Driving Across CANADA
At the beginning of June we started our journey across this beautiful country we call home. CANADA! We have both seen some parts of Canada, but with it being such a large country, we have lots to see still. We got our hands on a lovely GMC Jimmy, and turned it into a temporary home for our trip. We will be stopping in various different places. Staying in hotels, hostels, bnbs, camp grounds and Walmart.
We will be posting all our updates on this page. Check back often so you don't miss anything.

It was great being back on Van Isle but now it feels great to be back on the road again. We are super excited for our road trip and so far so good. Wanderlust Jimmy is what we are calling our GMC Jimmy and Wanderlust Jimmy made it through the hills. Lets see where else Wanderlust Jimmy will take us. . . #greatcanadianroadtrip #wanderlustjimmy #roadtrip #BritishColumbia
It's pretty hard to take a trip through Banff National Park without a stop at Lake Louise. The colour of the lake is beautiful and it attracts tons of tourists. It was probably the busiest spot that we stopped at but it's hard to complain with such a beautiful view. This was one of our must see spots on our road trip across Canada. Lake Louise, check! Stay tuned for the rest of our adventure though Canada . . #lakelouise #alberta #berta #lake #Canada #wanderlustjimmy #greatcanadianroadtrip #yyc
We were considering what was the best route to take to get to Edmonton from Lake Louise. We thought of going to Calgary and then up but the Parks Canada employee talked into going to the Saskatchewan Crossing to Rocky Mountain House then up to Edmonton. This turned out to be one of the most scenic drives we've ever done. Here we are stopped at Bow Lake on the way. . . #bowlake #banff #alberta #berta #parkscanada #greatcanadianroadtrip #wanderlustjimmy
Ripping through the neverending highway in Northern Ontario we made a point of stopping to see the sights along the way. This stop was to see Kakabeka Falls. It is the second largest waterfall in Ontario. There were a few other people out there with us enjoying the day and taking pictures of the falls. If you are ever in the area make sure to stop and see Kakabeka Falls. . . #kakabekafalls #waterfall #ontario #canada #greatcanadianroadtrip #wanderlustjimmy
While visiting our friend in Sarnia we stopped by Point Edward to check out the french fry capital of Canada. Under the bridge is a bunch of french fry trucks. We did a bit of research and found the one that just uses vegetable oil to cook their fries. We got a family pack to share and the fries were as good as they get. They had vinegar, salt and ketchup to dress the fries too. The name of the truck was Bluewater Fries. . . #PointEdward #Sarnia #Ontario #Canada #greatcanadianroadtrip
