Visiting Canada again has been something I wanted to do ever since I left after my high school year in Maple Ridge, British Columbia. But it was a little harder than I imagined it to be. Getting a working holiday visa from Germany means taking part in a lottery. I initially wanted to go to Canada after I finishing university but it took me a while to get a winning ticket. In fact it took so long that I had to take a job because I ran low on money waiting. That turned out to be an adventure all by itself that involved learning some very important lessons and meeting some people that I grew very close to. But I did get it in the end.
