Today Canada turns 142 years old! How lucky we are to live in such a beautiful, safe country.
Here’s a few tidbits about Canada you may not know:
- Eat better than the French
- Are more wealthy than the Americans
- Have more lovers than the Italians
- and Live longer than the Swedes (source: Maclean’s magazine, July 06/09 edition)
Canada ranks #1 in vacation spots and often we, as Canadians forget that and travel overseas or down south. Let’s rediscover Canada!
Here are a few pictures to share…although I’ve never been to the East Coast, so that’s one place I’ll have to visit first!
