For years, I have always wanted to experience life outside of the UK. There has always been a reason not to – boyfriends, lack of money, no one to go with, work and many more…. but the desire has continued to niggle at me. When is the time right? Well for me, it is now. So, I have applied for a sabbatical at work, looked into renting out the house and researched everything in a way that only a true control freak can.
This blog will be a mixture of my thoughts, organising and anxieties before I go, followed by a journal of my time and experiences abroad. At the time of writing this, I have not yet been able to apply for a Working Holiday in Canada – applications hopefully open in January – until then, I am coasting along packing books and becoming obsessed with bears, suitcases and Canada based trivia.
