Inching Closer to Edmonton

My sister called me with exciting news about her family. Their family wanted to move to Canada. Her husband is a very good mechanic so when they saw a job opportunity in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada he immediately gathered all his credentials and mailed out his application. After one year of waiting, notice came offering him a job with a set start date in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
This surprise changed their lives as many requirements were required to be completed in a short period of time. He needed a physical check up, apply for a passport, purchase a plane ticket, and most important he needed to find an apartment close to work. It would take a few months for him to obtain a drivers license and purchase a car, so he needed to live close to work and public transportation. My sister was worried about finding 'just' the right place so she asked me to assist. When I hung up the phone I went straight to this web site to find 'just' the right Edmonton apartments to live. 
Workplace so close to my brother in law's apartment
The apartment I found was within walking distance to work and two blocks away from access to public transportation. With access to public transportation it allowed him to buy groceries, enjoy a movie, and make life outside of work accessible. My brother-in-law adjusted quickly to his new job. He made a lot of friends and had visited couple of nice places in Canada. When the weather is nice, he would get on his bike and check the area around town. 
First time for him to see the snow and he had a blast. All of these are dreams come true for him and his family.
First Edmonton Winter
One year later my sister called me again with a much better news, she and the children will finally join her husband. I knew exactly that I have to look for a three bedroom apartment.

We were both ecstatic about this great news, we are now closer to each other and we can do more than just talking on the phone.

  9. Goodluck SweetMemoirs.. I wish the economy in the US isn't as bad as this, cause I know a lot of architects who came to the US thru company sponsorship. Canada and Australia would be exciting too for your family ! May God bless that heart's desire !!!
