Aboard the Via Rail train from Vancouver to JasperDid you ever eat a nun’s fart? Walk on a glacier? 를 탐색 도시의 국립 공원?

Have you sampled shmoo torte? Taste-tested bagels or perogies? Snacked on Kouign-Amann?

Have you gone about your daily businessas if you were an Acadian in the 1700s?

당신은 루이 리엘의 무덤을 보았다? Dipped your toes in the surf of the world’s highest tide?

Have you considered how aboriginal artists perceived the explorers who arrived on their land?

explored a neighborhood museumin a former public bathhouse?

listened to stories of immigrants as they came to start life in a new country?

I’ve recently had the chance to do all these things, 등.

여기 캐나다 지역의 모든.

My Cross-Canada Rail Adventure
Starting my cross-Canada train adventure at Vancouver's Via Rail station

I’m just back from a great adventurean epic cross-Canada train trip.

I spent a month traveling across Canada on 철도를 통해 밴쿠버에서 핼리팩스 with numerous stops along the way.

As a new Canadian myselfmy family and I became Canadian citizens last yearI wanted to explore some of Canada’s iconic, don’t-miss places, 록키 산맥에서 대서양 해안에.

But I also want to follow, 공유, Canada’s multicultural story, learning more about other newcomers, 과거와 현재.

문화 교통 패스

나는이 여행을 í•  수 있었다, 부분, 감사합니다 an excellent program that’s available 무료 to new Canadian citizens: the 문화 교통 패스. Sponsored by the non-profit 캐나다 시민권 연구소, the Cultural Access Pass is good for free admission to more than 1,000 museums and cultural attractions across the country 및 to all of Canada’s national parks and historic sites.

The pass also gives new citizens a 50 percent discount off a Via Rail trip, and I was excited to learn that you can apply the pass to an already discounted fare. That’s rightwhen Via Rail announced a 50-percent-off sale, I was able to use my Cultural Access Pass for an extra discount.

If you’re a new citizen, it’s the cheapest way you’ll ever find to take the train across Canada! 패스 덕분에, 너무, my admission to the national parks, historic sites, and most of the museums I visitedfrom Jasper to Winnipeg, 몬트리올 토론토, Moncton to Halifaxdidn’t cost me anything.

Via Rail train departures, Union Station, Toronto, Ontario탑승!

Over the coming weeks, I’ll be posting stories about my new Canadian’s cross-country rail adventure. I hope you’ll join me on my travels.

And I’ll be sure to tell you all about those nun’s farts.
