Niagara Falls












We took a quick detour during our weekend in Ontario to visit Niagara Falls - my first time ever! We happened to be there on the same day that this crazy guy tight-rope walked across the falls. So the place was flooded with media, and we got an up-close view of the wire and the gathering crowds. Clearly, the Maid of the Mist is aptly named. We also got soaked to the bone.

Would you believe I've been to 13 countries but I've never been to the US? I didn't take my passport with me to Ontario, so although America was tantalizingly close, I wasn't able to tick it off my list this time. Alas!

What's a country someone might suspect you've visited, but you haven't? And have you ever seen one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World? Tell me.

  1. I haven't visited Niagara Falls yet although Joe went a couple of years ago. (My parents honeymooned there in 1970.)

    As for the wonders, I've only seen the Northern Lights (many, many times) and will see them many more times this year in Norway. We had hoped to go to Victoria Falls before leaving Africa but just couldn't fit it in!
