Seattle – USA

Seattle was my, or our, first trip outside of Canada this year. We went the last weekend of February 2020 and now I know that this was the best timing ever considering that not too long after that Corona evolved into a Pandemic. The borders to the USA were closed and travel was not recommended…

Whistler and Squamish – Canada

We went to Whistler, passing by through Squamish as a girl’s trip. It was a very spontaneous action as I saw the post of a girl in a Facebook group stating they still have a spot in a car if someone wants to join for the weekend and this is what I did. Knew none…

North Vancouver – Canada

My first home in Vancouver was found in North Vancouver through AirBnb. It is part of the Vancouver Metro Area, but still a different city to Vancouver itself. The cities are just separated by the Vancouver Harbor and you can get to Vancouver either by ferry or two bridges. I really adore the nature in…

Tofino and Ucluelet – Canada

Tofino is supposed to be the best spot on the west coast for beaches and from what I have seen so far, I couldn’t agree more. It was stunning to experience this beautiful and stormy sea! Especially in winter it is the spot for storm watching and I totally get why. It wasn’t even high…

Nanaimo – Canada

Nanaimo was on the way from Victoria to Tofino and we decided to stay two nights as we got there late night and wanted to leave early after the second. So, we only spend one full day in Nanaimo and unfortunately it was a rainy one. It was during the week so the city was…

Victoria – Canada

Just got to Vancouver, the goal of my road trip from east to west through Canada, but felt as if it’s not time to “settle” yet. I wanted to explore the Vancouver Islands before to see if I rather live there than in this big city Vancouver is. Luckily in my hostel in Vancouver downtown…

Kelowna – Canada

Got to Kelowna late at night but luckily had two more days to explore! Kelowna got recommended to me by a coworker from Germany, he visited it over a decade ago, maybe even two, can’t remember, but since he knew I was going to travel through Canada he told me about this city a couple…

Yoho National Park – Canada

I have to admit, before visiting the Jasper National Park I wasn’t even aware that apart from the Banff National Park there are more National Parks in the Canadian Rockies and was surprised when I saw the sign of the Yoho National Park. Actually, there is another one, the Kootenay National Park north from Jasper,…

Banff National Park – Canada

Driving down the Icefields Parkway from Jasper National Park to Banff National Park I had a bless on the ride. It in fact took me that long, that after reaching Lake Louise it was almost dark and snowing anyway. Yes, snowing, at the End of September (Yes, that means I’m late with this blog for…

Calgary – Canada

Visiting Banff National Park I decided to to da short day trip to Calgary. The city has nice architecture and art installations, but I didn’t stay long enough to really explore much of it, so just did the main tourist spots. Might come back one day. So here are my impressions: Peace Bridge Prince’s Island…

Remembrance Day in Vancouver – Canada

The Remembrance Day is not only celebrated in Canada but in all Commonwealth members and takes place each November 11th honoring the army members that died in duty as well as the veterans. I’m not a specialist for that, so if you want to know more about its history there is plenty of information online. I…

Jasper National Park – Canada

Before this journey, by that I don’t mean to the Jasper National Park only, I can’t even remember when I lastly saw a waterfall or visited a lake because of its beauty. Sure, I went hiking to explore nature, but seeing the Rocky Mountains the ones in the Saxony Swiss for example feel so small….
