RUSSIAN LANGUAGE WILL FOLLOW // На русском читайте ниже🙂

chicago-downtown

Chicago — Stunning. Iconic. Wondrous. It will capture your heart. You will never get tired of the skyscrapers downtown. My eyes still widen as I soak in icons like the Tribune Tower and Wrigley Building. These aren’t just functional boxes holding offices and people. There is beauty all around. This city is bustling and yet it retains a feeling of airiness as it gleams in the sun. Read more…

Gaspésie Journey – Day 2

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

A hiking hotspot, Parc national de la Gaspésie gives visitors access to an extraordinary mountain environment. The Chic-Chocs and McGerrigle Mountains cross the park. Among them, Mont Jacques Cartier is the second highest peak in Québec. The altitude of these mountains deeply influences the climate that moulds the landscape and creates a diversity of species unique to Québec and even the world. Arctic-alpine plants and tundra landscapes form a habitat for a herd of woodland caribou, the last representatives of this species south of the St. Lawrence. Read more…

Gaspésie Journey – Day 1

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

I tell you this story about the most beautiful place I have ever seen in my life, but come to prepare for a long drive and hard hiking. It is about a breathtaking place, one that is full of curious equivocations; somewhere half serene, half rugged, on the lip of a body of water that is half river, half sea. I think everyone should know about it for it holds so much beauty, so much Canadian history. Recognized by National Geographic Traveler as one of Canada’s 50 Places of a Lifetime, Gaspésie gives you the opportunity to discover four national parks; famous Percé Rock; the world’s most accessible northern gannet colony; a UNESCO World Heritage Site; moose; summits over 1000 metres; lighthouses; Chaleur Bay, one of the most beautiful bays in the world; remarkable historic sites and much more.

Travelling with kids

2H3A4580

Deciding where to go with your kids in Canada can be a daunting decision. Mountains, prairies, beaches, ice fields and easy-going cities are strewn across six time zones. Yet between sure-bet wildlife sightings, meeting real-life cowboys, hands-on learning about pirate history, roaming the plains for dinosaur fossils and ice-skating on mountain lakes, it’s impossible to make a bad choice. Add the fact that Canada caters to kids better than nearly any other country in the world and you may find yourself as many people do – bringing the kids back year after year. Read more…

Motivation is not an unlimited wellspring but a battery that has to be kept fully charged. While the idea of travel is always inspiring, sometimes life gets in the way and then suddenly, your eyes are no longer on the prize. Motivated people can achieve anything they set their mind to. But how does one stay motivated, especially to travel, when you are busy working and living life while your family or friends disparage your ideas, you’re overwhelmed planning your trip, or maybe you’re just burnt out from being on the road? It’s important to find ways to stay motivated. 🙂 Read more…

QUÉBEC CITY DAY 2

IMG_6772

The charm does not end at the Old Québec City and today, I want to share with you an amazing trip to Parc de la Chute-Montmorency which is a few minutes away from it. Located between the river and the cliffs, it’s one of the province’s most spectacular sites. With its 83 meters high (30 meters higher than Niagara Falls), Montmorency Falls dominates the landscape. It can be discovered on foot, by cable car, or from the gourmet restaurant. For the more active, a 300-meters double zipline, and the via ferrata, a hiking trail on a cliff, promises some adrenaline and breathtaking views. Accessible year-round, the site works its magic day and night. The entire cove of the park has been illuminated after dark. Let’s discover this impressive and enchanting spot together! Read more…
