Canada is by far one of the most beautiful countries I’ve ever seen. It has everything; nature, big cities, amazingly nice and genuine people, and GREAT food. In two weeks, I had it all. From the Timbits at Tim Horton’s, to pancakes with Maple Syrup and authentic Canadian meals. I went paddle boarding, took a day trip to Niagara Falls, saw a Blue Jays game, did tons of yoga classes and got eaten alive by mosquitos. Montreal felt like Paris, only different, Toronto made me feel very small (in a good way!) and the outdoors just overwhelmed me with it’s greatness, beauty, and adorably cute animals. And the best thing: I’ve met the nicest people here. A few days ago I was seeking shelter from the rain and I met a very nice lady who was having a day out with her granddaughter. We started talking about the city and she asked me about my travels. When the rain stopped she hugged me saying she thought what I was doing was so brave. All that almost makes me forget why I started this trip in the first place…
… To write! These past weeks have been great, but I’m a woman on a mission, so this week I started conducting my very first interviews. And so far so good. Schools haven’t even started yet, but still some amazing educators have been nice enough to invite me in their homes and work places.

Many many other places are on my list still, unfortunately the world is too big for my dreams (at least for now…).
