Periodically, I’ll create a new post about one of our previous trips that you can find under Pages (see Ancient Travels). Today’s post is on one of our many adventures in Canada. I originally wrote this piece for our local Memphis paper – The Commercial Appeal. At that time (2013), the paper accepted travel articles from its readers. Unfortunately, that fall the paper began its cutbacks and did away with reader articles.
Here’s a brief taste of our 2013 vacation in Canada:
A trip north of the border to Canada offers U.S. tourists a chance to enjoy Old World charms without leaving North America. Last summer (July 2013), we took advantage of reasonable airfares and favorable exchange rates to enjoy three Canadian locales, each with its own unique history, feel, and charm. While we felt as though we were in Europe, visiting Canada allowed us to be “continental” without all the challenges and constraints of flying across the Atlantic Ocean.
