  • Day42

    Happy Canadaday! After a short trip to niagarafalls (very astonishing but a lot of tourists and amusement stuff) we arrived in the blue mountains, where we do some luxury camping (glamping) for the next days - and Lars finally got to give his knive a real purpose and make a manly fire

  • Day42

    Drove from Montreal to Toronto today. After arriving in little China checked out Toronto old town, the Distillery district and CN tower. Ran in to a ballgame between red sox and blue jays by accident - really awesome city! Tomorrow we are heading to niagra falls and the blue mountains for some glamping - probably no wifi for the next few days.

  • Day40

    Nicht immer online, daher mit leichter Verspätung. Die Touri Attraktion schlechthin gesehen. Trotz der Menschenmassen sehr beeindruckend. Wo man in Island darauf setzt, alles möglichst ursprünglich zu lassen, pflastert man hier auf beiden Seiten alles mit Hotels und Kram zu. Auch ein Ansatz...
    Danach ging es aufs Land, wo wir die nächsten zwei Nächte in einem Luxus Zelt verbringen werden.

  • Day39

    Nachmittags hier angekommen und nochmal schnell die Stadt unsicher gemacht. Sehr schön, erinnert teilweise an Manhattan. Zufällig sind wir dann noch bei den Blue Jays gelandet, rechtzeitig zum sechsten Inning...

  • Day41

    Super guter Tag an einen wunderschönen Ort: Georgian Bay bei den Blue Mountains. Tagsüber Kajak mit Blick auf das Ski Gebiet und abends mit Anne getroffen (Freundin von Kimi aus der Uni). Rippchen gegessen und Lagerfeuer am See. Besser geht's nicht. Oder kaum...denn zu trinken gab es Bud light;-)

  • Day6

    So starting the day off at BMO for a new debit card , us girls put on our Canada 150 hats and hit the road to Macdonalds for breakfast, mostly cause we got up too late for the free breakfast at the Super 8 - which was super and does take dogs, so will look at this spot for the return trip. Coffee cups full ,we headed south .The roads were mostly great except for some areas of construction.Scenery gradually changed from rugged rock and trees to gentle rolling hills. It reminded me a lot of driving west last summer to Vernon for Matt and Amber ' s wedding .We did drive off the road north of Barrie to top up the gas ' didn't want the same stressed out feeling as yesterday.At a very out if the way gas station we met up with an indigenous lady from Fort Francais, who has been following us on the highway.She did remark on how us Albertan ' do put the peddle to the metal! !!.no argument with that.So finally after about 6.5 hr we pulled into Barrie and a non description motel 'I think we are at a Holiday Inn but who knows - mush brain at this point.
    Dinner across the street . NOW time for wine -jammies and The Bachelorette.

  • Day313

    Von Chicago aus startete unser erster Roadtrip in den USA, also ab ins Auto und Richtung Niagara Fälle. Glücklicherweise durften wir mit unserem Auto auch in Kanada fahren. So haben wir auf unserem Weg noch ein kurzem Zwischenstopp in Detroit am Henry Ford Museum und im Greenfield Village gemacht und sind danach weiter nach Toronto. In Toronto haben wir wieder etwas Sightseeing gemacht und waren auf der kleinen Erholungsinsel der Einwohner.
    Danach ging es dann auch zu den Niagara Fällen. Die Nacht zuvor haben wir noch bei Crystal Beach geschlafen und waren dort baden. Das ist sozusagen am oberen See, der dann in die Tiefe stürzt. Bei den Niagara Fällen angekommen, waren wir echt begeistert und erstaunt über die Unmengen an Wasser die dort runterstürzen. Aber warum dort manche für viel Geld mit dem Boat ranfahren und sich nass spritzen lassen versteh ich nicht ... ne ordentliche Dusche bekommt man doch auch schon für weniger Geld.

  • Day4

    Well after leaving White City Fri.early morning,Pauli drove 2 straight hours in a wicked thunder and lightening storm,which may have followed us from Calgary and may just follow us all across Canada.We passed from the SK.prairie and into Manitoba .The scenery changed to rolling hills and more trees as we headed for Winnipeg,however the wind never let up one bit.That bypass around Winnipeg was a great time saver and we were making such good time we stopped and had our own lunch at a Petro Can picnic spot. I tell you that cooler, Debbie and Mark ,is a godsend.It is filled to the brim with ice bottles,healthy food choices-WW remember!.An 8 hr. drive got us to our next destination in Kenora,Lake of the Woods and to the home of our friends and hosts ,Deirdre and Bob.Nitro and Bentley were thrilled to see their 2 legged friends again and no ,we did not get licked to death.Bob was thrilled that we arrived with a good supple of his favourite -jujubes! Drinks were served while we sat and got aquainted with their good friends Marilyn and John,visiting from England.The fun continued into dinner ,expertly cooked by our hosts and served by our private British Butler.Early to bed ,again while a thunder and lightening storm raged ,gave us a good night's sleep,and after a hearty breakfast we again hit the road.Driving through the Shield saw us avoiding any OPP,enjoying the beautiful scenery and of course listening to a favourite Canadian son-Gord Lightfoot.Thanks Mark for the reminder.We arrived in Thunder Bay at our destination of Best Western,however the reservation was missing.But ,oh well, we charmed the clerk into a seniors discount-so all is well.So then we decided , because we have sat for 3 days ,let's go for a walk.A friend of Pauli's grew up here so we walked by her house and took a picture,then kept on going on the walk along the river.So guess what happened next! Another thunder and lightening storm caught us full on.We hunkered down under a walkway construction site till it let up then headed out walking again.Needles to say, we got caught again .It poured and we had about another 30 minute walk ahead of us. So coming around a corner we said we will just stand under somebodies porch ,and as we said this a guy was actually standing outside on his deck and invited us to find shelter. His name was Kevin -he lived on Wolverine St and worked for OPP.Calling us a "Roach" taxi -really-he saw us off on our way back to the hotel.So here we sit-wet clothes hanging out to dry-jammies on -wine poured and dinner once again out of our cooler.Lord Thundering-we are in Thunder Bay!!!.Next stop the Sioux.And please, no more thunder and rain.Read more

  • Day5

    Sunday morning we were checking out at the Best Western in Thunder Bay to discover I had lost my debit card,probably at the service station in Dryden.No problem ,as I have "lots of money" and more plastic cards.Driving through the Canadian shield was beautiful with red rock faces,magnificent lakes and vistas of multiple colored trees . Can't help but think how nice it will be driving through in the fall.We listened to Canadian music, including Gordon McKeemam and his Rhythm Boyd ,all the while playing my imaginary spoons.We stopped in Wawa long enough to take some pictures of the Canadian Goose and get eaten by black flies. Some of my PEI people will remember how allergic I am to those pesky bastards.Pauli 's superb driving got us across the northland ,however our gas tank was getting low.Thought we might just get caught pushing our Lincoln through yet another thunder and lightening storm.Luck prevailed as an Esso came into view. We have never seen so many full service stations as out here.So finally after 8 hours driving and a few fun conversations with family and friends we arrived in Sault Saint Marie.Nice overnight at the Days Inn -more wine -good meal and ready for our next adventureRead more

  • Day7

    Day 6 -guess what,another thunder and lightening storm as we checked out of our hotel in Barrie and headed south on the 400.Pauli was driving again and those TO drivers are nuts!!!.We could barely see out the window!.We had time to kill so headed for the Tanger Outlet Mall -like we need to buy anything. But those of you who know us best,know we LOVE to shop. After paying exhorbent tax prices at the Mall we headed out for Peterborough. Now we spent time in Peterborough 2 yr ago for Whitney and Michael's wedding and it was easy to find coming off the 401 from TO airport This time however we seemed to be going in circles. We could have used Jim's compass cause I am sure we drove the same backcountry roads again and again..Not to mention ,we could not find a Tim's to save our lives! !!.My first great niece or nephew for a dark roast at about 1600 hr.And people call PEI the land of the "falling trees".I tell you Ontario is the land of the derelict barns -I have never seen so many old falling down barns in my life.But the countryside is beautiful.with farms and horses and gentle rolling fields.Finally found Peterborough but no hotels available,we were told.I checked out the Motel 6 -OMG-NOT going to happen. So online we got the Quality Inn - I think.Skipped across to Boston Pizza for a couple of brewskis and food of any kind at this point .Ok -not bad ' good enough as my seester says .Now if we could just find the best butter tarts ever made,we would be in heaven.Tomorrow is another day but if the sun continues to shine we just might find a golf course. Stay tuned out thereRead more
