The provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island are part of the Atlantic Canada region, which is home to Academic culture and is famous for its unique accent, natural beauties (especially in coastal areas), the historical beauty of Halifax, as well as fishing and shipping industry.
Quebec is one of Canada’s most unique regions. Quebec is known for a large number of cultural events, the classical architecture of Montreal and, of course, for its maple syrup and the national dish “Putin”. Quebec is a great way to see the Old World of Europe without traveling outside of North America!
Ontario is Canada’s largest province with endless travel options: from Canada’s largest metropolis, Toronto, to the national bilingual capital of Ottawa, from Niagara Falls to the vast desert in the north of the province and the Great Lakes. 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 area around Churchill, Manitobe, a lot of interesting things. This area is often called the capital of polar bears. They have been living here since the founding of the city in 1771. From October to early December, up to 1,200 polar bears gather at the place where the Churchill River flows into the Hudson Bay, waiting for the bay to freeze to resume hunting for seals. At this time, many tourists come here to see these magnificent animals. The population of the city is increasing by more than 10 times. There were times when some of the most curious animals came into the city!
Note that more than 300 days a year you can observe the northern lights. The easiest way to get to Churchill is by plane, but if you want to see from the land the plains and Lake Manitoba that the fur traders once crossed, take a 36-hour “tour” on the VIA train coming from Winnipeg. Continue reading
