Happy Friday everyone:) This week I thought I would share with you Our 5 Most Asked Questions About Moving to Canada. Over the years we always get asked the same questions so this week I thought I would share with you how life was for us. Obviously it has worked out as over four and half years later, we are still here in Canada! Unfortunately this is not the case for everybody, for some the move is easy, for some it’s not. For some they settle into life in a different country easily, for some they don’t. So here it is, the questions we are asked the most about making the move to Canada!
Welcome back to my blog:) This post is all about our weekend camping in Banff! If you have already watched my vlog, you will have seen what we got up to already but I thought I would also write a blog post just to cover the finer details about where we stayed etc. so here it is!
Camping in Jasper was surprisingly a lot more pleasant than I thought it would be! Considering my last camping experience was at Oxygen years and years ago, I thought that camping with bears would be much worse, but it turns out, camping at Oxygen was!
I am by no means an expert on camping but I have compiled a short list of tips that may help any first time visitors camping in Jasper. I definitely recommend it, it is lots of fun and made all the more pleasant by having clean bathrooms and hot showers on the campgrounds!
As we knew we wouldn’t be settling in Toronto, we decided we would take a trip to Niagara Falls before we left for Edmonton. We are soooo glad we did. It is so beautiful and definitely worth a trip to see. We rented a car for 3 days and made the short hour and twenty minute journey to the Falls. Buses also run regular from Toronto or Richmond Hill and are about a two hour journey if renting a car is not an option for you.
Do We Stay or Do We Go?
We talked, literally, for years about moving abroad. We had always been keen to do a bit of travelling so when the opportunity came for us to move to Canada, well sure why wouldn’t we give it a go? And I won’t lie, our want to travel was not the only reason for upping sticks, we were in the midst of recession. So with no mortgage – frankly because the bank wouldn’t give us one – and no kids, there was no better time for us to make the move.
