It’s official, I have been in Canada for one month.
While it’s been a good month, it has still been a little weird finding ways to adjust to life back here. I’ve been thinking a lot about the friends I made while I was travelling, especially the ones who had travelled or were travelling themselves. Those are friendships unlike anything I’ve encountered in Canada and I want to say thank you to those people.
Thank you for understanding my picky eating
You know that people come from different backgrounds and youre okay with it. You understand more than most people back home that I don’t like everything and it’s okay for me to have a different taste in food.
Thank you for becoming close over a few days
Getting to a new country is hard but meeting you guys makes it seem a little more exciting. We can swap stories of our experiences and venture out to explore together.
Thank you for not caring what I wear/look like
After a long day of travelling or I haven’t found a laundry place, you don’t care if I’m wearing the same outfit as yesterday, you understand that laundry and fashion aren’t exactly my priorities when I travel.
Thank you for not being offended when I don’t recognize you or remember your name
We all meet a ton of people and it happens to everyone. Some names get mixed up, and sometimes I straight out don’t recognize you outside the hostel. You never get offended, and chances are you’ve forgotten my name as well.
Thank you for understanding when I want to be cheap
Being students and travellers it’s costing us an arm and a leg to be here. While paying for a nice dinner or an attraction would be nice, we can go without if it means saving some money.
Thank you for understanding my situation
As lovely as it is to share experiences with people back home, I love sharing with you guys. You guys know exactly what it’s like to be in this situation and can appreciate a good travel story and have some of your own to share. We help each other learn about different cities and give advice on things to do and where to go. Without this advice I would not have had such an amazing trip.
So thank you, and I hope we will meet again someday.
