Day 2. Into Manitoba.

1900km of mind-numbing scenery and all I get is a lame sign?

I don’t know what I expected but lame.

And guess what Manitoba looks like? Ontario. For about 10km then suddenly it’s like Gods’ biggest iron came out and flattened everything. I mean curvature of the earth flat.

Then the farms started. Wheat and canola making the biggest ironed quilt you ever did see. Beautiful. Really big fields that go right to the flat, flat horizon. Thought I saw a hill but it was just an overpass in the highway to make room for trains.

Trains and railway everywhere.

Winnipeg is very bike friendly. Bike paths and cyclists all over. Nice.

Ride along the river tomorrow.

Miss my girlfriend.

Caio for Naio. (Good, right!?)

Yippie. After Northern Ontario, where's the neon?

See that line of trees on the horizon? Yeah, they're one billion miles away. Really.

Road Trip: Summer 2015

In Thunder Bay. What a long drive. (1400km) People tell you that the north shore of Lake Superior in ‘Not to be missed!’. If you’ve been to Port Severn, you’ve seen 1390km of the trip to Thunder Bay. Green cedar trees, little lakes, red rocks. Some bigger, some smaller. After a while it seems you’re travelling in circles; “Didn’t I just see that rock outcrop? That’s the same tree!” It makes the drive interminable! (look it up)

There are a few bigger rocks and nice views though.

Saw a bear cross the road. Too slow with the camera. Have to work on the quick draw.

Saw a moose. Not sure if it was real or animatronic. Took a pic anyways.

Stopped a few times to take pics and ended up passing the same truck 6 times. I think the driver was a bit spooked.

Should be in Manitoba tomorrow.

Hope you all are enjoying your summer holidays.

Moose. I think.
