What I Did On My Holidays

In February (plus a few days in January and March), I went around the world.

Vancouver

Steam driven clock
Snow-shoeing
H R McMillan Space Centre
Science World British Columbia
Storyeum
Harbour Centre Tower
Stanley Park (including the "girl in the wetsuit")

Notes: The Steam driven clock can "chime", and was built only a few decades ago. I learnt at the Storyeum of the Doukhobors, who bombed and stripped naked for their pacifist ideals. Sounds somewhat familiar. Everyone in the Storyeum photos looked very serious, even the hurdy gurdy girls.

Whistler

Skied and snowboarded

Seattle

Space Needle
Seattle Aquarium
Seattle Underground Tour

Notes: Not all seals form harems, and some species of octopus stop eating after reproducing and look after their offspring until they die. The underground tour is great, though not recommended for those with delicate sensibilities.

Calgary

Canada Olympic Park
Calgary Tower
Glenbow museum

Notes: You can go up one of the ski jumps. As well as magnificent views, they have information on ski jumping. Apparently it's safer than it looks, and for most of the flight you're only a few metres above the ground. Canada Olympic Park saw the Olympic debut of Michael Edwards ("Eddie the Eagle") and the Jamaican bobsled team, and last year it saw the debut of Australia's women's skeleton team. Skeleton is for those who like going at over 100 kilometres an hour, but think going feet first (like lugers do) is entirely too sensible.

Canmore

Cross country skiing

Notes: The cars stop for you if you want to cross the road!

Toronto

Hockey Hall of Fame
Whistle Brewery
CN Tower
Royal Ontario Museum
Bata shoe museum
Toronto Olympic Spirit Museum

Notes: For the Whistle Brewery, instead of paying an admission fee, you have to buy a souveneir. At the Royal Ontario Museum, you can buy replicas of some of the exhibits. I bought a replica of a painted relief from the tomb of Metjetji (spelling may vary). The Toronto Olympic Spirit Museum had information, photo opportunities and sports practice.

Washington, D.C.

Smithsonian museums
Congress
United States Botanic Garden

Notes: While waiting for a tour of the capitol, I visited the United States Botanic Garden, and saw a Wollemi pine. Not bad, considering that about a decade ago, it only existed undiscovered in a single area a few hours from Sydney.

New York

Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum
Katz's Deli
The former World Trade Centers 1 & 2

London

The Tower of London

Bergen, Norway

Hanseatic Museum
Fishing museum
Funicular

Notes: I took the "Norway in a Nutshell" trip from Bergen to Oslo. The scenery was amazing.

Oslo, Norway

Hollenstein ski jump and museum
Oslo town hall
Fram museum

Notes: The Fram had gone further north and further south than any other boat. The museum also had an exhibit on Australian Antarctic bases. On the flight I took from Oslo to Copenhagen, the TVs showed the plane's-eye view of the take-off.

Comments:
Hey, you forgot to mention making nonsensical posts on the Mediawatch website, and being paid out for same.
 
Hey, you forgot to mention making nonsensical posts on the Mediawatch website, and being paid out for same.

That happened after my holidays.

My first post in the mediawatch website for 2005 was about the potential conflict of interest caused by Iran buying advertising space on CNN and the BBC. That post couldn't have been made earlier than April.
 
Flowers have been used for centuries to decorate and perfume houses.
Bringing fresh cut flowers into your home adds colour and scent it is
true, but the flowers add an extra dimension that cannot be created
with soft furnishings and accessories – they bring with them a sense
of life and growth, making a room come alive. So read about a holiday mathis
 
Hi Blogger, sometimes I wish that life was so simple and that when looking for cheap airport parking I actually did find exactly that. Having said that although your What I Did On My Holidays was really not quite what I was looking for it somehow I found that it grabbed my attention and I surprised myself by reading it with interest. So all said and done I'm glad that I did stop by your blog. Keep Blogging!
 
Hi Blogger, wish it was me that wrote your blog. Why you might ask? Well I was actually searching for cheap charter flights when I came across your What I Did On My Holidays blog. To be honest it was not something that I thought was relevant to my initial search at first but despite myself I found myself reading it with interest and I just liked the easy way in which you express the things that interest you. So there you are I just thought that I'd let you know....

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
 
I have remembered. All this links I have saw yet.
