    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...

    I will give you both our and our son's experiences. First, for a proper London area vacation you need a vehicle. Sure there is lots to do downtown - pubs, restaurants, churches, museums, parks and the like. For all these things, we walked from our downtown accommodations. But London is a sprawling city - so for many things you need wheels. Also,...

    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.
