Hello, and Welcome to my blog!
I am Danielle and I’m from Sydney Australia. Married to a Canadian with an 8-year old son we have lived in Brisbane, Australia for the last 10 years.
We recently made the move to the wilds of Canada (well downtown Toronto).
A question we get asked a lot since arriving in Canada (in Winter) is Why? Why did we leave the warmth of Australia for the cold of Canada? Canadian’s kind of look at us like we are strange when asking this question.
In short, because we can! … We are fortunate that due to our married status we can live and work in either Canada or Australia. Our little family has lived life in Australia and it’s time to give living in Canada ago and for our son to experience growing up in both Canada and Australia.
We love to travel and basically work to travel. It has been a long time since my husband has lived in Canada and it is a country neither of us has done much travelling in so we are looking forward to new adventures and exploring.
Snow … for me a big draw card is the weather. I am a winter person, I love all things winter. Having lived in a tropical climate for the last 10 years the year round heat was killing me. I need season changes regardless of how severe they can become.
I started this blog as a fun way to keep in touch with family and friends with updates of our new adventure and hope that others may find some tips or information if they are taking a similar journey.
I love it when I know people are actually reading the blog so please feel free to message me with any questions you may have and I will see if I can help. Comments on the blog posts are also great and welcomed (as long as they aren’t trollish because then I will hit delete, delete, delete)
As school was usually an excuse for a good old gas bag and catch up with friends please forgive my terrible spelling and grammar.
