A few weeks ago, I was driving up to Sudbury for the first time in my life. I saw train tracks lacing through the streets of downtown Sudbury and huge bodies of water glistening in the middle of the city.
I wondered how my life would change here and how I would adjust to this green city of lakes, having lived in a concrete jungle.
A few weeks ago, I kicked off a new series here at Sudbury.com, chronicling my journey as I explore my new city and discover new places to love.
I want to see the Big Nickel and pay a visit to the Grotto, but I’m sure there are lots of cool places in the city that I haven’t heard about. Greater Sudbury has a lot to offer and this segment will follow my journey as I evolve from basically a tourist in Sudbury into a Sudburian.
In this first installment of Eden Gets to Know Sudbury, I play a game of Sudbury trivia with my coworker, Jenny Lamothe.
But, I’m preparing for my first fishing trip, an activity you fine readers suggested I try. I've found a guide and I'm excited to get a line in the water for the first time. I'll be bringing you that experience in the coming weeks.
Now that I've been here for about a month, I've noticed there’s a change of pace from Ottawa, but I’m not mad about it. I find myself being open to doing new things I have never done before.
I’m usually a creature of habit, but I know that if I want to experience any level of self growth, change is essential. Not that I think I will have some revelatory discovery about myself out on the lake — but I do think it’s good that I embark on new challenges and learn a thing or two about myself.
And I would love for you guys to follow my journey to becoming a Sudburian.
I have never gone fishing before so I’m not really sure what to wear, what to bring or even what type of fish there are, but here’s hoping I catch a big one out there.
If you have any tips and tricks for fishing, please let me know! I can seriously use some help. You can contact me by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
