Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would not go to Nanaimo in Vancouver Island and China Town in Vancouver.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    We could not rent a car on Vancouver Island. It was a bit annoying because public transport on the island is not well-developed.

  • How was the food?

    I really enjoyed the bears in Port Moody (next to Vancouver) and in Distillery district in Toronto. The fish and chips in Victoria was really nice too.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    I would recommend my friend to rent a car on Vancouver island and in Banff. I also recommend using poparide if you do not have a driving licence.

  • Any surprises?

    China Town was full of junkies and therefore not nice to visit. There is real drug problem.

  • Booking details?

    Hostels and Airbnb are the cheapest way to find a place to sleep. You also have couchsurfing which is free but might be a bit dangerous if you are a girl traveling alone.
