Since I have been in Australia, I have grown even fonder and have grown a huge appreciation and dedication to my country. I am so extremely proud to be Canadian, and I take great pride in my country and have tried to encourage people to go and visit our beautiful land.
Today I wore my Canadian shirt and sweater in honour of Canada Day while we were hiking around Kings Canyon. While we were hiking I ran into another Canadian backpacker who shared in my joy for the day.
Today coincidently also happened to be Northern Territory Day (the state that I am in). When we arrived back in Alice Springs at night, I was pleasantly surprised to see fireworks everywhere! I was so happy that I didn’t miss out on any fireworks this year for Canada Day, and that I got to share my Canadian pride with other Canadian backpackers!
Cheers to Canada!
