a mari usque ad mare
i've gotten to travel a lot, but for some reason my road trip to canada with my old roommates remains something that i think about all the time. i had just gotten back from italy, and after working and saving for a few weeks we took off driving for toronto and then montreal, ending at the jazz festival before driving back through lansing and all sorts of little towns.
i love little, out of the way towns. i love driving through them on road trips, especially during the summer. the small towns we went through on our way north were so picturesque and americana.
canada was a turning point, because i realized that just on a whim the world could be ours. we could find the world in these little jaunts all over the place. we could find the world there.
