After our last concert in Europe we headed for Toronto/Canada!
The orchestra being split in several flights, WKH was on the group leaving the hotel close to lunch time. First thought was, I’d rather get to Toronto earlier, but then being able to excersize, practise and relax in the wellness area before leaving was great, too!!
Normally I sleep on all the journeys, but on this one I had to stay awake, if I didn’t want to have any trouble once I arrive at the other end! Talking with colleagues, reading books that I wanted to read for so long as well as some more studying of some quartet scores let the time go past rather fast and we arrived safely in Toronto.
Staying up helped and as soon as we arrived, I went straight to bed to get some sleep, pretending, that time difference doesn’t exist
Well, the next day was a free day and since there were enough colleagues interested, we had a tour organized to go to the Niagara Falls!! Getting on the bus with colleagues not heading for a rehearsal or a airport felt unusual, but all thoughts were gone in the moment we arrived at the Falls after about 2 hours on the bus
Not the greatest of weather and due to the time of the year, neither all attractions were available, nor all views behind the falls were visible, but it was very impressive and a great experience!!
Thank you very much to all colleagues and staff involved, who helped organizing and made this trip possible for us!
