And so a new chapter starts on this adventure that is life. Last day in Nice, Cote d’Azur – November 12, 2014. For the third time leaving (mostly) everything behind, moving to a new country: Canada. After a lot of frustration and disappointment, malgré le bon, I decided to quit France and move away. Although I have no regrets and am overall very happy with my time in France I leave with a somewhat bitter after-taste. Maybe it’s because I had so many high expectations following the 5 previous years in Finland, maybe it’s just because France is a disappointing country for expats, I don’t know. But the fact is that Canada seems a better place to settle down in terms of culture, society, habits, community, and government.
The new place is called Sherbrooke, located between Montreal and Quebec City, and is about 40min from the US.
More on Sherbrooke later.
