Canada

If you choose to go to Canada, you must appreciate a certain lifestyle, inclined to adaptation and adventurous. In fact, first of all, it’s necessary to be able to live with a rigid climate.

That said, however, the atmosphere and the natural landscapes of this territory are able to charm us every time.

There are also metropolises that deserve to have our full attention as tourists curious about architecture and history.

In short, Canada isn’t worthy of being considered the unlucky cousin of America 😉
