Canada - Quebec - 2012


Quebec City

City in Québec, Canada.
Québec City sits on the Saint Lawrence River in predominantly French-speaking Québec province. Dating to 1608, it retains its fortified colonial core, Vieux-Québec and Place Royale, with narrow streets, stone buildings and a European feel. This area is site of the famous, towering Château Frontenac Hotel and imposing Citadelle of Québec. The Petit Champlain district’s cobblestone streets are lined with bistros and boutiques.










Canada - Montreal - 2012

Viaje a Canada 2012- Montreal


Montreal, City in Québec, Canada
Montréal is the largest city in Québec. Predominantly French-speaking, it’s set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River and named after Mt. Royal, the triple-peaked hill at its heart. Its 19 boroughs, many of which were once independent cities, include neighbourhoods from cobblestoned, French colonial Vieux-Montréal – with imposing Notre-Dame Basilica at its center – to industrial Sud-Ouest and artist-friendly Plateau.


The Thousand Islands
Constitute an archipelago of 1,864 islands that straddles the Canada-U.S. border in the Saint Lawrence River as it emerges from the northeast corner of Lake Ontario. They stretch for about 50 miles (80 km) downstream from Kingston, Ontario. The Canadian islands are in the province of Ontario, the U.S. islands in the state of New York. 
The 1,864 islands range in size from over 40 square miles (100 km2) to smaller islands occupied by a single residence, or uninhabited outcroppings of rocks that are only home to migratory waterfowl. To count as one of the Thousand Islands, emergent land within the river channel must have at least one square foot (0.093 m2) of land above water level year-round, and support at least two living trees.[

Canada - Niagara Falls - 2012



Mayo 15: Llegada a Bufalo, NY. Paseo en barco por las cataratas del Niagara en el lado americano. Una experiencia increible. Paseo en el barco: $ 15.00 por persona. En la noche pasamos al lado canadiense donde observamos las cataratas con luces de colores. Mucho frio en las calles de la ciudad estilo Las Vegas.
