We leave London and drive through Windsor/Detroit into the USA. Cutting up through Michigan and Minnesota, we make our way to Winnipeg. From there, we head due west, hitting Regina, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, and other small towns on the way to Vancouver. While in Vancouver, we are ferrying across to Victoria, as well as taking a day trip to Seattle (the first compassionate city in the world). Leaving Vancouver, we head through Kelowna, Banff, and arrive in Calgary. From there we head north to Edmonton, where we fly even further north to Yellowknife, Inuvik, and Whitehorse, eventually making our way back to Edmonton. Leaving Edmonton, we head east to Saskatoon and back to Winnipeg. After that, it’s a long drive home the way we came from.
We fly into Paris from Toronto, ON, Canada. From Paris, we head north to Belgium. We continue on to the Netherlands and eventually make a clockwise loop through Berlin, Prague, Vienna, and, finally, arriving in Munich. We then head south from Munich to Italy where we then make our way up the Mediterranean coastline towards Monaco and southern France. From there we begin to head north into Switzerland and back to Munich. Following Munich, we head west to Strasbourg and finally back to Paris. After arriving in Paris, we take the Chunnel to London, England, where we end our journey. We then fly out of London back home to Canada.
It is cool to visualize your trip before you go, especially when you can map it out and take a look at the whole endeavor in one glance. However, the four of us know that things will change along the way. When planning a trip to many locations, it is good to have a route but use it as a guideline for your trip; don’t limit yourself to those specific places or the time you plan on spending at each.
