What is your favorite place in Canada?
Without a doubt, the gulf islands of BC. I spent every summer of my childhood sailing around from Saltspring to Lasquiti, and each island offers a unique experience. Also, it’s amazing how many gorgeous beaches are hidden around the coast of this country – you don’t have to go far for soft sand or bright blue waters!
What is your best travel memory in Canada?
I was fortunate enough to go on our Snow Train to the Rockies journey onboard VIA Rail, and I have to say it was the most incredible experience. Staying at the Fairmont Mountain Region properties is magical, and I was able to try so many activities from ice climbing to helicopter touring. While summer is great in Canada, I highly suggest taking a train trip in the winter for a true wonderland experience!
Tell us about a special discovery that you’ve made in Canada.
I've lived in British Columbia my entire life, and yet I hadn't known that there were luxury wilderness resorts here until I started working in tourism. I've had the chance to visit both Farewell Harbour Lodge and Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, and at both properties you really feel like you've discovered a secret and exclusive haven, tucked away in the wild.
