Amsterdam

We were a bit confused about what we should do with the blog when we came back from Canada. We thought it was a shame to just leave it so we’ll continue to update it with our (non Canada related) travels! A few weeks ago it was 7 months since we moved back from Canada and what better way to mark it than to leave the country again…for a few days! We decided to go to Amsterdam to soak up a bit of different culture! We flew Easyjet there and...

Life back in the UK…

Posted by on Jun 26, 2014 in UK, Vancouver | 3 comments

I know, it’s been a looonnnng time since we did a blog post. The flurry of activity we had moving back home has finally died down now and I’m pleased to say we’re both nicely settled back in the UK. Leaving Vancouver was as hard as we thought it would be. We stupidly thought that moving out of our apartment and flying home in the same day would be a good idea, but it wasn’t! Not that we had to rush around or anything, but...

I was going to call this post ‘6 weeks to go’, but I thought I’d work out how many days it actually was until we moved back to the UK. As I’m crap with maths, I just Googled ‘how many days until 18th March 2014’, and I was pretty shocked to see that it’s only 43 days! I can’t believe we’ve been here nearly a year, and I also can’t believe that in a little over 6 weeks, we’ll be...

Winter in Vancouver

Posted by on Jan 7, 2014 in Vancouver | 4 comments

Since our last blog post (I know, it was ages ago!), quite a lot has happened! We’ve been holding off on the blog post for a while as we’ve been deciding what to do in regards to staying in Vancouver longer or coming home in March. But I’ll come to that later! The lead up to Christmas here was quite exciting, albeit a little weird for us not being around familiarity (my god I missed Boots 3 for 2 on gifts this year!!) The city...
