- 1st it was chick lit, now it’s chick trips
What’s the difference between a chick trip and a coed jaunt? One lip gloss.
If there are two ladies and two gents on a trip, women feel compelled to take along their lip gloss and men shoulder the toughest physical jobs, says Toronto, ON’s Evelyn Hannon. Hannon is host of www.journeywoman.com, a website for women travellers that includes classifieds for all-female tours. But when women travel together without men, Hannon says, they don’t worry about things like hat head. They focus on the experience while embracing its challenges. Hence, the “chick trip.”
- A Walk on BC’s Wild Side
Every year, the villagers of Tofino and Ucluelet, on Vancouver Island’s west coast, enjoy front row seats for one of the world’s great animal migrations. In spring, more than 20,000 grey whales cruise by on their way from their winter calving lagoons in Mexico to their summer feeding grounds in the Bering Sea. En route, they pass so close to Vancouver Island they can be spotted from shore with binoculars. Most people, though, prefer to join a whale watching tour to get a closer look at these magnificent animals.

- Chilliwack: From Gold to Riverboat Tours
How many people would plan a trip to see a place too small and unimportant to be mentioned in most travel books?

Chilliwack, British Columbia, is a good example.
- Dawson City - More than Gold
Mention Dawson City, Yukon, and the first thought in many people’s minds will be the gold rush. The town no longer has fevered gold-seekers setting up camp like in the 1890s, but traces of the Klondike history still mingle with the new economy, with museums and historic buildings providing links to the past, while theatres, hiking trails, and much more provide a wide variety of activities for travellers.

- Kettle Valley Railway and Walking Trails
I’m sure Andrew McCulloch never thought his life’s work would make so many people happy. As the chief engineer of the Kettle Valley Railway Project at the turn of the century, constructing a rail line through some of the most inhospitable terrain in all of North America was a challenging and colossal undertaking in itself. McCulloch and those who worked to lay Kettle Valley track, far from home and facing considerable hardship and danger on a daily basis, may have never known this engineering marvel would become a treasured conduit for recreation and relaxation for generations of people to come.
- Natural Wonders of New Brunswick
The season to be outdoors is upon us and New Brunswick is an excellent province to explore the marvels of nature. It is a land of natural enigmas, and the Bay of Fundy, located in the southern part of the province, sets the stage and the tone, with its ability to boast the highest tides in the world. Twice a day, over ten billion tonnes of water swirl and churn into the bay, eroding away the land and creating a vibrant home for thousands of marine plants and animals. With tides rising as high as forty-five feet, and falling as low as two feet, all in the span of twenty-four hours, it is no wonder that thousands of people visit the Bay of Fundy each year.
