Settled in Vancouver properly

Since I started to write that post (I forgot about it for weeks) there has been some changes. I have a job at last! Managed to get into a company that specializes in Electronic Medical Records, similar to CRM, but medical specific this time. Won’t name them as I prefer to keep this blog and work very seperate, but I will say that it’s a great place to be working and I have some fun co-workers (quite a few of them Kiwis).

I’m still in my flat and still on the inflatable bed, and I’m still doing the Grouse Grind, but I can’t for much longer as the snow is coming. One evening I was sort of trapped at the top. You see, descending on the trail is far harder than ascending. It’s better to download on the Gondola. But the line was 45 minutes long! So I went sight seeing.

Quite a summit!

Now that's quite a shot. The great sky, the summit downwards, Stanley Park and Vancouver! You can also see the US!!

The weekends and weeks have gone back to being a bit quieter now that I’m not properly travelling any more. I’m still making friends here but they are coming along, being in work helps. I’ve started planning quite a few things, for example, I want over the next 12 months:

  • Permanent Residency
  • New flat, to myself, not living with anyone unless they are my significant other!
  • New furniture for that flat
  • New PC
  • New car
  • Holidays everywhere!

Hardly easy but I’m back on London money and living here!

There is one more batch of photos to show you, these ones shot on the BlackBerry. All of False Creek.

Anyway, I’m still alive and still enjoying it.

I won’t be updating the blog as much while I’m just living day-to-day here… but trips away, significant stuff etc will still go up. Keep reading and subscribe by RSS or Atom folks!
