Canada is the second-largest country in the world with a total of 9.98 million square kilometers of land and water.
It’s is an amazing country, with majestic mountains, rolling plains, beautiful lakes, incredible wildlife, lively cities, and extremely friendly residents. Canada is the perfect place for a road trip, hiking, and other outdoor activities but the cities and quaint little towns are very much worth exploring as well.
Some very typical Canadian things are maple syrup, Tim Hortons, poutine (French fries, cheese, and gravy), ice hockey, loonies and toonies ($1 and $2 coins) and a toque (aka a beanie).
