Spent most of my summer in Vancouver, BC training and also my hometown of Woodbridge, Ontario.
What else did you do this summer?
It was a pretty low-key summer, but I was in Tofino, BC a few times surfing with my girlfriend and friends. Very cool little surfing town off the coast of British Columbia and one of my favourite places to travel to.
Any movies you saw this summer you liked?
Haven't made it to the movie theatre this summer unfortunately, but I'm sure I’ll get a few movies in on the road this year
Any music you've gotten into to or concerts you attended this summer?
I like a lot of classic bands. Really got into Fleetwood Mac the last few years and they have become one of my favourite bands. I also like listening to Bob Marley a lot. It’s very relaxing music, especially in the summer
