"Relax, it's Qualicum!" I heard this many times during my visit to this small Vancouver Island community, whose population of 8,900 swells to 16,000 in the summer. They boast the dubious honour of having the highest median age of any city in Canada. But if you think that means this is a sleepy, tea-room filled community, think again.

A close friend of mine, recently returned from a trip to Nicaragua and she told me it was one of the best adventures she has ever been on. She shared with me, that it had exceeded her expectations in every way. Still not on the tourist's radar, she told me that it was fairly easy travel around, gorgeous beaches, and nice little hotels spotted throughout the country.

Canadians catch a hard time for their funny accents, overly-polite demeanors, and of course, Justin Bieber, but those who are in the know do not tease them about their food. Canadians enjoy an abundance of dishes that many of their neighbours south of the border never get to taste -- and they're missing out.

Not almost in paradise, but actually Paradise: Paradise Island in the Bahamas is conveniently off the shores of Nassau so you can catch one of the daily flights into that city's international airport and before you know it be stepping onto the sunshine-drenched sands in Paradise.

Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre

Only about 20 per cent of people who are infected with Zika actually experience any symptoms. The rest have no idea they were ever infected with it at all... Fever, rash, nausea, joint and muscle pain, headaches and redness of the eyes are all signs of a Zika infection. The only way to know for sure, though, is by getting a blood test.

While world events may have factored into Canadian's decisions to stay local, I'd like to think it had more to do with the fact that more of us are choosing to discover just how amazing this country really is. There are so many things to do in Canada and while you may think you've heard of them all, here are some that don't get the attention they deserve.

I Am Fed Up With Air Canada's Ridiculous Fees

In the fall of 2015, I planned to travel from Toronto to Vancouver and back. I booked my outbound flight with WestJet, and the return flight with Air Canada, because the timing of those flights was most convenient for me. Then an unforeseen problem arose, and I had to cancel my trip. Each airline told me I could cancel my flight, pay a penalty (I thought it was $100 in each case), then apply the credit balance to another flight, so long as I used my credit within a year. Each airline, that is, except Air Canada.

The best travel looks are made-up of comfortable yet stylish pieces that can be worn in a variety of scenarios. Simplicity is key. I designed a comfortable black dress thinking of travel. You can pair it with flip-flops for the beach or with leather sandals for dinner. Add a nice scarf and some jewelry and you have created a different look with the same dress.

Planning a vacation to an idyllic tropical destination is never a bad idea, but it's not always feasible. Often, the further you go, the more you're likely to pay, but you don't have to leave the country to get the beachside escape you're craving -- you have more than enough options right at home.

Top Tips For Travel Skincare

When travelling, the skin can become rather dehydrated. Often at times, the business, associated with travel can add stress, which also interrupts your skin's natural levels of moisture production. If flying, or spending more times outdoors, the water levels in the skin can also be robbed by recycled air and the environment (sun/ wind).

When you hear the names "Whistler-Blackcomb" or "Sunshine Village," you probably don't think about summer. June, July and August may not be the best months to throw on your snow gear and conquer the steeps, but they are the best months for action-packed thrills, sightseeing and adventuring at your favourite ski resorts.

In the Middle Ages, roveja still endured as the staple diet eaten in the form of a "puls," which is an ancient Roman-style of porridge and consumed with a savoury sauce on top. Over time roveja was forgotten. By the 1990s only a few local people remembered roveja, and some found the plants growing in gullies or near streams.

In this post-colonial era, we now look to the ancient wisdom cultures we once ignored, scorned and at worst, destroyed, for answers. The Western world is growing a seemingly unquenchable thirst for Buddhism and Yoga from the East and from the Americas, Shamanism and plant medicine.

Although we may believe ourselves to be nothing more than visitors, when it comes to infectious disease, we may play a much greater role than believed. It's why a visit to a travel doctor both before and after the trip is not only a good idea, but also may help to preserve an environment for the future.

For me, the best part of traveling is when I chat with the locals. I learn from them what life is like in the town or city. Where do they eat? What shops do they visit? It can be an amazing way to explore a new destination. I asked those very questions to locals in Victoria, and here's what they told me.
