Let's talk
I can’t forget the vast landscapes, stunning scenery, wonderful wildlife and friendly people from the four years I spent living in Canada. I’ve explored the length and depth of the country, but my favourite moment was riding next to the pilot in a sea plane, listening to air traffic control whilst flying over the Gulf Islands!
