HIKING ARIZONA
by Donna Yuen

I have my walking stick, sunscreen, water, and I am ready for some hiking in Arizona! I also have my camera to capture the grand vistas I have until now only dreamt of seeing. My friend and I start with an easy, interesting trail: beginning in Mesa, we hike through history, along the infamous Apache Trail. The jagged peaks of the Superstition Mountains evoke images of cowboys and gold rush miners who lived here during the glory days of the Wild West. Quaint churches and crumbling ghost towns, help me visualize how life used to be for the ranchers, pioneers and the Apache Indians travelling along this trail in the Sonoran Desert. read more »


CAPITAL WINTER FUN IN OTTAWA:
SKATING ON THE RIDEAU!

by James Ross

The sun is out, and the day is cool, crisp and beautiful, and I am doing something I’ve loved to do since I was a toddler – skating. I am not just skating in circles around the local arena, mind you; I’m off with my family, gliding along the longest skating rink in the world, Ottawa’s Rideau Canal. The iconic skate-way is one of the must-do activities in Ottawa, and one of those things I have wanted to cross off my bucket list. We laced up our skates in the warming hut at the south end of the ice-way, by the Dow’s Lake Pavilion near Carleton University, and headed out to skate the full 7.8 kilometres frozen route into downtown Ottawa near the National Art’s Centre. read more »


SNOWBIRDING IT, COTTAGE STYLE
by Jane Cassie

Where can you book a beautiful four-hundred square foot fully-equipped holiday cottage that's close to languid pools, awesome activities and ongoing entertainment, for a fraction of the price of a comparable hotel stay? Normally we're not on the lookout for accommodation when we motor south to our favourite snowbird home, as our roving fifth wheel is always in tow. But due to unexpected circumstances this year, our visit to Golden Village Palms RV Resort (GVP), in Hemet California, needs to be a shorter one, so we zip down quickly by air to where a park model awaits our arrival. read more »


A SOUTH INDIAN CHRISTMAS
by Irene Butler

Fishermen in from their catch re-set their nets. The Arabian Sea laps at our feet as we walk along the cream-coloured sand. All around us are frolicking native vacationers and foreign sun seekers. Holy cows commandeer a section of beach. Stray dogs chase scurrying crabs. Swaying palms sweep the sky. read more »

A MOBILE TENTED NAMIBIAN SAFARI
by Cherie Thiessen

A soft voice outside our expansive tent wakes us in the pre-dawn. It’s our Karibu Safari guide, Lourens Gaseb.

Normally a 5:00 a.m. wake-up would be deadly, but we’re happy to rise from our cozy beds and turn on our overhead solar-powered lights. We take turns in the tent’s bathroom, using the ‘en suite’ facilities and washing with hot water from the thermos provided by our safari crew. read more »


A PLACE FOR REMEMBERING - THE CANADIAN WAR MUSEUM
by James Ross

There are special moments all over Canada every year at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. It is a day of national commemoration for the more than 100,000 Canadians who have died in military service. One exceptional place to visit on this important day is The Canadian War Museum, located near downtown Ottawa. With its prize-winning and richly symbolic architecture, this was the city’s most visited museum last year. read more »


SAND DUNE ADVENTURES IN SEDONA
by Lauren Kramer

I’d come to this city of 10,000 to check out the red rocks for which it is famous, and quickly learned I was one of some two million visitors who arrive into town each year for precisely the same reason. Some go hiking up and around the red rocks, others choose mountain biking, helicopter flights or jeep tours on the dusty roads. But there’s also a good number who are only too happy to partake in the ‘new age stuff’ I’d been warned of - an industry spawned from the notion that vortexes or spiritual energy points cluster around Sedona, enhancing prayer and meditation. Vortex tour brochures touted everything from spiritual growth and self-improvement to yoga and transformative personal experiences at those sites. read more »


IN FLANDERS FIELDS MUSEUM
by Chris McBeath

Whether you’re in Ypres for a vacation or a Battlefield Tour, there are two must-sees: The Menin Gate, one of Europe’s most iconic memorials to WWI, and the In Flanders Field Museum which brings you up front and personal to the pointless carnage of that four-year, hellish struggle. read more »


October 2015
BEDAZZLED BY ST. PETERSBURG’S IMPERIAL MONUMENTS
by Chris Millikan

Cruising aboard HAL’s Eurodam familiarizes us with captivating Baltic ports. Of them all, St Petersburg stands out. There, ship’s excursions prove perfect for first time visitors like us. With the need for costly visas eliminated and transportation simplified, two sightseeing days are filled to the max. ... read more »


GETAWAY TO SPOOKY FUN AT OTTAWA’S ESCAPE MANOR
by James Ross

The heavy door of the wine vault slams behind us, leaving us in the dark. We hear the horrible, cackling laugh of a killer, “Ah,ha,ha,ha,” echoing down the corridor, trailing off in a menacing wail. “You’re all going to die!” Then in a final sinister threat, the fiend promises to be back in exactly 45 minutes to finish the job. There is nothing but darkness and silence, save for the big clock on the wall, counting down the seconds to our demise, “tick-tock, tick-tock!” ... read more »


KOTA BHARU AND KELANTAN:
MALAYSIA’S CULTURAL HEARTLAND.

by Margaret Deefholts

The Malay woman grins at my exclamation of amazement. Her several chins quiver with mirth as she lifts a basket filled with prawns, each the size of a wrestler’s fist, and holds it up for my camera. From across the aisle, another old woman, wearing a scarf around her head, beckons eagerly. She wants me to take a picture of her turtle eggs. ... read more »


GHOSTLY CASTLES IN WALES
by Hans Tammemagi

In Wales, you can hardly travel more than a few kilometres before stubbing your toes on towering piles of blood-and-history-stained stones. Stone castles, that is. They come in many sizes, shapes and states of repair. Some are faint traces on hilltops, while others are thumping great fortifications in city centres, barely changed over the centuries. Many were erected during the conquest of Wales. ... read more »


PACE SETTING IN PARIS
by Jane Cassie

My husband and I are big walkers and it sure comes in handy when exploring Paris. Brent has even downloaded Pacer, an IPhone app, that detects our steps, distances and calories burned, a definite perk that helps justify our intake of croissants. ... read more »


September 2015
AFOOT IN COPENHAGEN:
EXPLORING DENMARK’S ROYAL CAPITAL

by Rick Millikan

Denmark’s compact capital is perfect for exploring afoot. Strolling from our hotel past the bustling train station, we soon arrive in Copenhagen’s historic center. Bronze dragons line lofty City Hall’s terrace. A golden statue above its main entry represents Bishop Absalon, the city’s 12th century founder. ... read more »


DISCOVERING SOUTHERN ICELAND
by Julie H. Ferguson

When IcelandAir began flying from Canadian hubs in 2014, I took advantage of their generous stop-over policy as I flew back to Vancouver from Europe. My ten-day exploration of north and south Iceland in late-September was risky weather-wise, but I got lucky. The rich autumn colours and mostly dry sunny days were a welcome bonus in a land of unpredictable weather. ... read more »


RAJASTHAN’S CITY OF GOLD – JAISALMER
by Margaret Deefholts

“I can’t!” I wail, looking at the camel kneeling on the sand, “I can’t climb onto it!” The camel, eyes hooded and disdainful, turns its head to look at me. We are in Khuri, Rajasthan, 41 miles out of the city of Jaisalmer, and heading into the Thar Desert, to view the sunset – reputedly a dramatic sight as it sinks into the rolling sand dunes. ... read more »


HIT THE ROAD!
A CIRCLE DRIVE FROM WHITEHORSE

by Karoline Cullen

Two old timers slouch in chairs outside the saloon. Hats clamped low on their foreheads, stubbled chins, and dusty boots. “Guess I should head home,” one drawls. “Why do you want to do that?” questions the other as they settle more comfortably in their seats. Nothing happens in a hurry in Chicken, Alaska. ... read more »


August 2015
ARTSY AMSTERDAM VS VILLAGE VIBES: HOLLAND
by Irene Butler

My husband Rick and I are cruising along one of the many canals radiating out from central Amsterdam like silky blue ribbons joined with solid stitches of bridges to the tapestry of land. Captain Frank is adept at maneuvering our Blue Boat past breathtaking scenery while we listen to more tidbits about this historic city. ... read more »


THE BEST OF BEIJING
by Margaret Deefholts

Despite warnings about Beijing’s pollution, the scene from my Ritz Carlton Hotel suite’s windows on this April morning, encompass clear blue skies above a panoramic view of the city’s financial district. In a courtyard below, citizens practise Tai Chi exercises, their elongated forms in the bright sunlight, twisting and bending in a seemingly choreographed shadow-play. ... read more »


NORTH SHORE LOUISIANA:
SO MUCH MORE THAN ALL THAT JAZZ

by Lauren Kramer

Our jeep is stationary and I’m marveling at the scenery when I feel someone nuzzling my back very gently. Turning slowly I find myself eye to eye with an adult zebra whose broad smile displays a set of large, yellow teeth. His message is clear: “Corn, please, ma’am!” ... read more »


STAIRE TO BAGPIPES IN BELGIUM
by Chris McBeath

Without the Red Star Line, the likes of Fred Astaire and Irving Berlin may never have inspired our creative world so expansively; former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir may never stepped onto the world stage, and without Arthur Murray my Aunt Julie may never have learned to Waltz. These were just a handful of the roughly 60 million migrants who left Germany and Eastern Europe between 1815-1940 in the hope of a better life in the New World: North America. ... read more »


GOING WITH THE FLOW IN SOUTHERN FRANCE
by Jane Cassie

When Mother Nature opens her floodgates, all you can do is go with the flow. Two years ago my husband and I were on a Viking European river cruise, but because of high waters we bussed more than we boated. Although it had been disappointing, the company did everything they could to make sure the trip was memorable and gave us a partial refund to use on a future booking. Well, here we are, back again, this time to cruise Southern France. ... read more »

A JAUNT THROUGH JUNEAU: ALASKA’S CAPITAL CITY
by Margaret Deefholts

Across the gray waters of the Gastineau Channel the mountains are humpbacked shadows, with thin skeins of cloud drifting across their summits. The Norwegian Sun is the only cruise ship on Juneau’s wharf today, and despite the thin drizzle, passengers continue to flock down the ramp. They wear yellow rain-slickers over thick jackets or hooded parkas as a defense against the rapier-sharp Alaskan wind. ... read more »


ACROSS LANGUID LAOS TO HUSTLING HANOI
Story and Photos by Barry Truter

Xin Chao (good-day): Greetings from Laos, officially the Lao People's Democratic Republic. I’ve been riding local buses across northern Thailand to the Mekong River and the Laos border town of Houei Xia. Now I'm traveling down the Mekong on a slow boat. The river is broad with sandy banks, at times narrowing to rocky channels. The vegetation is lush and green, the area sparsely populated. ... read more »


SUN PEAKS SUMMER A Wildflower Wonderland
By Chris Millikan

A getaway to B.C.’s interior introduces us to Sun Peaks in summer where comfortable lodgings in the heart of the village make a perfect ‘base camp’ for alpine hiking. Nestling amid three mountains, the charming town center conjures thoughts of fairytale villages in Austria’s Alps. Pastel three-story buildings embrace a winding, brick-paved mall. Decorative trimmings, window boxes filled with red geraniums and simple signage embellishes facades. Like our inn, many boast balconies. Arcades open onto specialty shops, boutiques, galleries and cafés with al fresco seating. Luscious ham and tomato crepes for breakfast on one such patio kick off our first morning. ... read more »


WHISTLER WEEKEND WARRIORS
by Colleen Friesen

The odds of having a great Whistler weekend increase exponentially if you start by sabraging off the top of a champagne bottle in the Bearfoot Bistro's wine cellar. And, if you end that evening in a Pan Pacific Mountainside suite after multiple courses of divine tastes and velvety glasses of red wine at the aforementioned Bearfoot Bistro; and if the evening also included four chilly tastings in the -32 degree Celsius Vodka Room while snuggled into a Canada Goose jacket well...life's alright. ... read more »

A LITTLE CARIB IN ALL OF US
by Jane Cassie

His pearly white smile contrasts with his ebony-rich skin. He saunters barefoot, showing no urgency about getting anywhere (or at any time), and the slogan on his T-shirt depicts him to a tee. Although the catchphrase, "There's a little Carib in all of us" is advertising the island's local beer, by the end of our Grenada visit, it signifies a much deeper meaning. ... read more »


FAMILY FUN IN IDAHO
by Lauren Kramer

A chill settles over my body as the dark tunnel swallows me and my bike. I pedal hard, pushing for the light at the end of the 1.66-mile dungeon and keeping a sharp lookout for deer, moose and elk. The animals are elusive on the day I'm burrowing into the innards of Idaho's Bitterroot Mountains, but the tunnel's moisture leaves me a triumphant stripe of mud down my back. ... read more »


PEDDLING PUGLIA
by Cherie Thiessen

At the heel of Italy's stylish boot, the southeastern part of the region of Puglia, is the Salento Peninsula, consisting of historic towns, olive groves, fields, broad plains, vineyards and low lying hills. My companion David and I like low lying hills because today we need to cycle 60 kilometres of them en route to the easternmost town in Italy, the Roman town of Otranto. ... read more »


STEPPING BEYOND THE TOURIST ZONE
by Donna Yuen

The tiny Vietnamese village of My Hoi is not on any tourist map. Nor is it on the typical tourist itinerary. Fortunately, it's on mine. Located 130 kilometres south of Ho Chi Minh City in Tien Giang Province, My Hoi is a poverty stricken town of eight thousand people. During this visit to Vietnam, a fellow Canadian friend has invited me to join a group of thirty volunteers consisting primarily of Ho Chi Minh doctors and a few Canadians. Rural villages surrounding My Hoi have also been informed that we will be coming to help. Approximately four hundred people are patiently waiting when we arrive. They are in desperate need of medical treatment, pharmaceuticals and household basics. Upon arrival, the doctors immediately go to their pre-arranged stations where tables and chairs have been set up for medical exams. The remaining volunteers unload the toys, blankets, and food from the truck. They work like well-oiled machines. I can see it's not their first time doing this. ... read more »

SANTIAGO IN A RUSH
by Hans Tammemagi

I faced a challenge. How could I explore Santiago, located smack in the middle of the 6,000-kilometre-long shoestring that comprises Chile, in only 24 hours?

Under an azure sky I headed up San Cristobal Hill to the gleaming white statue of the Virgin, a religious and visual focal point of the city. Surrounded by parkland and accessible by funicular, the site is popular, drawing walkers, bikers, and picnickers. Panoramic views of the city and Andes foothills lay before me with the 64-storey, 300-metre-high Costanera Centre skyscraper-the continent's tallest edifice-towering over the rest of the city. ... read more »


PADDLEWHEELING UP THE FRASER RIVER
by Margaret Deefholts

It is one of those perfect days - brilliant sunshine, powder blue skies and a soft breeze that carries the scent of summer on its breath. Along with a group of friends, I board The Native, a pretty paddle-wheeler moored on the Fraser River alongside the New Westminster boardwalk. ... read more »


NEW YORK'S TENEMENT MUSEUM
A Salute To Early Immigrants

by Chris McBeath

The Lower East Side Tenement Museum is one of the more intriguing activities New York has to offer. Housed at 97 Orchard Street, the museum is part of a unique network of 'social conscience' museums that use real life stories and heirlooms to recreate history. Here, it's of the everyday lives of those immigrants who helped shape New York's history and culture. ... read more »


ONTARIO'S HEARTLAND -
Exploring St. Jacobs And The Waterloo Region

by Jamie Ross

I remember as a young boy when my father, during the weeks leading up to one particular Christmas, had ensconced himself in our basement for hours on end. I was warned that the depths of our home were temporarily out-of-bounds, so I sat upstairs and listened to the strange sounds from below, with an over-powering sense of curiosity and wonder. On Christmas morning I was invited down. He had built a wonderful model railway that would eventually take up the majority of my bedroom. ... read more »


TALLINN: ESTONIA'S GOTHIC SPLENDOUR
by Irene Butler

I suddenly feel my hand being clutched, and not by my husband Rick! I turn to see a knight in chainmail armour falling before me on bended knee - not for undying love, but for a 1€ photo op. We are in front of the Old Town Hall which has been on this spot since at least 1322, the present building dating back to 1404. Vana Toomas (Old Thomas), symbolizing Tallinn, appears as a weather-vane atop the hall. Legend has it that as a peasant lad, Old Thomas won an archery contest reserved for nobility, and instead of being punished he was invited to become a guard. ... read more »

ANTIGUA, GUATEMALA
World Heritage City

by Chris Millikan

Cruising through the Panama Canal to San Diego offers us a string of riveting Central American excursions, including a memorable daytrip from Puerto Quetzal to Antigua.

With other early birds, we disembark the Veendam, stream past marimba musicians and through a handicraft marketplace to our waiting coach. "Welcome," greets guide Karen, "Today, we'll visit our colonial capital in the central highlands, heart of the Mayan world." Ninety-minutes of rolling countryside, lush forests and distant volcano views bring us to Guatemala's World Heritage city. ... read more »


BELLINGHAM , WASHINGTON - A THOUSAND MEMORIES
by Hans Tammemagi

I settled into the Semiahmoo Resort, no ordinary hostelry. Located at the tip of a curving, mile-long spit - a county park - the resort is secluded and surrounded by nature. A cannery operated here from 1882 to 1964 and several of the buildings, including an iconic tower, have been preserved and incorporated into the resort. Historic photos and artifacts abound. There's a sense of times past. ... read more »


HELPLESS IN HELSINKI
by Colleen Friesen

You can't say we weren't warned.

Upon announcing our pending trip to Finland, the cautions came thick and fast. The well-intentioned advisories all ended up sounding fairly similar, the gist of which was this: people in Finland are reserved, rarely smile and like to keep to themselves. ... read more »


THESE GEESE FLY AWAY HOME EVERY SPRING
by John Geary

I expected to hear honking. But these greater snow geese are too busy searching for food in the low-tide mud along the banks of the St. Lawrence to honk much.
The drizzling rain mutes sound further, so what noise there was did not travel far. We stood in the rain for several minutes, watching some slip-slide their way along the slippery mud, others swimming about, close to shore. ... read more »

JOURNEY TOWARD THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH
by Irene Butler

In each country we visit, my husband Rick and I keep our eyes peeled for something unique to that country; something that cannot be seen or experienced anywhere else in the world. While blazing around the best of Iceland's geothermal activity of billowing geysers, steaming hot springs, thunderous waterfalls, we get wind of such a phenomenon: Thrihnukagigur. Further investigation reveals, we can be lowered "into" a volcano. Normally, after a mega-volcanic eruption the magma hardens closing the crater opening. Not so with Thrihnukagigur which, after its mega blast 4,000 years ago, an anomaly of nature occurred-the magma did not remain in the cavity! Volcanologist Haraldur Sigurdsson's explanation, "It's like somebody came and pulled the plug, and all the magma ran down out of it." We are hyped up to see this oddity of nature! ... read more »


LEÓN, NICARAGUA
SOUL OF CENTRAL AMERICA

by Rick Millikan

In the center of this venerable city stands World Heritage León Cathedral. Blending a unique baroque flair and neo-classical grandeur, a haloed Virgin Mary stands gloriously atop. And just below, sculpted pairs of husky Atlanteans support the heavy beams between its central gable and bell towers. Interestingly, these supermen refer subtly to the 17th century's vision of Atlantis and its link to the New World. The façade's twelve ornamental columns conjure the eras of Rome and Greece. ... read more »


THE JEWEL OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO:
Prince Edward County

by Julie H. Ferguson

Prince Edward County (PEC) is a rural treasure that floats in fresh water and is linked to mainland Ontario by a short isthmus at its northwestern corner. Self-contained and tranquil, it is a delightful place to relax awhile. Good hotels, cottages, and B&Bs await the tired explorer. Although recommended for weekend getaways, as a first-timer and someone from BC, I opted for a week. I tried two hotels: one, a restored colonial-style mansion overlooking Picton Bay; the other in the County's heart, based on an 1860 farm with its own brewery. ... read more »


VISIT STRATFORD FOR THEATRE, FOOD AND FUN
by Jamie Ross

We are at the end of a wonderful tour of the Stratford Festival's Costume and Props Warehouse, the world's largest performing arts archive, when we are afforded a chance to try on some of the stage-worn costumes. I had hoped for Macbeth, Hamlet or Lear, but instead am coerced into dressing up as some Scandinavian opera singer, in gown, horned-helmet and golden pigtails, while the rest of the group giggles and snaps photos that I know will not be flattering. I had hoped for a Shakespearean lead man, but was rather playing the fool. ... read more »


February 2015
LEPRECHAUNS AND LIBATIONS AT MERRIDALE CIDERY
by Cherie Thiessen

We're on a mystical hunt. Signs on the 1.5-kilometre trail around the 9-hectare orchard and especially along the riparian section, tell us about the flora, the fauna, and the Leprechauns. It doesn't take long before my friend, Mirjam, is crouched down in front of a Lilliputian door in an alder trunk. "Here's one!" Several diminutive dwellings begin to appear, thumbnail sized lounging chairs, twig shelters, coloured stones. Who would have guessed faeries, gnomes, elves and dryads lived in Vancouver Island's Cowichan Valley? ... read more »


ANCIENT FOOTSTEPS IN SANTA FE
by Lauren Kramer

Sante Fe is rich with murmurs from the ancient past and to hear them you only have to visit Tsankawi, an unexcavated site that forms part of Bandelier National Monument. Here, once you've trekked up the dusty paths and slipped through the narrow channels of the hillside, you find yourself on a centuries-old path where the ancestral Pueblans once lived. ... read more »


REMOTE AND WILD: THE SCOTTISH HEBRIDES
by Julie H. Ferguson

Three weeks and fifteen islands developed into a trip of a lifetime. Every September morning I wondered why I hadn't explored the Scottish Hebrides before. White sand beaches and turquoise sea, purple-washed mountains and golden glens, no tourists and little traffic tempted me to explore every day. Then there were the sheep - more sheep than people. ... read more »


MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: MISSION REVEALED
by Chris McBeath

We were given two minutes to accept our mission before the room darkened and shielded us from the evidence. Just two minutes to assume our legend-our cover-which was to be our only protection over the next three hours as we lied, side-stepped and tried to stay alive in the cold, unforgiving world of espionage. It's a world few of us ever realize up close, but at Washington DC's International Spy Museum, it's one which is as captivating as it is imaginative, from the moment you step out of the 'briefing' room. Assuming, of course, that you've accepted your mission. ... read more »


January 2015
EXPLORING THE MANGROVES: WE 'CAYMAN' BY KAYAK
by John Geary

I'd read so much about the dangers of jellyfish, I couldn't believe our guide, Bob, was about to reach into the water and pick up one up-in his bare hand. "Hmmm…I wonder if we can navigate back out through the mangroves, to the beach ourselves?" I thought, visions of a suddenly incapacitated guide dancing through my head. ... read more »


BOOM OR BUST IN DAWSON CITY
by Karoline Cullen

They lean into each other. With blackened windows and peeling paint they are obviously abandoned. Yet next door, a modern cafe is abuzz with patrons. The contrast between these buildings encapsulates the boom and bust cycle of a Klondike Gold Rush town. ... read more »


THE TREASURE OF THE BLACK PEARL
by Chris McBeath

Say the words 'black pearl' and images of saucy pirate Jack Sparrow may flash into your mind. After all, black pearls have always been among the most sought jewels in the world and have, no doubt, been the treasure of many a pirate's swag. In the Marquesas Islands, however, these luminescent gemstones are a beachside commodity. ... read more »


SAVOURING VANCOUVER ISLAND-ONE BITE AT A TIME
by Colleen Friesen

Along with some fellow travel writers, I've arrived in Victoria, British Columbia. We've been outfitted with some cool cruiser bikes from The Pedaler, along with the aforementioned promise of sweat-free city-riding. In retrospect, I wish Ms. Lee had taken us on a hilly marathon to help combat the calories we were about to take in, because this bike-propelled food tour was merely the start to an epic four-day Savour Vancouver Island culinary press trip. ... read more »


DAY TRIPPING TO XIHUACAN
Zihuatanejo, Mexico

by Chris Millikan

Cruise ship tenders shuttle us across sparkling cobalt waters to Zihuatanejo's docks. And joining fellow history buffs aboard a waiting tour bus, we head out into the Mexican countryside. Within thirty minutes, we're standing inside Xihuacan (she-wha-cahn) Museum, keen to investigate this archeological site open since in 2013. ... read more »
