1) Drivers always stop to let others pass.
Pedestrians, other cars, bears, you name it…if a Canadian driver has a chance to stop in the middle of the road to let someone go by, they do it.
2) It’s like being in a whole other country…sort of.
If it hadn’t been for the natural beauty of the surroundings and the unnatural friendliness of the locals, we would’ve sworn we were still in the States.
3) If you’re not in the mountains, it’s flat.
As one Saskatchewan local put it, “You can watch your dog run away for days.”
4) Aliens are establishing a base near Banff.
I wouldn’t worry too much about it. They’re probably just here for the views.
5) First Nation people are giants.
There’s a 300-foot tall teepee in Medicine Hat. No one was home, though.
6) Canadians are being replaced by computers.
This is who took our order at McDonald’s yesterday.
7) Small towns are quaint and friendly.
We stopped in Wainwright and met some of the nicest people in a beautiful little town.
8) Lots of stuff is in French.
It’s a lot like the states, except in French instead of Spanish.
9) It’s chilly here. Unless you’re a local.
All the Americans were wearing jackets and sweaters. The locals look like they’re walking around in a beach community.
10) Wi-Fi and data service never work.
This guy is having so much trouble he needs two phones.
