"As the weather was uncertain that day, we decided to explore the Banff area. After roaming a few moments, we discovered this spot with people already waiting for the train! We decided to stay, and it ended being the best decision of the day. Even if it lasted a few minutes, the first seconds were very special: you hear the train coming from a distance and then, you finally see it in all it’s beauty! Ahhh it made my child’s heart so happy!” If you’re visiting the Banff and Lake Louise area, don’t miss a stop by Morant’s curve, on the western end of the Bow Valley Parkway. Find out when the next train is coming by to be treated to this experience! #ExploreCanada 📷: @eyes.abroad 📍: @banff_lakelouise, @travelalberta . « La météo étant incertaine ce jour-là, nous avons décidé d’explorer les environs de Banff. Après une brève errance, nous sommes tombés sur ce belvédère où plusieurs personnes attendaient déjà le passage du train. Choisir de patienter avec eux fut la meilleure décision de la journée! Le passage du train a duré quelques minutes, mais les premières secondes étaient particulièrement magiques : on entend le train arriver de loin… et il se dévoile enfin dans toute sa splendeur! Ça a réveillé mon cœur d’enfant! » Si vous visitez la région de Banff et de Lake Louise, ne manquez pas la « courbe de Morant », à l’extrémité ouest de la promenade de la Vallée-de-la-Bow. Pour vivre cette expérience unique, informez-vous des horaires des trains! #ExploreCanada 📷 @eyes.abroad 📍 @banff_lakelouise, @travelalberta . #MyBanff #ExploreAlberta

Since its inauguration in November 2017, this Leonard Cohen mural, a tribute to the late singer, songwriter and poet, has been an icon of Montreal. This massive artwork, by muralists @mac_arte and @genependon, is located at 1420 Crescent Street, in the heart of downtown. Some of the best vantage points to see it include: the Mount Royal Observatory as well as the Glass Court of the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts (@mbamtl). As our own tribute to Cohen, we’d like to leave you with these famous words of his and invite you to share them with a friend : “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” #ExploreCanada 📷 : @night.shotz 📍: @montreal, @tourismequebec .

L’observatoire du Mont-Royal et la verrière du Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal (@mbamtl) sont d’excellents endroits d’où la contempler. Nous rendons hommage à notre tour à ce grand artiste en vous invitant à partager avec un ami cette célèbre citation de Leonard Cohen : « There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in » (Il y a une faille en toute chose, c’est ainsi qu’entre la lumière). #ExploreCanada 📷 @night.shotz 📍 @montreal, @tourismequebec #MTLmoments #QuebecOriginal
