Okolo jazera Erie
Na prelome rokov sa už tradične uskutočnia Majstrovstvá sveta v ľadovom hokeji do 20 rokov, ktoré sa tento rok konajú v americkom meste Buffalo. Keďže v týchto častiach USA a Kanady som bol iba rok dozadu, zvažujem, že tentokrát by som výlet poňal trochu dobrodružnejšie a tak to určite nebude celý týždeň v meste šampionátu, ale okruh okolo Erijského jazera a jeho priľahlých miest.
