I met with all my old friends. We had fun, we talked politics, we talked experiences, we laughed, we drank, we ate, we explored, and we laughed some more. Toronto is such a beautiful city and incredibly underrated. I miss my time here.
I came to Canada for an exchange program 5 years ago, and tbh, I was extremely nervous and not excited for the semester. I had thought Canada was too far, I didn’t know anyone who was headed there, and I wasn’t sure if I would survive the cold. But, I still went ahead. What I thought will be a boring, non-exciting experience turned out to be one of the best times of my life! And I’ve always secretly made plans to go back (perhaps to stay longer). I went back recently, and felt like I was 22 again. It was refreshing, rejuvenating and an incredibly healing journey for me.
I went to smorgasburg to eat a lot of good delicious food and then headed off to meet up with Bella and attend an extremely dog-friendly party.
I went to NYC on a whim. It was an escape, a reprieve, and a time for me to grieve the temporary loss of something so dear to me. These are snippets from my time in NYC.
3 years ago, I travelled to Bosnia by myself.
I took an 8 hour bus ride from Kotor, travelling through the North of Montenegro and the mountains of Eastern Europe to get to Sarajevo. As we got to Bosnia, the linguistic landscape of my surroundings changed. It became multilingual – yet, all these languages looked similar..
