Oh, Canada! Enjoy the trip

“Oh, Canada!”

After the United States 2016 election, hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens have said they are considering immigrating to Canada. In fact, Canada’s immigration website crashed as a result of this higher-than-usual post-election search!

With this sudden surge of people’s interest in becoming a citizen of our sister country, for those who have never been to Canada, we suggest using the “DK Eyewitness Travel — Canada” guidebook while you’re checking out your possible new digs!

DK’s excellent “Eyewitness Travel” series produces high quality, well-researched books in glossy full-color to give the best experience possible. We ourselves have traveled with DK guides, and love them!

“DK’s Eyewitness Travel — Canada” guidebook has 920 photographs, 110 detailed maps, and 45 illustrations, and gives you nearly everything you need to get to know the land that puts the “north” in “North America.”

You get to learn in detail about their ten provinces (their states) and three territories, both what they are like today and how they came to be, including the many wondrous and beautiful natural features of each area. From majestic mountain ranges carved by glaciers, to dense forests areas, and even the vast expanse of frozen tundra to the farthest northern reaches, DK explores them all!

Best of all, they can be used many years after their original printing, because DK focuses mostly on what doesn’t change: history, landscapes, historic sites, city layouts, must-see places. It also covers hotels and some restaurants, but the wealth of its information is timeless.

“DK’s Eyewitness Travel — Canada” is a great way to discover Canada.

And who knows, you may think their grass is greener and want to stay!

Or perhaps, like most of us after a long out-of-country travel, you’ll be quoting Oz’s Dorothy saying “There’s no place like home!”
