Salut la famille! Im new here so here's a bit about me! From France but I moved to Montreal for school after a bit of travel, so rn only hit the road btw semesters. I do Middle East Studies, Anthropology and Russian Literature if anyone's interested! it was real challengin to sit in a classroom again but hey i'm glad i got to expand my horizons that way. In Quebec I did a bit of wandering tnks to the Great Trail, I hitched but mostly walked. Rn Im based in a shack btw river and forest yihaa
I'm still young and have a lot to learn so thank you for this site and awesome community
plein d'amour!

ps: soon headin down to Ontario BUT rn national parks are closed for camping and the trail I follow mostly go through parks, anyone know of a network of farms that welcome campers for free/in exchange of work?

@Gori Hello! I was actually just discussing Russian literature (specifically, a few sci-fi works that have been translated into English and how different translations change the feel of the work), so this caught my eye! Halted pursuit of my degree, but I was going for Philosophy, myself. Philosophy of language is a special interest of mine.

Anyway, sounds like some pretty cool stuff! I'm not familiar with Ontario (or anything outside of the East Coast, at present), so can't help you there, but wishing you the best in finding something!

Hey!! For sure my teachers always tell us that that russian more than other languages is tricky to translate! Im learning persian at school aswell and its the same than russian, the language is so precise and playfull that whenever poetry is translated for example a lot of it is lost anf interpretation becomes way more linear than what the original version offered
Thanka for the kind words!!

Elisa! I'm pretty sure my friend and I gave you and your friend Jean a ride out in Renfrew ON over the summer. So random to find you here. Hope your life is going good and everything :) feel free to message me if you're ever in Toronto or looking for a travel buddy. I'm still in uni but maybe soon I'll be keen to get out again. Peace!

    More Info

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$115.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $115.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
