What is your favorite place in Canada?
My favorite place in Canada is Whistler. It’s like a magical wonderland hosting one of the world’s top ski resorts, yet there's something for everyone to experience all year round. And trust me, I do go there all year round!
What is your best travel memory in Canada?
I will never forget my first journey to the Rockies! Everything I had read and heard about was true. I traveled by bus to Jasper National Park and enjoyed a week full of amazing scenery, wildlife, skiing, hiking and dining at cozy restaurants. I arrived on the most pristine day to Lake Louise, and it was a surreal 'pinch-me' moment! I could not get enough of the mountains, fresh air and wildlife and I can't wait to do it all over again, next time by rail.
What one thing in Canada should you experience at least once in your life?
Every time I've driven the Sea to Sky Highway it's like a brand-new experience and something to look forward to. The colors of the surrounding landscape with sea on one side and mountains on the other are simply breathtaking, and it looks different every time.
