Summer is coming to Canada
Summer is coming to Canada
With many parts of Canada exceeding 30 degrees Celsius in May, summer is definitely on its way.
British Columbia, including popular destinations such as Vancouver, Victoria, Vancouver Island, Whistler and the Okanagan Valley are all experiencing warm to hot temperatures and little rain making it a great time for camping, hiking or relaxing on a beautiful sandy beach, peaceful park or isolated mountainside.
Atlantic Canada can also offer some unique locations perfect for the summer months. You can explore Prince Edward Island 's rolling green countryside and sandy beach shores, or the coastal city streets of Halifax in Nova Scotia and St. John's in Newfoundland.

Trail Canada's discussion forum 'the rambler' is hot with people seeking advice on travelling around Canada by hitchhiking. Freeloading in Canada for travel and accommodation is easier than you might think.
If you spent time hitchhiking or are interested in travelling in Canada on a tight budget, stop by the rambler forum and see what is going on. It is easy, quick and of course free to post messages.
Popular routes for hitchhikers in Canada include:
- Crossing Newfoundland from Port Aux Basques to St. John's
- Toronto to Winnipeg and beyond along Trans Canada Highway 1
- Vancouver to Calgary along Highway One through the Canadian Rockies
There is a small section of Trail Canada about hitchhiking in Canada
If you have personal experience and would like to help contribute to this area of Trail Canada (or any other area), please let me know. Anything from a sentence to an essay will do so long as it is helpful to people who need to know how to get around the second largest country in the world.

Having a blog or online journal seems to be the 'in-thing' right now. It seems like everyone has one.
Trail Canada started off as a travel journal in 2002. Originally designed as a way to keep friends and family updated as I travelled across Canada it became very popular and over time evolved into the Trail Canada website you see today.
Two and a half years later, I think it is about time to let others join in on the fun. If you have a blog or read a blog about travelling in Canada or life in Canada in general and would like to be included in an exciting new Trail Canada project, let me know.
Please reply to this email and include your name, which city, province, country you call home and the web address of your blog.
