Where to Go Snowshoeing in Jasper National Park

If you love snowshoeing, then Jasper National Park is a terrific place to visit in winter. Enjoy kilometres of untracked trails, sublime mountain views, snowy meadows, quiet lakes, and a pretty good chance of seeing an elk. Winter is long in Jasper – and so is the season for snowshoeing, especially at higher elevation locations. On the days when the snowpack is thin, hike the trails instead, with a pair of icers tucked in your pack should you need them. There’s lots of snowshoeing in Jasper cl...

How to plan a winter trip to Banff

The jagged peaks and alpine lakes of Banff National Park fill 2,500 square miles of western Alberta. The area, which encompasses the towns of Banff and Lake Louise, along with three ski resorts and some of Canada’s most rugged backcountry terrain, is both surreal and irresistible. You could almost picture Frodo Baggins on his fantastic mission — traversing his way up and across the mountains, narrowly evading capture among the craggy pitches that stretch across the provincial border into Brit...

Fairmont canine ambassador program promotes human-animal connection

It’s uncommon to see people flop down on the carpet in an upscale hotel lobby. But at the Fairmont Banff Springs on a Friday morning, a middle-aged woman from Indianapolis and two kids from Montreal are the latest of many to reject decorum when faced with Bear’s charms. The black lab gazes at them with liquid amber eyes while rolling over for a belly rub. It’s all in a day’s work for Bear, a canine ambassador who give travelers a dose of human-animal connection.

Unique Sleeps: Fairmont Kea Lani, Wailea, Maui

There are not too many places in the world where you can be sitting on your hotel balcony, watching whales breach right in front of you. We’re not talking a few little splashes or sprays on the horizon. At the Fairmont Kea Lani Maui, guests have 180 degree views out to sea, and the prime viewing spot just happens to be anywhere you can see the water. Whales breach just off the shore during migration season (Jan-March) and it’s a show that is pretty hard to get sick of. It’s how we begin our morn...

Heaven and Hell: Panchakarma as a Reflection of (My Time in) India

India showed me both heavenly bliss, and hellish agony. So too, curiously, did the two weeks of Panchakarma (an Ayurvedic therapy) that I did whilst in India. This is my story. It’s an epic tale, so please, settle in and prepare to be entertained; it’s a bit of a rollercoaster ride. Travel is Contextual. Before I get into the delights (and horrors) of both India and Panchakarma, it’s important for me to re-iterate that travel is contextual. I’ve said it many times before – especially whenever ...

Acclimatizing to India, In Jaipur (Vlog Ep. 29)

I was totally freaked out about traveling to India. People usually start describing the place with a long list of incredibly unsavoury characteristics (such as noise, dirt, chaos, touts, beggars, scammers, and more), followed by a dreamy far-away look in their eyes while saying it’s their favourite country ever. I didn’t get it, so I had to go. And my journey, started in Jaipur. Preparing For India Prior to arriving in India, I read The Shadow that Seeks the Sun; a new release written by a guy...
