As Canada Day approaches and the summer vacation season begins, many Canadians will hit the road to travel to cottages, beaches and tourist spots. But only a few will travel beyond their own province.

Last year, journalist Marelle Reid drove across Canada in six weeks, beginning in Victoria and finishing in St. John's, N.L. She chronicled her journey with photos, videos and blogs of her experiences. This week's video shows highlights of her roadtrip, which may inspire you to take your own.
