“Because of my husband, he was living in Canada and I was living in Bangladesh. We were in a long distance relationship for almost 10 years. He is an engineer and got a job with Suncor and moved here. I didn't want him to move here because I am a very city kind of girl and didn't want to move from Bangladesh to a small place. I have always liked the loud noise, lights, and busyness of large cities. His position with Suncor was a great opportunity so he moved here and then I realized I had to move as well.
I was very scared at first when I moved here and I didn't like it that much. Where I come from its always summer there are 11 months of summer and 1 month of winter.
I’ve never experienced -30 before. Now that I’ve experienced the summer and had the opportunity to visit other places in Canada I’m enjoying it. BEST part, no traffic! You can go anywhere you want, anytime you want! No buffer time required or no need to plan ahead to make anything on time and everybody knows everybody here! It feels like a big family!”
