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…

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….

Edmonton – Canada

I think I somehow choose the wrong time to visit Edmonton. But it can’t be all exciting while traveling. A few places I wanted to go to where closed because it was off season and they used the time for renovations. But that gave me some free time for unwanted shopping… Somehow the washing machine…

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…

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

At 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…

Québec City – Canada

Some people told me that Québec is worth a short visit and I have to agree. Sadly two out of three day’s it was raining and storming so I wasn’t able to see all of what I had planned to. I went out the first day because it didn’t looked like rain would come soon…

Montreal – Canada

Montréal or as it seems the citizens of Québec call it “Moreal” was my first stop in Canada. I landed on the 10th of August late at night and was surprised how fast the immigration process worked. Just needed to show my passport, the permit and my finances. Then I got a document and was…
