Finally the long winter is over, warm Canadian sun has almost melted all the snow, temperatures hitting mid 10s Celsius. Time to continue discovering Canada!
I have always wanted to go to the most remote and wild places, experience real nature. I can totally understand what drives people like Chris McCandless whose story has been portrayed in the movie Into the Wild. And I really love winter. So when my boss asked me if I would like to spend a week in woods with my team and work together on some stuff, my answer has been “YES!”.
I continue to learn local traffic and roads. I am no longer amazed by elder ladies driving huge pick-up trucks, no longer turn my head when I see Lamborghini. But still some situations make me raise my eyebrows.
My biggest surprise in Canada so far is that it is mid-December now, and I have not seen a major snowfall yet. And according to weather forecasts we should not expect any snow on Christmas and New Year’s Eve! How is that possible? Maybe it all is a major scam and I am not really in Canada?
My friends know that I’m in love with trains. And here in Canada trains are awesome. Especially in Holiday season.
The next morning brought sunshine. However in a concrete jungle of Toronto it was not always easy to tell. To me it seems that some streets never receive a sunshine because of highrises.
What are the first pictures come to your mind when you say “Canada”? For me it is hockey, Niagara Falls, and CN Tower! I dedicated my latest road trip to discovering last two!
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!
What is my favorite spot in Montreal? There are several. One of them, is a place beloved my all montrealers, the Mont Royal.
Today I have visited another cool place just 1 hour drive from Montreal – The Oka National Park. Here are some pictures.
