  • Halifax Citadel National Historic Site

    Halifax Things to Do

    It is literally impossible to go anywhere in downtown Halifax and not notice the Citadel as it is the most prominent feature in the city, set on a height which, I suppose, is why it is there in the first place as an easily defensible and militarily advantageous place. The Citadel (why it is called that I have no idea) is situated on a large hill...

    Victoria's Chinatown has the distinction of being the oldest Chinatown in Canada. It is the second oldest in North America after San Francisco.

  • Moraine Lake/ Valley of Ten Peaks

    Banff National Park Things to Do

    As busy as Lake Louise already was, I was concerned about the crowds at Moraine Lake. Luckily, we still got here early enough (around 10:30), that the crowds were not too horrible. There was a fairly substantial line for those wanting to rent kayaks/canoes as we passed, and since we had skipped the walk around Louise, we definitely wanted to tackle...

  • Banff Avenue

    Banff Things to Do

    The town lies in the middle of Banff National Park, in the valley of the Bow River and resembles a small town in the Alps. In the summer time it is mostly visited by hikers, and winter is a place for skiers, the bustling city center is very contradictory with his quiet nature and beauty. Visits Banff certainly do not get bored Shopping in Banff is...

  • Riverfront Parks

    Windsor Things to Do

    I am convinced that this town is dominated by the lake. Opposite the lake is Detroit, Michigan. A most relaxing way of spending the evening, would be simply relaxing by the still waters. I doubt I would ever be tired of doing that! The lake is about 2Km across. There are a few miles of walking paths along the river. Hans (Waalewiener) took all...

    Lake Louise Things to Do

    This is classified as a moderate hike. The trail itself takes about 5 hours round trip, but I remember that i combined it with other trails so it took a bit longer. Though not terribly difficult in terms of altitude gain or rocks, the scenery was magnificent. At the end you get to the teahouse. I remember I bought a tshirt there, it took a fair...

    Vancouver Things to Do

    There were two things I liked about Granville Island. One, as I said in an earlier tip, was the views of Burrard Bridge from it. The other was the marine market. The reason I liked the marine market was that it was on a lovely picturesque marina. Also there was a working boat repair place in this area. I found this interesting to have a look at....

    Another Chinatown, with the same colors, the same smells, the same... garbage, as all the other. But with an incidental small difference: After a week travelling in the USA, and being warned about the characteristic violence of the American society, without any problem, it was in the peaceful Canada, in Toronto's Chinatown, that we met the signs...

    Niagara Falls Things to Do

    When the night comes, hundreds of people line the border of the river, waiting for the light show.

It doesn't add much to the day show, and if you want to photograph you must be well equipped, or you will end like me, only catching the...
