Thanks for sharing your experience Alex, I really enjoyed reading it from start to finish. I am leaving the comforts of my friends and family here in Australia to go by myself to Canada and trade it all in. No doubt I have been having the “cold feet” feeling you mentioned but your chapter 6 about taking the uncomfortable path really sparked that excitement I needed and now I cannot wait to get on the plane and experience all kinds of new adventures. I guess I owe you a bit of a thanks, probably why I felt the urge to leave a comment but regardless I’m glad you got so much out of your trip, I can’t wait to see what experiences I’ll have. Thanks again!
