Canadian cuisine is hardly original. In gastronomic terms, Canadians do not shine with imagination. When asked what to try in Canada, french fries, burgers and donuts come to mind. However, something unique in this regard, the founders of hockey still have. Each province has its own traditional dish. Quebec is famous for ice cream, which consists of snow and maple syrup, and rural residents collect and harvest young fern shoots. But let’s talk about everything in order: consider the basic culinary preferences of Canadians. Continue reading
When I was looking for housing, I was unpleasantly surprised by the lack of hotels in Vancouver with the required configuration – there were no triple rooms for a reasonable price, therefore I resorted to airbnb.com, where I almost immediately found a good option. And there, in the house of a certain “free artist” Dave, we headed in the morning after leaving the hospitable cruise ship.
The first question is about Vancouver: from the windows of the taxi I noticed that along many streets there are not 2 lines of trolleybus wires (round trip), but as many as 4, however, they do not intersect with each other.

In the summer, my husband was sent on a business trip to Canada. Naturally, I decided to join him, and even take our two teenage children. After all, there is rarely the opportunity to ride so far!
All problems began with obtaining visas. This is something – getting visas to Canada. For some reason, we were suspected of intending to emigrate to this country and did so with enviable tenacity for two months! My husband was given a visa from the first call, and my children were refused on the grounds that I was going to emigrate there. I was at a loss. Why should I emigrate alone after so many years of marriage? But there was nothing to do, I had to play by their rules and collect a bunch of references. In the end, my boss got angry and gave me a certificate on the official letterhead of the enterprise that I was not going to emigrate. Help was on the official form and with a seal! I was somehow ashamed to take such a linden to the embassy, but strangely enough, they willingly took it, and even gave me, finally, a visa. Two days before the trip! I want to add that all the hotels we have been paid for, and the tickets are non-refundable. So the hassle is still that! Continue reading
