arriving on a Monday evening and going to magic show; there all day Tuesday & Wednesday with a 12 year old (we are 65); want to do and see as much as we can. Should we book tours or do it ourselves? Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
Better to book a tour or try to do it on your own? Arriving on a Monday evening, going to the magic show; will be there all day Tuesday and Wednesday - leaving on Thursday morning. We have a 12 year old and want to do and see as much as possible (possibly including the aero tram and the jet boat). Suggestion greatly appreciated!
I'm thinking of driving up to Montreal for a few days with my 17 year old son. I'm looking for suggestions on where to stay and what to see. My budget is very tight, so I need to make this as cheap as possible.
We're thinking of taking a trip to Montreal during the first week of September. We'll be flying in and won't have a car. Unfortunately, our ability to navigate steps, hills, and long walks will be somewhat limited. Do you have any suggestions about where to stay (up to $225 per night), as well as what attractions to see, including organized city and water tours?
We will be arriving on Oct by cruise ship. Since it is a Sunday all the car rental agencies are closed. I have contacted several tour guides but they are booked. Would love some ideas on how to get around and spend time from 8AM to 6PM. We would love to see Gros Morne but the cruise ship charges $179pp.
We have some time off at the end of September and are considering renting an RV and driving around Newfoundland. I did a quick check and many sites seem to close around mid-September. Is the end of September a good time to visit or should we wait until next year? We've never been to Newfoundland so we want to make the most of this first visit!
Would be grateful for any good bar/club recommendations for the York area of Toronto. I'm Working at the rexall centre in August and will be finishing pretty late so looking for places to grab a drink on the way back to the hotel.
In a couple of days time I will be hoovering into Montreal for a few days. Does anyone have any suggestions on bars where there's not a bad sized crowd midweek and the clientelle is of a more mature age group?
Any help much appreciated.
Hey everyone - flying into Vancouver in a few weeks time just for a two week trip and just wondering if anyone any local knowledge or experience about the best way to travel to Fernie from there, preferably via Banff. I have looked at the bus, train and renting a car, and renting a car is looking like the best option. Thanks :)
I am interested in travelling to winnipeg for school,specifically u of m, and have never been there before. I would also be travelling alone. I would like to know from other travellers their perspective on the crime problem in winnipeg? how bad is it?
Me and my friends are planning a four day road trip to New Brunswick from Montreal.
This will be our first visit to the province. We were wondering what city(ies) should we visit. (We are not planning to party late night, outdoor activities will be our preference).
Given that we are all students, budget is also our consideration ($500 per person)
Also, is it better to drive from Montreal or shall we take train/bus?
Friends of mine and me are planning an extended hiking trip in the Rockies near Banff NP. We will be traveling by bus, and therefore need to plan our hiking route with the reachable trail heads/endpoints in mind.
Does anyone know of a map(!) which shows all the Greyhound bus stations and stops? So far we have only found a list of all stations (the names), which is of no use to us at all as we have no idea where these stations actually are...
My father Thomas 'Peter' Howard, as a young man spent a year by the Qu'appelle river growing grain on the quarter section held by his uncle Richard John Everall, so that 'Jack' could return home to Shropshire to visit his family. He sowed, cultivated and harvested the grain which he took to numbered bins by the railway line where it was picked up and taken East, and he received a cheque in due course. He was quite alone for this time, but was welcome in a neighbouring home presided over by 'Granny" Wilson who I believe was Scots. She encouraged him to do a world tour, and gave the name of relatives by marriage, Idiens in New South Wales in Australia. He did do so and kept a diary, but sadly, we have had to rely on verbal memories for his Canadian time. He passed through on his homeward journey, but broke his journey further west at Swift Current where he worked during the winter of 1929/30 for a man called Lundqist at a line camp I think. He said the 'tumbleweeds' were mustard plants. Mrs Everall, born Mary Ann Howard in Bishops Castle in 1863, did not linger long in the area, but if anyone has news of her, I'd be glad to know of it. Does any of this tally with any records at the museum or memories of an oldest inhabitant? He said that the young tended to pick up their sticks and move to more favourable places, but I see that this area like many others has gained residents in the intervening period. Someone may have a letter or a memory of the period. Anything about the Wilsons or the Everalls would be very interesting.
