I'm sure I'll terribly miss Vancouver and everything that goes with living here. First off, I have to part with Mateusz (fiance) and what's more, Vancouver is the most perfect place to live! I've travelled quite a lot in Europe and none of the cities I've seen appealed to me as much as Vancouver. Downtown area, parks, walks on the Seawall, the ocean, the mountains, the people... I will miss thee!
Of course, when I first arrived in Vancouver in October last year everything seemed so different and overwhelming... We virtually moved to the other end of the world and every little thing reminded us that we were in 'The New World'. It's so funny how the smallest thingies are different here than in Poland: the plugs of course, the taps, DVDs, getting off a bus, washing machines and dryers, bed sizes, painkillers, buying contact lenses and alcohol, gas stations... I could go on and on.
Overall, these couple of months have both been challenging and wonderful. I left my parents' house for the first time to move in with my fiance, furnished my first apartment, learnt to climb, snowboard and rollerskate, met new friends, experienced being a foreigner, switched to the Canadian/American accent, became more tolerant and aware of who I am and where I come from, saw unforgettable sights and started to truly admire Mother Nature, spent my days thinking and doing nothing, laughed, cried and loved to the bottom of my heart. Now I have to go back to the daily grind of work/uni, just as I left it almost a year ago.
I will continue blogging from Warsaw, only not that often as I'll have less free time to spend on that. Sorry if this post seems a bit off or too sentimental, but it's just my way of saying goodbye. Thanks for stopping by and have a great one! xxx
