Our wonderful Canadian friends up north are blessed to live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
Canada is the second largest country on planet earth, and virtually every inch of that vast land mass is worthy of being featured on a picture post card!
But in spite of its massive size and awesome beauty, Canada has a relatively small population compared to many other countries.
In fact, with its population of about 40 million people, the U.S. state of California alone has more people living there than live in the entire country of Canada (which has around 38 million).
There are several reasons why that is (Canada’s unique geology, geography and harsh climate in her northern regions, for example), and it’s quite a fascinating study.
Truth be told, the majority of Canada’s inhabitants live within 100 miles of the American border.
Bottom line: If you ever take a notion to visit Canada and experience the beauty and wonder of the Canadian landscape, you’ll have literally millions of square miles chock full of scenic locations to choose from.
But if you simply want to visit a Canadian friend or family member, chances are you won’t have to go too far past the US/Canadian border to find them!
By the way, if you do decide to head up north for some sight-seeing, don’t neglect Canada’s cities.
They’re quite beautiful in their own right as you can tell by the photo of Toronto that I featured at the top of this post.
And finally, here’s a fantastic short video detailing 10 incredible things about the country of Canada. Check it out!
