Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?

I have been to two places that I would have to say were the most interesting.  I have been lucky to go a lot of different places, but I would say that going to Iceland and in Nunavut in a small village that was on the Arctic Ocean.  I spent a week at both, and they were experiences that I will never forget.

Hometown area?

I am originally from the Niagara region, but fell in love with North Bay because it is an outdoor paradise with trails, a ski hill, golf courses, and multiple lakes in and around the city to enjoy. I found myself here, and I think you will too.

Which fictional character would be the most boring to meet in real life?

The most boring fictional character to meet in real life would be Sherlock Holmes. You could never tell a lie around him even if you were trying to give a compliment and be nice to people!
