Niagara Falls

I live in Canada. I am a Canadian citizen, or so it says so on my passport. I identify more as a citizen of the world, but that’s a whole other discussion. Earlier this month, I made my first trip to Niagara Falls. Yep, it was my first time and I was excited to go!

Before this month, I never made the effort to visit Niagara Falls. When I was a kid, the opportunity wasn’t there. The whole point of living a minimal life, for me, is to experience life as much as possible. It’s not about buying or owning things, it’s about experiencing life, living minimally, connecting with people and enjoying (almost) every minute of it. So, I went to Niagara Falls and I did enjoy every minute of it.

If you’re not sure, Niagara Falls is located on the border of southern Canada and the northern part of the United States. It’s made up of three waterfalls. The horseshoe falls (pictured above) is almost completely on the Canadian side. The combined falls form the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world (thanks, Wikipedia!). Horseshoe Falls is by far the most powerful and yesterday I took the boat into see the falls. I’m not really a ‘get wet on purpose’ type of person but it was absolutely incredible. I took some time to stand still and just stare in awe as the falls crashed around us. It was definitely a sight to be seen.
