I'm looking for a curiosity shop in Montreal. A place that might have skulls, pinned insects, strange old medical equipment, bizarre objects, weird sculptures, old books, artifacts etc. I have an uncle who's a collector from Hong Kong, he is dying to see Montreal's dark side. If you have any shop names or addresses please let me know!
We're meeting another family over the holidays while we are both visiting in southern Ontario, and were hoping for something like a children's drop-in play space in Mississauga since it is about midway between our families. Can anyone recommend a place that can entertain our one-year-olds so the adults can visit? Thanks so much!
Hi all, I'm heading to Yellowknife in early March for the northern lights and will be spending hours outdoors as I plan to be photographing heavily and doing time lapse photography as well. I know temperatures will drop to about -30C (-22F) at night and the last time I was in that sort of cold, it was outright painful.
Would like to be better prepared for this big trip. Does anyone have tips on what to pack? The VT Yellowknife's What To Pack Section has only one tip ("pack a fishing rod") so I'm hoping to get more insights from anyone who's been there/lives there.
I know parks are a must - and I'm planning to rent one when I get there since I live in the tropics so there's no point buying one. Does anyone know what the rental price range is like? And any other packing tips will be GREATLY appreciated. Right now my plan is very under-developed. I just know that boots, parkas, and heat packs for the hands/feet are a must. Anything else?
I am currently considering a trip to visit the national parks in Western Canada (Banff, Yoho, Jasper etc). I am a female in my late twenties and I am likely to be travelling alone so I wondered if anyone had any views on whether it is better to take a tour or try to do it mysel?. I have only ever been on one organised tour (to Egypt) which I did really enjoy but normally I travel with one or two friends independently as I find it is cheaper and more flexible.
I have seen a tour with Trek America which looks good - Canadian Parks West trekamerica.com/tours/cnp.ht.... And I am mostly just looking to enjoy the great secenery and get involved in some activities such as canoeing etc.
If anyone has any views on this it would be great to hear from you!
Thanks in advance,
My situation is as following. I am currently in Mexico without any sort of ski equipment at all. Back in Sweden I got a full set ski equipment. I am going to Canada, Whistler in end of January and will stay there for 2 months. I thinking of shipping my skiis, boots to Canada and use it for whole season. As finished, I could ship it all home back to Sweden.
I have googled around looking for shpping information and found DHL, UPS, TNT and SendMyBag. Problem is it seems like I have to pay a fortune to ship them back and forth. That, different to others on Internet, which seems to get away fairly cheap. How do they do it?
DHL and UPS want like $400 CAD for one way.
TNT only ships for buisness
SendMyBag only ships from UK (I could ship my bags to their office in UK then forward it)
So my question is, how the heck do I find cheap shipping back and forth of boots & skis from Sweden to Canada?
Maximum delivery time: Up to 30 days
Dimensions bag 1:
Length: 200 cm
Height: 20 cm
Width: 20 cm
Weight: 7 KG
Dimensions bag 2:
Length: 45 cm
Height: 40 cm
Width: 25 cm
Weight: 7 KG /CODE
Thanks by advance!
Hey, I am going to Whistler this season, and will be ending season in end of April.
My situation is as following. I am currently in Mexico without any sort of ski equipment at all. Back in Sweden I got a full set ski equipment. A friend of mine is coming here to Mexico during Christmas, and when he go home I will fly to Canada. After Canada I will go back to Mexico, and wish to not travel around with my ski gear.
What I was thinking was that he could bring my ski equipment here to Mexico, I can fly with it to Canada and use it for whole season. As finished, I could ship it all home back to Sweden.
Now my questions to you guys:
Thanks by advance!
I have 1 hour and 40 mins transit time in Toronto before my next flight AIRCANADA for my final destination. Is the time enough to catch the flight with hand luggae? given that i hv to clear
IMMIGRATION and customs.
What if i have baggage luggage on carousel, will that surely make me LATE..?
We'll be going to western Canada for a month next year.
We've read in a guide that there are annual passes one can buy for the entrance to the national parks.
As this is - of course - interesting, we tried looking up more info.
Apparently there are 2 kinds of annual passes available:
* Annual – National Parks of Canada
* Annual – Discovery Package
Problem now is that I can't access the website of the Canadian Park Service for more info, there seems to be something wrong with it.
On other websites I've found different info on these 2 passes (another number of parks which are included - different and outdated prices).
Can anyone help me with this ?
