Niagra Falls

What can I say about this place other than, go see it! Really, it is fantastic!

The Falls
We went on a ride on the Maid of the Mist (the boats that go up to the Horseshoe falls) and while I was expecting some tackiness, I was pleasantly surprised, no tackiness... It was just awesome to be on a boat not far from where the falls land and feeling the mist spray up (good thing they give out complimentary raincoats, we needed them!)

I now want to go to the falls down in Argentina (can't remember the name of them), and also to Victoria falls in Africa... Simply awesome.. I was seriously surprised out how much time we spent just walking along and admiring them... (don't even have the words to describe them)

At Night
If you head to Niagra, make sure you do stay one night (you probably don't need more than that), and make sure it's a Friday or Sunday night... As they have fireworks (better than 4th July in New York) on those nights... Got some gorgeous photo's of the falls lit up at night as well... They have some great big spot lights on the Canadian side that they shine onto the two falls so that you can see them so clearly... Ah, I could really see why so many regard Niagra as the place to go for a honey-moon. :-)

This is a problem for you as you are not going to Argentina or Africa... Are you replanning the trip now?

Well, probably not on this trip, but it has now sparked in me a desire to see these sites.. :-)

So not re-planning this trip (at least not yet)

You're right, will be good to chat to Tony & Val and see if they've seen them, as well as any tips they can give for checking out Africa.. :-)

Hope you're feeling better!

Hmm ... the travel bug seems to have bitten hard. Glad you have caught it as well! Don't think it has waterfalls but Mark & I are going to Peru next year to trek to Maccu Picchu ... interested? At least you can add another continent to your 'been there, done that' travel list ;-) Take care & see you 16th Aug. A comfy bed & free computer access awaits you. A xxx

Yay! Sounds excellent on the travel to Peru side of things, will have to see how the finances are panning out of course... :-)

See you soon!
