My Canada Bucket List

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

There are so many things that I want to see and do when I get to Canada! From trying out the local cuisine to epic hikes, here’s my bucket list (in no particular order) of everything that I hope to tick off.

  1. Wow, great list! I’ve been living in Banff since last October and love it! We did a bit of travelling before settling here, Toronto, Niagra Falls, Vancouver island and Vancouver and a bit of the US. We have just returned from a 2 month road trip to St John’s and back which was amazing. I blogged about it all, a X Canada roadtrip should me on everyone’s bucket list!

    1. Banff looks amazing! I’ll be living a couple of hours away in Revelstoke for the first 6 months – definitely hoping to pay some regular visits to Banff on my days off. Are you planning on settling in Banff for the remainder of your time in Canada? I’ll check out your road trip blog 🙂

      1. We spent last Winter here (Oct-June) and decided to come back after considering moving to BC. The pay is slightly better here and we have 5 ski hills, 3 really close so it was an easy decision. We are back in our old flat and I’m back at my old job, easy!

      1. Well, I started off living in Vancouver and then we took our time driving across the country to finally arrive in Toronto, where I’ve now been living for the last 6 months. So maybe check out further East if we can! Such a big country, but I’d like to see as much of it as I can 🙂 Sounds like you’ve got an awesome bucket list to tick off! 🙂

      2. That sounds ace! Road tripping sounds like a great way to see everything 🙂 Did you hire a car? I would love to have access to a car when I’m out there so that I can see as much as possible, but still weighing up buying vs. hiring.
        Really excited to start ticking off my bucket list!
