This place is awesome!” My son happily declares as we survey the beautiful banks of the South Saskatchewan River from aboard the Prairie Lily river boat. The city of Saskatoon is weaving its spell over him. “Why did you ever leave?” At 12 years old I had little to do with my parents’ decision to move from Saskatoon, a fact my son seems to care little about. Who cares about maternal family dynamics when you can see the spray park we just splashed in near the river’s edge, or the blackboard wall painted under the Senator Sid Buckwold Bridge where […]
If the results of the recent US election have you feeling a bit apprehensive about travelling south of the border, rest assured that you do not need to leave the peaceful, politically sedate confines of Canada to experience holiday bliss.

Fun, busy, frustrating at times, and occasionally a little bit crazy—these are a few words I would use to describe our holidays as a family. There’s five of us, three under the age of seven, so noise, chaos, and energy are in abundance anytime we hit the road. I’m good with that—it’s just that season in our lives—but occasionally, just once in a super-moon, I wouldn’t mind adding a bit of ‘relaxation’ into that mix! That’s why our family trip to Manitou Springs on a cold, Saskatchewan weekend in November came as a bit of a welcome surprise! We hopped in […]
Many would call me crazy but my ideal camping trip involves eating breakfast in a tank top, biking sun-baked trails with sweat pouring down my face, and then jumping in the nearest lake to cool off. I don’t want to pack fleece sweaters with me, I don’t want to bundle up in a blanket while I sit in front of the campfire at night, and I certainly don’t want to be wearing mittens or a toque in the middle of summer. Fortunately, some of the hottest places in Canada can be found in the Southern Interior of British Columbia and […]

The CP Canada 150 Train is coming to a city near you! If you are familiar with Canadian history, you will know that the railway that linked Canada from sea to sea was a very important part of how Canada came to be. Canadian Pacific Railway wants to celebrate Canada’s big birthday this summer with a very special cross-Canada tour, the CP Canada 150 train. Like CP’s Holiday Train, the CP Heritage Train will consist of a 1958 engine pulling more than ten beautifully restored Royal Canadian Pacific heritage cars. Big names from Sir John A MacDonald and John F […]

From the grandeur of Rocky Mountains in Jasper to the salmon-filled streams of Gwaii Haanas, Canadian National Parks are natural treasures that draw visitors from around the country and around the world. This year, in honour of Canada 150, Parks Canada is offering free entry into all of these gems. It’s a wonderful offer, but with so many fantastic parks across our vast nation, choosing which park to visit can be a little overwhelming. That’s why we’ve invited you to journey with us across Canada as we highlight 13 of these fantastic Canadian National Parks—one for each province and territory. Terra Nova National […]

I went to summer camp every year as a child but we never camped as a family because my mother, not much of an “outdoor woman”, found the idea daunting. My dad borrowed a friend’s trailer and took us out once but that was the extent of my camping experience growing up. Fast forward to today, and my son goes camping at least a couple of times a month. We have a fancy new trailer and we’re committed to at least 40 nights camping this summer. My personal story aside, where do you start when you want to “get into” […]
Butte noun \ˈbyüt\ (noun) : an isolated hill or mountain with steep or precipitous sides or crevices usually having a small summit area Canada is a natural wonderland! With more miles of coastline than anywhere on the planet, grandiose mountain ranges, vast expanses of unspoiled tundra, majestic plains, and more water and rock than we know what to do with, our country is a haven of diverse and breath-taking landscape. It’s every sight-seers dream, but, even with all these visual treasures at our fingertips, there’s nothing quite as pleasing to the eye, quite as head-turning, as a really nice butte! […]
