Don’t go chasing waterfalls. Please stick to the rivers and lakes that you’re used to – TLC
Only I do go chasing waterfalls… or rather they go chasing me.
And probably you too… after all they are a staple of your holiday day tours.
But like rivers and lakes usually once you’ve seen one then you’ve seen them all.
The Big Three
While the third in Venezuela I’m inching closer to having acquainted myself with the Venezuelan Spanish ladies of Tobago.
Not all waterfalls have to have come down from the highest heavens.
Nor do they have to be at a neck-craning height to be blessed by the gods.
As I discovered in Kythera in Greek Attica.
Whether you’re gazing on nature’s wonders among the world’s great mountain ranges such as the Pyrenees
Or with the sun on your back in the Caribbean waterfalls are one of the Gods’ gifts.
Unless, of course, it’s Powerscourt’s waterfalls in my old back yard of Co. Wicklow in Ireland which you have to pay for.
Powerscourt, its gardens and splendid hotel and grounds and best-value restaurant is one of the country’s jewels.
Spray that again
All of which waterfall waffling brings me to the subject in hand, an invitation from one of the best Travel providers in the business.
American Holidays are flagging up their Canadian market and as well as Niagara Falls, the less well-known Montmorency Waterfalls.
The Montmorency Falls in Quebec are actually 30m higher than its much-vaunted Ontario neighbour.
You can decide for yourself which you prefer on your nine-day tour of Canada’s great Eastern Cities.
You’ll fly from Dublin to Toronto and return from Montréal from €1539pp.
