Itinerary Overview

Today, I'm going to tell you about a country where I lived for a year: Canada. We all know this huge country. On the other hand, some clichés persist as on its climate, we will see it in this article.

I had a wonderful year thanks to the open-mindedness and the mentality of its inhabitants. Moreover, the nature is luxuriant but for the most city-dwellers among you, life in some cities is very pleasant.

I'm going to talk about two different areas : the eastern part which is French speaking with Montreal (Quebec) and the western part, the British part, with Vancouver Island (British Columbia).

PS: Vancouver Island is absolutely not Vancouver. The latter is an Americanized city on the continent that has nothing to do with the island.

Q & A

    Maybe stay more in the nature and less in the city. But I’m a City Guy.

    Complicated! The best is self-cooking, for sure.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Do not hesitate to ask help to Canadian people. One of the most gentle population of Earth. Maybe you’ll end up sleeping in their house as their guest.

    Couchsurfing works perfectly in Canada. Great country to do it.

    Territory is huge, so be careful at your trajectory! Prepare-it in advance
