Taking a Break in #Canada. 6

Niagara Falls.

I have been to Niagara Falls more times than I can remember. First with my aunt and uncle when we came to Canada. Then with my relatives from Hungary, then with friends, relatives, family trips, relatives, visitors, and so on.

The water keeps falling and falling and the sight of Niagara Falls is amazing, mesmerizing, and beautiful. It is not the tallest, the biggest, or the best waterfall in the world. Yet it is ours and it makes for a cool separator between Canada and the United States. A place where you can walk into no man’s land… The wait is that term still valid. Is it no one’s land or no person’s land? Not sure what to call it anymore. You get the idea, of a place that does not belong to anyone. It is a hard concept to grasp and I wonder if I build a little house there, who will come after me?

Made Great Content.

As my video continues to rack up views past 30 thousand on TikTok, I assume that Niagara Falls has lots of appeal to those around the world. So many people wish to see it in person. Despite our day being around 6-8 degrees Celsius, the Falls were quite busy.

Clifton Hill was the same as always. Lots of lights, lots of restaurants, and of course a haunted house opposite an ice cream place and Beaver Tails. The latter of which I had to eat. I was tempted very much by the Funnel Cakes but decided against it because it was close to lunch.

The Surroundings.

Being within a few hundred meters from the USA the Canadian side resonates very well with the feel of our neighbors to the south. I always wondered why the immediate Niagara Falls area looked so rundown and so American. No offense but it has a different vibe than the rest of Canada. Not to beat up on any American friends but it feels so much more like America.

Maybe it is the many visitors that come across the border. Maybe it is because of the many Canadians there that visit America. No matter and do not hate, please. These are only observations.

What Made This Special?

One, I met an old friend from high school that I covered in the previous blog. This was special because I went with my son. I have never been to Niagara Falls with just my son.  We have been to Niagara Falls before but not as a father-and-son road trip.

It was fun to have my son and I explore a little and create content for TikTok and then enjoy some Beaver Tails and a cup of coffee. Despite what I had said earlier about the surrounding area, Niagara Falls and the Clifton Hill area is a beautiful tourist traps. Though it was cold and a bit windy, we felt comfortable by midday and did some amazing videos as well as cool pics for the blog and TikTok.

We finished our trip by going to Mike’s Pies and pigged out on coconut pies to add to our very unhealthy day of junk food. However, we had a great time, and created amazing memories for us to share.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
