My Hopeful list!
Discovering Canada! I have always dreamed of experiencing this beautiful country for myself, from coast to coast. The train is an excellent way to do this! I once rode the train from Montréal to Niagara Falls and had an amazing time. Our beautiful country is dotted with hidden gems, along some more famous ones, which I would be delighted to discover. Perhaps this would be an exciting project for my retirement! I feel so fortunate to live in this land of opportunity which actually strives for justice and to share its beauty with the world. Looking forward to exploring all corners of Canada!
