Sun up, just eight hours into my cross-Canada adventure. We are somewhere north of Toronto – Eight Hours North – by train.

We left at 10:00pm, from Union Station in Toronto, aboard The Canadian – the Toronto-Vancouver cross-country train.

There are no signs along the way to mark the journey. Just a lot of extraordinary Canadian landscape and
time enough to take it all in. For now, I can only report that we’re ‘Eight Hours North’ of Toronto.

And, it’s beautiful.
