My new Korean friends would often want to know more about Vancouver or Toronto, or share their experiences with me and/or compare their experiences in Canada with my own. However, I had never lived anywhere near Vancouver or Toronto, or even Montreal for that matter. In fact, I had lived in Alberta for my entire life.
I felt some sense of shame for knowing so little about this great country in which I was fortunate enough to live, and so I developed an ambitious plan to see/experience the country first through travel, and second through living and/or working in each of Canada's ten provinces and three territories.
This blog, "Once, Twice, Three Times A Canadian", will document the first stage of my quest to understand the essence of what it means to be Canadian, in which I travel across Canada roughly three times by bus, train, and plane.
I hope you enjoy reading about my adventures as much as I enjoyed having them.
