Update: The plan is now 12 months in the United States and a further 6 months in Canada.
I’ve been thinking about the duration of time I’d like to spend in North America. Currently, I’ve planned for 6 months. However, depending upon finances by that stage, I’m now considering 12 months. This will give me the opportunity to experience a full year of seasons, as well as being able to be there for all of Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and both Canada Day (1st of July) and US Independence Day (4th of July).
