Toronto Ontario to Canmore Alberta

Toronto Ontario - Canmore Alberta via Greyhound Bus ( 30 day discovery pass)
Trip length - 2 days and 9 hours

First experience in traveling by bus in North America. I read allot of tips in the internet about traveling by bus, I have taken note of it and used it but these tips I have are from my own experience.

1. Make your itinerary clear and take note of the bus transfers and length of lay-overs.
2. Bring food most of the stops are fast food chains. My food suggestions are Trail Mix, veggie snacks, sandwiches, water, and fruits.
3. Pack very light and you don’t have to bring a sleeping bag. If you are hosteling most hostels do not allow sleeping bags (fear of bugs) they provide sheets, towels and blanket already. For my 45 day journey i brought just 5 shirts, 2 under shirts, swimsuit, 4 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of underwear, 2 trousers, 1 long sleeve shirt and a jacket. Laundry service are available in most areas.
4. Avoid drinking coffee. Its a diuretic and will make you “pee” all the time. There is a toilet inside the bus; however, its so difficult to use it while the bus is moving.
5. The bus can be cold so be prepared. Neck support is good, small blanket for the bus. I used my long sleeve shirt as blanket.
6. Use the stops to stretch arms, back, legs and neck. The bus stops 3-4 hours.

    Canmore is a great place! Lots of hiking! http://www.tourismcanmore.com/activities/ I recommend Georgetown Inn http://www.georgetowninn.ca/ great food!! and The Hostel Bear http://www.thehostelbear.com/ its walking distance from the Bus Terminal and is in the heart of the town.

Law of Attraction

Law of Attraction-
There are many who are starting to get attracted to the Law of Attraction. With the top rating multi-million sales of the Secret and the many Self- help seminars like the Landmark Forum. I want to share my experience regarding this.

Here's a quote from...
Abraham: You did not come into this environment to create through action. Instead, your action is meant to be a way in which you enjoy what you have created through thought.
Esther Hicks

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he..proverbs 23:7

Ever since I remember I have always wanted a perfect life and I strive for perfection. I looked inside me and tried to change my heart from within.. I even attended self-help seminars and bought so many books. But my longing was deep.. so deep that people, knowledge and philosophies, etc cannot fill..

So I got outside help to fill the gap.. relationships, alcohol and even drugs to dull the deep need for significance and p…

Luis L. Pantoja Jr. THD

I went to a memorial service for Pasto Luis Pantoja a commemorative Prayer meeting hosted by GCF-Peel. It was a touching event for I only met Pastor Luis once here in Canada during a church picnic last month. Its a pity I did not get to talk to him.

In the prayer meeting I heard so many funny, meaningful stories about this great man. A man greatly loved and for he loved much.

Epitaph for his cremated remains: "A handful of ashes now vaulted in this corner, with nothing to boast but grace from his maker"

I happen to read his Limericks..

Limericks on my life

Limericks are short verses generally but not always funny. Here are some about my career

Once on fire, in a suit and tie
By the hand of God and the will of man

Now he's fired, in sackcloth retired
By the hand of man and the will of God

The Lord has given, He has taken away
I tread the path, He leads the way

Flip the new page, blank with no stain
God in my old ag…
