Our Gay Couple Review Theme Park Linnanmäki Helsinki Finland – There is an Amusement Park in Finland? Yes, there is!

Finding Dinosaurs at Royal Tyrrell Museum Palaeontology Drumheller Alberta Canada – Visiting a Dinosaur museum was not the first thing that came to our mind when thinking of traveling the Canadian Rocky Mountains in Alberta. But it was a great unexpected adventure doing a one-day road trip to the small town Drumheller, about 1,5 hours North-East of Calgary. The whole area of Red Deer River Valley is dedicated to the discoveries of a huge amount of dinosaurs skeletons and fossils throughout the so-called Dinosaur Valley. Starting with our explorations of the28 km long valley of Dinosaurs, we visited the exhibits at Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology.
CANADA: Thinking about Calgary, a public art scene would not be necessarily the first thing that comes to your mind, especially not in Downtown Calgary with all its huge skyscrapers and financial offices. We have been disabused. A variety of sculptures, gigantic graffitis, outdoor paintings and sunny parks with public art are scattered all around the heart of the Canadian city in the province of Alberta. Additional to the outdoor art installations, a multiplicity of public art in most of the foyers and backyards of the modern buildings showcase art pieces from all over the world. During our stay in Calgary right before our road trip through the Canadian Rocky Mountains of Alberta, we became gay city explorers.
