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

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.

To the village, to the aunt, to the wilderness, to Canada

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. For what? So that trolleybuses can overtake each other? Stupid … Most likely, the lines are stretched by competing trolleybus fleets, which could not share the costs of laying them?
Dave arrived at around 11 a.m. Quiet green district, perhaps some Sikh temple nearby does not fit into the picture. Surprisingly, the door of the house was open, we entered … So. Kitchen … Bedroom … Continue reading
