What is your favorite place in Canada?
Montreal, the 'joie de vivre' of Canada. Electric and alive, there's a charge in the air. It's like Europe and New York all in one place. It's fashionable and fast paced, you'll discover the French way: to set trends, live and enjoy life to the fullest. Open air cafes are a great place to sit and people watch or just soak in the rich culture and old buildings. Lounges, bars, and restaurants are open until the wee hours, and there are countless old historical churches and cobble stone streets to explore.
What one thing in Canada should you experience at least once in your life?
I've never been interested in Cowboys or the Wild Wild West, but experiencing the Calgary Stampede Centennial turned me into a fan! For 10 days every July Calgary is buzzing with energy. From world-class entertainers and a vibrant nightlife to the fantastic midway carnival and art exhibitions - there's activities for every age and interest. Who knew that dancing in cowboy boots would be so much fun?
