Travelling to Canada!

Can’t believe it – just a week ago I was doing a teleseminar for a US Virtual Assistant audience about using LinkedIn as a tool for your business. 30 mins after that I received an email from a conference organiser asking me to speak at a conference in Canada June 2009 – I accepted.

Our (my husband and I) trip is now booked and we paid our deposit yesterday to the travel agent – one whole week has passed and it’s all been planned!  We’re flying to Toronto and then will travel to Niagara to stay for the duration of the FoVA conference. Then we fly to Victoria and join a tour over there, run by an Aussie company to visit Vancouver, Whistler, Jasper, Lake Louise, Banff and then back to Vancouver to get on a cruise ship to go up to Glacier Bay and back before flying back home towards the end of the month.  And a long-time friend via email and phone, who lives in Vancouver has invited Graham and I to come stay with her and her husband for a night as well.

What a wonderful thing to happen in such a short space of time. It was only 3-4 weeks ago that Graham and I went to a presentation given by our local travel agent (who doesn’t have a website – will have to talk to them about that!) about a tour and cruise in Canada and we thought we might do that in 2010 – we didn’t think 2009 would be possible till I got the request to speak at a conference!

What a difference a week makes!
