Memories of Canada

Back in 2003, I had cause to make a number of visits to Canada, primarily to the eastern side, including Montreal, Ottawa and Quebec. Given that the gos to, I have a desire to make the move throughout the Atlantic and begin a new life there.

As a kid, my memories of growing up in the UK are of hot summers and cold winters. Something that seems to have changed beyond all recognition now. Perhaps it is a distorted memory, or at least the memory of a kid, but the idea of going back to seasons that you have actually been brought up with, appears truly attractive.

Although the winter seasons I remember as a child appeared cold, they are absolutely nothing compared to the winters experienced by the Canadians. The times I invested in Canada were mainly during the winter and it was extremely cold. Living in the UK, particularly England, brings the usual issue each and every year. One cold snap and the whole country grinds to a halt. Although the conditions in Canada appear inhospitable compared to that of the UK, they seem to cope far better than we do. It also is far more appealing than that of the UK, particularly with the Christmas Card scenes that are around every corner, thanks to the snow.

In stark contrast to the winter season, the summer seasons in Canada appear really hot. That is what appeals to me most about Canada. Sure, London is a fantastic city, however the idea of having the room to breathe seems really enticing.

This year I hope to go back to Canada and experience the openness of the country and of individuals there. In all the gos to I made there, I found the Canadians to be pleasant and really courteous. That is such a good thing to experience in today’s “no time at all for anybody” society we reside in. Something that sticks in my mind about the Canadians, is the truth they are so happy to be Canadian. In my viewpoint it is warranted and I can’t wait to make the hop across the Atlantic and experience some more of that Canadian hospitality.

For any Canadians who visit this site, I would love to release any thoughts you have about Canada and what is like to live there. Not only for me, however for anybody else who is taking a look at moving there.

The times I invested in Canada were primarily during the winter and it was incredibly cold. The conditions in Canada seem inhospitable compared to that of the UK, they seem to cope far better than we do. In plain contrast to the winter season, the summers in Canada seem really hot. That is what appeals to me most about Canada. This year I hope to go back to Canada and experience the openness of the nation and of the individuals there.
