This started out as our Canadian emigration blog!

We initially used it whilst visiting Toronto (June/July 2009), looking for jobs, exploring the property market as well as getting a feel for the city and trying to catch the odd snatch of ‘holiday’.

Then, when we  landed on Canadian soil more permanently, it formed a diary for our own reference, but also a way of keeping friends and family updated.

At about the four year mark it became more of an ongoing journal in which to record experiences and impressions, as well as a place to keep our photo albums.

Around this time, Gina also started a more conscious exploration into First Nations Culture and the issues around ‘Truth and Reconciliation’. So we added an additional blog section to reflect this, as well as supporting pages on indigenous culture.

Inevitably, as ‘life’ has taken over, the pace of our explorations has diminished somewhat. That said, we entered a new chapter in 2016, with a much anticipated return (at least for Gina) to rural life on the Rideau Canal, north of Kingston, Ontario. We are surrounded by beauty and have so many wonderful places still to explore!

Hopefully there will still be time, occasionally, to reflect on the richness of experience with which we have been blessed.
