Default 6 years Strong

Only seems like yesterday since I was leaving Manchester airport, watching P.S. I Love You on the plane and crying the whole way to Vancouver.
Leaving England at 20, It's crazy to think that I've spent my "adult" life so far in Canada. But after going back to Lincolnshire at Christmas I know I made the right decision in staying.
I think the hardest thing is finding friends that you can have a connection with.
Canadians as nice as they are don't really have the same sense of humour.
Funnily enough though my closet friend here in the lower mainland is French Canadian! Who'd of thought, the British and the French being buddies?!

Congratulations MapleJack! 6 years is a long time, especially in your twenties. I feel it's one of the best things a young person can do - travel and move to a foreign land - whether permanently or just for a while. The wealth of experience is great! I was 23 when I left home (never to come back other than for a couple of short visits in nearly 20 years), and I've loved every moment of my big adventure so far... and it still feels like one! Well done and best wishes for your future

Maple jack welcome to BE and very warmest congratulations on your 6th Canniversary!

Zhanna I cannot but agree with your sentiments, and although I love my son to the enth of his socks I certainly hope that he will have the spirit of adventure and get up and go, to go and find true independence and see a larger slice of life that travel enables.
