36 Reasons to Avoid Canada

They have their own version of the Loch Ness Monster

As if one giant mysterious aquatic monster wasn’t good enough, Canadians have to put their own twist on it. Canadians call their aquatic monster Ogopogo, and it can allegedly be found at Okanagan Lake in British Columbia.

Apparently, Ogopogo is an enormous sea serpent, measuring up to 40 or even 50 feet in length. Call me a skeptic, but that sounds pretty fishy to me.

They’re taking over Hollywood

Gone are the days of Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman. It seems we have a whole new generation of actors on our hands. Among other things, they certainly have one thing in common: they come from Canada.

Now, I’m no expert when it comes to construction work, but ice doesn’t really look like an ideal material to build hotels out of to me.

Hotel De Glace, as it’s called, is the world’s most famous ice structure, and it’s located in Canada.

With 44 rooms, snow vaults, and stunning ice sculptures everywhere you look, it sounds like those chilly Canucks really like to show off a bit, am I right?

Whether it is the folklore surrounding Atlantis and the Bermuda Triangle, or the weird-looking fauna and flora that arise out of it, the ocean is a great source of fascination. In fact, only five percent of it has been properly explored, leaving plenty of gaps for our imaginations to fill in.

Worst Celebrity Statues from Around the World

We buy their albums, tickets to their movies, and all the products, brands, and questionable colognes that they endorse. Surely that’s enough to quell the hungry egos of some of the world’s biggest celebrities. Well, not exactly. You see, immortalization via cultural significance, world records, and millions of dollars sometimes isn’t enough. Tradition dictates that our celebrity idols need to be re-created in gold, bronze, wax, and stone, so not even the elements can dismantle the memory of their monumental rise to the top.

How to Become a UNESCO World Heritage Site

If you’re an active traveler or live in a uniquely historic part of the world, chances are you’ve been exposed to UNESCO World Heritage Sites. This phrase is thrown around frequently. When we first hear it, the first thing that comes to mind is that it must represent something historic and old. Many UNESCO World Heritage Sites are famous buildings, landmarks, or areas that are renowned because of their beauty and historical significance.
