Throwback Thursday: Flin Flon, MB (In Photos)

Welcome, welcome everyone! It is so good for you to be here today! I have some pretty exciting news to share with you…. Drumroll please…. Today was my first day of work! It has been a long time in coming but alas, after 8 months of waiting for my Canadian work permit and anticipating my start date, I am finally a working woman! WOO! What am I doing, you may ask? Well, I am working for an aircraft charter company here in the North (not what you were expecting, eh?). It’s true. No, I am not a pilot. And no I am not a mechanic. I will work mostly on the paperwork and customer service side of operations. It is a company I have come to love over the last few years and I am excited to finally work for them again (I worked for them prior to this whole work visa fiasco). So cheers to the start of a new season in life! Hoorah!

In honor of new beginnings, today I thought it would be cool to throwback my very first summer working with airplanes here in the bush. Often times as a charter company, we have the opportunity to work in conjunction with fishing, hunting and ecotourism lodges up here. Tourists from all over the world fly to various lodges in northern Manitoba to fish for walleye, northern pike and trout, hang out with polar bears, hunt for caribou and moose, witness the majesty of the northern lights, and just experience the sub-arctic for themselves. For the young and old it is the trip of a lifetime. Each time I think of that, it makes me appreciate the beauty of this place we call home even more. So without further adieu, here are some pictures from my first summer here in Canada, spent in Flin Flon, Manitoba (and yes, that is a real town).

I hope that you have enjoyed these photos. Perhaps it has given you a better idea of northern Canada and flying airplanes in the bush. Have you ever taken a ride in a float plane or single engine aircraft? If not, would you? Please feel at home to comment below! Responses are always welcome. Have a beautiful evening! 🙂
