3 Years Ago…

Looking it was March 16th, 2009, that I boarded a plane from Toronto and headed north to Nunavut for the very first time.  I was wildly excited, and ready for the next adventure–but really had no clue what to expect.  Like most people when I got ready to move north…I talked with 3 friends that lived in Nunavut asked advice of what to bring, what to expect…got lots of information.  This did help me but really the real learning happened after I started to experience things first hand with just living!

When I left Yellowknife  on Tuesday to head north to Cambridge Bay I met a family that was relocating there from BC.  It was really neat to see their excitement, about their move- and I was reminded about some of those initial shocks that I had that aren’t shocking anymore as I talked with them!   As we talked, they mentioned how they had read my blog…and loved my kamiks.  They were really excited to see them in person! I wish them all the best as they settle into life in Cam Bay.

I just looked back on my old blog Newbie in the North where I wrote about some of those experiences from my early days.  Now this isn’t a three year anniversary of me living in the north.  It’s actually an 18month one!  As most of you know I had an 18month gap living in Winnipeg from January 2010 to June 2011.  I honestly can’t believe it’s been 3 years since I’ve lived in Toronto and  lived in the same province as my family and friends. Honestly the past 3 years have gone by in a blink of an eye…

I’m excited to see what happens next in this adventure I like to call my life!

  1. Sarah, thanks for the mention! Your blog had been an extremely valuable source of information as my family was planning our big move North! The experience so far has been amazing and the community has gone above and beyond with welcoming us. When our transport failed to pick us up at the airport, a quick call to the local RCMP detachment resulted in two off duty members arriving at the airport within ten minutes to bring our copious amount of luggage to the house! Thanks again and we will continue reading your most excellent adventures… Troy C.
