Cloggers in Canada are having their first ever National Convention, and we, among a whole bunch of Aussies, have decided to attend. It's in the Toronto, Ontario suburb of Waterloo, and, travelling so far, it makes sense for us to wrap a longer holiday around the Convention weekend.
We'll hang around Ontario to overcome our jet-lag, and visit a few friends. After the Convention, we plan to cross the country on The Canadian, changing to the touristy Rocky Mountaineer at Jasper for the scenic crossing of the Rocky Mountains to Vancouver.
From Winnipeg, Manitoba, we'll fly to Churchill on Baffin Bay to look for polar bears. We'll be staying in a National Geographic Lodge out of Churchill. Let's hope global warming hasn't driven the bears to search for better ice floes!
When all this is done, we'll come home via San Francisco.
