Here’s a few photos from Ottawa –> to –> Inuvik! It was totally painless travel, thank god because I don’t think my nerves could have handled any hiccups in that plan! I was kind of on edge or as my family would say “my bitch button was pressed”. But it all went very well and I arrived safely and on time.
Enojy the pics!
I’m not one to read horoscopes but this one’s shockingly accurate (libra)!
Bye Bye Ottawa!!
Ice King’s buckled in! (In other words, I had the row to myself)
Air Canada chicken wraps ain’t half bad
All the luggage made it to Edmonton! Hurray! Ice King’s not happy about having to lug it all to the storage room though
Time for bed at the Days Inn
Where do I sleep?!?
Got our “I’m new to Inuvik please accept these as a peace offering” timbits! (The Edmonton airport was the last place before Inuvik that you can get timmies without venturing out of the airport)
Damn Edmonton you’s flat!
Oh look! Yellowknife!

Inuvik airport!driving into town… that’s the hospital! So colourful!
So that’s all the pictures from the journey up! I’m on call for the next 8 days (holy overtime) so I’ll post little things here or there, then when I finally have a day or two off I’ll go take some pictures of the town!! It’s actually pretty cool here. I’ve already met some really awesome people and couldn’t ask for a better partner for work! So far I’m having a blast! My partner (Jordan) has been really great showing me the town, introducing me to people & making me feel right at home. And of course, we went to one of the local watering holes and got shamefully drunk, it was our last night off together for a long time, what else were we supposed to do?!
Well that’s all for tonight!! Time to put the sleep mask on and cuddle by the space heater (my house is freezing today!!)
Hugs & kisses from afar
