Default We Finally Landed!!

Well we finally landed on July 24th 2010, it was all very quick feet barely touched the ground but WE DID IT!!
We landed in Vancouver and it was hot, and the minute I set foot on Candadian land I felt like I was home.
Immigration procedure lasted for approx 30 minutes, over the next couple of days, we got our SIN cards sorted, a small apartment. And my husband has now started his job, which he has settled into quite quickly.
We have decided to settle in a place called Langley, just outside Vancouver, we booked into a hotel there originally and the welcome that we recieved from everyone we came into contact with was amazing, believe me, I truly tried to find fault.....but couldent.
SO, I am back in UK tying up lose ends and I fly back September 24th, and I cant wait.
The only thing I will say is that when it comes to getting things like your Shaw TV or Phone put on, it can take a while but i am surprised at how settled my husband and I.
So glad we stayed the course......next stage......will the home sickness set in?......watch this space.

The only problem is that you quickly get used to it.

Welcome BTW.

What a fab feeling that must have been.....I just KNOW that I will be unable to hold back the tears of joy after such a long haul through the process so I bet it was emotional for you too.

At least you are onto the next stage of sorting things out here and the next ticket you buy will be a one-way one!

Many Congrats!

Congratulations!! It won't be long before you are here again ....

As to the tears, I cried when I was told by CIC call centre "Congratulations and welcome to Canada, your application has been approved" .. after 5 years they were the best words ever! I was so choked up I couldn't talk and just kept doing two "thumbs up" to my husband!

Congratulations again... and welcome to Canada

Thanks All.....Yes it is a great feeling to be booking a ONE WAY ticket! AND you know what? I am over the moon that I am one of the few people i know who did something about changing my life and making that move....WHAT A GREAT FEELING!

To those who are considering making that move, go for it! emigrating to another country is ROCKY! the journey is never smooth but things happen for a reason and I have certainly learnt alot about myself along the way, GO FOR IT!! and inspire others!

Selling a Ford Explorer if you really want to embrace the 'big gas guzzling SUV' experience - no seriously well done and enjoy.

I flagpoled today (took ages to get the GTFO list completed working out what we had sorted here and there) so I know exactly how it feels - great!!
