Things I love about Canada

Having lived in other countries and traveled extensively I’ve come to realise that Canadians really are the nicest people in the world. Like – the nicest. Japanese people are the cutest but also very nice and Taiwanese are also super nice actually…maybe Canadians are the friendliest! Much more than Australians…and American’s certainly not the loudest but up there with all those hot Latin American countries and those spicy Spaniards and feisty Italians! Anyways Canadians are definitely the friendliest and some other things I’ve noticed that Canada has going for it are detailed below.

Things Canada has going for it:

  • Poutine. This is like the best thing Canada has going for it, in my opinion. Some will say cheesy fries are just like poutine but they are so so very mistaken. What makes a poutine so special is the cheese curds – they have to have just the right amount of squeak to make an authentic poutine. It’s also important that you ask for the poutine to be layered – fries, cheese, fries, cheese, gravy. This way you can maximise the stringy goodness in every bite. I don’t really recommend putting the gravy in the middle because then the fries on the bottom will get soggy UNLESS you’re a human vacuum in which case it’s ok. My personal favourite is Smoke’s Poutinerie which is a chain in Canada – GET THE VEGGIE GRAVY. Why? It is far superior than the beef, this isn’t even about being semi vegetarian or environmentalist or anything – just pure taste. So much better! Current state: Drenched from my own drool.
  • Ketchup flavoured chips and dill pickle flavoured chips. This is also the best thing Canada has going for it. These chips are bursting with so much flavour it makes my taste buds want to tingle off. I personally love that feeling. My favourite brands are Old Dutch and Humpty Dumpty, both a little hard to find but totally super worth it.
  • Canada also has maple syrup but so does like some parts of America but really no one cares about syrup in America. Maple syrup is just like a staple for so many things – including meat. And is often the secret ingredient in a lot of dressings – a dollop of syrup. Sometimes I use it to replace honey. It’s good on ice cream. Pancakes of course – bacon a must!!
  • Celine Dion. She’s seriously our national treasure. WORLDWIDE everyone loves her. I mean that, like Egypt especially – everyone’s ringtone is Celine. And her voice is powerful and I’m in love with her because she’s everyone’s first love  by default.
  • Justin Trudeau – I mean, he’s super nice so it’s hard not to like him.
  • Diversity. I really really really really love that. The diversity in Canada is so nice in a way we encourage people to keep their cultures AND be super nice at the same time. So that’s the best.
  • I feel our air is pretty clean so when I breathe I don’t feel like there are pollutants going into my nostrils.

Actually one time, I asked a flight attendant who the nicest country in the world was because you know they travel everywhere and they meet all types of people and when you’re traveling it’s like stressful and you’re tired and everything and you know what? She said CANADIANS. PROOF.

  • Sorry and thank you, all the time. I actually love that. I am really constantly saying sorry or thank you and it makes me feel really good. You can never really be too apologetic or too grateful!

And with that, thank you for reading my blog post. I hope you get to visit Canada someday, it’s like the best.

  • Oh another best thing, Ceaser’s! They’re like Bloody Mary’s but WAY better. Instead of tomato juice (ew) we use Clamato juice – which sounds ew but isn’t. It’s clam juice mixed with tomato juice which make the whole drink lighter but with an extra special tangy PUNCH!!

Did I miss anything? Let me know in the comments. I always love hearing from you. Thanks for reading!!!! You’re the best!
