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!
But life on a farm is far from playing with animals all day. There are things to be done, lots of them! That’s why Chris and I helped fix the fences. 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!
There’s a reason they call Saskatchewan the Land of the Living Sky. If you don’t get it from the pictures, it’s time you book a ticket to the unknown province of Canada!
