As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, so it’s time to share my final post about my #EsuranceRoadTrip!

To recap, I was chosen to help spread the word that Esurance is available online in Alberta and was sent on an amazing weeklong sponsored road trip to Victoria, British Columbia. It’s been my pleasure to write about all sorts of tips and tricks when it comes to safe travels on the road and be an ambassador to help announce Esurance’s presence here in Alberta. This is my jam, man, writing about travel and I have had SO much fun doing this!

This time around, for my last post, I am going to dream about my next road trip!

There is more than one place that I really want to go, but first on my list is:

Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Oh, yes. This girl is a Pisces and thus a visit to the ocean is always on my bucket list. I’m pretty sure that I was a mermaid in a former life, as the ocean is my favorite place to be.


I just want to go from one end of Canada to the other from the Pacific to the Atlantic. Yes, that’s a large amount of driving, but as you all know by now, I’m a little crazy and road trip adventures are my favorite.  I’d start here in Edmonton however, seeing as I already had a fabulous trip to Victoria (to read about my amazing week in Victoria, BC,  CLICK HERE). How amazing would it be to take two or three weeks and drive all the way across this amazing country of ours? I’ve only made it to Toronto and back, so there is a lot more Eastern exploring that I would love to do someday.

My second choice would be to drive up north, in the summertime. Oh, I have heard that the Yukon and Northwest Territories are simply spectacular in the summer. I would love to head up there and photograph the Northern Lights and see all the mountain flowers that bloom.

Third choice would be to head down to Seattle for a week or so. Again, there’s that call of the water that I just can’t resist! I’ve only spent three days there many years ago, and would love to return with the family one day.

If you’re thinking of your next road trip, it’s great to read up on some tips and tricks before you go. I’ve written on How to Prevent & Manage Roadside Problems on Road Trips, and my 8 Tips for Planning the Perfect Road Trip. Esurance has written an excellent article about 6 Safety Mistakes You’re Making While Traveling as well and all are things that you should keep in mind to stay safe while on the road.

And now on to the winner of the Fabulous Esurance Hit the Road Giveaway!

Congrats to Mari !! I will be in touch shortly via email! What a great prize pack you’ve won courtesy of Esurance!
