Thoughts on Canada!

As we pass through each country we would like to do a quick summary of the place and how it affected each of us. So Canada, you’re up first!

Canada, you are such scenically a beautiful place. Full of mother natures rugged beauty. From the shores of Vancouver Island right up through to the Yukon. Even though we have only travelled this small slice of you for just now, you have won our hearts in terms of your beauty.

There wasn’t a single day on the road that we didn’t say “Wow”. Every corner, every hill, presented us with another incredible bit of scenery.

But, Canada, the thing that you have going for you the most is your incredible people. Our journey through your gorgeous country allowed us to meet so many incredible people. Always we were shown kindness. Always we were welcomed. Often into strangers homes. Thank you. And to those of you who offered us a place to stay, that we have yet to visit, we will be back soon and hope we can come visit each and every one of you.

One of the things that really stuck with us about Canadians is how incredibly passionate they are. They love their country. They love their neighbours. They love their visitors. They are so open minded about other cultures, beliefs and the environment. There seems to be a genuine desire to balance the economic needs and social needs of the country and people seem progressive and forward thinking. The government appears to be the same and is thinking and working for the future of the people and the country.

You, Canada, are a country that many others should try to model themselves on. We miss you already and can’t wait to come back.

Canada eh?

    Your thoughts on Canada resound so well with mine. I was lucky enough to live and work in Toronto for three months in around 1999 (although it seems just like yesterday). I was amazed at the outgoing friendliness of just about (“aboot”) every single person I met there. I only had to walk into a bar and order a drink and someone would strike up a conversation or offer to buy me a beer. Awesome country and awesome people.
