British Columbia (B.C.), Canada is definitely my next target after enjoying the tourist spots of Ontario, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. I was planning to travel last June 2012 but for some reason, it got pushed back from my bucket list.
Later on, my cousin, Jaime (a.k.a. Chancee), informed me that he’s flying to Winnipeg for a study tour and asked me if it’s possible for us to meet up. We both agreed to see each other in Vancouver and stay in one of our relatives place whom I haven’t met.
I was so pumped! I’ll be hitting four birds with one stone! Err… it would also be cute to say, with one airfare. Well, it’s surely worth it. I’ll be able to:
*** Chat with my cousin
*** Meet & bond with my new-found relatives
*** Take a well-deserved holiday
*** “Get to know” British Columbia
Indeed, God is good. Through His “magical hands”, the wonderful trip took place and it certainly paved the way to connect some of the missing links of my life.
So, what happened during the trip? Hmmm… I’ll let you know in a bit. :p
At first, I thought the falls was a curtain-like water flowing from a huge mountain that blocks the other side of the world. I know, it was a pure insane imagination. In reality, the Niagara Falls is sandwiched between Canada and United States of America (in which I’m sure you perfectly know that. I’m just reminding myself. ).
I was surprised when I had a glimpsed of the buildings from the USA and realized that it’s a “hair-strand” away! I was resisting the urge to dive in the cold water and swim to the other side. Errr… Too bad, so sad… I don’t know how to swim (click here to read my swimming experience). 😉
Although it was drizzling, we still took photos like crazy!
Below are more photos near the Niagara Falls area:
For the fireworks display, Charles had a splendid time looking and naming the beautiful colors. I can still hear his quirky voice shouting, “Yellow! Green! Purple! Red! Orange!”. ;D
It was a long drive but it’s worth it! Thanks Bob for taking us there and for (reluctantly?) giving in to our whims !
