4 Reasons Why Canada is the Perfect Backpacker Destination

Some people enjoy a life of security and comfort and there are the other groups of people who live on the brink of adrenaline. They live at the edge of adventure and comfort is a lingo they never understood. Risk takers and extreme opportunity hunters are what we call backpackers. They’re self-dependent and are able to survive despite circumstances. Some might even say they enjoy the drill of challenges and it gives them a sense of accomplishment overcoming hurdles.

Canada, however, is the perfect backpacker destination. It somehow captivates the hearts and the minds of any traveller. With the unlimited resources and fun adventures, no backpacker could turn their heads from Canada.

What are these exquisite reasons? What makes Canada unforgettable?

    1. Hitchhikers Galore

    When you’re a backpacker, you prefer to hitchhike instead of taking the typical expensive trains or buses. You choose to hitchhike, because to some extent it shows you the culture of the country you’re in and allows you to get to know the people better, on a more personal basis. You enjoy being part of the country instead of being known as the tourist, hence by hitchhiking you get invited to view any country from another perspective.

    In Canada, they say “You either drive for 5 minutes or 5 hours.” Their expansive highways and their geographical positions everything in that country far from one another. With lots of nature surrounding it, you would have a jolly good drive anywhere you go. Hence, hailing your hand on the side of the street and getting Canadians to give you a ride to your destination, is a plan that can never go wrong.

    Plus, these journeys are made exquisite with the unlimited food ventures on the side of the highway. If you love food and love dipping your fingers in maple syrup or anything covered in maple syrup, then this would be the perfect ride for you.

    So what are you waiting for?

      2. Perfect for Historians

      Over the years as a backpacker, the one thing I’ve learned is that every backpacker has a different agenda. For example, my partner and I are completely different people when it comes to travelling. I prefer to scavenge and hunt for food while my partner prefers to hunt for old architecture and discover the mysteries of history.

      For those who love history, you’ll soon discover Canada is a treasure for both the English and the French. Quebec City has been the land of the French. If you’re passing by Quebec and Montreal, be sure to catch a glimpse of the beautiful French architecture. Dated from the 17th and the 18th century, this city has managed to preserve its beauty and be part of the UNESCO World Heritage. On the other hand, the British Columbia regions will bring you back to the English. With teas and cupcakes, you’ll be able to enjoy the fine English poise and simplicity. A visit to the British Columbia is definitely a necessity if you would want to truly encompass Canada and its culture.

      However, these would only be a gist of what Canada has to offer. If you’re looking for more, be sure to enjoy a nice cup of tea or beer with the locals there. You will definitely strike gold, as they can introduce you to places which aren’t every tourist’s fancy.

        3. The People

        Usually, people have a different perspective of countries they’ve never been to, based on their names. For example, when someone mentions Romania, you would presume a land filled with castles and if you say Kenya you would associate it with the Safaris. This same concept applies to our perspective of the people in the country too.

        Canada has always held the impressions of being the North Pole of planet Earth, the constant imagination of Rudolf and a magical wonderland is something unavoidable. Unfortunately, that’s nothing but a myth. Canada is a country with several seasons, most of which has the sun shining brightly. The people in Canada, despite the temperature and the weather, are the kindest. You can find them smiling and greeting you almost anywhere you go and it’s rather hard to find someone who’s rude or isn’t willing to help.

        People in Canada are known for their diversity and their hospitality If you’re a backpacker, then you might find this a great opportunity to make some new friends and create your own circle. No one has ever regretted having a Canadian as their best friend. Who knows you might even find your soulmate there.

          4. All Food Lovers Paradise

          After almost 5 years of travelling, the one thing I find important is food. A country that can represent its identity with just their food is a country worth visiting at least once in your lifetime. A country’s cuisine can show their history and how they’ve grown to adapt to the course of history.

          Canada can offer you just that. Everywhere you can find amazing delicacies that would fit your everyday needs. Their prized possession “Maple Syrup” is something that you shouldn’t miss. Even if you haven’t much of a sweet tooth, you’ll definitely find this irresistible. In Quebec, you’ll be able to find the best pastries and cheese that could satisfy your wildest fantasies while in the British Columbia colonies you’ll be able to find the famous English breakfast with their delicious blood sausage.

          Plus, food in Canada is reasonably priced, so cost should never be the reason for you to avoid these awesome delicacies. Avoid the common mistake everyone does by heading straight into a fast food joint. Instead, do your research and you’ll definitely discover many unique cuisines for the same price as the McDonald’s Menu.

          Conclusion

          If you enjoy being a backpacker, then make sure you visit Canada.

          Its beauty, people, and food will definitely captivate you and provide you with your own, unique adventure. For those who enjoy the nature, fear not, you’ll find tons of trails to hike and climb with unlimited greenery all around you.

          20 Excuses Most People Make That Stop Them From Reaching Their Dreams

          20 Excuses Most People Make That Stop Them From Reaching Their Dreams

          Have you ever said or done something that stopped and discouraged you from taking action toward your goals?

          Excuses and negative self talk are common problems and are what usually stops most of us from fulfilling our dreams. But they aren’t apparent until we become conscious of them. And it’s not until you become conscious of them that you can start to begin changing them to help you move forward.

          Here are 20 of the most common excuses people use that stop them from reaching their dreams:

          1. I’m too old to start.

          As long as you’re still living and breathing, you still have all the resources to turn your life around. All it takes is will and desire.

          2. I’m not talented enough.

          Talent alone isn’t enough to be truly successful. It might help you progress faster, but ultimately, all it requires is hard work and dedication to improve.

          3. I wasn’t born in the right area.

          Your environment may have influenced the way you’ve been fostered, but that doesn’t mean you can’t decide to change your attitude. You are in control of what you choose to think and feel about yourself.

          4. I come from a poor background.

          Some of the most successful people got there with little but a few dollars in their pocket. Money may help you reach your goals faster, but the real value is your inner resources and resourcefulness to get the job done.

          5. I’m not smart enough.

          Don’t despair if you feel you lack the knowledge to pursue your goals. There is a good reason why you lack the knowledge—you’re just starting! The key to learning is to start from somewhere and make progress.

          6. I don’t have the support.

          While having the support is beneficial, it will not be the reason for your success and is simply ideal for getting you through hard times. The biggest things that matter in your journey toward success and achievement is your drive and motivation.

          7. I don’t have enough time to discover what I like.

          If you sit down and make a list of all the things you do in a typical day, you’ll begin to realize that you actually have enough time. Figure out what is wasting your time, and replace it with the things that will get you to your goals.

          8. My family and friends don’t think I’m capable.

          No one can tell you how capable you really are besides yourself. If your friends and family disappeared tomorrow, will any of it still affect you? You are the driving force between where you are and where you want to be.

          9. I don’t know if I will succeed.

          The greatest mystery about life is in not knowing what’s going to happen. Sometimes, your journey will take you on roads you never thought existed.

          10. I’ve already dedicated myself to a different path.

          It is never too late to change paths. Just because you’re on one road doesn’t mean you can’t take a different path and pursue a different journey.

          11. I’m just not lucky enough.

          All of us are lucky all of the time. The difference is, you just don’t see the opportunities presented to you due to lack of preparation. Focus on preparing yourself for them, so when an opportunity comes, you naturally will become luckier.

          12. I didn’t have the right teachers.

          There really aren’t many things in this world that you can’t teach yourself. There is free and useful information you have access to at your fingertips that will give you the instructions you need to get started.

          13. I’m not destined to succeed.

          Everything that ultimately happens in your life is all due, in part, to the decisions you make. If that’s your current belief about yourself then, chances are, you’re right.

          14. I’m not motivated enough.

          If you lack the drive to do whatever it is you hope to do, there’s a chance you don’t want it badly enough or see it as something you really want.

          15. I’m too easily distracted by other things.

          There are always going to be things around us that are more fun and exciting to do. But the key thing is to be disciplined and to dedicate a certain period of your time to help move you forward toward your goals.

          16. I’m not educated enough.

          Education isn’t necessarily something you have to learn at school. You can never have enough education to get started. If you’re unsure, just take action anyway and learn along the way. Experience always will be the best educator.

          17. I can’t handle failure.

          If that’s your belief, then it’s a lie. We are rejected every day of our lives, but we fail to see the rejections because we don’t choose to acknowledge them. Learn to detach yourself from outcomes and to see the process as journey of self-discovery.

          18. I will start tomorrow.

          There is no such as a future, only the present. If you genuinely have the time to do something now, then use the opportunity and go and do it. You will feel a lot more energized and motivated, knowing you’ve pushed yourself and made progress.

          19. I’m not ready.

          You can never be prepared to get started. If it means learning more will prevent you from failure, then you’re wrong. You will make mistakes and simply learning more will fool you into thinking you’re making progress, when in fact it’s simply a buffer from taking action.

          20. I don’t believe I can do it.

          As with point No. 14, your beliefs help steer and guide you toward your goals. If you honestly believe with full conviction that you can do it, you will start to see that everything around you becomes easier. The quality environment is dictated by the things inside you.

          Now, stop making excuses that keep you from reaching your dreams. Go forth and prosper!
