Folks, I have returned from Canada, which I will refer to as Land of the Poutine. Do you guys know about the Pountine? No? Well, let me show you...
Pountine: fries topped with brown gravy. This is huge in Canada. HUGE!
Blogger World, I'm happy to report back that I had a good time in Canada. I'm going to be honest, I really thought this trip was going to blow. I'm talking, worst trip ever!!! EVER.
You see, I went to visit my friend Travis. We will call him Canada Travis from here on out. I know, not one of my best nicknames. Canada Travis and I met many, many, many years ago at Camp Lu-Jo KISMIF. We were young high school students who got along great. But as we all know, most everyone changes from high school. Hence why I thought the trip would be a complete failure. I mean, what if Canada Travis turned into a freak show? What if I've become a freak show? Thankfully, neither one of us turned into a freak show. Come to find out, we're both pretty normal and still get along pretty well.
Here are some of the highlights from the trip:
Boston Pizza- I found this funny. Boston is not famous for it's pizza. And apparently, no one at Boston Pizza cared to research American Pizza toppings, because shrimp is not a normal pizza topping.
Calgary (downtown)- Some of the best Christmas lights.
West Edmonton Mall-This mall has EVERYTHING. If you want to visit a water park and then go ice skating...this is the place for you. You know my favorite part of the mall? H&M. Oh and the random pirate ship.
Sylvan Lake-Canada Travis's home. He lives on a lake. I felt the best way to see his town was to walk. He was less than thrilled to walk his town for 3 hours, but he was a good sport.
Snow- I conquered my fear of driving in the snow. I drove three times while in Canada, and it snowed every time. It was the weirdest thing.
Well there you have it, the highlights of Canada. Now, I have a stamp in my passport and another country to check off my list.
