Canada: the True North Strong and Free

Of course,  I am a little biased when it comes to the beautiful country of Canada! I was born there, in a city 3 hours east of Calgary.  Medicine Hat, Alberta was the place, but B.C. is home. I spent most of my growing up years in metro Vancouver. I consider it my hometown, and miss it greatly

If you don't know it already, Canada has been named 2017 "Country of the Year"by Lonely Planet.  I was so thrilled Canada received this vote, it has so many amazing destinations to visit.

In this post , I am sharing my travel photography from western Canada: Vancouver BC, Whistler, and Banff. These breathtaking sights are some of the best in the world!

  6. It all does look so lovely! I have been to Canada 3 or 4 times in my life. We're hoping to take our kids to Niagara falls this year but we must get our passports first. I'd love to take them to Quebec too and tour more of the country while we're there.
