115. If you want a great insta shot, check out Pesuta Shipwreck, which comes with a pretty incredible hiking trail (and a dog in a jumper*).

116. Montreal is the second most populous city in Canada, so there’s plenty of new friends to meet. 117. There’s literally a forest full of sign posts in Watson Lake, Yukon, called the Sign Post Forest (unsurprisingly).

My goal in life: go back to the #signpostforest and add to the 84,000+ signs
