Farewell to Nova Scotia…

Good morning, Baltimore!

Design

Yep! You read that correctly. I’ve travelled south from the sea bound coast and have settled in Baltimore, Maryland in the ol’ U.S. of A.

Listen, I’m as surprised as you are. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a devout Haligonian (now as much as when I first arrived seven years ago). I will continue to proselytize the virtues of Nova Scotia to any and all during my tenure abroad — don’t you fret about that. Alas, a research opportunity for my partner arose here that was too good to pass up. So, for the next 2 years, I will be blogging about life as a displaced Canadian (with every intention of returning to my home and native land).

Despite my heartbreak when leaving NS, I’ve decided to embrace this experience with open arms. I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to feeling a wee bit culture shocked here already. It’s so interesting how close we can be geographically, yet still be so uniquely different cities. (And we both know my politics don’t align with the current US agenda…to put it lightly.)

I’ll also be continuing to work on growing BlogJam AtlanticΒ and will keep you apprised of all the exciting developments we have this year! Have you registered yet? Click here to do so now!

  1. I can’t wait to follow along on your adventures! (Even though there is a teeny part of me that is crying, “We miss you Krista. Come home immediately.”)

    It’s going to be great!

    I am excited to see what you do with your back yard. πŸ˜€
