Blame Canada! – or New Year in Ontario and Quebec

It so happened that I rarely traveled in the winter to another winter. From winter to summer – yes, often. And from winter to winter – literally several times: to Prague, to Munich and to Transylvania (there is even a review about it, yes). The New Year in Paris, with all due respect to him, I would never call winter – plus 15 days in the afternoon of January 1, it doesn’t have anything to do with it. And I really wanted this winter, in the cold, to a frozen (possibly) Niagara or some other waterfall … I wanted so much that in September 2017 I already bought tickets for NG 2017/2018 in Toronto – however, the malicious Brussels Airlines postponed the date the return flight from January 8 to the 6th, trying to throw two days out of the already short winter holidays in this way, after which the tickets were indignantly handed over, and cold Canada was replaced with a warm cruise on the Persian Gulf.

Travel to Canada (Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, Niagara Falls

At the end of October, a very short trip to Canada took place (Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, Niagara Falls).
The flight of 9.5 hours by airbus was easily transferred. This is not 19, as flew through Amsterdam to Bali! TV, books, and now, he is an unfamiliar airport. The plane filled out customs declarations. A sample of filling (in English and Russian!) Was in the back of a chair in a magazine. Standard questions – where, why, for how long, and the condition for importing foreign currency – an amount over 10,000 Canadian dollars must be declared. Border guards, customs – hard. We were warned that even with a visa, you can’t get into the country, everything will depend on the border guard, he can shorten his stay, and may even consider visiting the country inappropriate (?!).
