The Great Lakes of North America form parts of the border between Canada and the United States. The Saint Lawrence River is the main waterway leading to and from the lakes from the Atlantic Ocean. I went to visit two of the three largest cities on the Canadian side of the border, Montreal and Quebec. The third is Toronto, which I skipped and went to Ottawa instead. I travelled overland by train and bus between these three major cities in the provinces of Quebec and Ontario. You can read my story in three articles.
