    I drove through Saskatchewan 2 summers ago and I thought it was really pretty! We stayed near Moose Jaw. I'd love to go back and travel around someday! I follow tourismsask on instagram and there are so many nice spots there it seems.

    I probably passed you and now you will pass me ^^ I'm just off of Hwy 1 in Abbotsford.

    Hey there!! I have also been through Prince George! A long time ago, though.

    I also wanted to say that my husband is a WoT addict but unfortunately he is not the type of person to ever go on an online forum or fan website. So he will probably be looking at discussions over my shoulder ;) He is the one who chose "Elayne" for my daughter's middle name.

    Haha, not likely. I'm south east of Moose Jaw by a fair bit.

    Moose Jaw is probably the most Canadian name for a town ever. ^^

    Hi Juliya - nice to meet you! I really like the name you've chosen - both seem very WoTish :)

    Not going to deny it ;)

    The best part is I'm Canadian ... but as Dutch as they get (my grandparents on both sides were immigrants from Holland).

    Sorry for the double post. Thank you Cahalan Sedai! It is definitely based off of my real name and the last name is from a game.

    I approve of this! That basically means you have two reasons to be crazy. ^^

    (Also, double posts are smart when you're trying to reach a specific number of posts to become a Citizen. ;) )

    Tah-daaaah! :giggle I love manga as well. ^^ I'm an artist, and I love the different techniques and personal touches each manga-ka gives to their work.

    I feel like a lot of parts of Japanese culture are awesome, but based on some of the stereotypes, I wouldn't want to live there. Of course, they're stereotypes, and I don't actually know anyone from Japan, so I have no idea how true they are.

    Congrats on reaching 25 posts! :D

    Yes, I thought so from your avatar!

    I've had homestay students from Japan. They are high school students and are very polite and kind and always fit in well with our family. However I was just talking to my latest student (who left today) and she said for the most part, Japanese people are welcoming and kind to non-Japanese, but some people aren't. Also it depends on where you are in Japan. The area she was from is a lot more laidback. The only thing that would prevent me from living there is that the language is so difficult, especially reading and writing :cry
