When I was 8 years old my parents loaded my sisters and I into our school bus, that had been converted into a camper and took us on an epic journey of 40 days and 39 nights. My sisters and I each had $10 for spending money and we were off on our big adventure.
Our trip took us from Saskatchewan to Prince Edward Island. Places my 8 year old memory remembers visiting are Kakabeka Falls, the Sudbury nickle factory (or whatever it is called, I'll look it up for a future post) and cobble stoned streets in Quebec city. It was in Quebec city that my sisters were moved to fits of giggles as a waitress tied a bib on our dad when we sat down to a meal of spaghetti.
