Immigration Progresses Again

Last time, I mentioned that my wife’s immigration process has stalled a bit, thanks to immigration not believing I’ll live in Canada when she arrives. Well, we got a couple documents that should help prove to them that I will in fact live in Canada.

First of all is our itinerary. We know exactly what flight we’re taking to Canada. It’ll show them that we are going to Canada. The entire family. Secondly, I got a letter from my company stating my intention to return to Canada and resign from my job. I’ve already given them my resignation, even though it’s still more than six months away. It’s official, though.

Well, that’s the update. Hopefully, we won’t need to do much more other than wait, clean, pack, send things, and throw away what we don’t need. But we need to clean up for my sister’s visit next month, anyway. I’d like this to go smoothly. But this is government we’re dealing with, which always tries to make things difficult for people it seems.

Epic Journey Fantasy Novels

When I was in junior high school, I read The Hobbit, and I was absolutely fascinated by the map. The map aided in the journey that Bilbo went through, and it made it quite exciting. I kept thinking about all the places I would be able to see through the eyes of the characters. That is when epic journeys became one of the biggest reasons I fell in love with fantasy.

Since then, I’ve read many fantasy novels with maps, such as Terry Brooks’ Shannara series, Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time, and the rest of J. R. R. Tolkien’s books, The Lord of the Rings. Some others, such as Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels didn’t really do much in the way of travel, opting to stay put in many of them.

What are some great epic journey fantasy novels you’ve read and would recommend? Maps are essential! Let me know in the comments.
