The ninth day of our trip we spent in Canada, Jasper National Park to see, to walk and enjoy nature. We also made a trip to Maligne Canyon.At Maligne Canyon is a limestone gorge with walls up to 50 feet deep fall. The gorge is one of the most spectacular in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The Maligne River plunges down deep into the canyon here and you hear the roar of the water and feel depending on the spray of water even in the face. Several hiking trails lead through the Canyon of varying length and difficulty. Since none of the paths is fixed and is with steps, tree roots and all stairways and paths, its not for disabled people. Along the way, or the trails as they are called here, can...Read More

Hotel

The Tonquin Inn is not directly in the center. We had to drive through the town until we almost reached the hotel at the other end. You can go to just a mile from the city center on foot, but there are also plenty of free parking in the center, if you do not want to walk. The situation is not so bad. Although it is not something outside surrounded by nature, but surrounded by streets. These are but little traffic at night, so here it is left in peace. In the immediate vicinity of the hotel there are other hotels. Bars, restaurants and shops can be found here. The room looked appealing at first glance, but also very small. Fact that we had two beds of 1,35 m is to be really small space hard...Read More

Hotel | "A good hotel in Clearwater"

The Clearwater lodge is a 3-star hotel in Clearwater, British Columbia. The hotel advertises that it offers modern, spacious rooms and has good transport connections. Particularly its mostly self-catering accommodation, because many of the rooms are equipped with a kitchenette. The hotel front desk is staffed around the clock. As we drove into the parking lot of the hotel, which incidentally is very large and free, the hotel made a good impression immediately. The facade is painted a light apricot and looks very well maintained. The house sits on a large pitched roof, which is supported by columns, so there in front of the hotel is a very large covered area. The hotel has at this point, so...Read More

When holiday one needs to eat and we decided on our second day to go to the restaurant which was right near our hotel. It was a bit of a standard restaurant which you will many more with mainly meat dishes, a few fish and a few vegatarian dishes. At this restaurant they serve standard meals as hambugers and steak and sometimes it’s very pleasnt to just have something normal.It was our second night at the hotel and we had a full day of sightseeing and decided to pop into the hotel to relax a bit. It really makes you tired so we decided not to go far. This restaurant looked really inviting from the outside as well as the outside. Lots of warm colours were used on the outside and friendly sig...Read More

Attraction

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. There is truly a lot to do in this city and you can easily spend two weeks here. We only stayed here for one week but we took some time to visit the aquarium of Vancouver.Although you wouldn’t really expect it the aquarium is a very popular tourist attraction. It’s located in the beautiful Stanley Park and that’s how we came across it. Stanley park is a beautiful park, especially on a beautiful sunny day. We decided to go to the aquarium because it came highly regarded.There are several areas at the aquarium as...Read More
