Maura Harp

Harp: Today, I’m going to interview someone.
Maura: Who are you going to interview, Harp?
Harp: I’m going to interview you! Yes, I’m going to interview you, Maura, because you’re about to start a big road trip.
Maura: Yes, and I’m so excited. This summer, I’ve planned to go on a really big road trip, about 3 of 4 weeks, across the United States and then back to Montreal through Canada.
Harp: Wow! So you’re driving across the country, basically?
Maura: Pretty much, right. Our trip is starting in Montreal, of course, where Culips broadcasts from, and that is located kind of in the centre, but more eastern side of Canada. And then visit my family. And I’m from Kitchener, Ontario, which is not very far from Toronto. After that we’re going to drive down into the United States, west. And then we’re going to come back up into Canada, into Alberta and the Rocky Mountains, which is really our destination. Spend some time there, and then drive back to Montreal, through Canada.
Harp: That sounds like a really long trip and a lot of driving.
