Bye Bye Toronto. Hello Vancouver.

Well well well, what a mad mad few days myself and Clare had. We finally said goodbye to Toronto. It took a while for me to like Toronto, probably because of all the stress that was at the start (the stress may have only been in my head though) i.e. looking for some where to live, jobs and having to buy everything in the house (it came unfurnished). But after all the dust had settled, turns out Toronto is an absolutely incredible city, really it is. I know everyone who doesn't live there won't have heard a whole lot about the place, but trust me, it is, as north americans say, "Awesome". It's full of different cultures going about there day to day lifes' in perfect harmony (maybe not all the time, but definitely most of the time). So if you ever get a chance to go there, or even better, work there, I would highly recommend it. Plus we met lovely people, Brendan and Elaine, would be my favorites, friends for life, and that doesn't happen to often.
Now, I'm in Vancouver, and you couldn't get more far removed from TO if you tried, massive mountains and an all round more laid back atmosphere, seems like the perfect place to spend a Summer if you ask me. I saw two bears yesterday, and tomorrow I'm going to see Elbow play a gig in a church. Yes North America, it will be "Awesome".

.... now to find a job and a place to live.
