Off on the tourist trail we went! A 2-hour drive along the wide roads with big vehicles, past several Canadian wineries saw us parking up outside the Radisson at Niagara Falls. Ontario is host to two-thirds of Canada’s vineyards, and in 2015 was responsible for 62% of the total 56.2 million litres produced. Due to the weather patterns ice wine is produced in Canada. Ice wine is something I’d never heard of, but is a type of dessert wine produced from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine. I’ll report back when I’ve tried some. My first view of the Horseshoe Falls was from a view point just across the road from the hotel. It is breath taking, with the thunder of the water and the misty spray swirling up from the bottom ... read more

This morning I got dressed and headed across the street to a bakery….The Red Ganache. They had just taken fresh croissants and cranberry orange muffins out of the oven. The smell simply filled the air. I enjoyed talking with the owner and staff. Of course I bought the croissants, muffins, plus chocolate eclairs, and a couple pastries for us to try. We divided everything by 4 and each had a taste of everything I brought home. It was great with morning coffee!! It was raining, but we took a chance and drive down by the falls. We found a parking place, but it was a long walk to the falls, plus it was $30 and we weren’t going to be there that long!! So we just drive by and took pictures, hoping the weather would be ... read more

2e épisode des avances hautes-canadiennes. Alors. Départ de Belleville, direction Royal Botanical Garden. Geneviève a fait ses devoirs. Il y a plusieurs restos autour dudit jardin. Pas besoin de se faire de lunch. On se tape un s***load de trafic en chemin alors quand on arrive, les filles sont affamées. Surtout qu’on a gossé pour trouver la bonne entrée et qu’on a dû arrêter dans un parking parce-que Delphine avait trop envie (On a trainé le petit pot alors c’est pas trop compliqué) On se dépêche, on paye les billets et on demande le chemin pour le resto. Arrivés devant le resto…. C’est fermé. Pas la fin du monde, il y a aussi un café. Également fermé. Je retourne à l’accueil pour m’informer des options bouffe et demander au dude ce qu’il pensait que je voulais ... read more

So it’s a big day today, a bus trip to the mighty Niagara Falls. And we know this because at last count we’ve received 19 reminders from the tour company, via email and text, and I think I might have even seen a carrier pigeon lurking outside the window earlier this morning. I suppose it’s just vaguely possible that you might forget that you’d booked a tour to one of the world’s great natural wonders, but surely only if it had been a really bad day in the amnesia ward. Our guide introduces himself as John, and he tells us he came to visit Toronto from London back in 1969 and never went home. The trip takes us round the east side of Lake Ontario, which probably isn’t all that overly exciting, mostly flat with lots ... read more

http://www.heygo.comMy first four with Daniel and what a delightful tour it was starting with a huge number of Canada Geese and Mallards all searching for food in the snow covered grass. Dufferin Islands is a quiet and secluded area not far from Horseshoe Falls and contains several small islands connected by bridges and footpaths. These man-made islands are teeming with life As we walked along the roadway we heard how the area had been developed from 1794 when permission was granted to erect a saw and grist mill at the eastern end of the islands. This was followed by an iron ore mill constructed in 1796. The 1900’s was the start of how the area changed. We stepped onto one of the many islands crisscrossing different trails across the snow. The trees in the sunshine casting ... read more

Niagara Falls consists of two waterfalls on the Niagara River, which marks the border between New York between and Ontario, Canada: the American Falls, located on the American side of the border, and the Canadian or Horseshoe Falls located on the Canadian side. This tour was on the Canadian side. The water that runs over the falls comes from the Great Lakes. Ninety percent of the water goes over the Horseshoe Falls. Originally, as much as 5.5. billion gallons of water per hour flowed over the falls. Today the amount is controlled by the Canadian and American governments to slow erosion. In addition, some of the water is diverted to provide power for the United States and Canada, making Niagara Falls the largest source of electric power in the world. The Horseshoe Falls are 170 feet ... read more

Le 20 août 2020, Aujourd'hui, nous avons une journée très chargée au programme. En effet, nous devons faire un peu moins de 4 heures de route pour nous rendre à Niagara Falls. Afin de couper le trajet, nous allons aussi visiter le zoo de Toronto. Mais le zoo de Toronto n'est pas l'un de ces petits zoo que l'on peut visiter rapidement pendant 2 ou 3 heures. C'est plutôt l'affaire d'une grosse journée de visite, au terme de laquelle on sort complètement lessivés...Mais c'est pile sur notre chemin et ça tente beaucoup à toute la famille. Alors, à 8:30 tapant, tout le monde est dans la voiture, les valises aussi, et on part. On donne une gravol à notre grande Danaé, si sensible au mal des transports. Ouf, elle sera bien reposée à son arrivée au ... read more

As regular readers of this travel blog will probably recall, my last published scribblings covered our amazing trip out east to Indochina and before that our incredible adventure (also, in an easterly direction) to Australia and New Zealand. But, for 2019 we thought that it was time for a change; time to escape the tortuous grind of the 'Deal or No Deal' Brexit; time to erase from the memory, the embarrassing spectacle of which Prime Ministerial hopeful managed to smoke, inject or inhale the most illicit drugs in their past; and time to troll off to some place, where drinking a milkshake is considered more fun than chucking them about!! And with that in mind, it was no contest really. We simply decided to take the advice of American author Horace Greeley from 1865 and slightly ... read more
