When we lived in Vancouver, we visited Whistler many times and whilst I always knew it was a famous winter destination, I had no idea how much I would also come to love it in the summer time. Here are some of my favorite things to do in Whistler, no matter what time of year it is!
It was my first time at the CNE, or as they call it here, the ex! It was everything I imagined and more. So much food, so many carnies, so many rides and things to do!
So for those of you who don’t know, wildlife spotting is one of my favourite things to do, and when I found out that Moose are often sighted at Algonquin Park, it was high on my list of places I needed to go! So we planned a weekend trip and here were my highlights.
The hike to see the Ladner Creek Trestle is one of my favorites in BC. The Trestle is part of the old abandoned Kettle Valley Railway which you can find scattered remains of in several areas around BC. The hike itself isn’t too long, but it has some challenging components and best of all, you are rewarded with the most gorgeous views of the trestle, and the stream flowing a long way below you. It is a great day trip from Vancouver, especially when you stop at Home Restaurant in Hope for some pie on the way home!
Over the weekend, I had my very first tubing experience and it was my favorite activity of the whole summer! For those of you who have never been tubing down a river, I highly recommend heading to Elora Gorge Park and enjoying what is left of this weather before winter rolls back around.
The first stop on the journey after leaving Australia was Honolulu, Hawaii. It is an ultimate destination for both relaxation and adventure! It should also be noted that we found it to be the perfect halfway point between Australia and North America for those looking to avoid the long haul flight. Here are some of the best things to do if you’re visiting Oahu.
Montreal is a beautiful city, full of culture and history (375 years to be exact!). We recently spent the weekend and these were some of our highlights.
