I'm thinking about moving from the UK to Canada after my degree finishes in June, possibly to Toronto. I fancy getting out of Europe for a bit and expanding my world experience. Have any of you been there or live there and do you have any advice or problems encountered there?
Good luck with the move. Can't really say anything about living in Canada but I don't think it's much different, but perhaps cheaper than the UK.
What kind of traditional food are we talking about here?
Cheers for your advice, by the sounds of thing I don't think it's going to be too much of a culture shock.
I don't live in, or anywhere near London, and would rather never live there to be honest. Toronto sounds loads nicer, haha.
To me, you all have stupid accents. :-P
Canada seems like a nice place to live though.
I'm no chav either. I'm from Leicester but currently in South Wales. In Newport actually. If you want to hear an odd accent, listen to that one, very strange.
I have spent a lot of time in Toronto, and I must say I really like it as a city. Very international, very clean, and the people have always been pretty friendly when I would go there.
Toronto is nowhere near as awesome as what most Torontonians think.
Vancouver, on the other hand, is every bit as awesome as everyone says it is.
(Except for the drivers. They suck. Oh, how they suck.)
Vancouver drivers, on the other hand, just don't give a goddamn. I know, it's a subtle difference, but it's there. It's like trying to predict what an asshole will do ("He's going to cut me off, I know it") vs. what a raving maniac will do. At least the asshole is relatively predictable.
But to answer Scott's question: The good drivers are probably the ones in smaller towns and out in the countryside, where they aren't pissing off and getting pissed off at their fellow drivers.
