The 1st of December away from home

Today is the 1st of December. Only for about 20 more minutes, Mountain Standard Time. I’ve been looking forward to this day, although it has been somewhat mixed together with a tiny bit of a feeling I think can be something close to regret.

5 things to do in Edmonton

Here we are, in Edmonton – the capital of Alberta. By first glance it feels like Edmonton’s rival Calgary might be a more fun city to visit, but we thought we’d give Edmonton a chance – and we haven’t regret it after spending three days here! Since the weather might not be the best (I…

I got my dream job in Toronto – and didn’t take it

Let’s face it – you need money to travel. I have a lot of tips and tricks on how to travel on a really small budget, but you will never get everything completely for free. Therefore, going on a Working Holiday Visa to Canada (or any other country) is the perfect opportunity to both explore…

We met Stanley at the Hockey Hall of Fame

Here it is – the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. The home to so many stars and role models, and to some people that we (Fredrik) don’t like at all but who’s made a great impact in the world of hockey. Do you remember that I told you it is quite important to me…
