Around the world: Canada

Join me on a trip Around the world and explore the great assets of different countries.

First stop is Canada:

So why should one go to Canada? I have four categories so hopefully something is to your liking.

1. The girls

“Canada has a cuisine of cuisines. Not a stew pot, but a smorgasbord.” Former Canadian prime minister Joe Clark

Had to Wikipedia this since I only know Canadian food from Bob in Winnipeg and I think he eats everything 😀 . But he had a blog post about the hot dogs there that looked insanely good. When I finally will make it to Winnipeg he has promised me hockey and dogs. Yeah!

3. Music

Some really good artists and bands from Canada includes for instance Leonard Cohen, Nickelback, Guess Who, Bachman Turner Overdrive etc. Unfortunately they also gave us Justin Bieber which is hard to forgive.

Let’s finish off the Canadian music experience with Bryan Adams.

4. Sports
Ice hockey! The best game in the world and of course the greatest player of them all is Wayne Gretzky. No one can tell me otherwise.

Off course there is more to Canada than this but I would leave now to Canada for my 4 reasons alone.

Fun facts:
+ If you want to make an American smile, ask a Canadian to say out and about. It works every time.

+ Canadians call the one dollar coin the loonie. When in full production, 15 million loonies can be produced per day.

+ The Canadian motto is A Mari Usque ad Mare. It means from sea to sea.

+ Canada has the world’s smallest jail – in Rodney, Ontario; it’s only 24.3 square meters (270 square feet).

+ 32% of Canadians are very happy, 55% are quite happy.
