If you think travel is all about eating banana pancakes and lying by the beach, then you're very mistaken. Travel is all about stretching yourself in ways you wouldn't each day. What's an adventure you've always had on your bucket list? Maybe it's summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro or sailing across the Caspian Sea -- whatever it is, it will be sure to add some 'oomph' to the 'additional interests' section of your résumé.

We've all heard of the 7 Wonders of the World. And the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. And the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. Sadly, Canada is represented in these famous lists only by the Northern Lights, which Greenland expects us to share. It's time for a list for the rest of us.

Tips For Beating Homesickness While Travelling

Steffani Cameron | Posted 09.15.2016 | Canada Travel
Steffani Cameron

Travelling is like being suspended above a world that doesn't need us to function. We're irrelevant. Despite how amazing travel is, that isolated irrelevance can gnaw at us. So it's important to remember everything ends, even travel. Few ever experience these prolonged journeys. Don't let homesickness or isolation spoil your adventure.

My Copy Of 'Lost Horizon' Is Starting To Show Signs Of Wear And Tear

I first read Lost Horizon back in grade school. Don't make me tell you how long ago that was. In those days, we were given a required reading list at the very beginning of the school year. And each time we finished a book we had to hand in a review. All the books were available at the school library.

I prepared for this trip months before, but not in the way I should have. With the recent bombings and terrorist activity in the countries I was about to visit, it seemed we couldn't go a month without an attack in Europe making headlines in Canada. This put me and my husband on high tourist safety alert.

Just because you're planning a big trip, doesn't mean it has to leave a big hole in your wallet. Although summer tends to be an ideal travel time for most people, especially given the lengthy school break, slightly tweaking travel dates can end up saving you big in the long run.

How To Plan A Wedding In Italy

Sara Graham

My partner of almost five years and I are planning a wedding celebration in Italy. Not because I am chasing the aforementioned goal, and not because we want to be fancy, but because half the guest list is already there. So there's my Mario, who is, as you may have guessed, very Italian. For many, this will be a destination wedding and a chance to experience Italy. That said, the biggest challenge presents itself. With all the venue options under the Tuscan sun, how the heck does a girl choose?

Exploring San Francisco's Best Museums

Amanda Blakley | Posted 09.14.2016 | Canada Travel
Amanda Blakley

San Francisco seems big -- but I soon realized that her size (surprisingly only 7 square miles), has little to do with the grandeur you feel while visiting, but everything to do with the big hearts and open minds of the San Franciscans themselves. Much has been written of her culinary and cocktail culture, her nature and leisure pursuits, but it is also one of the museum capitals of the United States.

Consumers shop for deals and like to have a variety of options to choose from, with the goal of saving money without sacrificing quality. As a parent, I would love the option of picking cheap flights at reasonable times at an affordable price; there's nothing worse than having to drag your family to the airport to catch a red-eye or a 5 a.m. flight.
