Yoho National Park, Canada

Reading Time: 2 minutes From Kootenay National Park, we drove through the town of Golden and Field into Yoho National Park.  The route took us through rural Canada that we would have otherwise not seen. Yoho is another national park that is well suited for backpacking trips than drive-to scenic spots. However there is a beautiful waterfall Takakkaw falls […]

Kootenay National Park, Canada

Reading Time: 2 minutes Just off of Banff National park are Kootenay National park and Yoho National Park. People tend to skip these national parks often. Especially Kootenay, because there are no drive-to view points on this park. You have to pretty much hike to see anything here. Since we had only given ourselves one full day for this […]

Icefields Parkway, Canada

Reading Time: 3 minutes Icefields Parkway,from Jasper to Lake Louise is a good 230KM highway that connects Banff and Jasper National Parks. It is one the most scenic highways to drive through in Canada. And I can vouch for it.  View of Waterfalls, Glaciers, turquoise blue lakes, and snow covered mountains – thats what you get on this highway.  […]

Quebec City

Reading Time: 3 minutes A warm welcome at the city’s entrance – Montmorency Falls. Are you feeling up to a bike ride, then it’s only a 3-hour roundtrip ride from the city’s center at my snail-like speed. But, once back in the city center, walking works the best. Especially the old Quebec city is small and can be tackled in […]

Mont3-8

Old Montreal walking tour.

Reading Time: 3 minutes Weather is perfect. I am in for a great day in Montreal. Weekday Montreal seems very busy. Corporate crowds march in multiple directions, as I walk in search of the old Montreal that is about to take me back 300-400 years in time. I can only walk aimlessly in the old town, because every nook […]

Montreal-3

Montreal walking tour on a rainy day.

Reading Time: 4 minutes When my airline threw a curve ball at me by landing me in Montreal as opposed to Quebec city, I couldn’t have been more mad at them. I was furious, anxious and annoyed by the fact that my plans got messed up. Yes, even as a seasoned traveler such things still annoy me. Having managed […]
