We cannot wait to be there in Vancouver, seeing those awesome views all the time. I’m halfway there (ish) with my saving; Nick is pretty much there already! We need around £1600 to enter the country, but I’d like to have at least £2000. Bearing in mind we still have to pay for our insurance (around £200) and book our first few weeks’ accommodation before we go out there, I still have some way to go! I sold some things at the weekend...

Natalie and I took quite a big step on our journey to Canada recently when we finally booked our flights to Vancouver.

It’s now just less than 5 months until we leave, and the excitement is building every day! I think about the move around every 10 seconds. If we had the money now, I’m pretty sure that we would just go! But it’s really not that long away, and it just makes it all the more exciting. We have created a forum for people who have applied/are applying through the IEC programme, hopefully it’ll take off and we’ll get loads of users! There...

Beautiful Vancouver

When you decide to move to a new city, particularly if it’s in a new country, you naturally want to read and watch as many things as you possibly can about your soon-to-be home. I found the video below during one of these ‘must find out more’ moments and I thought it was worth sharing as it shows some incredible views of the city.
