O Canada!

It's been a long time since I last came to Canada - eight years in fact. I skipped the last family trip here due to a lack of holidays (and money), but a wedding this time around has made it an obligation rather than choice. Not that I mind of course since I've never had anything but a good time here.

I don't get to see my cousins here that often (I did when they used to live in Pakistan), but for some reason they don't seem as strange - a side effect of being constantly connected via the Internet I think. Bizarrely yet understandably I still see them as they were that long time ago, as I'm sure all here do us, so I'm guessing there will be some surprises in store.

Edmonton is a small place, and our time here is always family rather than tourism focused. As such, I've come armed with lots of personal entertainment - S3 of Battlestar, a DS packed with games and I intend on hitting up my cousin on her Twilight collection too. I've also got a date to see Harry Potter (I didn't watch in the UK specifically to watch it with one of my cousins) amongst other small thigns we're gonna do. That said there's usually no time to do any of that stuff anyway, even less so with the wedding and all, but you never know.

I had half planned to check out Toronto and Montreal but it seems that domestic Canadian flight prices are pretty prohibitive. I'll probably settle for Jasper or Banff instead. For this first week though, all our attention is solely on the wedding.

It's gonna be an awesome holiday!
