Image by Nigel Lutes

The day has finally arrived! Candice and I are about 1hour from heading to the train station in Halifax to begin our epic Cross Canada Adventure! (WATCH OUR NEW VIDEO HERE) We start with taking the train from Halifax to Montreal (21 hours in coach oy vey) where we will stay for two nights at the lovely Omni Hotel! We are using our wicked awesome coupons that we got from the Omni in New York at last years TBEX Conference. Following Montreal we take the train to Ottawa for two nights, then we head to Kingston, Ontario on the train where we then pick up a car from !

We are beyond thrilled that was able to help make our trip happen. searches for people to drive other peoples cars for them. For people who need their vehicle moved from point A to point B (like Kingston, Ontario to Vancouver, BC) but don’t want to drive it themselves this is a cheap alternative to shipping their vehicle and we get a free trip out of it! (yay!) All the driver has to do is pay for food and accommodations all gas and car are paid for.

From Kingston we will drive to Toronto (to party for my 27th eeek! birthday) then continue on to Sault Ste Marie, Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Regina, Banff, Kamloops and finally Vancouver. We are also delighted that a bunch of accommodations will be hosting us on our trip which we will be talking about in more detail as we go along, so stay tuned!

We also have some very EXCITING NEWS!!!!!!!!! Since Candice and I are going on this epic road trip to explore this lovely country of ours we wanted to give our readers the chance to do the same thing!

    My husband and I lived in Ontario 6 years ago … we found Sooke, BC (Vancouver Island) on the Internet, bought our house over the internet without ever stepping foot in it, loaded up the van with his powerwheelchair, the dog and two cats a la Beverly Hillbillies and drove across to our new home. It is a spectacular drive and really allows you to see our unique personalities by province. We saw moose, bear, eagles, mountain goats, prairie dogs and everything from metrosexuals to hillbillies. Unforgettable … enjoy!

    You certainly worked out an adventure across Canada. Hope to meet you at TBEX Vancouver.

    I wonder if I can put together a hosted trip in the next three days for a roadtrip to Canada?

    If not, the Whistler prize will be partial hosting of the TBEX trip.

    Enjoy the trip.

    I would absolutely LOVE to win a train trip to Whistler!!! I live in the Vancouver area, so I would definitely be able to use this prize :) The Sea to Sky area is gorgeous and I am normally on a bus or in a car going there. So going on a train would let me enjoy all the gorgeous scenery and not worry about the crazy drivers! Have fun on your trek across Canada…I follow you on Facebook :)
