  • Chicago - Home of the Skyscraper Four red stars and two blue strips. This is what you can find on the flag of Chicago. Those represent four big events such as the big fire in 1871 in Chicago and the Lake Michigan and Chicago river. For me Chicago is my favorite American city I have seen so far. Walking around in Chicago's downtown surrounded by massive skyscrapers where they were invented was great. Chicago is a must see in the US!
  • New stories about Canada! It's been a while now, but I am happy to present the remaining stories about Canada that were missing for a long time. Read all about the Canadian Rockies, Calgary, my approach with the French Canadian in Quebec and check out several new photo galleries
  • Greetings from Minneapolis After a 400 miles ride from Chicago to Minneapolis I finally made it. I got my SUV and drove the interstate 90/94 and drove to see my friends Colleen and Liz. We had dinner and will go to bed now directly. More later! From Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - Dominik
  • Greetings from Chicago! Hi there! I arrived in Chicago today. Pretty awesome. My couchsurfing host is a cool guy! Just returned back "home" from dinner, we had typical Chicago pizza, which is called "deep dish". I am pretty jet lagged. I know back home it's quarter to four already, here it's just quarter to nine. Anyways I try to stay awake to get used to the seven hours time change. Tomorrow I will go to see the downtown! So far, from the US, Chicago - Dominik
  • Canadian Friendship On this trip I made so many new friends and I would say thank you to all of them. Like thank you for hosting me, thanks for showing arround, thanks for offering a ride and last but not least thank you for your good company! I supposed to travel alone, but in fact, I never was. So this blog entry is a kind of dedication for all of those new friends I now have. Unfortunately I don't have pictures of all of my new friends - Even within 2.500 pictures :- (
  • Quebec City One of the oldest cities in North America is Quebec city. It was the last but definitely not the least city on my trip through Canada. The city is the only city in North America with an intact old town and stronghold. I've couchsurfed My-Linn and celebrated the 400th years anniversary.
  • Trois Rivieres I had a brief stop over in the city of Trois Rivieres. The reason why I went there was to visit one of my former Couchsurfing guest that I've hosted in Vienna: Katlyn from Quebec. My plan was to visit her sister later in Quebec city and luckily Trois Rivieres was on the way.
  • Ottawa Ottawa, the capital city of Canada. The city is shared by the provinces of Quebec and Ontario and is English and French speaking. I managed to get there by the first of July to celebrate Canada day together with my CouchSurfing host Deanna and her friends.
  • Calgary Calgary is the capital city of Canadian province Alberta. I spent there only a couple of hours, so I had only a brief visit in this city. Even though I had the possibility to meet a local. Annie drove by with her bicycle when I asked for some directions. She showed me around in the city center and invited me for dinner.
  • Rocky Mountains & National Parks I booked a tour starting from Vancouver. To goal was to see most of the great national parks of Canada such as Banff or Jasper national park. It was definitely a great tour. The trip lasted a couple of days. It was pure nature as its best. We had to wash in cold rivers and sleep outside. No electricity, no mobile phones - simply true nature!
  • Canada: A Mari Usque Ad Mare From the middle of June until the 7th of July I spent a cool time in one of the biggest countries on earth: Canada. A country full of undisturbed nature, nice and helpful people and big cities. With only 33 million people living there for a country of the size of almost 10.000.000 km2, you can easily explore wildlife. I met so many cool people, discovered so many new things, I experienced adventures - Overall: It was awesome!
