Dreaming of Future Vacations

Ever feel like you need a vacation? I know I do right now, and Brit Boy and I were talking about just that over the weekend. Not that we are actually going anywhere, but it’s nice to dream once in a while, don’t you think?

One destination that came up during our conversation was Canada. I have visited our neighbors to the north once before, but Brit Boy has never been. I don’t suppose that we will be visiting there anytime soon since flights to Canada from UK cities are about the same price as flights back home to Georgia, and if we are going to spend that kind of money then I think I would prefer a trip home right about now  :)
Anyway, as I said, I have visited Canada once before, about 10 years ago now. I went with my sister and niece; driving up from Georgia through half a dozen other states on our way to Toronto. It was an amazing trip, watching the various landscapes, both rural and urban, pass us by on the way. We went up there to see a concert, and drove all the way back again the very next day, so you could say it was a fleeting visit! It was the ultimate road trip!

I would love to go there again someday with Brit Boy and have a proper visit. It would be great to see some more of the glorious scenery and sights that such a huge country like Canada has to offer.
I have never been skiing before, though Brit Boy has, so maybe a winter sports vacation would be in order. I’m told it is good fun!  I do believe that it could be a great place for us to visit together!  I look forward to visiting again one day  :)

I've been to Canada a couple of times. Niagara Falls is only about 4.5 hour drive. I love Toronto! I'd love to see more - like Montreal and Vancouver. One day :)
Hugs from Ohio,
I.

Apart from a layover at the airport (Toronto) I've never been to Canada. Would love to visit, for sure.

Sometimes I can't believe that never skied in my life. Should be good!

I have Brazilian friends living in some cities in Canada. All of them are loving this new experience.

It's great to make travel plans, I wish you could see new places soon.

Hugs

Ivanhoe,
See we missed Niagara Falls, but I want to go back so much. We went to Toronto, but I want to go back to see it properly and I'm with you, I'd love to see Montreal and Vancouver one day too! Hugs from England :)

A,
It was great! Loved it! I hope you can visit soon :)

Sissym,
Me too, I've gotta get around to skiing. Yes, I love to travel. I'm going to have to come and see you one day! Hugs :)
