Recently I've been getting an awful lot of questions about moving to Vancouver/a new city. I love it! People are starting to get excited about finding new things out there.
I try to answer all the questions as quickly as I can and apologies if I can't get back to you as soon as you'd hoped.... I will try to put a post together to answer everything. But for now I will start with this silly little thought. I think it's the most important piece of advice I can give:
The photo was taken on my journey over to Vancouver. The funny thing is I took it not knowing that some of my very good friends-to-be were sitting all around me, also alone, and in a few hours we would all meet randomly in the hostel, grow very close and get to fall in love with this city together.
Please feel free to use the photo above as incentive. Print it out and stick it to your wall, use it as your wallpaper on your computer, etc. That could be you sitting on a plane, flying to a new city, not knowing what's awaiting you but excited and smiling at the thought of someplace new. Someplace more exciting. You want adventure? A new city is a big place, it can't come to you. Go find it. Everything else will fall into place one way or another. But please, just go for it. I shiver at the thought of what I could have missed out on if I never picked up and left.
