Vancouver have been blessed with geographical location. It is a Canada’s gateway to Pacific, with business and trade flowing through it. But for a regular citizen, what is more important, probably, is that the location is just incredibly beautiful, with so many places to go and things to see. Beaches, mountains, forests, waterfalls, lakes – almost anything you can wish for is just a short drive from the city.

I am very impressed with beauty of nature in British Columbia. I could never think that spectacular views of mountains could be so abundant within big city; that so many lakes, waterfront parks and trails could be just a 20 minute drive from busy downtown with skyscrapers. I try to explore and discover more of it whe I have a slightest chance.

I really love trains. Big and powerful machines! Montreal is really great place for railfans – it has amazing railroad museum, the Exporail. Is it the biggest railroad museum in Canada with over 140 pieces of rolling stock! A great place to feel yourself a kid again, and discover more about railroad history and how it helped to shape Canada!
