Hi Canada. I have a crush on you.

by Sherrie

It’s crazy.

We haven’t met yet, but I feel like a giddy school girl when I think of Canada.

Is it even possible to have a crush on a country?

For the last few years I’ve been toying with the idea of moving to London on a working holiday visa. The thing was that I didn’t feel giddy about it…

My guts had been yelling “CANADA. CANADA. CANADA” – it was like a terrible yet addictive song repeatedly playing in my head.

I realised that Canada was also an option so I decided to do some serious Googling.

All those beautiful photos jumped out at me.

Lake Louise. It’s supposed to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

I have made it my life mission to go to that beautiful lake. Even if it means I would have to either fly, train, bus or drive there.

Canada is one massive country. A LOT BIGGER THAN AUSTRALIA!!

Vancouver. Toronto. Quebec. Montreal. Ottawa. Edmonton. Calgary. Banff.

So many options, yet I have decided on Toronto – mainly it being one of the most multicultural cities in the world. And hey, it’s shitloads cheaper than Sydney.

I’m still figuring out the logistics of moving overseas, but I will be getting a Working Holiday Visa – otherwise known as International Experience Canada, which is for 18-30 year olds and can last up to 24 months.

I turn 30 next year and I need to get this sorted out AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. There’s no time to be a-wasted.

So I have a new mission:


I’ll be posting periodically to keep y’all updated with my mission to become a temporary (maybe honorary) Canadian.

I have a crush on you, Canada.

Yours in bacon and maple syrup,

I love this and yes, I definitely think you can have a crunch on a country you haven’t visited. I have a crush on half the world and I’ve only visited a tiny amount of it.
I’d also love to visit Lake Louise, it looks gorgeous!

It’s nice to hear this posting. Yes, Vancouver is beautiful place in Canada. I live in Vancouver.

Thumb Up!

I’ve heard so many good things about Vancouver! It’s on my list of places to visit when I’m in Canada – you’ll have to show me around someday 😉
