Several years ago I took a Greyhound bus across Canada and then up to the Yukon where I fell in love with the feeling of the north. I couldn’t stop thinking about the north and decided I wanted to live there, so when a job opportunity came up on the border of Northern Quebec and Labrador, I jumped on it. I was only supposed to go for ten months, but 3 years later I’m still here! The north has its own special feeling – it’s rugged and intense, cold and big. It’s the loneliest place I’ve ever been in my whole life, but that it’s also a place that has forced me to open up and be less shy, where I’ve met so many other friendly people, lost souls, and misfits, people seeking adventure, and people who grew up here and the north is their land and in their blood. It’s not always easy, it’s cold and there are a lot of things I’ve had to learn to live without like cellphones, decent internet, shopping malls, cafes, movie theatres and grocery selection, but it’s also a place where I’m come into my own in many ways, learned to value other things, and discovered that I was capable of doing things I’d never imagined. In this section, you’ll find posts about my experiences living in the north. I hope it will be helpful for anyone considering living or visiting in the north or anyone who is just curious to find out what it’s like.
