Vermont. Gateway to Canada.

Vermont. Gateway to Canada.

“All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.”
-Calvin Coolidge

Calvin Coolidge was born in Vermont.


Vermont was a beautiful drive before entering Canada. It was a long drive having started from New Hampshire, so thank goodness I was surrounded by mother nature’s eye candy. At the Canadian border, the border patrol asked me a few questions and let me right in. They didn’t search my car (which had my life in it at the time) and made my journey so much easier. I was expecting to get pulled over and have my car searched vigorously but hey, they did say the Canadians were really nice.

So thank you Vermont for a pleasant drive and the Canadian border patrol for a smooth transition to the land of nice people.
