[ those crazy canucks! ]

HAPPY MONDAY! So remember how I mentioned that I'd be enjoying a few Tim's coffees on the weekend since it was opening its first international location here in Dubai on Saturday?



Well, let me just say that nothing brings Canadians together like Tim's. Not only was it crazy busy, but word spread like wildfire. And as a new expat here, it was definitely the place to meet and connect with other Canadian expats!

Cheers of joy could be heard by everyone who walked in, some brought their own Tim mugs from home, some brought in their hockey equipment. Everyone was tweeting, taking their photos with their coffees and walking out with armfuls of donuts, double doubles, iced capps and bagels.

We shook hands, hugged, shared stories and gripped our coffees like they were liquid gold. Strangers all becoming new friends. We Canucks are a crazy bunch!

Mugs and Hugs! Lisa, what a cute story. How fun to find such a warm connection so far away from home.
Have a great week!

Isn't that great Lisa. It doesn't matter where you are in the world, that connection with home means so much. I hope you meet some people you can have a coffee with again..

Did you get a double double and tim bits?
The Timmies signs don't even look that great here, and I'm an hour away from the very first one that ever opened and started it all here in Ontario Canada!


Ciao Bella!
