One of my dreams is to travel, just to experience other cultures and I guess to find out where I belong . Well on June 24th, I travel for the first time by myself to the wonderful country Canada. From getting on the plane and entering the country until the day I had departure was an experience.
The plane ride was appropriately 6 hours. During that time , I was able to reflect and enjoy the wonderful and fluffy clouds in the sky just to pass the time. I think what I like most about flying you get to see the beautiful sunset and also the country at night when the lights are on. It look so pretty.
While in Canada, it was like a new world. What I’m used to was so completely different. The weather was different, when I was there although it was summer. The temperature was a range of 13 degree Celsius to 27 degree Celsius. Therefore, I was constantly wearing a jacket but eventually my body get accustomed to the temperature that I didn’t always had to wear a jacket.
Driving on the right side of the road, it was so scary since I’m accustomed to driving on the left side of the road. The roads are wider and there are various speed limits on one road. The distance in getting to point A to B is much longer than I’m accustomed to , that I slept on most of the drives lol. The transportation was very reliable, the bus came on time and what had me surprised is the people line up in a single file to board the bus. And if you’re catching more than one bus or train you ask for a transfer ticket which eliminates you from paying again at the next destination. Going on the train and street car was another first for me.
The people is so warm and friendly, I assume since Canada is a diverse culture . The people are willing to learn where you came from . Them love to have a conversation and make you feel welcome to there country. You just feel the love. One thing I notice that these people love there animals especially dogs and cats. But what shock me the most was people bring there dogs to the mall like really . It was a surprise to me but also I realized that dogs be quiet and well behave . So for me there was no dancing around trying to get out of the dog way lol. Yup I hate dogs lol. And also these people carry them dog’s for a walk no matter what time of day it is. In fact ,the treat them dog as a human you will think that dog’s have more right than a human being lol.
One of best memory is going to Montreal, when you enter the island of Montreal you convince it an other island you visiting . The atmosphere is so different compare to Ontario. In Montreal the people are billingual therefore, there speak both French and English. But I realize them prefer to speak French. When I was in high school I study French for six years. I was always wondering why I was learning this subject for but it came into used for the two days I was there. But I learn something, speaking French push me out of my comfort zone and I prefer to read it than to speak it. But it was a good experience.
In conclusion, Canada didn’t disappoint me. I had learn so much about myself, the culture, food, places of interest you name. But most of all I had enjoy my stay and the experience that came along with it.
