      2 night trip with 3 year old and 4 month old

      Algonquin Provincial Park Aug 11, 2015 at 1:04 PM

      Looking for suggestion for a good route/lake to go back country with kids. My husband and I are fairly experienced with canoe and portages but this is our first time with kids. Ideally somewhere with good swimming and sandy/beachy sites that you can walk out and swim. Would like to keep the trip out to a site to 4 hours max....little nervous about taking 4 month old out to middle of nowhere.... They should be fine in canoe for an hour or so....hopefully! Any advice/suggestions welcome! We are going in 2 weeks-August 28-30

    • Motoski, Sled dog, trekking in snow shoes - Quebec province - Christmas.. where is snow guaranteed?

      Province of Quebec Aug 21, 2015 at 11:49 PM

      We are planning to spend our Christmas break in Canada (approx 20- 30 December). We will be flying in and out of Montreal. The plan is to spend in total 2-3 days in Montreal and/or Quebec at the beginning / end of the stay and the rest of the stay in a chalet in the snow.
      We would like to do outings with sled dogs, motoski, trekking with snow shoes, fishing on iced-over lakes etc etc. We are from Europe so this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us. So we need snow!!

      Where would be the places to go for these activities? where are "guaranteed" to get snow in December?
      We have been liaising with travel agencies and they have provided some suggestions... areas we have been looking at are Mont Tremblant, Sainte Agathe des Monts, Saint Donat de Montcalm, with also one offer near Fjord du Saguenay.... But is that far enough North?
      Thanks for your help!

    • Driving from Toronto to Montreal, ideas on where to stop and seeing the thousand islands?

      Province of Ontario Aug 19, 2015 at 2:21 PM

      Hi all!

      I wrote out a long post but when I submitted it said I had to verify my email and I think I lost the text.

      Either way, hello! I've been reading VT for a few weeks now and just signed up.

      I had a quick question regarding driving from Toronto to Montreal. I am wondering if anyone has experience on taking the scenic route to view the thousand islands. Do I just travel on the 401 highway all the way to Montreal, or do I have to get off somewhere?

      Also, it's a 6-7 hr drive. I'm just wondering if anyone recommends stopping somewhere along the way. Kingston looks like a good idea for a walk and a meal to break down the drive, however it seems like it might be a hassle getting into the city as I'm not too confident in my driving in Canada. (I'm from the UK).

      I would appreciate any help on this! Thanks all.

    • Questions for British tourists in Canada!

      Canada Aug 8, 2015 at 2:13 AM

      Hi,

      I would really appreciate some help on this topic!

      Myself, my Mother and Sister are traveling to Canada for 2 weeks in the coming month. However my Sister will be staying on for a year at a university that she already has a student permit, acceptance etc for.

      Visas - I was just wondering do we need any type of visas? I saw an eTA on the Canadian embassy website however that seems to come into effect in 2016. Or do we only need a passport?

      Proof of funds - My Sister has all her documents in order, but do I need them too, what about my Mother? I was told that people get interviewed, is this something we should expect? What kind of information should I have at hand?

      Car Rental - I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for car rental? I saw some comparison and aggregation sites and it's working out to around £30 or so a day. What do you do about insurance? Purchase the car rental's insurance, or do you get your own? A bit confused about this.

      How do you find driving there? I'm guessing I will definitely need a sat-nav (gps), do you pay extra for this?

      Would greatly appreciate any response!

      Thanks.

      Lumsden Mar 9, 2012 at 4:57 AM

      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.

      Cheaper accommodations - Inns

      Saskatoon Feb 10, 2010 at 9:30 PM

      v's larger hotels.

      Anyone know about Confederation Inn, or The Westgate Inn? Both along 22nd St W & Circle Drive W
      They're definately a lot cheaper than hotels like, say, Days Inn or Country Inn & Suites.
      But is it worth it? I wouldn't be spending a lot of time there & extra comforts (found in more expensive hotels) aren't a priority. But then I don't want to stay in a dive either!
      I just want a comfy bed, a clean room, hot water and a feeling of safety.
      I'll have a car too, so distance to things won't be a problem.

      So just wondering if anyone knows of & can give an opinion on these two places.

      Much appreciated,

    • Nearly five hours to waste in Regina...what to do, what to do?

      Regina Jul 25, 2007 at 1:56 PM

      Hey there;

      I'm taking a Greyhound to Toronto, and my trip sees me stopping in Regina for nearly five hours.

      So...the good question is...what to do?

      This stopover is from 4:00pm to 8:50pm...that gives me plenty of time to spend, exploring, at least, the downtown core. What I'd probably want to find is a health club (like the YMCA) so that I can have a quick work out and shower...and maybe a quick bite to eat.

      A coffee shop with wifi access would be great, or a cyber cafe, so that I can check my email, as well. Or an arcade with DDR, so that I can expend some extra energy.

      Who knows? Even a coffee date just for the heck of it? Who's to say?

      It's all good and fun, my planned trip is for the middle of August. I haven't nailed down a date yet, but that's forthcoming.

      Thanks for reading, and thank you in advance for responding.

      Yours sincerely,

      Well I am going to visit the lovely Saskatoon in July and looking forward to it from what you all say in the tip pages etc.

      You are all in the know, so tell me if you think Westjet will have a fantastic seat sale after I buy my flights from Toronto to Sask this week ( I am looking at Canada Jazz airline) - raise your hands if you think I should hold off for a while (get those crystal balls out) It is crazy to think I can get from Belfast in NI to Toronto cheaper - anyway...

      The next thing is, do any of you have brilliant insight into Car Hire in Saskatoon - I need to get a car/
      big car to fit 6 of us and luggage and head to Yorkton.
