If you live in Canada, there is no doubt that you're aware of how lucky you are. From coast to coast there is plenty of forests, beaches, and mountains to explore.
For one Canadian family, the travel bug has them travelling in their motor home across the country. After travelling since 2015, they have now accomplished their goal of visiting every single national park in the country.
The father of the family of 5 from Southern Ontario took to Reddit to share their adventure. It began by collecting what are known as Xplorer tags. Basically, you get a tag every time you visit one of the 96 National Park or Historical Site that's available across Canada and this family has collected them all.
After numerous people responded, the mother of the family commented to add in more information about their nomadic family life. Truly, these parents sound awesome and like they're living the dream!
While exploring all the National Parks in Canada is quite adventurous, doing it with three young kids and living on the road is even more impressive.
Redditor's were quick to chime in on what an awesome this experience would be for any Canadian and thanking this family for exploring the whole country. Seeing all the beauty Canada has to offer from coast to coast is truly something else.
One of the employees from a national park commented and commended them for the distance that they covered, considering Canada is the second largest country in the world.
A question that did get brought up was how much this cost the family overall? Travelling across Canada can get to be quite expensive, especially when you travel up north.
The family shared that in total it cost between $25,000 to $35,000 but that there was a "big ballpark" range in if that was accurate. Of course, that is for a family of five but still not cheap.
Considering how much Canada has to offer this family is so lucky that they got to explore every park and site. Not to mention that their children would have a better understanding of Canadian heritage and culture than those of us who haven't seen the opposite coast.
Take it from this family, a little adventure (or road trip) never hurt anybody!
