8: Geography | People that are living in Ontario, usually expect cold winters, and enjoy winter sports. Weather in Ontario can be unpredictable, and times extreme, but the climate is generally described as continental. |

9: Cultural Awareness | In Ontario, French and English languages are spoken, 56% of Ontario's population speaks French and English. The Canadian one dollar coins are called loonies, while the two dollar coins are called toonies. |

10: The great food Festivals | The great food festivals in Ontario is celebrated highly. Festivals are held every year, and more than 100 chefs and restaurants help with cooking and providing the food. |

11: Journal Entry #1 | Today I attended the Food Festival held annually in London, Ontario. I tried many different foods prepared by different chefs. There were 55 food venders. There was an abundance of fresh fruit. I had pineapple on a stick as well some juicy ribs. I rode some rides, and then listened to several bands. It was a fun day. |

12: I took the Journey Behind the Falls tour of Horseshoe Falls in Niagara. We stood in the mist where the Horseshoe Falls tumbles from 13 stories above. This is where 1/5 of the world's fresh water comes crashing down. It sounds like thunder. It was pretty cool. | Journal Entry #2 |

13: Journal Entry #3 | Today I sped upriver in a powerful Jet Boat towards the Niagara Gorge and the Niagara Whirlpool. During the 45 minute cruise, the history and geography of the river was explained. This was an exciting ride, and I stayed completely dry! |

14: Journal Entry #4 | I went backpacking on the Abes and Essen Trail. There is an excellent lookout above Essen Lake. The trail consists of three overlapping loops. It took seven hours. It was a workout! |

15: Compare/Contrast | Both Overland Park and Ontario are in North America, but Overland Park is in the United States, while Ontario is in Canada. Overland Park's population is 173,000 although Ontario's population reaches 12,000,000. Ontario offers backpacking trails, but in contrast, Overland Park's trails are for biking, walking, and jogging. |

16: Cause and Effect | This trip was the welcome break I needed from school. I enjoyed the excitement of seeing the waterfall and walking behind it, as well as riding on the jet boat. I appreciated the peaceful backpacking and the beautiful scenery. This was a needed change from my normal hectic schedule. I now feel rejuvenated and ready to return home and back to school. |

17: Conclusion | Even though, ''There's no place like home,'' I'm thankful for the opportunity to travel to another country. My trip to Ontario, Canada was very rewarding.
