Niagara Falls - Maid of the Mist

Last weekend my buddy Troy and his Wife, who where on their honeymoon from Thailand stopped by Guelph and we decided to explore the region. So we headed up to Niagara Falls. This was the first time for Troy's wife and me at Niagara Fall, and while Tory had been before he was only a kid so it was a great experience for all.

We went on the Maid of the Mist, which is the boat that takes you into the water within a few feet of the falls, it was really wet and amazing. Really need a waterproof camera to properly recorded it but we did get some good photos and even better memories.

We also went to a haunted house, wasn't much fun but the Tunnel at Ripley's Believe it or Not was a lot of fun. If you've never been in one of these tunnels basically, you are in a dark room in which the walls rotate around you. Because your brain wants to interpret the walls as stationary, you feel like you are rotating the other way, and you are off balance when you walk. Its so weird as really no matter how to try to fight it your brain overpowers your logic and reality and you end up walking funny and often hit the side of the rails.

This Canada Day I am in Halifax, came up for some work and stayed for the holiday, will write about it once I am back to Guelph, but so far so good.
