how far north? Which places? Would be awesome to meet up with all the canadian friends:)

ShadowbaneX 11-01-2013 09:33 PM

I would think Kingston would probably be a decent place. I could make that, but I doubt I could justify Toronto. Ottawa would be another possibility.

Khoram 11-02-2013 09:05 AM

Ottawa would be much easier. Cause, you know, 6 hours of driving and all. :rolleyes:

Unless people wanted to come to Montreal instead... :p By the way, GL, are you happening to drop by next week, per chance, like last year?

Great Lord of the Dark 11-02-2013 09:38 AM

Nope
 
No Montreal on the horizon for now

Khoram 11-02-2013 09:58 AM

Darn. Oh well. I guess we won't be witnessing any drunk, desperate men dancing in a bar this year.

Isabel 11-02-2013 12:43 PM

So where does everyone live? And whats there to see do? Perhaps i can do a road trip and hang out with people and if people are interested, also organise a meet up somewhere in Canada:)

ShadowbaneX 11-02-2013 04:29 PM

GL & I are in Ottawa. Khoram's in Montreal. Ishy's outside of Toronto. Brita's a bit further out iirc.

Khoram 11-02-2013 04:44 PM

I think Cor is somewhere in Ontario, too.

Looks like the majority of Theorylanders are.

Ishara 11-04-2013 09:20 AM

Brita is in Thunder Bay. Not much to do up there but see Brita, if you know what I mean. ;)

Isa, we're all fairly far away here in Ontario. Both Ottawa and Montreal are beautiful and chock full of Canadian History, as well as museums and galleries and lovely parks etc. They will likely not be WARM in April, but you're tough. :)

If you want to come back this way, you are more than welcome to stay at our place, obvs. But, you've seen the big stuff Toronto and the surrounding area's got to offer already, except for the aquarium (seriously, it's AWESOME).

:( Are you certain you can't?
Would it help if i said that Pops is probably going!

Isabel 11-14-2013 11:27 AM

I need to be making more concrete plans :) :)

My idea is now to find out if there are interesting places to visit near Toronto, Montreal and Ottowa or part of those.

Are people interested to organise a Canadian meet and what are than the options for everyone? :) Where can they meet up? And is it only possible in the weekend or during the week? :)

Khoram 11-14-2013 12:31 PM

There's quite a bit to see in Montreal - many museums, we have our infamous Red Light district, if you are so inclined, we have hockey, even in April (:D), the Big O (if you're feeling adventurous - you know, because of falling roofs and all that), the Biodome, Botanical Gardens... There are also quite some gems in terms of restaurants. :)

ShadowbaneX 11-14-2013 07:21 PM

First, it's OttAwa.

As for availability, I'm unsure. I can definitely meet here. Kingston or Montreal are outside possibilities. Toronto? I'm on record as saying I wouldn't go there to save the planet so that's probably out.

Isabel 11-15-2013 11:29 AM

Haha, i will try to remember it SBX :)

And sounds good Khoram. I just wish it was 10 degrees celsius warmer in Canada in march / april :D
