Tell us about a special discovery that you’ve made in Canada?
The Okanagan Valley in BC is a special place in Canada. One of my favorite hotels is Sparking Hill Resort in Vernon; the architecture, the outstanding spa and service as well as the quality of their food makes me want to come back soon. Add a round of golf at Predator Ridge and end the stay with a dinner event at Mission Winery sitting in their patio restaurant overlooking Lake Okanagan, sipping their award winning wines - life at its best!
What is your best travel memory in Canada?
Quebec in October with the fall colors changing the landscape into a painting. Aside from beautiful Quebec City and its cobble-stone alleys, the drive further north alongside the St. Lawrence River opens new vistas after each corner. Baie St-Paul and its art galleries and little restaurants, whale watching in Tadoussac, stopping at farms and wineries en route and tasting local product. And finally seeing native wildlife at the amazing Zoo Felicien before our journey ended again – just spectacular.
