Trans Canada Drive - 2018

The Trans Canada Highway is one of the longest roads in the world. In Spring 2018, I drove a car along the entire distance - and back  - in  26 days.


The trip was primarily a personal one. It was something I had hoped to do with my father who is sadly no longer with us. It also celebrates my family's history in Canada and the connection we have with the friends who still live there. 

It is also a drive which is apparently not done as frequently as you may think. John O'Groats to Lands End is relatively tame in comparison. This is a trip of ten times that distance.

A book about the trip was printed in 2020. I still have a few copies left if you wish to contact me. As of end of Jan 2022, I will upload a full pdf file with the book's contents. The link will follow. The pdf will cost £5 (around C$9 or US$7)
