Monday April 7, 2014
From the mailbox:

    Hope you can help us! We're getting married next March and are planning to visit NYC and Canada on our honeymoon. As you know, there are many places in Canada, but we'll have only one week there. We want to choose places close to the U.S., like Niagara Falls, Montreal, Toronto, Quebec, and Ottawa. Could you help us to plan a good honeymoon schedule in Canada? How many days should we spend in each city? Do you think one week is enough to visit all those cities on a honeymoon?
