Me and my husband had been aving up for years before we finally could go to Canada to visit some old relatives that moved there over a little then 10 years ago. We also wanted to visit them but also thought it was a good excuse to visit this beautiful country with it’s large cities and beautifull nature. Although our relatives live in a small city we went first to visit the town of Toronto. Our relatives advised us to go here and they said it’s truly an beautifull city.We stayed at the Courtyard Toronto Downtown which is a three star hotel and located near the University of Toronto.

Gastown is a neighbourhood in downtown Vancouver. In 1867 the Scot Jack Deighton opened in the center of this neighbourhood a bar called the Deighton House. This bar was next to a sawmill and after a workday many of the workman find their way to the bar. Because of this the bar quickly became the centre of the city. The area quickly developed after a European town. Gastown is still a lively district with many shops, bars and restaurants. Gastown is very centrally located.

The three main streets of the neighbourhood are the Water Street, Powell Street and Car...Read More

Vancouver is a large city but many great attractions and much to do for tourists. I was surprised the first time I visited the city I was amazed by the size of the city.
