Fee’s Travel Diary

Monday, 05 Jan 2009

Location: Vancouver, Canada

MapHi All,

Thanks for visiting my page and welcome to my first report!

I arrived in Vancouver on 2 January to the familiar faces of Jenny and Robyn who had visited the Hobart Deloitte office in July - September 2008, holding a big WELCOME FIONA BEVEN sign at the airport!! I spent an hour and a half or so in the immigration line, but got into Canada without any trouble.

There was a lot of snow over the weekend (which is apparently out of the ordinary) and temperatures have been reaching a top of 1 degree! Snow has been settling in the city and causing havoc with traffic and public transport.

I have been put up in a small but cosy apartment (see photos) in the city which is about a 20 minute walk from work. Since arriving, I have had a bit of a look around the city, have been out for dinner and went to a farewell party for Jenny's sister.

I started work today, but am not booked on any jobs until next week, so I should have a fairly easy transition to the Vancouver office!

I have joined a dodge ball team and games start this Wednesday, plus I've entered into a curling competition on Saturday which should be good, so stay tuned for some more interesting posts!!

Love from Fee xoxo
