Montreal, QC, Canada - 6th February 2010

By: imahockeynut

Today we went to see a movie called From Paris with Love. It was playing at a movie theatre in the old Montreal Forum where the Montreal Canadien's used to play until they moved to a newer arena further downtown. Now it's an entertainment complex with restaurants, a movie theatre, a comedy club and some stores.

This is approximately where centre ice was when the Forum was still used as a arena.

This is a statue of Maurice Richard, one of the greatest Habs players of all time.

We were a little early for the movie, so we sat around relaxed on an authentic seat from the Forum.

While sitting down, I notice that their Christmas is still up. Don't they know that it's February now?
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4022/4337378603_10a6b505be.jpg
 
Finally we get to our seat. That's me enjoying a blue raspberry icee or slushie.  The movie was very good but I won't say anything else because I don't want to spoil it if you want to see the movie.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2738/4338180546_7a0723c04f.jpg

Later, we watched some hockey. First we watch mom's favourite team, the Toronto Maple Leafs face their provincial rivals the Ottawa Senators. The Leafs won 5-0 and mom was very happy.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2569/4338187904_ca54f8b151.jpg

After we watched another hockey game, this time it was the Edmonton Oilers against the Colorado Avalanche (one of mom's other favourite team),  The Avalanche won 3-0 which made my host even more happy.

Tomorrow we're going to watch the Super Bowl, can't wait :D!

Montreal, QC, Canada - 7th February 2010

By: imahockeynut

We started off the day with some breakfast. We had a very delicious donut and some yogurt.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4053/4343892508_bfa345343a.jpg

After breakfast, we played some video games. That's me playing Animal Crossing: City Folks, talking with one of my neighbours.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2509/4343896098_ecb0cbc915.jpg

Before the game, Mom got some snacks to eat. One bowl has Lay's Ketchup chips and the other bowl has Miss Vickie's Jalapeno chips. I preferred the ketchup chips.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4011/4343182699_b9a22aff07.jpg

Mom also gave us some beer to wash down the chips.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2688/4343179347_0b6415398c.jpg

Then we watched the game. It was a good game overall but Mom was disappointed that her Colts didn't win but she said that there was always next year.

Montreal, QC, Canada - 12th February 2010

By: imahockeynut

After mom showed Munchy Moose around, we had a Manakish, (which is a pita with chesse and other stuff). This one was a plain cheese one and it was really good.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4046/4353350013_8d7804a25b.jpg

Later we watched the opening ceremony of the Vancouver Olympics. It was a spectacular show. This pic shows the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police or the "Mounties".) are carrying in the Canadian flag.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4068/4354104624_10841e21eb.jpg

Next, the Natives welcomed the world to their lands. This shows one of the tribes but I forget which one.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4013/4354108022_49762c10d1.jpg

Next came the parade of nations and when the Americans came in Munchy Moose cheered for them.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4063/4353367277_8f43bc4e2b.jpg

When Canada came in, Mom, me, and Regina all started to cheer. They came in last because they were the host nation.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4064/4353374301_bf5248ef3a.jpg

Next was the cultural part of the ceremony. This segment of called "The Hymn of the North".
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4019/4353377743_7396a1e1cf.jpg

After, the Governor General of Canada, Michaelle Jean declared the games open.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2773/4353385803_7ef548efc2.jpg

The lighting of the Olympic Cauldron usually is a one person job but they had 4 people light it (well 3, since there was a technical error).
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4069/4353393233_3c30ec7e46.jpg

This was a spectacular night and historical one too. This was the first time in Olympic history that the opening ceremony and the Olympic cauldron was held in an indoor stadium.

Montreal, QC, Canada - 14th February 2010

By: imahockeynut

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Today was kind of a sad day because my sister Regina is leaving tomorrow for the Netherlands so today is her last day here. So we decided to throw her a going away party.

First we ate some delicious nachos.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4024/4357687599_d07af3b490.jpg

We also had some delicious French wine. I know, not the usually choice of drink with nachos.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4037/4357679817_eacdd6545b.jpg

For dessert, we had some Valentine's Day chocolates, also very delicious.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2684/4358430038_68920a78a5.jpg

Later we watched some of the Olympics. First we watched the Ladies' 3000m Long-Track Speed-Skating. Canada's Kristina Groves won the bronze medal WOOOHOOOO!
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4043/4358441386_544c11392a.jpg

Then we watched the Men's Freestyle Skiing-Moguls Finals. It was a very good competition. Here's Bryon Wilson of the Us, he was 3rd in qualifying and ended up winning Bronze, good for him!
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4051/4358445588_de338b0f1f.jpg

Then came Alexandre Bilodeau of Canada. Guess how he finished? 1st! All of Canada is celebrating now because that is their first Olympic gold on home soil. I know that me, Mom, and Regina were jumping up, crying and screaming because he made history. We were all amazed because we witnessed history.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2726/4358452786_23ca28e120.jpg

Time to continue the party  ;)!

Hi Mom,

Today, my sister Regina is leaving today to start her own journey. I was sad that she was leaving but I'm happy that she's starting her travels. She didn't leave without saying good bye though.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2743/4360686609_cd7f1f819f.jpg

Me and Munchy Moose gave her a good bye hug.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4004/4361431920_cfb9572324.jpg

Then we both waved goodbye as she climbed into my envelope.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4019/4360694263_c22a984245.jpg

Me and Munchy Moose cried a little when she left but we both hug each other and thought that she is going to have the time of her life.

Today we met a new TV, his name is Cpl.Flapjack Jr who happens to be my new little brother. He was a little shy.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2634/4367341530_c5dd9bed08.jpg

His shyness didn't last though and became fast friends. We won't be hanging around a lot  because he's going to be leaving for Austria soon. In meantime though, we hung out and talked about traveling.

By: imahockeynut

Today we got a surprise from Mom, we're going on a trip! The destination is still a secret but we are going away for about a week. Here is me, Munchy Moose, and Cpl.Flapjack Jr with our bags packed.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4037/4401715204_3099d88253.jpg

Later at the airport, we had some dinner. A delicious burger and fries.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4006/4400953681_c4d3973ca3.jpg

Then we wash down the food with some Canadian beer.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2734/4401722022_d3c17b08f1.jpg

Mom finally told us  where we are going, or at least kind of. She said that we were definitely going to Europe and we would be flying to Paris first but that it won't be our final destination. Here's a picture of me with the airplane we are going to fly.

Munich, Germany - 21st February 2010

By: imahockeynut

Guess where we went? We're in Germany! Here we are waiting for the train to take us to the centre of town and to our hostel.

I would of taken pictures in Paris but our plane was late and we had to rush between terminals.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2719/4400972871_2f20a4c6fa.jpg

The train that we were on is called the S-Bahn. It was a pleasant ride which took about 40 minutes.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4036/4400975243_03e168db16.jpg

WE got off at Central Station and tried to find our accommodations but we got lost. Since we were getting hungry as well, we decided to stop at this nice cafe to eat. We had some pizza and orange Fanta. It was delicious.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4064/4401744674_90e56e48b3.jpg

After finishing our meal and consulting a map, we finally found our hostel. Since we were so tired we relaxed on the table in our room and hung out.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4069/4400982371_e963e4292b.jpg

Later we went to Pizza Hut for dinner where had more delicious pizza.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4038/4401002557_1d48f8e2d3.jpg

After dinner we went back to the hostel to sleep because we were so jet-lag.

Munich, Germany - 22nd February 2010

By: imahockeynut

Today we went to the Old Town of Munich. First stop was to Marienplatz where the square is named after the patron saint of te city (the Virgin Mary). The little gold statue there is of her. You can also see he New City Hall and on it's facade you can also see the Glockenspiel, a mechanical clock that performs a miniature tournament. We tried tp go see it but we went at the wrong time.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4050/4401007645_900f4280a5.jpg

Here's me with a street sign that says Marienplatz.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2426/4401796082_8f13e812e9.jpg

After browsing in some shops, we sat down and took a break. It was kind of slippery walking to the beach but we had no problems.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4032/4401044337_fba0473092.jpg

After our break, we continued walking until we ended up at Max-Joseph-Platz, which the square and the statue behind me was built in honour of Bavaria's first king, Maximillion I Joseph.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2786/4403893263_9b27307471.jpg

Behind the statue is the Nationaltheater, home of the Bavarian State Opera and the Bavarian National Ballet
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2701/4404646110_30b0af02c7.jpg

Next we went to the Residenz or the Royal Palace which was the home of all the Dukes, Electors and Kings of Bavarias during their reigns.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2797/4403910045_e891b2ce0e.jpg

The other side of the entrance.

The entrance to the inside of the palace.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2704/4403923267_8f93ef5a63.jpg[tv]

After about 3 hours walking around the palace, we sat on a bench outside to catch our breath. It's hard for us TVs to walk around for 3 hours straight with little legs like ours but we had fun.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4033/4404691036_c2e6fbdcff.jpg

After our mini-break, we walked up north towards Odenplatz. On our way there, we noticed this cafe called Nespresso with an ad with George Clooney in it. We were all surprised because we didn't think that we would see George Clooney on an ad in Germany but we thought it was cool.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4007/4404704946_2bc062206b.jpg

Finally we reached Odenplatz, First we saw the Theatinerkirche or the Church of St. Kajetan. The church contains the tombs od many of the Bavarian royals.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4068/4404713690_c80ba7b93d.jpg

Next we saw the Feldherrnhalle a tribute commissioned by King Ludwig I to the Bavarian Army. This also where Hilter's Beer Hall putsch failed.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4004/4404724088_95ee0df133.jpg

Later we tried to go see a movie but when we arrived we were either way to early or way to late. We also tried to find this sushi restaurant but apparently it doesn't exist anymore so we ended up at McDonald's.

While waiting for our meal, we had some nice cold beer.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2690/4403989373_8d278d23c0.jpg

After we browse though some souvenir shops and just walked around. Then we sat and relaxed at cafe, drinking some Orange Fanta.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2753/4404757414_5799778212.jpg

Then we started to read a book about Agatha Christie. We were so comfortable that we stay for the rest of the afternoon and evening.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4049/4404761410_3b180f3565.jpg

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4021/4404775382_4ba73b13df.jpg

While we wait for the train, Mom brought some snacks that we could eat and take on the train with us.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4025/4404004897_967cec3d6a.jpg

Finally the train arrives and we're on our way. It was an uneventful ride and we TVs fell asleep and didn't wake up until we got to the hostel.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4026/4404782278_1247cc8b5b.jpg

Wonder what our first day in Berlin has in store?

Berlin, Germany - 25th February 2010

By: imahockeynut

Today we explored a bit of Berlin. First off we went to Alexanderplatz. We browsed through some shops and Mom got some clothes for my aunt and one of my uncles for their birthdays. Then we walked to the S-bahn station to go to another part of the city.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4022/4404788130_968447cfd9.jpg
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4024/4404797196_1ee663f99d.jpg

We took the S-Bahn to Unter Den Linden to go see the Brandenburg Gate. It is the only remaining gate of a series through which you formerly entered Berlin.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4025/4453046922_700e7233f1.jpg

Here's a view of Unter Den Linden which is a boulevard with posh cafes, hotels, etc. Though it has other stuff as well. You can also see the Radio Tower in the background.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2732/4453061990_a2f411d9af.jpg

We headed back on Unter Den Linden and stopped at a cafe to get something to eat. We tried some currywurst, a German delicacy. It's basically a sausage smothered in a curry sauce made out of Ketchup and curry powder. It also came with fries at the side. It was delicious.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4010/4452291287_0ff62aaefe.jpg

After our delicious meal, we headed off to Berlin Central Station for a change of scenery. We relaxed and had a coffee at a cafe inside the station for a while. Eventually we got sleepy so we left and went back to the hostel.

Berlin, Germany - 26th February 2010

By: imahockeynut

Today we started off our day with KFC. The fries were ok but the Chicken Caesar Wrap was awesome. Everything was fresh and there was even big pieces of croutons. Yum!
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4064/4452299985_bbd7e4790e.jpg 

We went to the East Side Gallery which is an outdoor museum that showcases the last remaining part of the Berlin Wall.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4068/4453097172_d2fb522d4f.jpg

The Berlin Wall today has been painted by various painters. Is is one part of the wall.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2686/4452368143_66d463e10f.jpg

Later we went back to Unter Den Linden to go to this cafe called Einstein.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2470/4453161042_806930678d.jpg

Inside, we had a caffe latte in a glass and some cheesecake. The latte was good but the cheesecake not so much.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2681/4452372839_bb78251e95.jpg

Later we headed south to Potsdamer Platz to watch a movie. The theatre is located in the Sony Centre.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2759/4453239676_7a8a566ce8.jpg

Since we were a little early, we decided to get something to eat. We ended up eating at an Australian restaurant.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4064/4453215152_4bf454765c.jpg

After dinner we went to go see Sherlock Holmes. It was interesting to note that movie theatres here have assigned seating which surprised me but we enjoyed the movie anyhow.

We didn't do to much today. We rode the S-Bahn to check out the rest of the city. Here we are sitting on the train.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4066/4453260838_8c2094ee1a.jpg

After we went to Burger King for dinner, not so bad.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4003/4453268148_9164d89215.jpg

I'm a little sad because tomorrow is our last day but we're going to have fun anyways.
