Millions of people from around the world come to Canada and Ontario specifically for their holidays or vacation time. We don’t understand it, but people in other countries don’t understand why we go to their country for a holiday! Since we’re not flying anywhere anytime soon, we’re focusing on travelling closer to home by car.
This is the first of several articles that we’re going to be doing… Ever since the world-wide lockdowns we have been wondering when or IF we’ll get to travel again. You’ve probably noticed we’ve been very quiet for the past 2 year – we just didn’t know what to expect going forward, and even if we were going to continue doing TravelBloggers anymore. Now that things are a bit clearer we’ve decided to continue, but we’re staying close to home… for now. Living in Ontario for us is somewhat dull – we’d rather be off travelling around Europe or the Caribbean, but millions of people from around the world come to Canada and Ontario specifically for their holidays or vacation time. We don’t understand it, but people we talk to in other countries don’t understand why we go to their country for a holiday! Since we’re not flying anywhere anytime soon, we’re focusing on travelling closer to home by car for the time being – re-discovering home if you will.

OTTAWA, Dec. 13, 2019 /CNW/ – More than half (56%) of Canadians still don’t know they have new rights as air travellers, according to research released today by the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA). “It is clear that the government and the airlines need to do more to ensure Canadians know their rights,” says Jeff Walker, chief strategy officer, CAA National. “As we head into the holiday travel season, it’s even more important travellers are aware of the new system and how to make claims.”
From our base just outside of Speyer/Hockenheim in Germany, we did a number of day trips that are easy to get to and worth the time and effort. Our trip to Tübingen – just outside Stuttgart, was just over an hour-and-a-half south of our base. We combined the trip to Tübingen with a visit to beautiful Lichtenstein Castle which is close by – about 40 minutes by car, making it an ideal double adventure easily done in one day.
Still dreaming of “Castle Country” … aka Germany. Liechtenstein Castle – stunning! Visit our “Downloads” page for a full-size image.
