With TBEX happening in Toronto starting on Friday, well I am pretty well traveled when it comes to North America and I wanted to share some of my favorite places to visit. I have traveled coast to coast in Canada and have been in 40 of the United States. So where did I love and where do I long to go back to? Let me share in photos…
I loved living in the Venice Beach area for the year that I did. Working with the homeless for that year changed who I was at the very core. Now when I wanted to escape I did not have far to go it was a simple walk down the beach to the Santa Monica Pier. It was a very joyful place.
Nova Scotia is my second home, my mom and sister both live in Halifax, and I spent 1/5 of my adult life living in Nova Scotia. Pictou County was peaceful and serene. I took this shot one Sunday while out for a drive not far from home at the time.
I lived in Vancouver in my 20′s and loved Kits Beach especially. It was my refuge. It was my spot to think and dream and I really loved it there. It also provided a great view of Vancouver.
The Carlsbad Caverns are in Carlsbad New Mexico and there are 50 miles of underground caves and they are breath taking and amazing. The last time I walked these paths I was carrying my teen daughter in a sling, the memories of this amazing place lingers on.
I have rich English and French roots in this country and I think that is one of the reasons I love Old Montreal. I love visiting this city and in many ways I feel I am transported to another place and time when exploring there. I definitely love this part of Montreal.
These are just a few of my favorite places I have traveled to, where are yours?
