Actually I think this thread is running out of steam. Perhaps we could discuss the result of the Tottenham Hotspur - Newcastle United match today instead?

OBAFEMI MARTINS! The new black and white No. 9 hero!

Mensch! Verdoppelten Bedeutungen macht das Leben frohlich, oder nicht?

Och ungefär där tar min tyska skrivkunskap slut men jag kan istället svara på svenska.

But that wouldn't be fun.

I hate the fact that I understand german better than I can write or speak it - unless I've had plenty of bottles of Kölsch then suddenly I am pretty fluid.


Now, what do you mean no-one can love me... I mean YYZ?

Well, it's one of the worst airports in the world, especially on the international arrivals side.

Ich bin froh dass Du auch in schwedisch fliessig bist. Moechtest Du lieber ueber Henrik Larssen reden?

Having been stuck on Schiphol for 24 hrs going out and 12 going back I can easily say it comes second after brussels. Brussels airport is so complicated I nearly missed my connection. Mind you they were rebuilding it.

Du meinst ja Henrik Larsson, der Fussball spieler, genau?

Ich bin kein Fussball fan. Eiskunstlaufen oder Pferde Sport sind fast anderes.

I must have had beer while I was sleeping.

Everything in Brussels is very complicated, I think everyone who's crossed Europe by train has got off at the wrong Brussels station, that's just the Belgian way. Unnecessary complication isn't a difference between Brussels and Toronto though, before I got used to collecting francophones at YYZ I lost a couple of elderly ones because I didn't realize that French speakers arriving from Europe come out of the domestic arrivals door (as if they came from America). Brussels is less bad because it has the internet, you can download a map, Toronto doesn't.

I'm not sure if dbd33 reads any German, so I'll take the liberty of pointing out that you two have something in common. dbd, allow me to introduce another horse-person. YYZ, allow me to introduce dbd.

(Mods. Don't touch this thread after all).

Thank you!

And it's threads like these that take it's own life that can creat a bond between all of us - not just for relocation reasons but for (in)sanity reasons.

I know no German but, come to think of it, the real horse person in the house does and her boss, the stable owner, teaches it. Perhaps horses drive people to it.

Hey there.

Now you and I need to talk. When I eventually manage to get me arse over there and have PR I will make arrangements to have my horse flown over. I need to know everything there is to know about boarding a horse in Canada and how it works. I am looking at GTA area.

PM me for e-mail so we can take this off the forum.

Cheers

Will pm.

You might want to find the poster Tiaribbon, she has a horse farm. It's too far to board from the GTA but she has recent experience of bringing horses from the UK.

The local horse board is : http://www.equiman.com/

This one's better but not specific to Canada : http://www.chronicleforums.com/Forum/
