While I love to travel and going to live events I urge you to take precautions when travelling or attending any live in person event right now. Be sure to wear a face mask, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer, keep a distance of 2m/6ft from others, and follow all local/provincial/state/federal health guidelines. And most important of all if you can get vaccinated then do so, to help protect yourself and those around you. If it’s not advisable to travel somewhere please don’t go there.

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!
