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…

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…

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…

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….

Saskatoon – Canada

Driving through the prairie is not too exiting, but at the same time not as boring as I got told it would be. I did enjoy the ride and Saskatoon as a cute little city. I think most tourist will just stay there shortly when traveling through Canada. Still I enjoyed my shot stay, especially…

Winnipeg – Canada

The way from Thunder Bay to Winnipeg was actually nicer than I had expected since everyone told me that after Thunder Bay it is getting boring. But up until one or two hours before reaching Winnipeg it was still lots of trees and lakes by the road and I enjoyed the ride. The area I…

Sault Ste. Marie to Thunder Bay – Canada

My road trip lead me from Manitoulin Island to Sault Ste. Marie and then to Thunder Bay. The first part wasn’t too long, just 343 km, but really beautiful according to its scenery. Sadly, stopping was not always possible and I wished so many times my eyes would be capable of taking pictures because I…

Manitoulin Island – Canada

From the Niagara Falls I drove up with my friend to firstly have a stopover in Owen Sound. We would have needed to start really early to catch the last ferry and this way we had an afternoon at the Georgian Bay. Next morning, we drove up to Tobermory to catch the ferry and with…

Toronto – Canada

First, I wasn’t a fan of this huge city. To crowded, dirty, chaotic and I think the contrast to the Algonquin Provincial Park enhanced that feeling even more. But after exploring the waterfront and Toronto at night I started to really like and enjoy this city. I wouldn’t want to live here as I left…

Algonquin Provincial Park – Canada

As I mentioned before I was burned out and even though traveling is fun it is exhausting as well and adds on the stress level that currently is still raised high for me. My first plan was to travel to Nova Scotia and let myself take a short break there but it was really expensive…

Leuven – Belgium

Leuven is a super cute city near Brussels and I visited it for half a day on the way from Maastricht to Brussels. In French it is called Leuven and in Dutch Löwen, which means lions. I started in the surroundings and then made my way into the city. I had some bad luck with…
