    I always seem to forget that Canada is the second biggest country in the world. I have only been to Canada once, and this really makes me want to go back, I really think that Canada is more diverse than a lot of people give it credit for, and this post shows off a lot of the beautiful nature that Canada has to offer.

    Hopefully I will be able to make one of these trips in the future! 🙂
