Brockville – between 1000 islands and the big city [Across Canada – part 14: 08.-15.05.2018]

Brockville, Ontario, isn't exactly a town you have on your must list (yet) when traveling across Canada.

Ottawa – A night in jail [Across Canada – part 13: 07.-09.05.2018]

It feels like a goodbye to Canada leaving Halifax and Nova Scotia on the train.

First things first. In Québec City I made the decision to come back to Germany a bit earlier than planned - in the end of May. One month to go.

I realized my increasing inner unrest to figure out a couple of things … Continue reading Quebéc City – Haute, Basse et Nouvelle Ville [Across Canada – part 11: 23.-27.04.2018]

Montréal – French for beginners [Across Canada – part 10: 19.-23.04.2018]

It’s weird to exit the bus and suddenly everything is in French. Even getting on the metro felt like I've been thrown somewhere into Paris and not like Canada anymore.

The vibe is relaxed, chilled and on a sunny day … Continue reading Montréal – French for beginners [Across Canada – part 10: 19.-23.04.2018]

Toronto – 10 lines for stopover 1 of 3 [Across Canada – part 9: 17.-19.04.]

After being 2 1/2 days on the train Toronto was merely a stop to stretch my legs, breathe some air and get something for my brain before going to explore Montreal and Quebec.
