The canoe slid into the water… After gaining my balance, I paddled, making the canoe swing from left to right like a pendulum. “The steering will be tricky,” I thought, as I tried to keep the canoe straight. Ash and I — both comfortable in kayaks — were new to...
Street in Vancouver
Every time you visit or move to another country, there are bound to be things that are different to what you are used to. I arrived in Vancouver on Friday after a 9-hour long flight from London. Since then, I've been mainly trying to sort out all the paperwork. From...
