WheresAndrew and ReidonTravel, on travelling within Canada

Two notable writers from major travel publications have been traipsing throughout our home and native land recently. Andrew Evans (@WheresAndrew in the Twitterverse) is National Geographic Traveler’s Digital Nomad. He toured Ontario exclusively for the past month, Tweeting, vlogging and blogging his findings along the way.

Not one to stay still, Andrew got to fly on the WWII Bomber Avro Lysander in Hamilton, flew in a seaplane in Thunder Bay and Algonquin Provincial Park and rode the Polar Bear Express to Moosonee where he experienced Native Canadian traditions during Creefest.

Robert Reid (@reidontravel), Lonely Planet’s US editor, likes to find the quirks in travel. On his popular blog, Reid On Travel, he documents these idiosyncrasies and relates it to the broader theme of the destination, mainly in a funny video. On his visit to Regina, Saskatchewan, he emulated a day in the life of a Mountie at the RCMP Depot. The process included a 6:30 a.m. inspection to a regulation haircut. Though the video is still in production, you can catch up on Reid’s shenanigans by following the Twitter hashtag #Mountieland.

Whether it’s Tweeting in haiku or researching a unique aspect of Canadian culture, both writers inspire us to have fun with travel while showcasing lesser-known regions of Canada.

If you could take a Grand Canadian adventure, what would it be? Let us know on Twitter.
