For those that may still stop by and see if I have updated the blog at all, I have survived the trip and made it back to Lethbridge safe and sound! As this is a food blog, and food is a passion in my life, most of the writings that I will convey about the trip will be focused on the various foods tried and sampled.
Writing on the various food experiences across Canada is far too much for one blog entry. I will have to spread it out across several entries to summarize the various culinary adventures that my girlfriend and I have had.
For those that are interested, the trip was amazing! We had such a great time travelling, although it certainly was a lot of time in a car. The weather sure could have been better, as we had several days that were cloudy and with some scattered showers. However, we decided that those days would be better spent on the road. What a great country we have! And I was constantly amazed with just how nice people were on the road.
The food was amazing, so many great taste sensations that are so unique to their individual reasons. A lobster fresh out of the ocean is a completely different food than those found in grocery stores or in a restaurant. Sometimes the best foods that you find are those hole-in-the-wall kinds of places that have existed in a city for years, and truly define the food culture of that region.
I am really excited to start writing (and downloading the multitudes of pictures) about our holiday, but im afraid the time differences, the long travel times, the hours spent in a car, they have all left me drained and exhausted and with no scope of imagination left. I need a good sleep in my own bed and then I shall be good again! How I have missed cooking, but soon I shall be able to concoct new recipes!
Check back soon!
