Realizing I could easily write an essay on our recent trip to Canada, I decided you might be more apt to read it, if it was described in pictures.
Let me start by saying that one of the highlights for me was meeting fellow bloggers. First was lunch with Deb from The Widow Badass.
She was just as delightful in person as she is on her blog.
I also got to meet Joanne from My Life Lived Full, who was my inspiration for this trip as she is always writing about her city, Toronto.
It was fun to meet these women face to face and solidify what, up til then, had been just an on-line friendship.
Just a few tips about Canada
If you are planning a trip to Niagara Falls:
- Go directly to the Canadian side, it’s easier access and a much better view
- Try to avoid arriving mid-day – on a weekend – in the summer (like we did)
- Be prepared for crowds
- Take the boat ride which ever side you are on
- And, finally, go with the one you love if possible.
The largest city in Canada has one of the most efficient public transit systems. If you go, take the subway, the bus, and the cable car!
Look for the black squirrels.
Enjoy the sites.
What ever you do, you will enjoy this city. It has something for everyone.
In closing, I just have to say that I was struck by how positive everyone was – from messages on T-shirts, to billboards, to the people we met. The Prime Minister addressed the nation while we were there. He stated the importance of listening to each other. With such a diverse population, it was wonderful to see everyone getting along. Because after all, don’t we all just want the same things in life – peace, happiness, and opportunity?
Oh, Canada, you won my heart!
