Lai gan internetā mēs par to nerunājām, privāti mēs neslēpām, ka esam atpakaļ, lai nokārtotu pilsonības jautājumu, uz kuras iegūšanu bijām kādu laiku gaidījuši.</div><div><br /></div><div>Mēs esam dzimuši Latvieši, par ko esam ļoti lepni, un izvēlējušies būt par Kanādiešiem. Ko tas nozīmē?! Laikam to, ka esam Latvijas-Kanādieši. Ja man kāds 10 gadus atpakaļ teiktu, ka tā būs, es diez vai ticētu. Bet šodien tā ir realitāte un mēs esam ļoti priecīgi par to! :)</div><div><br /></div><div>[EN]</div><div><br /></div><div>As once popular Latvian poet said: “We have a clear goal, and we are going for it.” To be Canadians and part of this fantastic nation was one of our goals, or more like a dream?! Well the dream has come true! :)</div><div><br /></div><div>Few months ago, when we pointed Astrid North, there were quite a few questions why we are back in Vancouver. Despite the fact that we were no talking about it on internet, we were never hiding it from other people that we are back to take last steps towards Canadian citizenship.</div><div><br /></div><div>We have been born in Latvian, and are very proud about it. We choose to be Canadians. What that means?! I guess that we are Latvian-Canadians. If somebody would tell me this 10 years ago, I would have hard time believing. Now… now it is reality and we are super excited about it! :)</div><div><div><br /></div></div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/izaicinajums/~4/hI-zmtu9WZQ" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

We’re gallivanting North America. It’s official. Our September trip down the Pacific Coast, November loop of Arizona, and the last two weeks spent in the Southwest have lead us here – to road maps, an atlas, and national park books……

It had been quite some time since we had been through a big city. Some would argue that Vancouver, BC doesn’t actually fall into the category of big city, but for us it was certainly a change of pace.We…

Not being fans of crummy weather, the advantage of living in a house with wheels is that you can relocate to drier climates as it takes your fancy.This is why we left Banff slightly sooner than initially planned, but…

Before we crossed the border to Mexico this is how we imagined Baja California: desert landscapes, long sandy beaches, flat terrain, fish tacos, hot, dry and deserted. It was many of these things but also so much more. Surprise number…

Our time in Whitehorse proved to be quite busy, catching up on odds and ends, making good use of the wi-fi, doing oil changes, buying the ingredients for Ben’s shower project, that sort of thing. But we also found time…

Not satisfied with one trip above the Arctic Circle. Who would be? We decided it was time to investigate the Canadian Arctic and find out the Northwest Territories had to offer (or at least the small part of it that…

We pulled out of Corner Brook just as the sun was setting. As wonderful as that sounds, it actually made our departure more difficult than anticipated. Yes, we knew we would be excited to begin the journey we’ve been planning…

From Haines, Ak to … Leaving Haines, we take the ferry to Skagway, Ak. At $111, it’s not terribly expensive (about the same as it would cost driving there) and it saves us two days of driving. Please God, don’t…
