First days after comeback

The reality was little difficult after comeback. Right on the borders check in I had problems.I wanted to stay in Canada for 5 months, but they gave me visitor permit just until 4th of July. They saw my working record from last year, so they were afraid that I am gonna start working again. I tried to convince them that I am not gonna work, just travel and enjoy the warmer weather, but there was no chance.

So yeah complication right from the beginning. There is small chance to extend my visa if I would apply for it, but I am not yet sure if I want to stay longer. I cannot even open a bank account here in Canada just with visitor permit, so all the money have to take just from my Czech accounts, another complication. It’s probably good to say, that I have still savings from last year, even after Mexico + money from tax return (I got around 1500 CAD) + some savings from Czech, so I could stay in Toronto till September without working.

Another big thing was to find a place to stay, yeah again.:).I booked a room through Airbnb firs like last time, but this time closer to downtown. It was hard, I saw around 5 rooms but anything I would like. I tried contacting my previous landlord, but it was already full. I started to be a little bit down about all these “no” and unsuccess with a room, but fortunately, once I was walking through the area I liked I say sign on some house, with a free room for rent, I called the owner and finally found a room which fits me. It’s in Beatrice street, close to the big park, a little bit further from the subway, but I ride a bike again so I don’t need much of TTC.

So yeah hard start, but with place to live, I got my confidence back and It was right time to start “planning” trips around Toronto, one of the reason while I truly come back to Canada. 🙂
