Canada Trip Day 17: From Quebec City to Montreal

29 June 2010 - We took a ViaRail train from Quebec City to Montreal, which cost us about CAN$50 for a one way ticket. The train ride took about three hours. Sakana takes pictures of pretty much everything, even of the toilets. She even made a video of the swirling motion of the water of the toilet flush, which she found fascinating. 0_o

What I love about train rides is the passing countryside which one misses when traveling by air. We passed some nice rivers, farm and country houses. In Canada, I particularly like watching those big trailer trucks going on the highway. They are so terrifyingly huge, they literally look unstoppable. 

Some photos are taken by Sakana.
