This post was first published on Friday, June 30, 2017. The next day (July 1st) is Canada Day and this year Canada is 150 years old. Of course, I’m living in Ireland right now, so I’ll be celebrating Canada Day abroad. Don’t worry I’ve made Nanaimo bars to have. I tracked down a bar in Dublin that’s serving Caesars. I’ll use the word eh more than usual. Maybe I’ll call someone a hoser. Who knows, eh?
To celebrate Canada Day, I wanted to share this photo of a Canada goose statue I took in Wawa, Ontario. Yes, that’s the name of the town. A few years back I was on a road trip from Calgary, Alberta to Richmond Hill, Ontario. This was the first time I’d done a road trip of this size by myself. While I’d visited Toronto I hadn’t gone anywhere else in Ontario before this road trip. One thing I didn’t realize until that particular trip was how big Ontario is (and how beautiful it is as well). I had spent a night in Thunder Bay and thought I’d be able to drive straight through to Sault Ste. Marie or Sudbury without stopping. Since I was by myself this was a bit too much for one day, so I stopped in Wawa for a night.
Road trips are something I love, and if there’s some cheesy roadside attraction then I’m game. Wawa, Ontario claims fame to the world’s largest Canadian goose statue. The town recently unveiled another Canadian goose statue in honour of the Canada 150 celebration. Both statues are 8.5 metres high.
I hope all Canadians have a wonderful Canada Day no matter where in the world you are. If you are looking for more Canadian content why not read my post from Canada Day last year Top Travel Bloggers Pick The Best Places in Canada. You can also see some more of My Favourite Places in Canada.
Happy Birthday Canada!
What do you love about Canada? And do you love cheesy roadside attractions like I do?

This place would be the bane of New Jerseyites LOL. Mainly because Canadian Geese have taken over many lake areas and seem to poop out lawns. I love ’em. Hardy suckers and multiply like roaches. I give these birds credit. Survivors. Thanks for sharing 🙂
What I truly love about Canada is its diversity. Physically, in the landscape across our vast country. And spiritually, in the many shapes, sizes, colours, and origins of history found among Canadians. It really is the most welcoming and amazing country.
