Yup. We've arrived safely in Canada.

Though on our first day someone drowned while we walking along the beach. My cousin helped pull him out of the water and do CPR, but he was convinced he was dead. Amazingly we heard afterwards that he had survived.

On our second day my cousin's wife was held up coming home because she saw someone jump off a bridge. We don't know if that person survived :(

On our 3rd day my cousin texted me to ask where we were as there had been a shooting outside his window. I thought he was joking until we got back from the mall and saw all the police tape. 2 people had been shot dead. Weirdly enough this sort of thing is very rare in Vancouver, especially where my cousin lives.

Very odd.


We're still looking for an apartment and are camped out at my aunt's for now.

Well yes...but furniture and stuff is cheaper here...and after having to get rid of everything I own in England i realised just how much junk I'd collected that I didn't need. I shall try to be careful not to do that again!

You ought to go around the really ritzy areas on trash day. Especially around fall pickup. You'll never believe what some people just throw out!

I have been informed that the Sally Anne up in North Vancouver (near where my cousin lives) has rather good stuff. It's just a question if I can persuade my other cousin to help me out with her pickup truck.

I signed the lease today so I will soon be a proper person with an apartment, internet and cable TV once again. just no furniture! I am wondering if I can make a trip to Ikea and have stuff delivered on the day we move in.

Yes...that is why I didn't bring a lot of my furniture as most of it was from Ikea.
