The experience of moving to a new city can be ever so exciting, nerve-racking and outrageously adventurous. On the other hand, the experience of moving back to the city that I once called home, returning to the familiar yet unfamiliar, can be ever so dull, uninteresting, and blah.
6 months ago when I decided to move back to Vancouver after living in Toronto for 8 years, I didn’t expect it to take so long for me to get accustomed to this place I considered “home”. Sometimes I feel lonely here in my “home town”. Most of the time, I just feel like I need to make an effort to rebuild a solid group of friends that share the same interests and hobbies as I do now.
And so I’ve heard Meetups are a pretty good way to meet like-minded people in a new city. Which brought me to my first #YVRFoodie event at Fortune House BC.
