"Canada (play /ˈkænədə/) is a North American country consisting of ten provinces and three territories. Located in the northern part of the continent, it extends from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west and northward into the Arctic Ocean. It is the world's second largest country by total area." That is a little excerpt from Wiki-Pedia. What they don't say in there is that Canada is also the best country to live in, by far, no other place can match it in it's beauty and it's kind people. I was not born here, but I am so proud to be Canadian, it is a beautiful feeling!

It was not a Disneyland holiday, no amusement parks to go to, no wax museums or island gettaways....just a road trip through the amazing Rockies, Kootenays and Columbia Valley. The most beautiful thing about it was that my 7 year old son said "This was the best Vacation ever!!" to me as we drove the last few kilometres through the rockies and into the foothills. We sometimes don't need a whole lot of commercialism to make the kid smile, LOVE IT!!!
I also wanted to mention, that there are not many places I would feel safe driving over 1500 kilometres alone with my child, but in Canada, anything is possible!
