My Dad's First Trip To Canada

My Dad's First Trip To Canada

on Aug. 29, 2014 by

It may not seem like much but it is a huge deal for someone from Europe to visit North-America. The best part is people's reactions to the size of our streets, fast-food portions and buildings

My father finally visited me after 10 years of settling down in Canada. As I expected he was blown away be the giant streets and buildings, it is fun reliving my initial impressions through someone else's experiences.

My brother and his girlfriend came along as well to support my father on certain days when I had to go to work.
