Ok, so I’m a sucker for another Kiwi. Ive been away from home for near on three and a half years now, the last year and a bit of that Ive been based in Toronto, working at the Canadiana Backpackers and you just do not see that many Kiwis here.

So when a New Zealand couple walked through the door I just could not help but want to know more about them.

Trev and Bev(really that’s their names) are dairy farmers from Te Awawmutu. They came to Canada to watch their son, Brendan, who is part of the New Zealand free style Kayaking team, kayak the Ottawa river. Brendan has also Kayaked the Zambesi and part of the Nile in Uganda. You can just see by the way they talk that they are very proud of their son.

They loved the hostel and the atmosphere here and prove that you do not have to be in the 18-35 age bracket to stay in, and enjoy a hostel.

Maybe we will bump into each other in the Land of the Long White Cloud.
