I remember studying Canada

when I was at school…Grade 6, I think.

When referring to Canadian salmon

our teacher told us that…

Canadians eat what they can and can what they can’t’.

This quote had me confused for some time

as I was used to referring to

a tin of soup, fish, whatever.

I don’t think these fish are salmon,

however they are, or were photographed

in the lobby of the

Parkside Hotel in Victoria,

British Columbia.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Underdog

~~~~~

underdog

a competitor thought to have little chance
of winning a fight or contest.

The old saying says that…

It’s not the size of the dog in the fight,

rather the size of the fight in the dog

that counts.’

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Odyssey

~~~~~

odyssey

a long wandering and eventful journey

I am inclined to suggest that any journey

originating in Australia and visiting

the northern hemisphere

could be described as an ‘Odyssey’.

Last year’s travel to Canada took us about

16 hours flying time to reach Vancouver Island

to the start of our Canadian/Alaskan adventure.Falling snow on the Columbia Ice-field was

an event we had not counted on.

Our sled ride on the Mendenhall Glacier was wonderful.

Followed by the Red Carpet treatment

when boarding our

Rocky Mountaineer

Gold Leaf Carriage.

 

 

 

Our Final day, not included in the tour,

was a visit to Wiseman,

a very small township

inside the Arctic Circle.
