Wow! 2012 has been a crazy year to say the least! All of the count downs have already begun recapping the year. This was probably one of the greatest last years, but 2013 holds a whole new adventure for me and my wonderful new wife. It is official, WE ARE MOVING TO VANCOUVER CANADA!
Such a beautiful city! It still has a west coast vibe, everyone was really nice and it has somewhat of beachy feel when we were up there. Almost like a San Diego mixed with a Denver. It doesn't feel like a big city, like San Francisco or Los Angeles, but it still has a ton of great shops and restaurants. Im excited because Whistler is only a couple hours away and there are a couple local ski mountains about 30 mins from the city. Our move will provide lots of great opportunities and give us the ability to experience a new perspective of living outside of the USA. I know, it is just Canada and we will only be an hour from the border, but it is still a new experience.
We are really excited to see what the next chapter of life holds for us in Canada. I especially will be exposed to a whole new healthcare experience in Canada. I know there is a lot of conjecture in the USA about Canada's healthcare system from supporters and critics. I have always lived a life of engagement to help determine my own perspective. I fully expect their to be pros and cons, but I think they will be less dramatic than people make it out to be either way. With diabetes in the USA, I am continually tied to having to be employed or risk losing my health insurance and therefore losing my ability to afford life prolonging treatments and equipment. I don't want to get political, I am just stating the facts. I hope to shed some light on my experiences with the Canadian healthcare system when I actual can experience it for myself.
Please continue to check back here for some of our updates in our move next month and our new experiences! 2013 here we come!
