Trip to Canada

In Mid-July, we planned for a one-way road trip to Vancouver. Driving 2200+ miles, passing through Wyoming's Yellow Stone National Park, Montana and Idaho's beautiful mountains, and Washington's green areas, we reached Seattle. After being one day in almost untouched Vashon Island in southwest of Seattle and experiencing Ferry-riding on our vehicle, we then drove north to Canada.

Driving through the ground US-Canada border, and sudden jump of speed limit from 70 to 100 (of course from m/h to km/h), we were trying to figure out our way towards Vancouver Downtown, where we had reserved a hotel. Vancouver is one of the most beautiful city in North America. Great weather, nice beaches, green mountain, beautiful historic buildings near modern part of the city makes it an amazing experience that you will never forget.

After being one week there, we flew to Ottawa. While in Ottawa, with a group of six, we drove all the way to Thousand Islands on the border of Canada and US, and then to Niagara Falls. It was so great feeling wet near the The Falls. We then went to Toronto Island, Kingston, beautiful French-speaking Quebec City and crazy drivers' city of Montreal. Totally around 5000 km driving in 24 days of the trip.

A nice vacation after a while!!
