This was supposed to be a very special trip for me. First, I have been dreaming about traveling North for many years. Second, I took my vacation during my dad’s visit. I have not seen him since I moved to Canada two years ago. Is there a better way to spend time with your dad, who is just as passionate about traveling by car as me, than taking a two-week trip together to some of the world’s most amazing places?
This weekend’s road trip brought me to a small resort town of Harrison Hot Springs. Beautiful little town and amazon park on a lake shore. I bet in summer it is ever more awesome!
It has been really busy couple of weeks. I really wanted to get away from city, switch my mind to something different and enjoy a calm day away from everyday worries. And I know a proven way to do it – go to my favourite Mont Tremblant national park!
While I am getting ready for my next big adventure, I was entertaining myself by discovering new places around Montreal and re-visiting the ones I love so much.
One of my favorite areas in Quebec is Mont-Tremblant national park. I could not miss an opportunity to go there. And this time I was lucky to see something that I have never seen in my life before!
Today I have visited another cool place just 1 hour drive from Montreal – The Oka National Park. Here are some pictures.
Today I discovered a beauty of national parks in Canada. The first one for me was Mont Tremblant National Park. It is truly amazing. I did not know that such beautiful nature can be found so close to Montreal. Canada never stops amazing me!
Now I live in Montreal so I pretty much have an idea of what the life is like here. But in my opinion, seeing life in a big city is not enough to understand the country, people’s lives. I think that true understanding comes from seeing small towns, farms, gas stations, countryside.. Seeing a country from the road.
