Inconnu Lodge – Serenity in The Yukon

Arriving at accommodation in the private Beaver float plane of the lodge sets the tone for this remote getaway. Slap bang in the middle of the wilderness in the North West Territories, of the Yukon, just getting to Inconnu Lodge is an adventure. A nine-hour drive from Whitehorse along the Canol Heritage Trail to the Kluane airfield on the banks …

Tales from the Road – The Yukon

It wasn’t until the city of Whitehorse had long disappeared from the rear-view mirror and miles of pine tree lined open road stretched out before the vehicle that The Yukon began to feel real. Whitehorse had been a fleeting layover, having arrived late the night before and, the following morning, with time against me enjoyed a small mountain of pancakes and …

My Top Travel Experiences of 2014

As the year comes to an end, it’s traditional to review the year, and share the best moments. I’ve often been accused of being premature (don’t ask), so it’s possibly appropriate that I jump the gun, and recall a few memories which made 2014 an especially good year.

A Culture of Hospitality at Ksan Historical Village and Museum

After taking a short detour to see the Totems of Kitwanga, and several unscheduled photographic pauses along the way, the drive from Smithers to Prince Rupert was taking slightly longer than planned.

Postcards from the Totems of Kitwanga, Canada

Kitwanga, near the Hazeltons, in British Columbia, Canada, may not be actually described as nowhere, but the beauty of travelling is that often the unexpected is found some miles from anywhere. Driving is an especially great way to make discoveries, and one reason roadtrips are so popular, there are usually dozens of surprises found right at the roadside. The conundrum for …

Epic Journeys; Coast to Coast, Canada with Via Rail

The term ‘epic journey’ is probably bandied about too often, but travelling from Halifax on the Atlantic coast of Canada to Vancouver on the Pacific shoreline is justifiably considered an epic traverse. Travelling by train with the major Canadian railway Via Rail only adds to this sense of a special journey, it is one which even many Canadians have never …

Postcards from Yoga on the Hill, Ottawa

Even before setting foot in Halifax on the Atlantic coast of Canada, it was obvious the next six weeks travelling to Vancouver would provide many memories, and dozens of stories to share. Meeting inspiring, passionate people, learning about First Nation culture, and legends, discovering fantastic initiatives, that are bringing the culture alive for the purposes of aboriginal tourism, all left indelible …
