I try to get home to New Brunswick once or twice a year to visit my dad, best friend and family friends. I’ve been away for ten years now and one thing I always look forward to checking out on a trip home is the Saint John City Market. I plot out in advance what I’m going to eat. I set aside a little money for a piece of art or jewellery. It’s one of my favourite things in Saint John.
Think you might want to rent a car or motorbike while abroad? While some countries don’t require any special permits, many will accept an international driving permit (IDP) along with your Canadian driver’s license as proof of your skills behind the wheel. They’re only available from CAA and are valid for one year. For the relatively small fee, you should really consider it as a vital part of your travel documents.
Is it possible to have fun in Sin City if you aren’t one for gambling, shopping, clubbing or pool lounging? I say yes as long as you know what to expect. Las Vegas is delightfully fake so don’t go here looking for culture but if you want to ride a roller coaster, eat great food, see a top rate show all while pretending you’re in Paris, Venice or even Luxor this is the spot.
As cliché as it might be there’s just something about Alberta that makes me want to play cowgirl. Jeans, hat, boots, big belt buckle…I want the whole deal. So of course I had to seek out a place to go on a trail ride. The experience certainly didn’t disappoint.
