Canada has a lot to offer a visitor, and here are some reasons why. For more fun Canada travel articles scroll down.
Why is Canada travel the best kind of travel of all?
1) Canada is big
Canada is big. It's 10 million square kilometres big. If you include water, Canada is the 2nd biggest country in the world. If you don't include water, you will be thirsty.
2) You will never be thirsty in Canada
We have small lakes, great lakes, the Atlantic Coast to the East, the Pacific Coast to the West and let's not forget magnificent Hudson Bay. You probably know all this. Did you know, however, that if you head up north, and I mean waaaay up north, you've got your Beaufort Sea, your Labrador Sea and a whole lot of ice and glaciers - that adds up to a whole lot of exciting Canada travel.
3) Even with glaciers, Canada is not as cold as you think
Okay, sometimes it's bloody freezing. But right now it's hot and muggy in Toronto, so I'm thinking of heading to Saskatchewan where it's dry and the sun shines a lot.
4) Canada has time travel
Canada has six major time zones. From East to West you've got your Newfoundland Time Zone, your Atlantic Time Zone, Eastern Time, Central Time, Mountain Time and Pacific Time. I mean, this is exciting. It's almost warped-speed-space exciting. If you flew around the country really fast crossing all kinds of time zones in a strategic manner you could probably even get younger.
5) Canada has mountains
The Rocky Mountains is one of the best destinations in the world. The World! Yes, you can ski, soak in hot springs, stay in lavish hotels and dine on locally-produced fine cuisine. Try doing that in Italy What? You can do that in Italy? And France? And Switzerland? And ... okay, I ask you this. How many TIMES ZONES do those countries have? Has anyone ever grown younger in Italy, other than at a Tuscan spa?

A Canadian conclusion
Hey, I may jest and admittedly, you may not be able to grow younger by flying back and forth across Canada strategically, but for some of the (seriously) very best things to do in Canada visit my What to do in Canada blog post or scroll down and read the Canada Travel blog posts below.
