This is a variation of something I found online while doing research for this trip. I was looking for a map of the northeast US and the Maritime provinces of Canada to post on the blog and show, in true scale, where I was going to be.

In the map above, each state, province and region has three words or phrases which were evidently gleaned from Google Incognito searches performed in the US in 2016. Enlarge and or zoom in on the map, or print it out to read the fine print. By the way, you should be able to right-click on any of the photos I post (mine or those found online, like this one) and save them to your own computer where you may view or manipulate them.
For example, North Carolina, where I live, had these three things:
Humid, Racist, Stupid
(And let me stop right here and say that these views do NOT reflect those of JohnBoy or the blog!)
The Southeast US in general:
Poor, Religious, Humid
Some are rather humorous (check Kentucky) and some had few, if any, responses (check Labrador and the Maritimes in general).
My friends Eric and Shawn recently traveled to three countries in Europe to celebrate a milestone anniversary and I changed the rules a little and asked them to formulate three impressions about those three cities or countries based on their short time there. I plan to do the same for the areas I am visiting and will post my thoughts on the Maritimes (individually and collectively) after I have been to PEI and have seen more of New Brunswick. Later I will add my thoughts on the small portions of Quebec and Ontario provinces that I will be seeing before going home.
A fun little game you can play at home to pass the time between blog posts (especially since yesterday was a travel day – car, and today is another travel day – ferry).
