What is your best travel memory in Canada?
I spent two months in the quiet mountain town of Revelstoke and absolutely loved it! A city bylaw prohibits chain stores to develop, resulting in a town made up of quaint streets lined with mom-and-pop shops . Revelstoke is known for its skiing in the winter, but I fell in love with the hiking and birding this town has to offer.
What is your favorite place in Canada?
Helmcken Falls Lodge in Clearwater, BC for a truly authentic Canadian experience. The lodge offers a rustic wilderness retreat and endless outdoor activity like hiking, horseback riding and canoeing. After a day of chasing waterfalls, just kick back and unwind in the family-run cozy lodge.
What one thing in Canada should you experience at least once in your life?
Take a trip up to Whistler at Christmastime. The lights strewn across the trees and buildings, combined with the powder-soft snow, make this village a holiday paradise! Hit the slopes in the morning, grab lunch at one of the many independent restaurants, take in some impressive First Nations artwork at the Audain Art Museum, and cap it all off with an evening skate at the Whistler Olympic Plaza, with the 5 rings twinkling nearby.
