In our previous journey we had a chance to get familiar with some of the most famous cities of Canada, as well as with some small towns. This journey will be of a totally different concept, i.e. we are going to visit new and already familiar places but with a new perspective. This journey is about to become spectacular!
Canada is the second largest country in the world, which means it has a lot to offer and lots of beautiful places to explore. We will also try to get to know people living here and get an idea of a true Canadian spirit.
From the previous journey we learned that Canada could be totally different, not only due to a cultural mix, which the country is so proud of, but due to its geographical location and natural variety. It is truly meaningful to travel across Canada, from the east to the west, to get an idea of what the country is.
As you might know, there are several ways to get to Canada; however, air travel is the most popular and wise way if you travel from another continent. Therefore, no matter which city is your destination or entry point, you get to start your own journey with great emotions and lots of memories ahead.
I had my journey from Europe via KLM and my first stop was in the city of Toronto, the largest city of Canada and its major centre. There is a wide choice of airline companies to choose from, so you might consider the most suitable for yourself option. The flight across the ocean takes about 6-7 hours, depending on where you fly from and where you fly to. Upon arrival you might want to try the true Canadian Tim Hortons Iced Capp; it is very tasty and refreshing after a long flight.
Hereby, we are starting this new chapter of the Travel Smart series. Get ready, lay back, and enjoy the ride! This is our new journey, new story in Canada.
The mountain 110 metres high above the lake Saimaa or 184 above the sea level is located approximately 35 km away from Mikkeli.
There are several options for accommodation in Mikkeli and one of them is a Finnish chain of Sokos Hotels – Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna. Let us take a closer look at this hotel.
There are places represented in both guides – Michelin and Relais & Châteaux. One of such hotels is located in Ostuni, Italy. The beautiful 16th-century mansion of the La Sommità hotel seems to be drifting away into the white glow of the town buildings.
