don't get eaten by a grizzly bear or whale
I graduated from university previously and didn't wanted to start straight into the work life. So I booked a flight to Vancouver and got a working holiday visa for a year in Canada. I didn't stay in Canada very long before I did a road trip down the us west coast. I flew to New York. After I was almost broke a looked desperately for a job in Toronto. They even rejected me as a dishwasher for whatever random reason. But life often has better plans so I ended up in Montreal having a great and intense summer. I did another road trip, crossing Canada two times in a Toyota echo. I picked cherries in Creston and worked on organic farm in Pemberton, which was probably the best experience I ever had.
What I enjoy: open-minded, caring people, hanging out, television series, movies and music, tasty food and wine, picnics, I love festivals in all kinds, long walks, hiking, bikes tours, arts, concerts, theater, raves, relaxing in a garden, baking, coffee shops....
Am Ende wird alles gut! Wenn es nicht gut wird, ist es noch nicht das Ende.
All's well that ends well.
