Travel Canada – so much land and such kind people. I’m happy to call this wonderful country home.



This is my country – Canada. From coast to coast, it’s beautiful. I’ve vacationed a lot across this country, but I’ve yet to venture all the way to the east coast. That’s on the list soon, for sure. The amazing thing about Canada is we get all four seasons – winter, spring, summer and of course fall. Have you ever seen the trees in Ontario in the fall? Such amazing colours, like in upper state New York or Maine. I was lucky to grow up there. Oh, and you can surf on the west coast and deep fish on the east coast. This country has it all, even tasty beaver tails.

Living in Northern Alberta comes with all four seasons, too; however, our winters are especially cold. I don’t mind it at all, though. It builds character and gives me perspective on the world. Plus, the long days here in the north in Canada are well worth the trade off of a cold winter. Below you’ll find some places across this great land that we’ve visited. Some near and some far, yet all close to our heart.
