Have you ever biked in a kilt? (via 10 Quirky Travel Tours Across Canada | Reader’s Digest)
Get out of the city to see the meteor shower at its finest
My birthday is during the Perseid meteor shower, and I remember on my 16th (I think?) birthday camping out on the deck with one of my best friends and falling asleep as we counted all the falling stars we could see.
Living in Toronto, meteor-watching hasn’t been quite as feasible, but this year I’ll be out of the city for it so I’ll try – and if you happen to be near Quebec City on August 10, you should head up to ski hill Mont Saint-Anne for a meteor-watching night. They’ll be running the lifts until 1 am and offering on-site telescopes, a barbecue service and a star-hunting contest – though honestly, if I were there, I’d pack a blanket and headlamp, take advantage of the lifts and wander off onto the hiking trails to find my own stargazing site.
