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
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. But the idea – the idea remained, and therefore, tickets were bought again in 2018, only now not by Brussels, but by the trustworthy Air Canada Continue reading
Antigua and Barbuda is locally called Wadadli, and much of the island also includes this “Wadadli” as part of the name. The local Wadadli beer is reminiscent of the Dominican President and the Barbados Banks. The diphthong in the name of the island in English leads to the pronunciation of “Antigu”, and Barbuda rather sounds like “Barbuda” – American patterns are not grafted here.
They flew well. The noble West Jet allowed to carry as much as a whole piece of free baggage on flights outside of Canada and the United States. True, feeding, as everywhere else today on our mainland, relied only on money – or bring it with us, and we will pour you a drink and give a napkin. We did just that. A 5-hour flight nevertheless breaks the day regime. Continue reading
