When I knew I was off to Canada, my first thoughts were to plan the places to visit in Winnipeg for my week of adventure. To anyone living outside of Manitoba, the central province and beating heart of Canada remains surprisingly undiscovered. But that’s part of its magic and appeal – it epitomises the road less frequented. Manitoba isn’t flocked to by the tourist hordes or even by many first time visitors to Canada. It is more favoured by those who seek authenticity in their travel destinations, by those who know Canada a little more intimately and want to branch out to see something more rugged, unusual and new.
