Ladies and gentlemen,
Even though I continued to stay in Winnipeg on the twenty-third day of my summer vacation, I managed to have a quite eventful day. I visited two outstanding museums with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and the Manitoba Museum. However, I also spent time outside and visited the campus of the University of Winnipeg and the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival. The weather was great and the atmosphere was relaxed. It was a very beautiful day.

On the twenty-second day of my epic summer trip, I decided to stay in Winnipeg and spend a quiet day in Manitoba's capital. I went shopping and visited Assiniboine Park Zoo. The weather was average with intense showers in the late afternoon. Still, I was able to see and visit a few beautiful places.

On the twenty-first day of my trip through Central and Western Canada, I drove a short distance from Brandon, Manitoba to Winnipeg, Manitoba. I decided to spend the end of my trip in Manitoba's diversified capital. I visited Portage la Prairie in the early afternoon, checked in at my hotel in Winnipeg and went to a Canadian Football League game between the Ottawa Redblacks and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. I'm obviously a supporter of the former team but the Ottawa Redblacks are having a terrible season. It was no surprise that the Winnipeg Blue Bombers easily defeated them and won 1-31. Despite the bitter result, it was an entertaining game and the fans in Winnipeg truly seem to be the loudest in the Canadian Football League.

On the twentieth day of my wonderful summer vacation, I drove from Regina, Saskatchewan to Brandon, Manitoba. I spent the morning in Saskatchewan's gorgeous capital, went hiking in Moosomin Regional Park in the afternoon and visited the wonderful little town of Souris in the evening, I arrived in Brandon late in the evening, was warmly welcomed at my hotel and had an excellent dinner.

On the nineteenth day of my epic summer vacation, I only drove a short distance from Moose Jaw to Regina and discovered two of the most beautiful cities in all of Canada. Crescent Park in downtown Moose Jaw is absolutely gorgeous with its fountains, monuments and streams. There are numerous interesting shops in downtown Moose Jaw such as an outstanding meadery. I decided to buy two meads, one for the birthday of a friend in Germany and one for myself and both were excellent. I also admired the unique Mac the Moose statue as well as Snowbird Airplane. A few kilometers further east, Regina turned out to be a small but gorgeous capital with numerous stunning trails around Wascana Lake. Saskatchewan Legislative Building and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Gardens are truly gorgeous as well. I also discovered the smallest but most complete shopping mall on my trip with Cornwall Centre. I was so impressed by Moose Jaw and Regina that I definitely want to return there. People should stop underestimating Saskatchewan and visit this gorgeous province. Even though I really liked Manitoba and Alberta, I would say that Saskatchewan was my favourite destination this summer.
