Best Travel Photos Of The Week: Canadians Travel By Land, Air And Camel Around The Globe

Rafid R Mahmood

The Victoria Day long weekend is here and that means there's bound to be some travelling involved over the next few days.

Of course with any long weekend, there are plenty of options when it comes to transportation. There's the tried-and-true road trip, a short flight to a nearby city or even a short jaunt... on a camel?

Yes, the theme for this week's travel photo round-up is all about transportation and there are plenty of examples thanks to some new submissions from Canadian abroad. For example, take the team of Deb and Dave who hopped on a plane to get a better view of the Flinders Ranges in South Australia.

Or how about the tale of Cailin O'Neil who ran into some locals looking to lend their camels out to visitors in the Wadi Rum of Jordan? And for travellers looking for something with a little adrenaline kick, there's always a trip on a snowmobile and a tour of the powder-lined hills in Akureyri, Iceland.

Now for those who'd rather sit home, crack up a two-four and watch fireworks this Victoria Day, know this: there's nothing wrong your decision but here's what you may be missing out on.
