What is your favorite place in Alaska?
Homer, Alaska is a really amazing place. You travel along through grassland and forested area before you head down a hill where it opens up and all you can see is the ocean surrounded by magnificent snow capped mountains. You can walk along the beach and watch sea otters playing in the water and eagles flying above. It’s a gorgeous place to sit back and enjoy nature.
What is your best travel memory in Canada?
Spending a weekend in Clayoquot Resort was amazing. From the luxury tents to the amazing gourmet food and drinks to the great activities; it was a fantastic experience. Horseback riding beside an open field where horses and bears were feeding beside one another was an unforgettable sight. Shooting at the range, visiting Meares Island and going fishing were just a few highlights that made this unique experience simply unforgettable.
What one thing in Canada should you experience at least once in your life?
Dog sledding in the Rocky Mountains. I took my mother dog sledding in Lake Louise last year and it was truly an experience of a lifetime. Being in the sleigh lead by a team of barking excited dogs while the snow fell around me was as magical as it gets.
