Day to Day: Best Friend Trip to Niagara Falls

I have been trying to take my best friend, Ariana, on a trip to Niagara Falls, ON, Canada for the longest time and I finally got to take her for her birthday this year. I love traveling with her because she is so adventurous and really enjoys trying new things. She’s always trying to push me out of my comfort zone and it’s nice to have a friendship with someone who challenges you! It can also be very terrifying at times but I always manage to survive, haha! Here are some highlights of the trip.

You can’t go to Niagara Falls and not get the obligatory falls and rainbow picture. Here you go, mate!

Never again will I get in something that goes this high and feels like I’m going to fall to my death. This was certainly something she pushed me to do and I was not happy, LOL. I wish I had the video she took of me practically soiling my pants. I didn’t like it. 

We managed to visit a day or two before Canada’s Thanksgiving day so we tried the thanksgiving Poutine and it was a delicious sloppy mess of potato and gravy goodness. No regrets, people. 

We didn’t hold back on the sweets either. We tried a cute little Gelato place and I had heaven in a cup in the form if amaretto and pistachio gelato. Every time we meet up some place, it is a tradition that we find french macaroons and try a bunch of wacky flavors. I don’t know if we just didn’t pick the right flavors or if these were just terribly executed but they were probably the worse we have ever had. They were cute though! 

We took a trip to the botanical gardens so that we could get a glimpse of Niagara Falls in the Fall. It was a gloomy day but everything was still so beautiful. Isn’t this the saddest rose you’ve ever seen?

I had to save my favorite experience for last. I wasn’t leaving until I returned to Queen Charlotte’s Tearoom. This place is magical and whimsical and makes my heart swoon. I didn’t get a very ladylike meal because there was no chance I was picking a chicken salad sandwich over bangers and mash. I was the adventurous one this time and pushed for us to try the Scottish caramel toffee tea and it was so gosh darn good.  

All and all I think it was a much needed trip between us friends. She and I have been best friends for 14 years and we don’t get to see one another much because of distance. I can’t wait to see what adventures we go on next together!

  1. Joy, this trip sounds amazing! I’m so glad you were able to finally go to Niagara Falls with your bestie!

    The waterfall looks beautiful, and yay for capturing the rainbow! I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy the Sky Wheel much, though. Eek!

    But those food! Poutine! Would love to try the real thing one day! And all those sweets *________*. And that tearoom sounds amazing. I need to go to more of those!

  2. That sounds like an awesome trip with your friend! I haven’t been to Niagara Falls in so long. I kind of want to go back to take better photos of it.

    That Poutine and gelato look soooo good. That’s too bad about the macarons though. I love macarons, but I’ve definitely run into places that don’t do them well! The tea set at Queen Charlotte’s Tearoom look so pretty. That looks like a great place to go.

    I’m glad you had a great trip!

  3. That is so lovely that you have such a friendship with your best friend. It’s great that you can have adventures and that personality leads to new different situations (thankfully you do survive haha!)

    Are. That Sky Wheel looks so scary. I think I would be terrified as well. >.<

    Mmmmmm. That Gelato and Macarons look so good. I love Macarons in photos, they always look so perfect. πŸ˜€

    I am glad that you enjoyed the tea room. That would be a really interesting and fun experience. πŸ˜€

    It’s great that you had that trip and hopefully you can go on another soon. πŸ˜€

  4. Niagra Falls! One of the world wonders, and your friendship sounds so amazing, you both were able to spend time together in a different place to celebrate her birthday! The photos of the sweets have gotten to me, I am now wanting some treats this early lol. I’m afraid of heights but the ferris wheel is definitely something that you have to try once in your lifetime. Glad you took a risk and went on it! The best is seeing a rainbow over the falls… reminds you of the beauty of mother nature.
