Im a complete novice to the whole travelling thing, and have recently been fed up with my job and life in general so would love to go travelling and see some of the world in march/april 2009!
Ive wanted to go to Canada for a while now, but really have no idea where to start in planning such a trip. I'd like to go from one side to the other, but not sure how. Ive read about the Canada train that goes from one side to the other, can you stop at points along the route or is it a non stop service? I would love to go to some of the national parks and take in some of the views, as well as have a look around the cities. Id be doing the trip alone so is it easy to meet people along the way?
I know you could probably spend a life time travelling around, but would a month be sufficient time to see the main sites? How much money (how long is a peice of string?! ) would be recommended for this amount of time?
Lots of questions there, sorry! But any advice and experiences would be great!
