What a week it's been! We came home from our 16-day trip to eastern Canada and New England on Sunday 10/12 and have spent the whole week juggling the normal post-vacation stuff (laundry, bills, neglected work, etc) with Trevor's Independent Study assignment. He finished his 49-page travel binder, then I helped him prepare a one-hour presentation (!) that he is giving to his class today. It's been a lot of fun, but really intense.
Here is the first part of Trevor's Travel Binder, starting with the cover:
Each evening, Trevor wrote a summary of the day's activities. On Saturday 9/27, we flew from San Francisco to Toronto, then took a taxi to our hotel. Trevor's summary mentions that the hotel was not expecting us, but it does not mention that the hotel was already completely full even though we were holding papers in our hands confirming our stay. They ended up letting us sleep on cots in their boardroom. Not ideal.
Part of Trevor's assignment was to conduct interviews of his traveling companions each day of the trip. The Question of the Day for 9/27 was "What are you looking forward to?" It was really interesting to hear each person's answers.
On Sunday 9/28, we took a hop-on-hop-off bus tour of Toronto. It was fantastic. Toronto was safe, clean, friendly, interesting, beautiful, and child-friendly. We could easily have spent a week there.
The Question of the Day asked "What did you like in Toronto?"
On Monday 9/29, we took a bus tour to Niagara Falls with stops at some interesting places along the way. The highlight of the day was taking a Hornblower Cruise right up to the falls. It was incredible.
The Question of the Day was "Describe Niagara Falls in one word."
I'll share the next part of Trevor's Travel Binder tomorrow.
