I don’t know if I like you, but I sure want to

2016 is to date the year I travelled the most. Upon coming back from my year away and all those travels, I decided to follow my mom and my sister to Congo, the land of my ancestors. In hindsight I wonder if this trip would have been different, had I gone alone. Even China which... Continue Reading →

How not to apply for your PR

2 years, 1 month and 27 days after I first set foot in Canada I was able to claim permanent resident status. The whole process was fairly simple, but like always with me, there were also a few bumps on the road. If I have one piece of advice to give, it is to start... Continue Reading →

My Toronto for you

As I mentioned in the “On our way to Niagara Falls” post, my cousin came to spend a few days with me back in July 2019. After our day trip to Niagara Falls I decided to give her a little taste of Toronto proper. Since it was a Sunday we started the day with a... Continue Reading →

A viral Birthday trip

As I have mentioned before, I have a personal tradition that I really like: going on a trip every year for my birthday. Since I’ve been in Canada I haven’t really been able to stick to it, mainly because of work. My first job didn’t really allow me to take leave, for my second birthday... Continue Reading →

Javier, a guy I met upon my arrival in Cienfuegos is the one who handled my transportation and even my stay in Trinidad. After almost 2 hours I got to Trinidad, in the early afternoon, where Yolanda the owner of my... Continue Reading →

That time I almost missed Cuba

In 2016, after a year abroad I went back home only to realize that I wanted to leave again. The final destination would be Canada but I had a couple of stops planned first: Cuba and Mexico. After several months of wait and preparation July 10th 2017 finally came and it was time for me... Continue Reading →

Fàilte Dùn Èideann

A few years ago, I came up with my very own tradition: going on different trips for my birthday. In 2017 Edinburgh ended up being the destination of choice. The initial plan was to try something new, more specifically Liechtenstein but well the heart wants what it wants and I ended up going back to... Continue Reading →
