13 Things I Learnt In Canada

May 10, 2016

Just landed back in Melbourne after a phenomenal 29 hours of travelling back home after 10 days in Canada with Darts. Here are a few things I learnt while being in the land of the Canucks for Canadian Music Week.

1. Canadian Music Week was an awesome experience, and everyone we met was incredible. Thanks to everyone who came to one of our showcase gigs.

Thank you, @thegreathall ✊✊✊ #CMW #DartsInCanada

2. If you’re a vegetarian, United will just serve you reheated curry, bread and butter regardless of what meal it is. Everyone else got pancakes or omelettes for brekkie but I got curry, curry and more curry. Curry. I love Indian food but fuck, I don’t think I can touch curry for at least a month now.

3. Dilly Dally are incredible live.

4. Black Lips are also incredible live. Heart eyes for days.

5. Playing three Darts showcases gigs in one day = lots of taxis and eating tiny meals at weird times.

6. Canadian museums are glorious. Managed to get to the Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, plus The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

7. Men in Toronto and Melbourne dress completely differently. (Hint: skinny leg jeans.)

8. TSA love smashing locks.

9. Montreal is a city after my heart.

Vieux-Montréal 😍😍😍 am totally in love with Montreal.

10. Canadians are really, really, really good at making French toast.

11. Dirty, melting spring snow is still super exciting to an Australian.

SNOW! ❄❄❄ This is what Spring in Canada looks like.

12. Customs officers will laugh when you declare a food list that contains: maple syrup, maple tea, maple bacon fudge, maple popcorn and maple cookies. This happened to me in Australia and the States.

I think this is a Canadian OREO? πŸπŸπŸπŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ #DartsInCanada

13. The Los Angeles > Melbourne flight is the 23rd longest non-stop commercial passenger route currently in use in the world. This made me feel better for feeling like a whiny person trying to sleep on a plane. But at least the Dreamliner plane is not the worst place to spend 15 hours on.

All #CMW shows done. G’night 🌜 #DartsInCanada
