ThanksCongrats! I grew up in Toronto, but no longer live there. Miss it dearly. The pandemic's made it impossible to get home this past year to visit. Things are getting rough there now (hospital ICUs are nearing capacity from what I hear). Hopefully the city manages to get through this current wave relatively quickly. And then if we're lucky maybe it won't be too long before we can all safely travel again -- you can get that trip in, and I can finally make it home.
My wife was born and lived about 2 hours from Toronto until she was 7 and has always wanted to move "home"
We looked at Toronto and the cost of living was just too much for us
Her parents had visited PEI several times and always talked about how beautiful it was so it always held a special place in her heart and we were both able to find jobs relatively easily
I tease her we need a shirt that says from Prince Edward County to Prince Edward Island!
Yeah, we've been following the Ontario news too and it's scary. One of the things we love about PEI is how seriously they have taken the pandemic and how well contained they've been able to keep it.
I mean, she isn't enjoying quarantine all alone and it'll suck when we get there and can't get within 2m of her for 2 weeks but their case numbers show the wisdom of their approach.
The funny part for us is we live about 6 hours closer to Toronto here in VA than we will in PEI!!
But our daughters really want to go there one day to the zoo and a Blue Jays game.
