Coming back home: Regina

In Regina by Virginie3 Comments

After three months in Costa Rica and another three in Mexico, it was time to stop home and visit our families. Chris and I also had some things to catch up on after half a year of traveling. That’s why our first stop in Canada was Regina, Saskatchewan. Let me tell you something about Saskatchewan: nobody knows either how to spell it or where it is. When someone asks us where we’re from in Canada, this is usually how it goes:

Chris: I’m from Saskatchewan. Stranger: Cool. Virginie: And I’m from Québec. Stranger: OH! Québec, I love Québec, it’s such a beautiful place.

So yeah… Not many people react when they hear about Saskatchewan, but a lot of them do when they hear about Québec. So let me introduce you to Chris’ farm and how cool it can actually be. I love going back for one reason: the animals. There are so many cats to pet and dogs to play with that there’s always something for the city girl that I am to do. Since I don’t know how to drive a tractor, I’m not always very useful. But that’s okay because I keep the dogs out of everybody’s legs!

Chris is never too busy to pet his favorite dog!

This is usually a three person job, but since I happened to be there, I got a job too. I was the staple holder. Not too bad for a City Girl!

  • Beautiful photos — and also cute ones, as I love the farm animals ones 🙂 I always end up taking pictures of my parents farm animals when I visit them too.

    It’s probably nice to be back home for a short bit before striking out next. Did I miss where you’re headed after this?

  • Thanks!
    We stopped in Quebec too and now we’re heading to Europe. Our first stop is Croatia 🙂

  • AH! Croatia is on my list; I’m half Croatian and haven’t been yet! — I can’t wait to see your photos and stories!!
