10 issues Keryn Delaney loves about Kelowna
Two and a half years ago, our family went on a whirlwind mission to Canada, visiting Montreal, Ontario, and BC.
Canada is a beautiful country. But the Canadians probably already know that. BC is majestic, even imposing.
But despite the opportunities Canada would offer, we were not ready then to make a final decision to emigrate.
Why? Well, because I’m from Durban, South Africa and the idea of emigrating was both intimidating and complicated.

4. I get goose bumps every time I see people driving by for ambulances. It’s selfless and respectful.
5. There is acceptance, kindness, and encouragement for self-expression throughout Kelowna.
6. Hanging flower baskets are such a rustic splash of color that invigorates my soul and immediately puts a smile on my face.

10. There are so many sports cars. Impressive! We also stare in awe at the boat and yacht littered lake with its impressive sound systems.
One thing I don’t like about Canada: there is no biltong. It’s a South African delicacy that is similar to jerky, but differs in terms of ingredients, taste and texture, and the manufacturing process. We miss it very much!
Thank you again Kelowna for your welcome, the opportunity, and for allowing my family to begin our new adventure here in beautiful Canada.
