Canada Trip Day 20: Flying to Calgary

2 July 2010 - Today marked the end of our backpacking trip as we were flying to Calgary to catch the Peaks and Parks Tours organised by Brewster Tours. We checked out from HI-Montreal and went across Boulevard René-Lévesque and waited at the bus stop adjacent to Bishop Street for Express Bus 747. Bus 747 took us to  Montréal-Trudeau airport, costing CAN$7.

Me and mum waiting for the bus. Thank God they had benches for us. Our bags were so heavy and we were far from finishing our trip.

By now, we are familiar with the self-check-in kiosk

We had Subway before we entered the departure gate

Was happy there were power points and Wi-Fi access at the waiting terminal

Me reading The Next 100 Years by George Friedman. An interesting book which brings new thoughts and some maybe crazy to the reader about the future from current world situations including some sci-fi stuff that may really happen.

This time around, my sister had apples instead of chocolates for her dessert in the plane.

I had carrot sticks instead.
