Finally here!

After lengthy good-byes and 12 hours of travelling i have arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with only a bag on my back and a pillow I stole from the airline! After waking up my room mate (who I had no idea was there at the time) I conked out on my bed just wanting to sleep, even though it was only 10.30pm Canadian time. I woke up at 6am, this is the first time I have ever experienced jet lag, and I never want to experience it again, and thought there is no point sitting around doing nothing, i have a long list of things to do and should get cracking.

Starting the day off in the typical Canadian way and going to Tim Hortons for a coffee and a croissant, then after getting lost multiple times I found the bus that would take me to Walmart, and what a nice lady the bus driver  was, she helped me count my money when i looked like a proper newbie and didn't know how to identify the currency :). One thing is have learnt today though, is that Walmart has everything a person could need. Its that type of shop where the bedroom sets are situated near the onions. Needless to say that was the only store i went to to buy EVERYTHING! Now, to set up my room and try and not nap. I will beat the jet lag and be fresh for orientation tomorrow :)
