Being on the move sure does not give you too much time to check out local activities and sights if you are only staying for one evening, you tend to just scratch the surface of your new acquaintance and it ends up that you either stay up really late (getting tougher as age is creeping in) or if you are lucky, you end up getting hosted another evening which sort of works out when you don’t plan on anything for the next day. And sometimes it’s the weather, and you have no choice but to choose to get ahead of it. Just still having my fingers crossed that the snow holds off.
I had a great time in Manitoba in the short visit that I was there. My hosts “Lizzie and Yvette” made my visit a success, getting to know some locals and getting tours around to see some local sites. If it were not my hosts, I would not have seen the local area and what it had to offer. From beaches, marshes and local farm life, even had a wonderful garden fresh dinner at Wendy and Pierre’s house on the prairies. I’ve also enjoyed the travel stories that I’ve come across so far.
