Day 3 of 3 – I Love America!

17 Aug

Man, what a trip. As much fun as it was, it’s good to be back in Ottawa. Over the past few days the thing I looked most forward to was sleeping in a room that was not wall-to-wall curtainless windows.

I managed to drive almost 3,500 km (that’s 63,000 miles for my US readership) in a little over 62 hours and (like all my travel adventures) this one was a journey of discovery. Here are the things I learned and observations I observed during this trip.

1. America has the best highways. Sorry Germany.

2. America is a large country, maybe even bigger than Canada.

3. Contrary to popular legend, vampires do not roam the countryside.

Thanks to Tom for the digs on Wednesday. You are a star my friend, a shining, shooting, rising star. Thanks again.
