I have always dreamed about big journeys and adventures. I have been always amazed by ship navigators, long haul truck drivers and everyone else who go far. I have watched and read the “Long Way Round” and all other Charley Boorman’s adventures countless times, I could not stop reading the amazing book “Long Ride Home” and many travel and overlanding stories and blogs. I have always dreamed to go on a big trip. The life has given me a chance…
As you may know, I am not a big fan of flying. But I admire aircrafts as engineering marvels. There are many aviation fans worldwide, and many of them have quite an interesting hobby – plane spotting. I decided to see that is it like?
Here is a small bonus for those who liked my story about truck drag racing in Saint Joseph.
I love trucks. I have grown up around trucks. I love trucking culture, trucker slang, long roads, smell of diesel fuel, sound of diesel engine, and everything that goes with it. When I moved to Canada, I really wanted to get more into it. But it was not before this weekend when I had a chance to do it!
I made another dream come true – I have seen the Formula 1 race in Montreal!
This weekend I was entertaining myself by visiting firefighters festival in Laval, on Montreal’s north shore.
If you have ever traveled north on Autoroute 15 in Laval, you couldn’t have missed a huge rocket with NASA logo in it. Ever since I have seen it on my first week in Montreal I wanted to find out more what is there. There is Montreal’s Cosmodome. It is the only museum in Canada dedicated solely to space exploration.
What is my favorite spot in Montreal? There are several. One of them, is a place beloved my all montrealers, the Mont Royal.
