How very cool to meet up with this guy today! We’ve been following Dylan on his journey across Canada and it is nothing short of inspiring.
Walking 5000 km on foot from Montreal to Vancouver is an incredible feat but to do it alone, and in Winter!? Absolutely amazing. There’s been some ridiculously cold weather lately and we can’t even begin to imagine the willpower it takes to continue this journey from morning until night.
I saw him on my route to deliver to North Bay, looked down at my kombucha for the ride home and thought.. you know what this guy needs...? A kombucha! Lol. Of course, I really just wanted to stop and say how impressive he is. Follow his journey on instagram @dylan_trekking and on Facebook 5000 km by foot.
So nice to meet you, Dylan!! I wish I would have had more time to chat and offer you a warm meal. Happy travels!
***Note: If anyone wishes to offer up their home for a nights stay, I'm sure he would greatly appreciate it. Follow his journey and shoot him a message if you're along the way! He is in North Bay for the evening and will carry on through Ontario for the next while.
C’était absolument extraordinaire de rencontrer cet homme ci aujourd’hui! On a suivi l’aventure de Dylan d’un bout à l’autre du Canada et c’est tout à fait inspirant!
À pied pendant 5 000 km, à partir de Montreal jusqu’à Vancouver, c’est tout un exploit! En plus, le faire seul et durant l’hiver? Absolument incroyable. Il a eu des journées très froides dernièrement et on ne peut pas s’imaginer à quel point il faut avoir de la volonté pour continuer cet aventure du matin au soir.
Je l’ai vu quand j’étais sur la route afin de délivrer à North Bay. J’ai regardé mon kombucha que j’avais pour le trajet vers la maison et je me suis demandé ce qu’il aurait besoin!? Du kombucha! Lol. Bien sûr, je voulais juste m’arrêter afin de lui dire comment impressionnant il est.
Vous pouvez le suivre pendant son périple sur Instagram @dylan_trekking puis sur Facebook 5000 km by foot.
Mon plaisir de t’avoir rencontrer Dylan! J’aurais aimé avoir plus de temps afin de parler davantage et t’offrir un mets chaud. Bon voyage!
Have you been to the White Owl Bistro?
You should. Really. This is our favourite place to eat in North Bay.
First, the view. Located right along the shore of Lake Nipissing, The White Owl Bistro has the most wonderful patio. A 1500 square foot patio to be exact (hello Summer gatherings and weekend road trips with friends!). Sit in the sun, soak up the rays, sip on drinks, watch the sunset, and enjoy....
The food. Ohhhh the foooood!!! Chefs and owners, René and Laura Dubois showcase their culinary flare at The White Owl with a focus on farm to table cuisine. Using high-quality, healthy, seasonal and local ingredients (whenever possible), you'll taste the difference in each delectable bite. With a large selection, daily specials, and meals catering to specialty diets (the gluten-free batter here is a-ma-zing) there's certainly something on the menu for everyone.
The service. Happy servers make the meal taste better, don't ya think? It's a package deal. I mean, who doesn't want friendly, knowledgeable and attentive service when they dine out!?
This Summer, The White Owl Bistro will see live entertainment and a great selection of meals filled with locally-sourced ingredients. New to the menu is healthy kombucha! Sip on as a nice non-alcoholic refreshment (or use as a cocktail mix!) with three flavours to choose from.
We suggest a lunch date, a dinner out or if you've got an event or party coming up, book it at The White Owl. You won't be disappointed.
