I lived in Canada – specifically Toronto in the early 1990’s. I really enjoyed it – it was a culture shock as I had moved directly from a small village in the French Alps. From small village to large bustling North American city was certainly something.
I was also rather amazed at just how cold it gets! In France I lived in the Alps – we had snow – but they really had snow in Toronto!
I wish I had explored more of the country when I was there but I didn’t and it took me another 25 years to return. This time however I went to the west coast and I have to say rather fell in love with it. We loved Vancouver but we adored Vancouver Island and Victoria.
Canada is a huge country and deserved a lot more exploration in the future! I plan to visit Canada many more times!
