My name is Ndrika and I moved to Canada from the UK in 2012. I had an abosuletly loved Canada but in a strange turn of events I got hit by a car and broke my leg of all things. I arrived back in the UK in December 2014, just in time for my birthday!

This blog is mainly about my Canadian escapades. There’s loads of help and videos to set you on your way, whether your applying for an IEC visa or if you’re just coming to Canada for a lil’ holiday. I plan on returning to Canada. I learnt to ski there, lived in the Rocky Mountains on an animal sanctuary, couchsurfed my way across Toronto and rubbed shoulders with  cowboys at Calgary Stampede. It’s been eventful. Luckily for you, I’ve been filming everything along the way and there’s loads more to come.

I’m currently building this new website but in the meantime for lots more videos, check out my YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/CandidCanada2013 and my older blog http://candidcanada.tumblr.com/.

Also, if you moving to Canada and have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at candidcanada13@gmail.com.

  2. Hello Ndrika,

    I tried emailing you, but it said your email address doesn’t work. I’d like your opinion on something. I’m a Canadian, and I’m in the process of applying for an Ancestry Visa for the UK. I’m thinking of moving to Edinburgh, Scotland or London (I currently live in Calgary, Alberta), and I’ve heard positive and negative things. I’ve heard that the pay out in the UK is way worse than Canada and the rent isn’t much better, which makes me nervous. The reason why I’m going is that I need to do something for myself and I need an adventure. I have a Bachelors in Classical, Medieval and Renaissance Studies, and a Masters in Library and Information Management, and many of my friends said I should definitely go out to the UK, since there’s way more history out there. What is your opinion? Is it worth living in the UK for a while, or should I stay in Canada?



    • As I love traveling, I may be biased but if you want adventure why not. The history in the UK is so detailed and preserved by dedicated governing bodies that you’ll be spoilt for choice. I found Canadian rent less but that is compared to London, where rent is super high.

      In the end it’s your decision. When in doubt I always make a pros and cons list and take it from there. Try not to have regrets and do what you think will bring you most happiness. Sorry I can’t give you a defining yes or no answer.
