I was invited by Ford Canada to join a special event they were hosting last week. Best-selling author, speaker, tv host and world traveller, Robin Esrock was doing his Great Canadian Prairies tour which included Manitoba as his last stop. The event started with a gathering of some local social media influencers for a 3-course lunch at Smith, Inn at the Forks while having the main man, Robin Esrock give an inspiring presentation of his travel experiences and aspirations. Following lunch, we hit the road in brand new Ford vehicles to the world renowned Narcisse Snake Pits. Word of advice, if you have a fear of snakes, you might not want to google it. According to National Geographic, it's billed to be the largest gathering of snakes anywhere in the world and during this time of year, the Manitoba climate and geology makes for the perfect mating ground for these reptiles. This is definitely one for the books, one to put in your bucket list.

As part of the entire event, I was generously given a signed copy of Robin Esrock's book, The Great Canadian Bucket List, to giveaway to my readers. To enter, simply share something you'd like to cross off your own bucketlist in the comments below. Giveaway runs until next week, May 18 and is open to Canadian & US residents. I can't wait to see your submissions!

  2. Oh my you are so brave!! I don't know if I could get that close to snakes! Something I'd like to cross off my bucketlist is to visit more of Canada! I've only ever been to Quebec and Ontario. I'd love to visit British-Columbia and the Prairies :)

  36. Hi Sybil... Looks like you had a Ron of fun. How cool is it to have the opportunity to participate in an event like this one. I have so many things on my bucket list that I don't know where to begin. I'd have to say taking a trip to Italy would be on top that list!

    Thanks so much for sharing

  65. That flourless cake looks delicious! I gotta say those snakes look almost adorable in the picture, but in real life I probably would be too scared to get that close
