Last Edmontonian titbits…

I almost forgot the last few photos that I have to share of our trip to Canada… I don’t really have a big story to go along with it… so this is more of a photo-post!!! 🙂

We ate in an Irish Pub…

All you can eat fish&chips – & I was not able to eat more than one helping – the portions are crazy HUGE!!!!

A Portobello burger – but no patty – what “man” eats a burger without meat?? 😀

I loved the vintage-ey chandeliers…

Watched this landscape change many times…

Could it be a cold front??

Drank coffee at Second Cup – waaaaaaaay better than starbucks!! …

We were totally thrown of by the time it (eventually) gets dark…

This was 21h15…

Took photos of sweet nothings that will mean something only to me/us…

I was fascinated by these posts everywhere displaying events and shows…

Crazy about the old painted signs on many buildings…

What we paid for petrol – or should I say gas??

Yet another different landscape…


Ok, so to sum up our trip to Edmonton, Canada – – – We enjoyed it very much, saw many new things, experienced different stuff in a short time, went for interviews, saw snow, drove on the wrong side of the road – – –

… & signed a contract to work in Canada!!! 😀

So, if all goes well/fast (we are still awaiting the approved LMO) – we will be moving/immigrating to Edmonton end of this year!!! 🙂

I’ll keep you posted!!! 🙂 **

    This is very exciting! If you would like to be shown around a bit, let me know! I’ve lived here my whole life. 🙂

      Oh yes… I’ll certainly be doing that!!! I am very excited about this, but seeing that I am not a “change” person, I am at the same time quite nervous & scared!!! Any help or offers like this I’ll take!!! Thanks so much!! 🙂 **

    Xandré, that’s very exciting news! Glad you both enjoyed northern Alberta!

    Hmmm, if you may be moving to Edmonton by the end of this year, I may have to stop by South Africa this September, as Cape Town is high on my list. Yes, I know you’re in Pretoria … 😉

      I love winter!!! But I have to admit – I’m scared I’ll be eating these words!! I’ve heard the winters are killers!!! – & of course it is nothing like what were used to here!!! 🙂 **

    How exciting for you. Can wait to see how it all goes for you. 🙂
    Those posters everywhere, we have that here as well, I thought they were a universal thing. The petrol is very cheap, we are paying around $1.50 per litre here, sometimes it goes down to $1.28, but that is very rare. Loved the burger. 🙂

    These photos are amazing!!! Small captions with so much left for intrigue. Love the name, Second Cup. Burger with no meat, that’s ladies’ burger right there. 😀
    $25 for 20 what gallon? If so that it’s gallon, it’s cheap then, eh? Sorry, I hate conversions.

      Thanks Rommel!!! In the end the mushroom burger was super tasty!!! – although HWTHB is still quite not over the fact that he ate a vegetarian burger!!!
      No no, not per gallon – per litre!!! But even that for us was very cheap!!! 🙂 **

      It was almost more tasty than a meaty burger – for real!!! 😀 Don’t worry – I’m planning on getting you there ASAP for ALAP (As long as possible) 😀 !!! **

    I love the colors in your “poster totem.” Orange buildings? I though the Canadians were all too prim and proper for that. Guess I should be traveling more!! 😉

    There are lots of vegetarians and vegans on the western side of this continent. So a portobello burger has no meat. But you can order a burger and ask for the mushroom to go with it. Now that is delish!!

    We do call it gas, short for gasoline, down here in the states as well. We also drive on the right side of the road. To us, the side that’s left is the wrong one. 😉
