"My memories are inside me - they're not things or a place - I can take them anywhere."


Am back!!!!!!!!!

My trip was amazing....loved the drive both ways...it took me 21/2 hours to reach to Buffalo and I really had a good time with my friends....cherishing some old memories ..right from my school days till...date....! I had taken old albums...and we all were just talking and talking....it was really worth this long weekend!

"Own only what you can carry with you; know language, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag"

I was so surprised to see Tim Horton's in Buffalo...as I remember ...we used to buy Tim Horton's coffee (famous coffee and donuts...through out Canada you will see...), at the border in Niagara- Canada and then used to drive into US...as we never used to get any of those canadian brand brand ;)
But to my surprise while I was driving down the roads...saw this big board and I got so restless to try it out as ...my suspicion started...is it for real or something in the name of Tim Horton's someone is fooling.. lol ...but it was the same Canadian brand....to those who don't know....its a franchaise chain for coffee and donuts just like other coffee shops...but it has its own standards ...just like how McDonald's fries..something similar the coffee is just Tim's n nothing else like it :D,...difficult to get one ...its standard and the taste of coffee any canadian would describe :D
I remember how things were tough when I didn't even get a simple regular coffee in S.Korea ;) ! Those were the days ...:D

One thing was that on the Tim Horton's cup ..it was only English and no french ...:)

I did enjoy my whole trip and was kind a sad to leave my friends back and so I was driving back with my happy songs...to cheer up myself ;) and guess what...those who know...I-190 Hwy...which is a interstate Hwy and the traffic is very slow here ...as its near the border...and this guy behind me who was quite senior ...total white shiny hair..with sun glasses on ...dashed me when the traffic is not moving at all :O gosh!!! I thought what happened all of a sudden??? and the moment I turned back ...he said ..sorry!!! my situation was so tensed as I couldnt stop the car since it was on Hwy and on top what if my car is damaged...no matter what,... in that situation one good thing I did was I wrote down his license plate # and drove back with no worries...hoping for the best ;) ...reached home and first thing I checked was ...:) my car...its cool ...nothing happened...I was so relieved ...and it started raining heavly ..........so heavy that I just came out of my car and got in to my house and I was already soaked in water...:D
It was a welcome shower ;) to Toronto!!!!!

It is not raining to me, It's raining daffodils; In every dimpled drop I see Wild flowers on distant hills.
