It is a year ago today that my Sister, Brother-in-law, Niece and Nephew flew over to visit us here in Canada.
I never expected anyone to visit us here, I hope they would of course, but transatlantic air travel is expensive so I didn’t expect it. When we were chatting on Skype in January last year and they mentioned booking flights to come over I had to restrain myself from getting too excited incase it didn’t happen but it was only a few hours later that my Brother-In-Law text me to say the flights were booked.
We had an amazing 2 weeks together and I am so glad they came over to see us. I loved showing them Toronto, taking them to watch a lacrosse game and to visit one of my favourite places, Niagara Falls.
Niagara Falls in particular was a very special time for me, I remember studying it during my geography A level at school and adding it to a mental list of places around the world I wanted to visit. My first visit there in 2007 was such an amazing experience for me and being able to share that experience with my Sister, Brother-in-law, Niece and Nephew a few years later was incredibly special, especially as I now live so close to it.
So today I am reminiscing on the fantastic time we had last year, and instead of getting sad because I miss them I am going to be grateful that they came over.
