Impressions of Ontario, Tourism, Travel Guide
Go to page
Ontario is much larger than Germany where I am from - about 3 times the size! Only the water area covers almost 50% of the area of Germany.
For that reason it is not a surprise that we have not seen all of Ontario. This is a problem of money and time and we are getting older too.
However, we have some plans!
In the "Near North" we always had a good time.
In the "Near North"
We can reach this area in a day trip. An extended long weekend gave us enough time to go there and enjoy the clean air and the beautiful nature.
Please us the installed links to learn what we have seen and experienced.
What a surprise - a German restaurant - naturally I ordered Schnitzel
Long vacations will end fast. Our short trips even faster.
We had to go back. We could not ask our friends to take too long care of our cats, Elizabeth had to go back to work and her mom needed her also.
When we approached Toronto on our way back we realized very fast how bad the air was compared to the "Near North".
Luckily, you get used to it and do not smell it any longer after a certain time.
Please do not use this as an excuse not to spend some time in Toronto and its surrounding area. There is so much to see and to do. It is really a great city.
The official web sites show everything - ours only a few attractions which our guests liked. We have to add more things to ours.

The underground shopping center is certainly something new for many visitors. When I came to Canada it was something which I never had seen in this size.
The impressing architecture added a special flavor.
Especially during winter when an ice cold wind was blowing outside it was a good refuge. Outside I could see hardly anybody, but the underground was crowded.
We have to go back to make more actual pictures.
The company Eaton does not exist any longer. It was a department store which offered higher priced quality products. However, the "Eaton Centre" is still a world wide known landmark of Toronto. You can find today in many cities similar buildings - even in Europe.
You have access to the "underground" from her - the "Eaton Centre"
The "CN-Tower" is another attraction which you should preferable visit when the weather is good. The following pictures were taken in 2009.
If you are not afraid walk on the glass floor. So far it never broke and nobody dropped down. In an airplane you are much higher above ground!

We had visited the "African Lion Safari Park" a few time with our guests. It is not cheap, but we got always the impression that all the animals are treated very well there and can free during summer.
You will find this park between Hamilton, Cambridge und Kitchener. I will prepare an English variant of our German site
You can drive through the park in you own car or join a bus tour through it. Please obey all the posted safety warnings.
You never know hen a lion or a tiger suddenly gets appetite for fresh meat!
These elephants enjoy their bath after hard work in the African Lion Safari Park
As you can see the animals are used to visitors
The monkeys are even waiting for them
They enjoy it when you come in your own or a rental car. They jump on it to get a free ride and try to collect windshield wipers, mirrors and old fashioned antennas.
This is the reason why many people prefer to use the bus. You must pay extra for that but a tour guide provides many helpful information about all the animals.
