Speed Blogging – Take One

Well, it has been a few weeks since I have written and I have finished my 9,000 mile trip through North America. Now I am left wondering when I can get back in my 100 sq ft of bliss and do it again!

When I last left you, I was somewhere in Canada and finding that wifi in places without people is hard to find. I really wanted to disconnect which also made posting a bit difficult, so we are going to go on a few rounds of “Speed Blogging” to catch up. It is kind of like speed dating, but without the awkward silence – or so I hope. Don’t leave me hanging 🙂

One thing I had never done was to visit Niagara Falls, and it didn’t disappoint. With my bike beneath me and my bright yellow poncho (because this girl is prepared!) in my backpack, I took off from my campsite to the Falls. A couple of tips: 1) Do this before the summer is in full swing. I know that a few weeks later the crowds were insane and I was happy that I had a little more peace and quiet on my trip. 2) Don’t drive. Take your bike or public transit (on the Candian side) and take the day to enjoy the entire area.


From there I headed to Montreal and drove along the Trans-Canada Highway to Fort Francis where I crossed back into the US. It is a bit hard to find words to describe this drive because it is lovely and full of surprises along the way. At this point in my trip, I had no agenda. I would wake up in the morning, have breakfast, and literally just drive until I found something interesting. Well, that happened a lot during this piece of my journey, and needless to say, I extended my time in Canada by a few days.

This seems to be a thing in Canada
Yes, I brought a vase to collect local flowers as I went. Doesn’t everyone love fresh flowers in their living space?

Have to stop there! Getting ready for my #AirbnbExperience guests to arrive!
