There is a certain talk amongst fellow backpackers and it goes something like this. I've travelled far to get to the unknown and experience the beauty of this world, however, I haven't been in my own backyard. Nina came to visit all the way from Deutschland and this was a perfect opportunity to see what close proximity was. This was Nina's second time coming to visit. The first time we had explored some beautiful sites within Northern Ontario.... I am noticing a trend here. As the road trip began, the first spot on the list was Holland Michigan.
