What have I been playing at ey? I’m pretty sure I’ve repeatedly started posts saying I need to sort them out more often, then don’t… But wait, I’ve just remembered exactly what I’ve been playing at, which is PLAYING. Basically having the time of my life in the best country ever and some well deserved rests in between.
This is the last of the video posts I can put up without having to actually MAKE a video first of all. I’ve been getting slacker on filming, as with the old tale of you can’t always FILM and DO at the same time, and then even more lax of getting the footage onto my computer… and the laxness of my editing of the footage I have already is comparable to a 70 year old porn whore’s… well, choose a hole. Running their mouth as well.
That was a positive start AGAIN wasn’t it?? Now to the rad part…
Our second guided outing in Montreal – La Fountain
With this one, and probably all of the Canada little journey videos so far, I can pretty much just let it speak for itself. But I do have to point out that the entire time we were in Montreal, we were sorted out beyond all recognition of the term, maybe more like mothered, as well as informed, guided, educated, kept in the loop, and put politically straight, by a girl we had never met before, and only knew us from a couple of sentence description Kian wrote about himself on a Couch Surfer website. I didn’t read it myself, but it must have been a goodun.
Coach Surfing is the WAY, and I am so up for doing it again as soon as we’re in another place we don’t already actually have a couch of our own. Though looking over now, I’m reminded that what we actually have is a wooden frame with no cushions. Every single person we met while ‘surfing’ was so hospitibal I felt bad that we wern’t paying them for the pleasure.. oh yeah, that’s a point.. You don’t pay them! They just OFFER. They let strangers stay in their house for free. No catch. Apart from don’t be a total dick please, I guess. So obviously it was touch and go when they met us, but their warmed to our dicks!
Just check Couch Surfing out for sure if you’re traveling at all, if you’re willing to meet new people and be friendly then it’s the tits. If you’re not then fuck off and stay at home maybe? Being skeptical by nature, I was unsure what to expect and couldn’t figure out what the home owners were getting from it. Now I know it’s just about good people wanting to share a good time, I’m now skeptical that a wave of utter nobs will ruin it for everyone else by attempting to squat or just being turds, so get at it before the assholes inevitably pop up.
I must admit this wasn’t the greatest or most attraction-filled footage I managed to get, but this is when every day was blowing me away and definitely seemed worth filming, and I’m so pissed off that the one moment I missed was when the skies literally exploded with tsunamis from above out of nowhere for about 20 minutes, then back to blazing heat.
