Visit and explore the tourist region:
"Hamilton, Halton and Brant "
Canada, Ontario, tourism, travel guide

A rough overview of the tourist region"Hamilton, Halton and Brant "

Especially in the southern part of Ontario you should ask for printed information. Most the time they contain coupons which may help you to save some money and information not posted in the internet.
You should not be ashamed to save money when you can. Large international companies do the same!
I hope that I can add some more information about this region to my travel guide. I always discover something new. I only hope that Elizabeth my wife recovers soon. To travel alone is not as much fun as with her company.

Whenever you approach Hamilton on the QEW you may feel the urge to pass it as fast as you can.
Don't make this mistake!
Both cities - Hamilton and Burlington - have beautiful sections and offer many things to do. We show some of them in our travel guide.

Elizabeth - my wife - did this after a severe surgery together wit a relative. She loves plants and animals and also to do gardening work. She does not only talk to animals but also to plants.
All the pictures were taken by Elizabeth and she told me how much she had enjoyed the visit.

I felt almost like in Bavaria but it was in Hamilton

Our website dedicated to Hamilton will give you a brief impression of what to expect. The surroundings are blessed with natural attractions. Forced to use a walker it is very difficult for me to explore them.
When you watch the YouTube "Eramosa Karst" video below you will agree. Don't try to explore the caves alone.

A visit to the African Lion Safari - an event for the whole family

Visit the African Lion Safari

Together with visitors from Germany we went to this safari. Naturally everything is very commercialized. But we got the feeling that all the animals are well treated and in addition they must not be afraid of poachers. To maintain such a refuge for endangered animals all year long is not cheap.
It was pleasure to see the elephants enjoying a bath after they had finished her performance to the audience.

They really enjoyed the bath

I have not been converted yet to a shopping monster. Shopping is a necessity for me but not fun.. Except in foreign countries like in Japan or in Indonesia. Elizabeth can always have fun with shopping - especially when somebody else pays for it.
In Burlington we had to visit an Apple store which was located in a mall which was superior to many others. Even I did some window shopping there.
Some of the smaller malls face now serious trouble by Walmart or by people like me who buy online and save money by doing so without any stress.

Oakville, Ontario, tourism, travel guide

We will revisit Oakville. We loved it. Elizabeth could have spent easily more hours just with window shopping.

Paris, Ontario, tourism, travel guide
Paris located at the Grand River

If you never have been in Paris, France visit ours in Ontario, Canada. Ours is very small and does not offer all the night life and the well known attractions.
Visit our website! You may love it too.
