3 Weeks in Canada - East and West Coast


So, how to spend 3 weeks in Canada?

Well, it was a looooong time ago when two friends, Jerry and I set foot on the Canadian land. It was a very picturesque trip with many sights on the way. Although some time has passed, the memories are still fresh! Have a look at our 3-week travel route in Canada and its travel captures :)

3 Weeks in Canada - Our Travel Route

VANCOUVER - VANCOUVER ISLAND - VANCOUVER - TRAIN TO SEATTLE (US) - FLIGHT TO BUFFALO - NIAGARA FALLS - QUEBEC - MONTREAL - OTTAWA - TORONTO

3 Weeks in Canada - Vancouver

We flew into Vancouver airport and went straight to the port to catch the ferry to the remote Vancouver island. What we did on the lovely island, I will save for the next section, so let's skip that part and pretend, we are already back from the island trip ;) Ok, so back in Vancouver city, we chose couchsurfing as our way of accommodation - well, this decision turned out to a pretty crazy adventure with some extremely friendly, open-minded and party people. They invited us to dance all day long on their yellow coloured party bus, driving the roads down at the so called Pride parade. Definitely an experience I will never forget.

Beside of that, we rented bikes and drove along the Vancouver coast. That is something I really recommend you to do, as you see the beautiful nature which surrounds this million city. A good way to spend days in Vancouver is also by simply sitting on the beach and enjoying some sunrays. In winter, make sure to ski at Grouse or Cypress mountain.

GO SKIING AT THE NEARBY MOUNTAINS

TAKE A FERRY TO THE VANCOUVER ISLAND

3 Weeks in Canada - Vancouver Island

This was the most memorable part of our Canada trip (well, at least for me). Make sure to visit this island, if your wanderlust bring you to this lovely country. The best word that describes this island would be probably wilderness. Imagine driving the roads and suddenly spotting a bear at the side of the road. Awesome :) Or parking your car near the seaside, seating down for a sandwich break and all of a sudden seeing a family of killer whales. Also something you should do is to book a boat trip brining you out on the ocean where you have a great chance to see the acrobatic Humpback whales. Not only animals make this island special, also the nature is extremely picturesque with all its diversity. I was mainly impressed by the West wild coast with its huge boulders, sandy beaches and vast forest. If this is too much nature for you, there is always an option to visit the biggest city on the island, called Victoria.

3 Weeks in Canada - Niagara Falls

The famous Niagara Falls. Honestly, I have mixed feelings about them. I would say, go and make yourself a picture. To see the gigantic waterfalls is a great adventure, as well as to take a boat and get close to the majestic water paradise. However, I was somehow disappointed when I got to know the surroundings of this natural wonder - a look-a-like Las Vegas town at the Canadian side of the waterfalls. Who needs that, really?? My recommendation? Visit the Niagara Falls during the day but don't stay overnight. Continue your journey.

3 Weeks in Canada - Quebec City

Quebec is a lovely French-speaking city. I pretty much liked the Chateau Frontenac (castle), the city center with narrow streets and lovely shops. Make sure to spend a few days in this city in order to have the time to explore the old town with the castle, the Battlefields park and as a half-day trip idea outside the city - the Montmorency Falls Park with its giant waterfall.

3 Weeks in Canada - Montreal

Unfortunately the weather was not on our side when we visited this famous student and nightlife city - Montreal. We made just a short stop in this city, so I cannot really tell much about it. I heard many good things about it, so make sure to give it a try when there. Well, the weather got better on the next day when we drove out of the city and visited the basilica of St. Joseph Oratory of Mount Royal.

3 Weeks in Canada - Ottawa

My friends and I were blessed to visit Ottawa. Another city which should be on your bucket list! I was stunned to see the famous Parliament Hill, it is a fascinating building from outside and inside! I remember Ottawa as a very green city with lots of lush parks, and many cycling roads. We went for a stroll in one of the parks near the Parliament Hill, called the Jacques Cartier Park. Lovely!

3 Weeks in Canada - Toronto

I really liked Toronto due to its wealth of international restaurants and awesome clothes shops, not to mention all the sports shop with high-quality sports equipment. The guys needed of course to visit the Hockey Hall of Fame, I guess this must be really interesting if you are a big hockey fan! I well remember also our boat trip to the nearby islands. It gives you a good opportunity to do shoot a perfect picture of the city's skyline!

Canada is one of those countries I would be happy to return to. There is so much more to see than the world-known cities - Toronto, Montreal, Quebec, Ottawa and Vancouver City. As we all know, there are some pretty picturesque national parks in Canada - especially the Banff in Alberta must be a eye-catching place! For all hiking and nature excited followers out there, in 2017, there is free entrance to all national parks in Canada! ;)

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

    Merit Glitters (Friday, 05 January 2024 22:17)

    Do not invest in any trading platform, there is nothing such as get rich quick, it doesn't always end well. I was also a victim to this kind of scam. An Asian girl introduced me to ibitminers and i got really deep into their shit and all i can say is these scammers are good at what they do. I was allowed to withdraw a little amount which i believed was to build my trust but they sucked me dried and i never got my capital after all was said and done. I lost a ton of asset and when i reported to local authorities i was told since crypto is untraceable, there is nothing they can do about it. I couldn't get any help from them until i contracted the service of a professional ethical hacker. He hacked into the eth wallet address i made payment to and retrieved my stolen crypto and he showed me the transaction history of these scammers, I was in shock.

    A revolution in banking has been brought about by the digital era, with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin taking center stage. But there are also risks associated with this emerging field, the most frightening of which being the possibility of losing digital assets. This is when Osecybersailing and it's team steps in like a shining knight, equipped with the formidable weapon of Bitcoin recovery. My valuable Bitcoin was stolen via a technical error, leaving me hopeless. My dreams were almost dashed by the cold reality of irreversible blockchain transactions. However, there was a ray of hope that emerged from the shadows when I came across Osecybersailing and it's team. Equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and years of experience, their team of professionals painstakingly navigated the blockchain maze, following even the smallest digital traces of my misplaced funds. The fact that my Bitcoin appeared, safe and sound, back in my wallet in a very short amount of time was a credit to their commitment and competence. It restored my faith in the security and reliability of the crypto ecosystem. But my testimony is more than just a celebration of Osecybersailing technical abilities. It also serves as a rallying cry for ethical cryptocurrency stewardship.
    If you find yourself lost in the depths of lost Bitcoin, facebook Account and Whatsapp hacking to check if your partner is cheating, then let Osecybersailing and it's team guide you towards the light of redemption.
