The recent visit to Newfoundland completes our trek across Canada. Hard to believe ( I know many of you are surprised) – there were no incidences of spousal homicide. John did suffer from the occasional bout of butt-head-itis, but we made it and are still talking to each other. It was a WONDERFUL trip. We saw so many amazing places across this country – our only regret is that we didn’t make this journey years ago with Kaitlyn.
We had planned to draw up a list of our TOP 10 Canadian destinations from this tour – but of course, we couldn’t agree on the 10 places or their rankings (and compromise is a sign of weakness that neither of us will stoop to). As such, we each drafted our own roster of favorite places.

To anyone considering a cross-Canada excursion – we would say – JUST DO IT! We were extremely fortunate to have this opportunity, and would encourage others to make the trip. Don’t follow our path – set your own. Look at the map and pick out cities and towns that you have never been to – stop at places on the spur of the moment. See Canada.
