It wasn’t long after this couple met at the Sydney Writers Festival, that Katherine decided that this kind of love was worth moving to Canada for. She packed her little dog, a couple of long pants, a jacket and a pair of closed shoes and kissed her family and friends goodbye. Like the true Australian the is, she showed up wearing what she thought was completely appropriate for the cold Canadian winter… That was the moment Shane first introduced Katherine to “layers and boot linings”. Ever since that day, Shane and Katherine have been inseparable and they have spent most of their free time introducing each other to their favourite places and learning about each others cultures. They have been each others private tour guides in their home countries, and it seems to have worked.
