They say it's a small world, and while that may be true, I still wouldn't like to have to paint it. Regardless, it's small enough that you can still find many things that are common to our two countries even though we are 15,000kms away from home.

When Kate heard that we were coming to Canada, she was excited about the fact that she could get involved in the Girl Guides here. Katey has been involved in Guiding in Australia for many years, starting with Gumnuts, working her way through Brownies, and graduating to Guides just before we left Australia. She was really keen to join Guides here too, and experience Guiding on two continents.

So Kate has joined the 35th Oakville Guides Group. They meet at a local school every Thursday night, and she is absolutely loving it. Tonight they had a First Nations guest speaker who spoke about life as an aboriginal Canadian native. They looked at handicrafts and other traditional items and got to see yet another side of Canadian life.

But what a great experience for her... making lots of new friends and getting to see that bigger picture of a global organisation like the Guides, and to realise just how big this thing she is involved with back in her little Guide hall in Sydney really is.

It will give her a whole new perspective on the world I'm sure.
