    TORONTO, June 22 /CNW/ - Have laptop, will travel. That's the mantra for
two bloggers and their interactive pilot project with the Canadian Tourism
Commission (CTC), "Canada is a Big Place" blog, which launched on the summer
solstice June 21. As they travel around Canada, the pair will be blogging and
uploading photos and video daily to inspire fellow travellers to follow in
their footsteps. All material will be available to media rights-free.
    Victoria Revay, a freelancer from Vancouver, BC, and Carolyne Weldon, a
Montréal, QC-based Francophone freelance photographer and writer, are the
lucky pair who set off from Montréal yesterday on a seven-week odyssey across
    This truly interactive Web 2.0 pilot project is a first for the CTC and
is integrated with CTC's recent LOCALS KNOW campaign which aims to introduce
new hot spots to Canadians and people visiting the country. CTC will host the
bloggers' adventures on its CTC Media Centre website. (Watch Revay and Weldon
tell you about it themselves.)
    Join the conversation at www.canadaisabigplace.ca and on YouTube,
Twitter, Facebook and Flickr.
