Ria's Travels around USA!!!
WOW WOW WOW I didn't think I'd ever be able to make it up here!!! But here I am!!!! and all the hassle was well worth it... This place...is just amazing!!! If your lost...am at Niagara Falls (CANADA) :-) Its so strange because the bus driver drops you off in the middle of a town and says 'walk 2 blocks that way and your there' and mad as it sounds behind all these shops and stuff is the falls. Its so strange how you can walk into two different worlds in 2mins... You can see the mist coming from the falls from a distance away, as soon as I seen it I was so excited :-) but actually seeing it there was just amazing!!!! I just cant describe it... I was walking towards this bridge to see if I could get a better view of it all, and I ended up walking over to Canada. HaHaHa. CANADA!!!! Just like that... how strange is that????? It was just surreal, one minute in USA the next over in Canada. If all of Canada is like this place its defiantly a place I'd love to visit in the future its just so pretty... And what I'd heard about the falls....and the Canadian side being more impressive, IT IS...its great, you can see all of it in its glory :-) Ii went on the 'maid of the mist' boat ride and it was great, they take you right up to the bottom of the falls and the boats drifting all over the place, tipping from side to side because of the waves and you get absolutely soaking because your so close to where the water comes crashing down, if am honest it was scary at times I thought the boat was gonna flip over...but well worth it, just amazing to be there right in front of it :-) Talking of close up, I went behind the falls in these tunnel things that take u right up next to the falls and another two tunnels that take you behind the falls and all you can see is the water coming down in front of you, its just out of this world, absolutely beautiful. Its weird to think your underneath and behind the falls....GREAT STUFF :-) Then to top it off I went up on the sky tower, which is an observation deck WAY up above Niagara...I can't remember how high...but HIGH and you can just see everything. The pictures from up here have come out really nice... you could even see the sky line of Toronto from up there...just amazing!!!! Thankfully it was an absolute gorgeous day so I could see everything just fine, but best of it is I could have lunch in the park...I took a blanket so I just kicked back and chilled out with the sound of the falls in the background...it was just surreal!!! so peaceful.... Defiantly a romantic place though...so missed Karl being there... All the couples that we're kissing and stuff I just wanted to push them over the edge because I was so jealous. HAHAHAHA. Am only kidding :-) It's the number 1 place people go for their honeymoons and I can defiantly see why :-) LUSH!!! It took me about 7 hours to get here from New York and it was worth every minute of leg cramp and bum numb HaHa I'll miss all this serenity I'll miss USA :-( anyway Sex and the City tour tomorrow and am defiantly having a cosmopolitan 2 celebrate... HeHe love ya all MWAH xxxxxxxxxxxx
