Canada. Instructions for use
I dreamed about Canada, but somehow cautiously, timidly and uncertainly. Dreams were hindered by stories about visa difficulties, complete incomprehensions from which side to take on this country, and how…

GORILLA Granby

Victoriously marching around the planet, the year of the eastern monkey, decided to look into a small town with the unpretentious name Granby, which was leisurely located in the southern spurs of Quebec. The city-forming enterprise of this small (only 70K inhabitants) village is the zoo, one of the largest in Canada. The animals that have fled here, almost from all corners of the world, feel safe and calm. Well, it’s straight, almost like runaway fuses from those corners …
We, walking along the shady alleys of the park, became interested in aviaries with our closest (by evolution, and not by the registry office) relatives – primates. The Afrika Pavilion is essentially an invasion of the rainforest and the African savannah at the same time. Without a doubt, it is one of the main exciting motives for a visit to the Granby Zoo. 3 here we are all curious visitors, we suddenly feel that we left North America on another continent! In the very center, about ten species of the most beloved African animals await you. Continue reading

Calgary, Banff, Whistler, Vancouver

Distance Banff – Whistler 795 km. When we left Banff, it was snowing heavily. It turned out that in Canada, roads are not cleaned. I had to go on a rut done by cars. Slippery, snow drifts, disgusting visibility on mountain roads – it became clear that it would take a long time to go.
With difficulty we got to the city of Golden – and here a surprise awaited us. It turned out that the road (hi-wei No. 1) was blocked due to bad weather, according to the road workers, until the evening or until tomorrow !!! Nothing to do, had to hang in Golden. After talking with the old-timers, we found out that the road is blocked regularly once or twice a year (you have to get in this way), that the road is often blocked in both directions (that is, in Golden you can get stuck permanently) and that the road can be blocked for several days ( and two, and three, and four) depending on the weather.

Overseas trip to Canada

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
