    Montreal Transportation

    The subway (people here call it the metro) is one of the easiest ways to get around Montreal. It's not very expensive either. It can get crowded though, depending on the time of day (morning rush-hour is the worst). Berri-UQAM station is always the most crowded at any point in the day since it's the intersection point for 3 lines. The subway lines...

    Quebec Transportation

    We thought it would be a breeze walking from the station to our lovely lodgings: a quick, close 8-10 minute walk, or so it appeared by Google map. BUT our little route was riddled with BIG hills, & worse, the sidewalks were cobblestone, which ended up wrecking one of our rolling (carry-on size) suitcases. It didn't help that it was raining & very...

    Halifax Transportation

    If you're not interested in driving in the city, you can always take the bus. There are buses that cross the bridges between Halifax and Dartmouth daily. I found the best way to figure out how to get from one place to the other is to ask the bus drivers. It's much easier than trying to figure out the schedules. If you wish to find out when the bus...

    Banff National Park Transportation

    When you're in Banff, most people go to Lake Louise as well. The route to take is Highway 1. Or alternatively, you can take the Bow Valley Parkway. It is slower, more curvy, and you get less grand vistas. But you feel much closer to nature on this route. Many places to stop off for a hike or camping or just to take pictures.
