What is your favorite place in Canada?

My favorite place in Canada is Vancouver and Parksville on Vancouver Island. I love Vancouver because it offers mountains, beaches and everything in between – which feels, looks, smells and tastes great! It has something to offer to everyone and is a gateway for amazing possibilities.

Tell us about a special discovery that you’ve made in Canada

My discovery in Canada is great if you are traveling with kids! Goats on the Roof & Cuckoo Trattoria in Coombs and Pacific Brimm café in Parksville are great stops on a road trip for their unique local charm. Vancouver also has some great tours to offer, like foodie tours on Granville Island and out around the city.

What is your best travel memory in Canada?

My best travel memory in Canada has to be waking up to a beach full of migrating Brant Geese on a spring morning in Parksville. These birds take a break on their way back home to Alaska, and they stop on these beaches to feed on the marine life. Some views are better felt than described in words!
