A Canadian Thanksgiving from Abroad

Canadian Thanksgiving [PetiteAdventures.org]

It’s holiday weekend back home in Canada, and while we won’t be celebrating an extra day off here in England, we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving nonetheless. I have a plan for a small feast (with chicken, not turkey because that is just too much food for two people), as long as I can find some sort of stuffing and cranberry sauce substitutes. We’re going to eat like we never left the homeland.

But thanksgiving is about more than food (or so I’ve been told). It’s a time to reflect and give thanks, so I thought I’d give it a shot. Here are the things I’m thankful for this Canadian Thanksgiving.

Making headway at the bank.

Over the weekend, we made a tiny bit of headway towards finally (finally) being able to open a bank account, which means that within the next 2-3 weeks we might finally have home broadband (insert gif of Kermit the Frog celebrating here). I know they say life is about the journey, not the destination and for the most part I believe it; but when it comes to this banking/internet debacle, I can’t wait for the journey to be finished.

Beautiful fall days.

As I said in my newsletter (not subscribed? Get yourself on the list by clicking here: LINK) fall is my favourite time to travel. We’ve had some spectacular fall days these past few weeks that have given us the most beautiful backdrop to explore Leeds and the surrounding area. It’s been marvellous, and I hope that the English rains I’ve heard so much about, hold off just a bit longer so we can go on even more local adventures.

Family and friends.

Both near and far who’ve supported us and kept us up-to-date of the goings on, so we don’t always feel like we’re so far from here.

And you, my dear reader-friends.

To those of you who check back every day, week and month, thank you for taking the time to read my words and share your support, experiences and a laugh or two.

Happy Thanksgiving – or to those of you outside of Canada, happy second Monday in October!

    1. Hi Amanda,
      I’m working on a post about tips for expats/those living abroad and I thought you’d have great insights into this topic. Is there a way I can get in contact with you? Or, can you send me an email at petiteadventures@gmail.com and I can share the details? Thanks!
