Arrived in Cambridge with 5 suitcases!!!!

I am writing this on my first day in Cambridge, and the sun is shining, believe it or not! The space I rented is perfect. Sarah, my landlady, did an excellent job with creating the space; it’s first class. There are excellent fixtures with the bathroom that has all the bells and whistles! I am very lucky! I am told I am in a very posh part of town, I can walk to city-centre in about 15 minutes through the park, by the river.

It was sad in way to leave Toronto, but I feel I am going to another new home (whatever that means). My friend Eric, from Montreal, took me to the airport, and was very gracious and helpful, with all of my luggage!!

I just registered with the National health scheme, it was very easy and civilized with my British Passport, our OHIP should take lessons, here they welcome you instead of treating you like an alien! Everything is within walking distance, and prices aren’t cheap, but it’s not terrible, (I think it is because of the neigbourhood shopping, not the city-centre! Cambridge is very small (the population is 125,000, including students), everything is reachable by foot; I pick up my bike (pink if you remember) and take it for a check up.‎

So very happy and pleased!!!

My time in Toronto was spent with friends,

Cambridge Ontario, lunch with friends Gordon, Mickey and Mickey's lovely Mom!

About Betty Steinhauer

Betty Steinhauer was born in England and raised in Toronto, Canada. Even as a young mother, Betty was active in the community sitting on a number of boards and lending her expertise to various public organizations. In 1983, she founded Betty Steinhauer & Associates Ltd. a consulting firm where, for twenty-five years, she used her unique abilities to act as a catalyst, facilitator and advisor to both the private and public sectors, in forging relationships between organizations and/or individuals for mutually advantageous outcomes. For many years, Betty travelled widely in out-of-the-way areas of the world. As she travelled, the idea for The People Bridge Charitable Foundation was formed. The People Bridge was registered as a Canadian charity in 1997. The mandate of the Foundation was to facilitate important changes in the lives of ordinary people through small-scale charitable projects. Betty has now retired the Foundation that, during its lifetime, undertook over 100 projects worldwide, mostly in conjunction with organizations already working in the target area. Betty’s experience and expertise in business, along with the advice and assistance she receives from colleagues around the globe, give her a unique ability to spot the need and understand how it can be met. Betty has the unusual combination of an entrepreneur’s abilities and an intrinsic understanding of people. Betty has visited India seventeen times in the past twenty years to pursue her spiritual journey. She has frequently been a guest of the Brahma Kumaris and the World Spiritual University to study meditation and further her own spiritual life. Betty is currently active with the Steering Committee of the Spirit of Humanity Forum, in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is an annual Forum that, it is felt, will become to the spiritual world what the Davos Forum is to the financial world. Betty makes her home in Toronto, and has published her memoir “My Way”. She began her Nomadic Internship in the summer of 2013.

  2. So excited to hear about your transition! I was supposed to be in Cambridge today but an emergency appendectomy is keeping me at home another month. Will be there at the end of May. Perhaps we could grab dinner one evening! Best,Brenda (your one-time seat mate coming home from Greece)

    All the best Betty in your new home.

    At some time you might want to take a longish bike ride to Saffron Walden. We visited the town many years ago and were impressed by an ancient maze there and one of the “Great Houses?” (Audley End). Shades of Downton Abbey! lol.
