Hi there,

I'm Clement, 22 year old, international student from France. I currently live close to Toronto.

I would like to discover the beauty of Canada this summer and doing a road-trip by car/van is for me, the best way to accomplish that. But it could be better to travel and to share the good moment with cool people

This is why I'm looking for travel buddies with the same travel's expectations:

Date of departure: End of June or beginning of July 2012
Duration: One or two weeks
From: Close to Toronto
To: Vancouver, Alaska?
Stop Ideas: North Ontario, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Banff, Victoria Lake, Calgary, Kamloop, Vancouver....
Budget: Student = Tight

See ya

The drive between Toronto to Vancouver would be like 50 hours of driving if you didn't go into the States and took no breaks. So one or two weeks is probably not feasible for that distance.

Yeah, that's true. So maybe 2 or 3 weeks could be better=) I'm flexible.

Did you ever done this kind of trip CanadaKid?

Alaska is really far, like from edmonton, at least 36 hours just to dawson city, yt.

Did you consider the train? They have passes I think are reasonable for students

By train, it seems to be more expensive than the plane (with the youth plan) :/
