The tour in Cornell University campus was interesting. Cornell is one of the Ivy League universities, and was founded way back in 1865. The campus stretches on 2,300 acres, and there is also a nearby lake, natural waterfalls and beautiful gardens.
We continued along route 112 to Sabbaday Falls, near Kancamagus Highway in Waterville. The waterfalls are almost 15 meter high, and there’s a short walk to get to them. Along the way there are benches where you can sit and enjoy the views, and an observation deck from which you can take some amazing pictures.
Jordaan is one of the most famous districts of Amsterdam, maybe the whole Netherlands. It was once a poor neighborhood, but today it’s the IT place for students, artists and young go-getters...There’s a pleasant atmosphere to the neighborhood, with a mixture of styles and activities, lots of art galleries, special shops, restaurants and small cafés.
The Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré is a very impressive, even in European terms... We wondered around for half an hour, admiring the architecture, the stained glass windows and the many sculptures and artworks.
You really must take the cruise to Bonaventure Island, no question about it. From the boat you can see whales, earless seals and the famous northern Gannets (from the Sulidae family). A visit to the Sulidae reservation in the island is a fun (and a little smelly and loud) experience no matter what your age is.
Miguasha National Park (Parc national de Miguasha) is located area near Carleton-sur-Mer on the Gaspé Peninsula. It’s an interesting, surprising and highly recommended park to visit. We spent an hour an half there, and visited the museum, which features exhibits about the fossils and paleontology of the park. The collection includes over 9,000 specimens of fossil fish and plants, displaying a crucial time during the evolution of life on Earth.
