5 ways to stand out as Canadian while traveling

December 29, 2016

If you read our last blog post, we talked about 5 exciting things to do this winter.  But for a lot of Canadians who have been victimized by winters cold wretched temperatures, and want to escape to a more comfortable climate is closer to what some have in mind.  So, if you are one of those who is taking a vacation this winter here are 5 ways to stand out as a Canadian while travelling.

#1. Dress like a Canadian

As a disclaimer, we are not telling you to bring your winter coat out to the beach or rock those roots sweatpants at the Tiki bar or wear a Don Cherry suit out to dinner.  Instead, we are suggesting Canadian themed clothing such as bathing suits, tank tops for men, or a Toronto Blue Jays baseball cap.  All of these items are appropriate for the weather and allow you to wear your pride on your sleeve... or bottom…

#2. Mark your spot on the Beach

If you can find an extra-large Canadian beach towel, this is a perfect way to mark your spot on the beach where all of your friends meet back up and gather around.   If you can’t find a big one to lay down, you can opt for a Canadian style beach chair or umbrella as well!

#3. Canadian flag patch

This isn’t news for most people but wearing a Canada flag on a backpack is in some ways a tradition for Canadian travellers.  The Canadian patch not only tells locals that you are a Canadian Tourist but it symbolizes the values that Canadians hold and in many countries, this patch gives Canadians an extended hand of respect.

#4. Show your fun side!

While on vacation it is important to let go of the worries in your life and show your true self.  Arguably our most fun tip and most flexible is to take that extra step and accessorize yourself.  Wear funky glasses with a Maple leaf printed on the lenses, wear temporary tattoos at the beach, wear a crazy hat.  Do whatever it is you see fit to show off your true Canadian self!

#5. Keeping Cool at the beach

In our final tip, we encourage you to be proactive by bringing a cooler bag to the beach so that you can keep cold water, beverages and snacks during your long stay in the sun.  This gives you another great opportunity to show off your colours with a Canadian style Cooler bag!
