My first trip outside of Canada was in 1966. I had just started university. Four of us decided to take a winter-break to Florida so we piled into a car and headed south. Accommodation involved four big guys sleeping in the car or one renting a motel room and the others sneaking in. As we got to the southern states we noticed the segregated restaurants, we noticed the the "foreign" southern accents and they noticed ours. The old lady running a "mom 'n pops" hesitatingly admitted she never heard of Canada. I still remember seeing my first palm tree. In Miami Beach we needed a place to stay that we could afford. Certainly we could afford a room where-ever this fellow I saw pushing a shopping cart was staying. I talked to him and he took us there. It turned out to be a fair place where the land-lady had supplied a room out of charity to the fellow. He had some interesting stories of his early life. We had some interesting things happen on that trip and it planted a travel-seed that hasn't stopped growing.
