When I get to a new city, I always try to get to the highest point and take a look at the city from the top. There are several high observation points in Vancouver area, but I was waiting for good weather to enjoy it.
Our world always evolves, so do means of transportation. Not so long ago people walked for hundreds of kilometers, rode horses. Nowdays you can get to most locations on Earth in less then 48 hours, with very little effort. Our most advanced mean of transportation is called aeroplane. Many people love flying on them.

I have always wanted to see a different Canada, something that is not huge and crazy Quebec or Ontario. And in addition, I really miss the ocean. So there was a perfect destination for me – Canada’s Ocean Playground!
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 woke up super excited. I was going to see the city that millions dream about. Many consider New York as a center of our world. Is it definitely the biggest business, financial and cultural center of North America. Thousands of movies shot there, books and songs written about it, documentaries shot.

Today I have visited another cool place just 1 hour drive from Montreal – The Oka National Park. Here are some pictures.
