I have spent my entire life living in the United States (with exception for this last month)
I can't really complain, it's a great place to live.
Granted, in the past few years, the economy has sucked,
and finding a job nearly impossible-
and don't get me started on healthcare.
But, overall, I am so fortunate to have grown up in such a great place,
California, no less.
It is surprising, however, that I have never really given much thought to Canada-
I started thinking more and more about Canada when I arrived in Germany.
After all, Canada for me, is a little like France or Spain to Germany.
So close, it's easy to forget they exist.
Montreal, for example, is a city I can actually see myself enjoying if I ever found myself craving city living.
It has history, outdoor activities, festivals, parks, and green living real estate options- something our world desperately needs more of.
Montreal seems to have it all- at least for me.
Minus the French speaking part,
I would be a little lost in that department.
Although I may never call Montreal, or any of Canada, my home,
it is a definite place to consider should the opportunity present itself.
One thing I have learned since I moved to Germany is that anything is possible.
Just because I was born and raised in California,
does not necessarily mean it will be my home forever-
something I think I've already proven.
I have also learned that I have great neighbors-
neighbors I should visit if I ever get a chance,
maybe bring them a basket of muffins (or just some cash to support tourism, same same).
has anyone lived in Canada?
