Surprised to see this has been up for nine days and no one has replied!
This summer will see me and the girlfriend and a couple of friends going flying in ultralight gliders for the day, so it should be interesting. Never been in an ultralight, but I love flying when I get the chance to go flying (even though I won't be at the controls, but they said on the info website that you can take the controls for a brief time, so, COOL!) Would love to go up in a hot air balloon or a glider. One day.
And we'll be going to Folklarama, a festival that celebrates cultural diversity for two weeks in August. I went with my girlfriend last year for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. We didn't get to all the pavillions (there were forty-six of them) but the ones we went to we enjoyed. (Especially the Scandinavian pavillion, where we stayed for a couple of hours; not for the food, displays, Scandinavian licorice [DO NOT EVER TRY IT! It's f*cking SALTY!], or to listen to Almost ABBA, but for this wonderful drink they had called Viking Power punch that is made from Akavit, a Danish liqueur, and mixed with fruit juices. My GF and I agreed that was one of the best drinks we had had at Folklarama. Hopefully we'll revisit some of the pavillions that we enjoyed and get to some that we couldn't get too. (www.folklorama.ca
is the website if anyone wants to take a look.)
And there'll be the usual stuff: going to the beach, getting sunburned, nearly drowning (that was scary!), visits from people from faraway places, and last but not least, hopefully working, as I've been unemployed since the end of January when the store i was working at closed down. Didn't think I'd be out of work for so long. But staying positive about things. Something will come up.
