Canada flag icon

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.
