#BestofCanada: May highlights

In May we launched our #BestofCanada series, with some of our own suggestions on the best things to see and do in Canada. We also asked you to share your photos and suggestions too. Though Facebook has been a bit slow on the uptake, we have seen a lot of awesome photos on Twitter and Instagram. We also received some cool suggestions on where to get the best coffee in Canada, as well as some insight into a touching coffee-based tribute to honour a husband and father who passed away earlier this year.

First, here are some of our favourite #BestofCanada photos from the month of May, 2015. We have some amazing photographers amongst us, and I encourage you to dive a littel deeper into their feeds to check out some more of their photos.

Of course, we know that Canada is full of natural beauty and we can’t wait to see more of your #BestofCanada photos throughout the summer (hint: don’t forget to add the hashtag when you post them!) but we also wanted to see what everyone had to say about their favourite coffee spots across the country. So, we asked this:

And did you ever deliver!

We never expected this though:

If you need a feel-good moment, check out the article that Stacey’s tweet links to. It’s pretty impressive to see how a small tribute in James’ hometown has now spread across the country. This sort of thing makes us proud to call Canada our home.

We look forward to seeing what else you have to share with us in June (and beyond) so please continue to share your travel experiences in Canada with us using the #BestofCanada hashtag, and keep an eye on our social feeds for more great suggestions from our WestJetters too.
