One-Tank Trip for Aug. 18-18
(c) By Jim Fox
Want to impress or create envy among your friends and co-workers?
Just tell them you’re planning to visit Paris, with perhaps side-trips to London, Scotland and the former Berlin.
Paris on the Seine is wonderful at this time of year – and so is Paris on the Grand.
|Paris on the Grand is a pleasant and pretty tourist destination.|
For those special-interest tourists who “collect places and destinations,” these namesakes are “one-tank trips” for people living in southern Ontario.
The province is filled with special places that have links to historic world cities and towns – along with dozens of quirky and funny monikers.
How about Dogs Nest, Punkeydoodle's Corner, Turkey Point, Wawa and the Ojibway’s Ochiichagwe’Babigo’Ining.
There’s also Ball’s Falls, Bastard, Crotch Lake, Dorking, Frogmore, Happyland, New Hamburg, Pain Court and Swastika, just to name a few.
