Looking for Inspiration? Try Canada!

North American country located in the northern part of the continent. Canada is the world's second-largest country by total area, and its common border with the United States is the world's longest land border.

*Who says size doesn't matter?*

Some fun facts:
1. The Narcisse Snake Dens in Manitoba have more snakes in a concentrated area than anywhere else in the world. Tens of thousands of red-sided garter snakes gather there every year. On the other hand, there are no snakes on the island of Newfoundland.

 *Shudder, shudder*

 2. If you visit Dawson City, Yukon, you can join the “Sourtoe Cocktail Club” — all you have to do is finish a drink (of anything!) with a real human toe in the bottom. The club’s motto says, “You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow — but the lips have gotta touch the toe.”


 *Okay, I actually really like Canada, we used to visit each year, but the toe, the toe has got to go...*

3. Canada has its own mysterious lake creature, Ogopogo, who reportedly lives in Lake Okanagan, British Columbia. 

*A great creature for any book!*

The number one reason to get your inspiration from Canada...

Glorious snow!! 


  1. Yes, we do get lots of snow. And by lots, I'm understating the amount.

    I think I'll have to pass on becoming a member of the sourtoe cocktail club.
