Born in Vancouver and having spent her entire life on the coast or in the mountains, Sam is a true 'west coaster.
' Her career in travel began with working at a ski hill, then later as a scuba instructor which led her to a Bachelors of Tourism Management.
After spending a summer traveling across Canada from Vancouver to Newfoundland in her truck, Sam chose to specialize in Canada so that she can share this incredible country with others.
What is your favorite place in Canada?
Newfoundland is a world of its own, brimming with unique experiences unlike anywhere else. St. John’s was my favorite place – walking along the Signal Hill Trail, then sitting to watch the whales along the coast line, and completing the perfect day with a pint at a local pub on Battery Street.
What is your best travel memory in Canada?
Driving Highway 430 north in Newfoundland, through Gros Morne National Park (home to the largest concentration of moose in the world) up to L’anse Aux Meadows (the first Viking landing in Canada) while listening to Great Big Sea (a fantastic Newfoundland based band). We counted 12 moose in one afternoon and made memories to last a lifetime.
What one thing in Canada should you experience at least once in your life?
The West coast of British Columbia by plane is a must do! Whether it’s a float plane flight between Victoria to Vancouver, or a small plane trip up the coast to Port Hardy, the coast is simply awe-inspiring. Looking down on the islands and coastal mountain range is a beautiful experience. It’s also recognized as a Signature Canadian Experience.
