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…

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…

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….

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…

Antwerp – Beglium

My road trip came to an end at Antwerp. It started with a rainy afternoon but luckily the last few daylight hours cleared the rain away and I started exploring. My hostel the Antwerp Backpackers Hostel was located a little bit further from the center in an area full of immigrants and thus a different…
