I’ve been lucky to be able to travel a bit the last few months. Sometimes I complain about how Canada is boring, high taxes etc etc.
But if there’s one thing thats good about being a Canadian, is the ease of traveling.
Sure I have to apply for VISAs sometimes (i.e. China and India), but the process is very simple. I haven’t had much problems applying for the visas.
What is more evident, is that when going through customs I find that I have a much easier time. I feel like the customs official sees that I am a Canadian, and pretty much stamps my passport allowing me to pass.
Whereas, when I am waiting in line i see people from other countries takes a lot longer, with the official looking at them more than once. lol.
I see also the “random” searches being done on those people more.
Maybe it’s a racist thing, or maybe it’s a stereotype.
But one thing is for sure, I am pretty proud to be a Canadian when passing through customs.
That’s all! Going to sydney tommorrow! will blog about that =)
