Hi everyone,

Once you reached the point of reading this, you will have noticed that I've decided to shake things up a bit by writing my blog on this cool website called Travelpod from now on. It allows me to include some of my pictures in my blog to make things more pleasant for you to read. Besides the medium, a lot of other things have changed as well since the last time I blogged. 

However the most important one is my accommodation. After 3 days of house hunting, Robbe and I finally found a place to call home during our 4 months stay in Vancouver. We now rent a beautiful basement suite in a brand new house, only 3 minutes away from school. I must say "lucky us", because Robbe and I really won the lottery with this one. 

Moreover the owner of the house, nicknamed David (since his Chinese name is too hard to pronounce), is one in a million. Communication might not be easy since he only knows basic English, but he might definitely be the kindest person one will ever meet in one's life. Although the house normally was unfurnished, he did us a favor in providing a boxspring, another mattress for the second room, a table, chairs, kitchen equipment,... 
He even offered us to use his mini-van to move our suitcases from the B&B to the apartment and he's at our doorstep right away whenever we need him. So thank you David!

Anyhow, the next the few days, Robbe and I went shopping at the local Ikea in order to finish the apartment and to get settled properly. The photos show you the result of all this hard work.

That's it for now. But don't be sad because the next one is going to be posted very soon!

Lots of love,
