4 months in

Last week it was officially 4 months since we left the UK. I can’t believe it’s been that long already. We’re at a bit of a funny stage at this point if I’m honest. We are both starting to get incredibly homesick right now, but do love living here. The weekends here are just great, the weather just now is amazing, sunny blue skies every day, and there are so many beautiful places we’ve seen already. But it is hard...

Droppin’ some dolla’

Last Wednesday, Nick and I went for what we thought was a stroll round False Creek to get some photos at sunset. One of us had the idea of getting some shots from Kitsilano as the sun was going down. For some reason we ended up walking the entire way and we walked almost 8km! By the time we got to Kitsilano it was too dark to get any decent photos so we got the bus back and moaned about how much our feet hurt all the way home! We did get some...

Since I last wrote, things have been getting better, then getting worse, but now we’re on the up again.

When we moved in we noticed that a crane had turned up at Rogers Arena, this...

It’s only just over two weeks since we got to Canada and we are already missing home. We’ve spent the past year talking about moving here and as soon as we get here we miss home! So much so that we’ve done everything we can over the past few days to make ourselves feel as though we are back in the UK. Weirdos I know! The other day we finally had the internet turned on in our flat, it’s taken a while because of the Easter...

A tough few days

Posted by on Mar 31, 2013 in Settling In | 11 comments

We’ve been quiet on the old blog front recently as Nick has been ill, we’ve been moving into our new flat and just not doing very many ‘fun’ things. Plus we’ve not had internet in our new flat for a few days due to the Easter break (great timing). I’m only able to post this by tethering with my phone. Tuesday we went down to the ICBC to get our British driving licenses exchanged for Canadian ones, an exciting...
