Places Of Interest

One thing we share in common is that we love to go discover new places. Of course there's always a question of $$. In almost anything one does, there will be involvement of $$. Consider that is part of investment. Even if there's no $$ involve, then there is time. But time is what we have to offer so, I'm putting up this article to sort of track down the places we want to go before we return home from our 4-6 years life here in Canada.

I'm separating it into 4 main sections - International, National, Regional & Provincial, and Local.
What's the difference between these. Well, international is a given. But for national, are places of interest that goes beyond normal driving (bus or car) distances. Any attempt by driving would result in using up 1 day or more on the road. Our recent Toronto & Niagara trip can be classified as National. Regional & Provincial are places where we can travel to using buses or renting a car. Probably be a weekend or a day trip. Finally local trips are somewhere a fair bit closer. Its places we could walk to or take the local transit buses (albeit changes a bus or 2). PPP (Point Pleasant Park) such a place.

We love parks. In fact, our favourite past time is do some hiking along some natural trails. Luckily we're not too far away from one - PPP. But there's more than one park in Canada. Canada is full of parks and most of them are very natural and offer lots of picturesque scenery. Here's the list of places we'd like to go.
