    Once I Went to Thunder Bay

    It was cool, the US dollar was kicking butt that day so I bought a bunch of stuff. The liqour is so much better up there, and stronger. It stayed light until midnight which was really weird to me. I just hung around town, went hiking, saw stuff, went shopping, drank a lot, went...

    Loved It!

    I went to Canada last year for a month. It was great. We went to Montreal because people speak French there and my mum wanted to practice speaking French. I had so much fun there though. I liked looking around at all the sights and exploring all the nice places. I liked walking...

     I think BC is the most awesome place on Earth - stunningly beautiful; amazingly varied; Vancouver is an absolutely cool city; native art art is amazing (if Bill Reid was still alive I would want to have his babies); Yoho is unbelievable; Tofino is a gem; and the people in...

    I Am Victor Meldrew Sometimes

    Last week the tree surgeon called to ask - for about the 20th time this year if I wanted conifers trimming. Not in a good mood to start with, I said 'only if it's free' - he said I can give you a good quote, so I said 'sod off'. He did.

    Drive Through Canada - Will Stay Longer Next Time!

    In early Summer of 2011 I drove from Seattle, WA to Anchorage, AK with my son.  Helping him travel the 2,400 miles in only 4 days through remote wilderness was an incredible opportunity to see parts of the world we had always wanted to experience.  While not being able to...

    Canada, Eh?

    I went to Canada to see the Niagara Falls a few years after I visited France. All I remember is that there were **** shops on the street and I wanted to go in, but I was with my parents. I also remember their music video station.

    Several Times.

    I live in Michigan. I've gone to Maine on several occasions, and New York on several others. We almost always go through Canada on our way. I suppose I've never done anything truly of interest in the country. I've slept in a hotel there once or twice. I've been to some gas...
