*WARNING: Shameless rant coming your way…
If you’re reading this blog you’re likely a friend, or a friend of a friend, of Toque & Canoe. Either that, or you appreciate all that is ‘real’ Canadian travel culture.
You like to mix a little culture in with your travel and vice versa.
You’ve voyaged to Vancouver to see Great Big Sea cut loose in Stanley Park. And – after an all-nighter – you’ve cut first tracks on a double black at Whistler.
Your idea of a great meal includes poutine and perhaps for dessert, a little maple whiskey on your ice cream. Or maybe it’s a bison burger and a Cracked Canoe that fills your tank.
You get your weather report from walking outside…in your socks. You know how to dress in layers, even in July. And your idea of Mecca? Mec.ca.
What’s more, when you get the itch to move, you don’t think twice about driving from Vancouver to Halifax (choosing the Winnipeg-Kenora-Thunder Bay route) and then back again.
The fact is, if you’re a Canadian, you love to travel. Here. There. Everywhere.
You get it. So do we, which is why we’ve launched Toque & Canoe – a blog about ‘real’ Canadian travel culture.
So how can you play along?
Sign up for our free postcard. We promise it won’t come too often and that when it arrives in your inbox, you’ll find great stories that fire up your wanderlust (Or at least give you something to talk about.)
Sound off on our question of the week. Give us your two cents in a country-wide conversation about Canadian travel culture. (Or a full Loonie’s worth if you’ve got it in you.)
Stand by for cool give-aways, travel-inspired contests and exclusive Toque & Canoe swag.
And if you’ve got a great Canadian travel culture story to tell us about, don’t hesitate to e-mail us and put yourself on our radar.
In short, if you think the beaver is a noble choice for a national animal and you know hockey is the original extreme sport, Toque & Canoe is for you.
So lace up your boots and pack the bug spray. Let’s get this road trip started…
P.S. You don’t have to be Canadian to like us.
