I Love Seattle!

A very very late post about my trip to Seattle back in April! Who realized how close to Vancouver the city of Seattle is!? Well not me until I moved to Canada. In fact, I didn’t know much about the place apart from knowing Grey’s Anatomy was based in a hospital there. (By the way,…

Vancouver Update!

You can tell I’ve been busy as I haven’t uploaded a post in quite a while! This whole ‘settling into a new country’ thing actually takes up quite a bit of time. When I first got here and was staying at the hostel, I was doing so many activities or meeting new people that I…

I’m Moving To Canada!!

That’s right, you read correctly, I’m off to the land of Maple Syrup, Snow and Ice-Hockey! Unfortunately out of those three things, I only like one of them…. I don’t do well in the cold and I’ve never played any type of sport on ice before, let alone sat down and watched it on TV….
