Canada Day Long Weekend

Driving to Vancouver this weekend made me realize how lucky I am to be living in Canada. The mountains were absolutely breathtaking. Perhaps it's the way the light hits them at sunset and sunrise, or perhaps its just their majesty, but driving through them was truly awe-inspiring. It's easy to forget what the other parts of Canada are like when you remain in the same city doing the same job. It's so easy to take the rest of Canada for granted.

I know Korea will be a life-changing experience. The culture and food and customs will all be very different, but the coming year will give me an opportunity to live another lifestyle. It is my hope that my year in Korea will help me more fully appreciate what the world has to offer. But for now... I'm just going to enjoy Canada :)
