So my husband and I have been living in Vancouver now for about 2 months. Our job as personal tutors brought us here, and it's the same job that will take us away from here in about 2 weeks. It is quite beautiful here, but the weather makes it almost intolerable. I am glad that we are not living here permanently. The views are great; the beach, the mountains, green trees all over the place. However, we have only had about 5 days of sunshine while we've been here, and that is not nearly enough for us.
I have to say that Canadians are quite environmentally consicous, and I love that. Everybody owns a bike, and uses it for transportation whenever possible. Everybody recycles everything! It is so great! I love to see a country so dedicated to taking care of the earth that God gave us. It is very inspiring. I think it is my favorite part of living here.
In spite of all the rainy days, my husband and I still find opportunities to go out and explore Vancouver. We have gone to a lot of parks and have hiked a few trails. Our favorite trail takes us by a dog park next to the beach, and we run it every other day. I love getting to see all the different types of dogs, and sometimes getting to stop to play with them .
Hello everyone on Care2! My name is Kat and I am new to this whole "living green" life and I thought I would share some of my thoughts about it on a blog on here. I've never really cared much about the environment before, but mostly because I was too concerned with myself. As I have gotten older I have learned that life is not about me, which has been an amazing discovery that has completely changed my life.
I should probably share a bit about me as my first entry on here. I am married to the greatest man in existence. I am so lucky and blessed to have him as my husband and couldn't even dream of anyone better than him. We have a great life together and love adventures. Right now we are on an adventure traveling around the United States, and pretty soon we will be traveling to Canada as well. Our best friends on this trip are our High Sierra backpacks lol. The reason we are able to do this is because we have the best job ever!
My passion in life is writing and I try to do it as often as possible. It is actually the main reason I started this blog lol. I also love to read and take pictures. My favorite pictures to take are artisitc landscape photos. The earth is so beautiful, isn't it?! My husband and I love to collect these on our travels and we have quite the collection. It works out because we both love to drink coffee as well . Right now I am reading a book called Halo by Alexandra Adornetto and it is wonderful! I highly suggest it to anyone who loves reading YA novels. That is all I have for now. Until next time, stay green!
