Whether you're going on an all inclusive vacation to the Caribbean or back packing across the globe, you're bound to see Canadians. It's always fun to make new friends when you're traveling to different countries, especially if their from your homeland.
Canada is a multi-cultural country but we do have certain characteristics that make us different from other cultures. Here's are a couple of 17 ways you can identify a Canadian during your travels anywhere in the world:
1. Canadians are very friendly.
We are very nice people and have great manners. Many times, Canadians will say sorry for the smallest reason.

Not all Canadians say eh, but it does become a habit. Did someone just say eh? Ya they're most likely from Canada.
3. A Bubba Cup is a travel essential.
More beer, more beer, more beer. A Canadian will most likely have his/her hand glued to the Bubba Cup.
