Wow! Prices have risen !
Apologies for no pictures for the next couple of weeks but I am writing on Mr Shoestring's mobile device whilst we visit USAShoestring.
One of the first things we noticed as we landed in Toronto was how much the pound has fallen against other currencies, this makes things 20 percent more expensive anyway, so the hotel room on the first night was a real treat that we will not repeat on this trip. However it offered a free dinner and breakfast service where we could eat some of the food, so that saved quite a bit. Next dat buying food for a picnic lunch made me gasp. We left the highway and went to a value supermarket and still spent nearly 40 Canadian dollars, a small pierce of cheese was 8 dollars, gasp !
Buying food for a week here in USA has cost over 140 dollars, which is awful, so I'm going to be working hard to bring that down.
Good news is that petrol is very cheap, we filled up once on our trip from Toronto and it only cost 40 Canadian dollars !
Talk to you some more tomorrow about what we find that is good value !
