Oh well my boyfriend is Canadian but from British Columbia, so I have no idea what people are like in Ontario! I trust that you guys are nice though
But I don't feel great about leaving Paris, even if it's just for a year, and I'll be spending most of my time in Montréal.
I'm not used to overly friendly people... hope I won't act too rude or anything haha.
GRAVY on their FRIES?? I knew the part where vinegar came into play (still can't get over it) but gravy... oh man ^^
hahaha. awww, i bet you'll be fine. i think canadians are just generally very nice. they're very kind and friendly, but still a little more reserved than americans seem to be, so they'll not be all over you too much. i remember i was a little overwhelmed when i first came here (everything seems way bigger than in europe- cars, roads, buildings, meals, people) but its also really exciting!
have you ever travelled out of europe before? i've been to paris (for a whole week!) and i think you'll be suprised at how different, yet the same, things are over here. if you're anything like me, you'll love the snow in the winter... for about a week (when its windy, its reeeaaaalllllyyyy coooooooold!!!).
yep, gravy on fries... and cheese as well. they pour the gravy over the cheese to make a big sticky melty mess. bleurgh! they call it 'poutine' (but according to an old french-canadian i know, its nothing like real poutine at all). but there is plenty of very tasty veg*n food in the stores here as well.
how exciting for you! i've not been to montreal (well, i've driven through it, but not stayed there ), but i've heard very good things about it. you should try and get to Toronto too- and go up the CN tower, and see all the other cool stuff there, and i'd reccomend that you definately go to Niagara Falls as well, its very impressive.
