After what has been, without doubt, the best seven months of my life I am coming home. I leave Whistler tomorrow morning and am spending one week in Vancouver Island before flying back to England.
It has been an incredible adventure I have been on. Arriving in Canada knowing no-one, with nowhere to live and no job, just following a dream. The dream materialised into something better than I could ever have imagined...
I have made friends from all over the world - Canada, USA, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, France, Czech Republic, England, Scotland, Ireland, Japan, Korea; I have managed 60 days of skiing in what is widely regarded the best ski resort in the world; I became a qualified ski instructor; I have experienced an Olympics and seen Britain win a gold medal live; I have funded my own lifestyle/living costs and proved to myself I can do it all myself. But most of all I have just lived the dream!
This last week has been tough. Last day on the slopes, saying goodbye to friends, packing my suitcases to bursting point and tomorrow saying goodbye to my housemates and to Whistler. But all good things come to an end I guess...
