Hi guys! How are you?
I’m still in Toronto and today I’m going on a trip down south.
About an hour and a half from here, you’ll find the great Niagara Falls
and I’m so excited to see them.
Guys, we’re here! This is Niagara Falls. Amazing, huh?
We are standing on the Canadian side right now and over there is the American side.
We have the border over on that side and it’s actually quite neat because
there’s a Canadian flag and an American flag to symbolize that it’s right in between the two countries.
I kind of like that.
Did you know that this is actually quite a popular spot for honeymooners?
It became super popular in 1953 after the release of the movie Niagara with Marilyn Monroe.
So, a lot of honeymooners come here. But it’s not just them.
It’s also families, kids, couples - anyone can come here.
It’s quite touristy, but so nice.
There are three falls here.
There’s the Bridal Veil Fall, which is the smaller one.
We have the American Fall over there.
And over there is the Canadian side and the big Horseshoe Fall.
It’s called the Horseshoe Fall because it’s kind of shaped like a horseshoe.
It actually drops down 57 metres and it’s 790 metres wide, which is huge.
I’ve seen that they have some really neat boats down there going into the falls
and I just have to do that. Let’s go do it.
One of the boats is coming in right now. It looks like there are several boats,
so you can just hop on whichever comes first.
It looks like people are wearing some kind of a poncho,
so hopefully I’ll get one of those too because I don’t’ want to get soaked.
We’ll wait in line.
It looks like it’s moving pretty fast, so it shouldn’t be too bad.
I’ve got my ticket. Now, it’s time to get the raincoat.
Hi. How are you? Thank you. Thank you so much!
Time to put this one. Alright! I don’t actually know how to do this.
Oh, here we go. How do I look? Perfect, right?
They’re emptying the boat right now, so it’s time to get on.
It’s getting real guys. This is it. I’m getting on. This is it.
I’m on the boat. It actually doesn’t feel that bad.
I thought I was going to be more nervous than I actually am, so right now it feels good.
And the view is great, so I’m not even thinking about getting scared right now.
I’m getting a little wet! It’s really misty here. Here we go. Much better.
Wow. It’s actually a lot more misty and windy than I thought it was going to be.
I’m glad I have my poncho which is keeping me somewhat dry.
This is the American side of the falls.
I don’t know if you can see, but there are a few people standing up there.
They’re getting a really good view from up there, but I think we’re getting the best view from the boat
because we get to see everything. This is so much cooler.
We’re getting really close to the falls now. It’s windy and really misty!
It’s like we’re going straight into the falls.
Wow! This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.
I had no idea we were going to go so close.
I thought we were going to stay up there, but we’re actually inside the falls.
If you look that way, you can’t see anything. It’s just mist and white foam. That’s it.
You can’t even see the sky.
I’ve never seen anything like it and I don’t think ever I will again.
I’m officially splashed!
We’re on our way back now. We were just basically inside the falls
and now we’re passing the American falls again on this side.
It’s getting a little windy. It’s getting really windy. It’s a nice breeze. It feels nice.
It’s not cold, so I don’t mind.
I’m dripping. I’m so soaked, but it was 100% worth it.
I can’t even tell you how much worth it. It was just incredible. What an experience.
What an amazing time I’ve had here in Niagara Falls.
Nature is so cool.
I actually have a question for you for a chance to win this really cool Niagara Falls, Canada book.
The question is, “What is the coolest nature experience you have ever had?”
Please comment below for a chance to win this, and in the next episode,
I’m going to show you some more of Toronto. Don’t miss that. Bye bye!
