I have a friend in Nain and he was interested in checking out these abandoned sites and the hopedale DEW site. I have looked all over but am not able to find directions to any of these places. Would you be able to tell me where these locations are or maybe someone he could ask in Nain?
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!

Thank You Karen in Uk
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!
Hey, I'm planning on travelling to Canada in Feb 2014. Excited and nervous at the same time, first time travelling and doing it solo. Initially I plan to take in Vancouver and then see where the long winding road takes me. Should there be another traveller planning a similar route, do drop me a note! My intention is to apply for a job within a ski resort - any tips, advice and/or guidance on accommodation, job hunting et al would be greatly appreciated.
We are a family of adults, two teen boys and two little ones and planning on visiting Canada from Australia for a white christmas. We have some ideas about what we'd like to do, and we would like to stay in a cabin that has kitchen and the creature comforts to amuse the kids inside, somewhere that really embraces Christmas with lot's of decorations etc. we don't mind staying out of town so long as there is transport too and from town available. Some of the activities we thought we would like to do is hire snow mobiles, snow boarding, toboggans and ice skating. The family say they would also like to also see some wild life, it would be fun to see deer wandering around. Can anyone suggest other activities or things to see to suit young and old, and where in Canada would you suggest we go? Appreciate any help, thank you.
I'm thinking about a vacation in late 2014 however I can only manage 2 weeks off work.
Is there a country you can recommend that would be fair to visit with such a short period of time?
I'm coming from Canada, so southeast Asia & Australia probably don't make the most sense due to the high travel time.
Also, as a side note, I am not looking for a destination vacation. It definitely has to be a backpack trip.
Thanks for your opinions!
I am going to Whistler for two months winter! Will arrive there around 20th January and leave somewhere in the end of March.
During this time I will need some cheap accommodation! As I dont got driving license and I am going to Whistler only for the skiing, I am requiring the accommodation to be either ski in-, ski- out, or walkable distance to lift or bus station.
So the only thing I care about is really the position, I dont care if its luxury or got a hot-tub or whatever. A kitchen would be nice tho. With the position and kitchen solved, I am looking for the absolute cheapest.
What would you recommend?
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 a month to kill around the BC area in January and was thinking of spending some time snow boarding in Whistler. I don't have a working visa but was hopeful on getting an under the desk job or working in a hostel for the cost of staying there or something similar. Is there anywhere where this is possible?
I am due to move over to Toronto in the New Year based on getting the Working Holiday Visa i applied for.
I am a 23 year old male who works in the Oil and Gas industry working a shift pattern of 1 month working and 1 month home. I have a few questions on Toronto.
1. Where is the best nightlife in Toronto?
2. Is there many soccer leagues/teams in downtown Toronto?
3. How is the weather just after the New Year in Toronto?
4. Also looking at Downtown rental property, I am aware it is very expensive but is there a better part of downtown than others to live or is the whole place decent?
Any help on these would be much appreciated.
An Aussie friend and I are considering driving, mid-September 2012, from Skagway to Whitehorse (yes, we are aware that he has to rent the car as Canadian law won't allow a car rented in the US by a Canadian into Canada! Makes no sense that an Aussie can rent the car!) Is this a safe drive at that time of year? (ie, it IS too early for snow, right???) I'm assuming we have to be wary of moose and other wildlife on the roads? Are the Northern Lights visible in September? What about returning via Haines Junction, and the Haines Highway? I know we'd have to get the ferry from Haines to Skagway, but is that a viable idea?
Any hotels that we should avoid? Since we have a car, it does mean we don't have to stick to downtown hotels or ones by the airport - any highly recommended places for just one night? Any restaurants that really are must go to's? We're not looking for high-end - just good food, and hopefully locally sourced.
Thank you for your assistance. VTers are the best!
I am coming to Whitehorse in December as part of my round the world trip
I already found a hostel where to stay, but I do have some other questions...
1) What is the weather like in December? much snow? any -40 days?
2) Are the northern lights visible regularly in winter? does Whitehorse gets ice fog like Yellowknife?
3) What's the downtown area like?
4) Any organized tours/activities I can do while I am there?
5) Any dangerous animals roaming around the city?
I would like to know what the price per liter of diesel is in Whitehorse, YT, Canada and the surrounding area is at the present time and what may be expected this summer (if known). We are planning another trip to Alaska and northern Canada with a diesel truck and a 5th wheel trailer. Thank you!!!
