Canada Day

Today is the 143rd birthday of my very young country. Big and beautiful, for sure, but young.

The more I travel, the more proud I am to be Canadian. I love Canada. I love what it means to be Canadian. I love that most people love Canadians.

And I know that Canada is home.

Other countries may be older, more historically interesting and even more beautiful.

But Canada is a country that I am proud to call home, even from across an ocean.

    Oh, it’s Canada Day? I have to remember these things if I am to pretend to be Canadian while traveling abroad, haha. I had forgotten it was that much younger than the U.S. (which is still of course itself a young country).

    I feel like people in the U.S. make fun of Canadians a lot, but I for one am always a little jealous. The U.S. is kind of boring–I guess it’s overexposure or something. Anyway,
    Happy Canada Day!

    Well how fun! Happy Canada Day…. I actually loved Canada while I was driving through it to Alaska, so I can totally bring myself to celebrate that! :)
