I know I haven’t posted in almost a month. Things have been hectic, stressful, yadda, yadda, yadda. I won’t bore or depress you with the details. Anyhow, everything is all good now, and I find myself driving across Canada. What? Yes, you heard right: Driving. Across. Canada.

Why would anyone do such a thing? Why not just fly? Those are the questions I would be asking a friend if they wanted to undertake this trip. At first, it was supposed to be a food road trip, but that didn’t quite pan out. Now it is a “Why not?” trip. It’s a “check out what this humongous country looks like” trip. It is a “take photos and enjoy life” trip. It’s an “I’m a Canadian and I want to see Canada” trip.

First stop: Calgary to Saskatoon. Saskatoon to Winnipeg.


looooooool I always find it amusing the slogans small towns come up with. I love Lanigan’s “Land of Potash” tag-line. How inspiring! I actually think this town was on the way to Winnipeg, but I will add the photo here anyway.


My favourite photo so far is this bridge that is somewhere in the prairies.

Finally, I was pretty impressed with the bodies of water that threatened to engulf both sides of the road. When I think of prairie driving I do not think of lovely lakes and rivers. I have to admit that I enjoy the drive from Saskatoon to Winnipeg.

  1. Canada is actually a beautiful place to go explore 🙂 haha I think all of us need a ”take photos and enjoy life” trip 😛

  2. I can see that driving across Canada, instead of flying, is very much worth it. Lovely pictures!

  3. I like to fly, but I really like road trips too! Driving truly makes the journey as important as the destination. This looks like a beautiful road trip.

  4. I’ve only been to Toronto in Canada and would love to take some trips when I get back there. Road trips are the best.

  5. I bet you must have a total blast on your road trip and your pictures are breathtaking! I loves the bridge picture with prairies in the background! Have pinned your post!

  6. I’ve never been to Canada, hope one day! Your road trip is so inspiring, love your photos of the bridge and this one with water of both sides of the road!

  7. Oh I am the same way, driving across a country is much more enjoyable than flying – it really helps you see different aspects of a country.

  8. I love road trip and Canada is a place I haven’t been to, but would love to visit one day. Your photos look amazing and I’m pretty sure you’re having an amazing time 🙂

  9. Driving across a country is just different experience. I can imagine what a great trip you had, and Canada is a huge country to explore. Love the photo of the bridge.
