My trip to Canada – The Video


We’ve seen a lot during the two weeks in Canada, but then again, two weeks is nothing. Way too short to explore Canada as it deserves it. It feels a little bit like watching a preview of a really cool movie, but then in the second when the real movie starts – I was sitting on a plane back to Berlin.

I left a piece of my heart in Canada. And one day I have to go there again to find it. We’ve seen a lot of things but there wasn’t enough time to do many things, and that’s what I want. I want to spend so much more time in foggy towns, go fishing with the fishermen and eat lobster till my tummy hurts. I want to play with my rubber boots in the mud, see whole Canada passing by my bedroom window. I want to stand on the cliffs for hours and shout against the wind, want to see all different faces of Canadian sunrises, get lost in the wilderness and be scared to death by bears. I want to find out where to eat the best Poutine and if there are any more stylish cities than Montréal (Gosh, these people know how to look cool). I want to breath and live nature. Cook dinner above an open fire and count all the stars. And time. I want to have so much more time to inhale everything, let my heart skip a beat and never exhale.

More about Canada soon, but now I want to show you how I left a piece of my heart in Canada:

A huge THANK YOU to all the amazing people I met and especially to Adeline, my French twin, Kris, my brother from another mother, Alex, the Instafamous, who also made this gorgeous video and Sarah, of who I’m very envious as she will stay some more time in Canada…

Hi, I'm Yvonne. Travel addict. Guilty as charged. Right now I'm probably falling off a camel somewhere in a desert, getting a new tattoo from a monk in Thailand or am carrying my luggage through a river in the jungle. But just as well I could be sitting on my sofa in Berlin, in my pyjamas. Good girls to to heaven, bad girls go everywhere. Everywhere sounds much more promising. So be travelous and follow me!

  1. Yvonne, what I love most about your post is that you left a piece of your heart in my homeland. Given the size of Canada, it shouldn’t surprise you that only a fraction of Canadians have seen large swaths of the nation, let alone their own province, although Prince Edward Island might be easier to cover in a reasonable amount of time. My home province of British Columbia? I’ve only seen a small portion; I’d argue that’s a lifetime’s project, and a worthwhile one at that. Why I particularly liked your sentiment was that when I landed in Germany sight unseen in 2001 and left in 2003, a little piece of me got left behind there. The intervening years has seen more pieces left behind, and that’s a good thing. So, here’s to more pieces of you in Canada in the very near future. 🙂
