US Canada Border

Driving Back Through British Columbia.

Woke up in Prince George. Headed home. By home I mean the U.S., but not home home. Saw more awesome sites, such as a town called Williams Lake that was having their annual stampede!

Driving through British Columbia

We drove and drove and drove some more until we finally hit the border again and had an interesting exchange at customs…

Border Agent: Why were you in Canada?

Us: We drove through to go to Alaska.

Border Agent: How long were you in Alaska.

Us: Approximately three hours.

Border Agent: Three hours?

Us: Yes.

Border Agent: Why did you drive through Canada to go to Alaska for three hours.

Us: Something to do.

He thoroughly did not understand. And he kind of sounded like Napoleon Dynamite. Just sayin’.

So we made it through three days of driving through Canada and made it all the way to Alaska! It was pretty amazing. Now I am back in Seattle for three more days. Can’t wait to see what else I can see!

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
