I went on a trip yesterday. However I can't quite remember where I went. All I have is my diary entry for yesterday, but I'm struggling to make out where it was I went still. Maybe you can help?
Having arrived at the start, I was ready to start my journey. I found a vessel, and began.
To start, I let myself drift west as far as I could, which, looking left, allowed a nice view back at where I arrived. Finally I could drift no further and turned north before continuing.
I found myself surrounded, almost as far as the eye could see, by nothing but liquid. This was not what I was after on this adventure, and completely surrounded, I kept on travelling north until I found some sign of life.
The liquid gave way to ice but this allowed me to start fishing for food. I stopped for a bit to catch the fish I was after. By this point, I had drifted east enough to be able to turn around and start heading south.
I came across a isle, quite a long one. At the top, I saw things such as a cottage, and a tiger prowling next to it. Not wanting to be attacked, I kept heading south to see whats further down on this island.
I saw some walkers who seemed to be lying down. Looking up to see what they were gazing at, I saw the night sky, full of galaxies, as well as our own. I believe I saw a planet within our own solar system too.
Leaving this place behind, I started heading north again and come across another isle. This was a lot more chilly, with icebergs and snow. A sunset arrived and as it did, I saw a canary. Rather out of place in this chilly climate, I decided to bring it with me.
Having nearly reached the end of my journey, I came across one final stop. A small place, with another, different looking cottage, and a farmer alongside it.
Finally, I headed south to finish my journey, but stopped off to the east on the way, to quickly thank the owner of my vessel and pay him for my journey. I returned to where I arrived, very content with my adventure, having visited everywhere I could have.
What actually happened?
And, a challenge, can you draw a map of my journey?
I made this trip in person, and all of you have most likely made many similar trips in your life.
I travelled maybe around 500m in total. I have made a small edit which is also a hint.
