Travel Lessons: Things I’ve Missed

My time in South America is at an end. I can’t believe it’s over, I really just can’t, and in my mind I’m already planning my next adventure. But! There are some sweet, sweet things that I’ve fully embraced now that I’m home, including:

  • Flushing all the toilet paper. I may flush a whole roll right now, just because I can.
  • Walking down the street sans vehicular honking.
  • Wearing shorts, because it’s fucking summer in Canada.
  • After a year of not having a home … well, having a new place to stay for a while.
  • Clean fingernails. I’m not sure how it happens, but in South America, even if your hands are in gloves … your fingernails still end up dirty. Gross!
  • Thinking in one language.
  • Knowing what my money is worth.
  • Clean bathrooms. Enough said.
  • Having all the hot showers.
  • Drinking water from the tap. So fresh!
  • Maple syrup on my pancakes and extra cheese curds on my poutine.

Hola, Canada! I’ve really missed you.
