For the last year and a half, I have been wanting to go back to Canada for whatever reason. My husband has never been out of the country. I lived 2 1/2 hours from the Peace Bridge as a kid, so there were a few trips. My last trip was to Toronto in 2004, when I was chaperoning a bunch of Mom's high school students. That was not fun. But it was my first trip to a Tim Horton's, as they hadn't yet gone stateside, so I guess that's something.
I have been to Canada (well, OK, Ontario) and briefly to Mexico, but not anywhere outside of North America. I can't help but keep thinking I need to expand my horizons. Like I'm sheltered or something. Which I'm not, because I went on quite a few trips to many different places with my parents as a teenager and young adult. I realize I have had way more experience than a lot of folks who never leave their home state, but there is much about this world I don't know. I keep thinking I need to change that.
Toronto makes me claustrophobic, but I'm starting to warm up to the idea of going back. What will be better is NOT being with my parents around the strip clubs (both straight and gay) and various sex shops near Bloor Street. When you're 14, that is awkward as all hell. There was a place called the Zanzibar that sold really weird condoms, including alligator-skinned ones. That can't be pleasant for either party.
My husband has this obsession with the Northwest Territories. Yeah, um, no. Lake effect winters were enough for me. Though two places I wouldn't mind are Vancouver/Victoria and Nova Scotia. Not that I know what's worth seeing in either. Anything else I should see when I'm up there? The trip probably won't be until 2016 because the hubby needs a passport, but I'm trying to coalesce plans in my head.
