Leaving the protective small Maritime town of Fredericton, New Brunswick, I was a little fearful of travelling across an entire country. I’ve been to places like Miami, New York and Los Angeles but I always had the security of a home-base to come back to. As we pulled out of the driveway with nothing but a Jeep, a 5×8 trailer and the shirts on our backs, it began to sink in that we might have bitten off more than we could chew.
I’m not certain I’m ready to discuss the details of what I experienced on the journey across Canada. Let’s just say some of it was great, some of it was so-so and some of it was down-right scary! A few of my fav stops were Quebec City, Toronto and Winnipeg. (They say Quebec is dangerous but Ontario definitely took the award for that category). The coolest thing I saw: Niagara Falls. The worst thing I saw: the roach motel we got stuck in last minute in Thunder Bay.
Overall, Canada is a beautiful country but I’ve had my fill for now and I’m content to stay put for a little while. Stability is highly under-rated!
To finish out the Canadian tour, Beautiful British Columbia is next (in a few weeks). I hear BC is an adventure all its own!
