Canada’s Western Mountain Region

A look back

Canada was a series of high points, both literally and figuratively. As we look

back on our impressions and experiences, we conclude that Western Canada

offers everything our homeland lacks: space, emptiness, vastness, endlessness,

tranquillity ... The expanse of the Canadian wilderness is hard to grasp for us.

But we immersed ourselves in it, enjoyed it intensely and have returned with our

souls cleaned.
