Hello! We are Emma and Stewart and in September 2014 we left England and headed off on a Canadian adventure.
Emma always dreamed of doing some long term travelling and working abroad seemed like the perfect solution to ensuring the money doesn’t run out. For a long time it was just been a dream but with the age of 30 rapidly approaching and therefore the ease of getting a visa reducing, it seemed like the perfect time to take the plunge. Fortunately she managed to convince Stewart to come too!
So armed with our working holiday visas we left Cambridge (and our 2 gerbils 😦 ) on 22 September 2014 and flew out to Toronto. We then spent the next few months exploring what Canada had to offer, taking in the sights of Toronto, the Niagara Falls, Algonquin Provincial Park, the Rockies, the southern BC interior, Vancouver, Seattle (yes we know that this is in the USA!), Ottawa and Montreal. This was an absolutely amazing experience and we are so glad we decided to travel before settling down and finding a job.
Our original plan was to live and work in Vancouver but plans change and we can now be found in Toronto with our foster cats. Whilst we are here we intend to make the most of it and experience as much of our new home as possible. We hope to use this blog to not only keep our friends and family up to date on what we’ve been doing but hopefully inspire others to travel. We read so many blogs on the run up to our trip that were incredibly helpful with the visa process and inspiring us on where to go and we want to add to that community.
Who is the Brown Bear?
The brown bear is Boris, our travelling companion.
Some say that he looks more like a black bear. We prefer to think of him as very, very dark brown.
