Superior Stops

View Round the World on shoestring's travel map.

Whereas in Europe and Asia we could rely almost exclusively on hostels, in North America we've had to improvise a bit more. We've already stayed in hostels, hotels, motels and a B&B, and yesterday we added to that list a hall of residence - Sibley Hall, at Confederation College in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Cheaply built and labyrinthine, it's like halls of residence everywhere, but at least it was a reasonably priced place to sleep.


After discovering we wouldn't be able to head back down into the US at Winnipeg to visit Chicago we considered staying on the Greyhound all the way to Toronto, but the 32-hour journey didn't exactly appeal. Instead, in addition to our stop at Thunder Bay we'll stay in Sault Ste Marie tonight. Despite these cities being a nine-hour journey apart they're both on the banks of Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes. With a surface area of nearly 32,000 square miles, it's bigger than Scotland.
