Chantel Ens’s Travel Diary

Friday, 05 Nov 2004

Location: Poole, UK

MapRight, so since I've been here for two months I figured I should write another diary entry, I'm going for one a month, wow, what a goal!

First of all I want to say Happy Birthday Mom! Yes, now everyone that has access to the internet and stumbles across this page will know that it is your birthday today! I promise to bake you a cake when I get home!

On to other stuff . . .

Today is Guy Fawkes Day! If you walk out our kitchen door onto the patio and look across the ocean/harbor you can see about three different fireworks displays going at once. There are thousands of displays going on across the country tonight. (Although they are not nearly as good as the ones we saw in Vancouver!) Anyway, I'm not really sure why the celebrate today like they do, Lindsay thought he was some kind of hero but I quickly gave her a brief history lesson and told her that he actually planned to assassinate the queen (those videos were educational, thanks Mom!). Right so we went to Poole to watch a few fireworks go off. It was neat, I tried to take some pictures, I think maybe two turned out, I'll put them up tomorrow if remember, if not I'll do it on Sunday.

Then we went to Pizza Hut for dinner. Great stuff. I am amazed how busy it was for 9:00, I guess a lot of people eat dinner later here, I don't know if I'll ever be able to get used to it.

Tomorrow we have plans to venture out to Bath to see . . . Roman Baths! Hopefully I'll be able to take a bunch of pictures and put those up as well. And we also want to go shopping at some outlet stores. Yes, the store of my life here, shop, shop, shop, spend, spend, spend! Everything is so expensive! It hurts me to spend money!

I need to take off that picture of Lindsay that I took in Scotland, she isn't too happy about me putting that up here, so if anyone wants to see it I'll e-mail it to you! (Just kidding Lindsay, I won't, I swear!) She's always reading this thing and gets uptight whenever I mention her! Ha, ha! (I was just kidding again Lindsay, I promise!)

And finally -for all of you worried about me missing my flight home . . . don't worry! I won't! Ha, I learnt my lesson and besides, I really want to come home! As long as I get snow and bologna for Christmas that is!
