Maxime Sigouin, a 22 year old Montreal model, lives his life in a different way.Luckie is Maxime's hippie name he got while backpacking through Canada. What's different about Luckie, you ask? He has been hitchhiking everywhere he went throughout a full year and collected precious life lessons while doing it.
Luckie loves to hike. Instead of taking the bus to get to his favorite hiking paths, he hitchhikes. During his year of being on the road with complete strangers, Luckie gathered a bunch of inspirational life lessons. His personal favorite is: "Everything happens for a reason." He heard it from a man in a hippie commune in Tofino BC.
Luckie shares his adventures via Instagram @luckiesadventureand through his personal blog. He believes that words are powerful and life advice that he shares through his social media can help his readers restore their faith in humanity. Ultimately, he just wants to make people smile.
Maxime wants to inspire others and show them that anything is possible, all you need is a dream. He's like a hot prophet that spreads out good vibes and teaches people to incorporate more positive thoughts and actions into their daily routines. He's convinced that, this way, we can make our world a better place.
Maxime's next destination? Adirondack National Park at the end of this month. Who knows, maybe you'll get to help Maxime get there.
Host Julie Snyder pressed the Canadian prime minister about his dating life in his youth. Trudeau admitted he wasn't "quick" with girls, including Sophie. "We took our time to make sure [she] was the right one and I was the right one," he said of the relationship.
But their slow start seems to have been about more than compatibility. "We were both in a bit of a complicated phase in our personal lives," Trudeau said, appearing to choose his words carefully.
He went on: "When I met this girl I knew that this was something serious with enormous potential. I didn't want to go too fast. I didn't want to miss my chance."
"I had a few things in my life to sort out before I could focus just on her," he added, grinning and stumbling slightly.
"Like a contestant on Occupation Double, you had to be single?" Snyder asked, referring to the hit Quebec reality competition in which eccentric castmembers search for love.
"You could say that," the prime minister answered, seeming to gesture in the affirmative.
Montreal's iconic Greenspot Restaurant is selling hot dogs for 74 cents this weekend, September 18 and 19, to celebrate its 74th anniversary.
On Facebook, the Saint-Henri eatery says it's converting its small parking lot on avenue Greene into a picnic area for the event.
And the wiener fun doesn't stop there. Greenspot is having a contest on its Instagram page where followers have the chance to win 74 hot dogs — a prize they can redeem at their discretion.
The restaurant invites followers to share the Instagram post and tag three friends to enter the contest.
Daily two-for-one deals have also been part of the 74th-anniversary celebrations.
Dating back to 1947, Greenspot serves American and Quebec diner classics (including a long list of hearty poutines) amid retro decor (including individual table jukeboxes — they don't work but they're super charming!).
Get the details on the 74th-anniversary hot dog deal below.
