My situation is as following. I am currently in Mexico without any sort of ski equipment at all. Back in Sweden I got a full set ski equipment. I am going to Canada, Whistler in end of January and will stay there for 2 months. I thinking of shipping my skiis, boots to Canada and use it for whole season. As finished, I could ship it all home back to Sweden.
I have googled around looking for shpping information and found DHL, UPS, TNT and SendMyBag. Problem is it seems like I have to pay a fortune to ship them back and forth. That, different to others on Internet, which seems to get away fairly cheap. How do they do it?
DHL and UPS want like $400 CAD for one way.
TNT only ships for buisness
SendMyBag only ships from UK (I could ship my bags to their office in UK then forward it)
So my question is, how the heck do I find cheap shipping back and forth of boots & skis from Sweden to Canada?
Maximum delivery time: Up to 30 days

I'm looking for a curiosity shop in Montreal. A place that might have skulls, pinned insects, strange old medical equipment, bizarre objects, weird sculptures, old books, artifacts etc. I have an uncle who's a collector from Hong Kong, he is dying to see Montreal's dark side. If you have any shop names or addresses please let me know!
Hey, I am going to Whistler this season, and will be ending season in end of April.
My situation is as following. I am currently in Mexico without any sort of ski equipment at all. Back in Sweden I got a full set ski equipment. A friend of mine is coming here to Mexico during Christmas, and when he go home I will fly to Canada. After Canada I will go back to Mexico, and wish to not travel around with my ski gear.
What I was thinking was that he could bring my ski equipment here to Mexico, I can fly with it to Canada and use it for whole season. As finished, I could ship it all home back to Sweden.
Now my questions to you guys:
Thanks by advance!
We're meeting another family over the holidays while we are both visiting in southern Ontario, and were hoping for something like a children's drop-in play space in Mississauga since it is about midway between our families. Can anyone recommend a place that can entertain our one-year-olds so the adults can visit? Thanks so much!

Hey, I'm planning on travelling to Canada in Feb 2014. Excited and nervous at the same time, first time travelling and doing it solo. Initially I plan to take in Vancouver and then see where the long winding road takes me. Should there be another traveller planning a similar route, do drop me a note! My intention is to apply for a job within a ski resort - any tips, advice and/or guidance on accommodation, job hunting et al would be greatly appreciated.

We are a family of adults, two teen boys and two little ones and planning on visiting Canada from Australia for a white christmas. We have some ideas about what we'd like to do, and we would like to stay in a cabin that has kitchen and the creature comforts to amuse the kids inside, somewhere that really embraces Christmas with lot's of decorations etc. we don't mind staying out of town so long as there is transport too and from town available. Some of the activities we thought we would like to do is hire snow mobiles, snow boarding, toboggans and ice skating. The family say they would also like to also see some wild life, it would be fun to see deer wandering around. Can anyone suggest other activities or things to see to suit young and old, and where in Canada would you suggest we go? Appreciate any help, thank you.
I have a month to kill around the BC area in January and was thinking of spending some time snow boarding in Whistler. I don't have a working visa but was hopeful on getting an under the desk job or working in a hostel for the cost of staying there or something similar. Is there anywhere where this is possible?
I am going to Whistler for two months winter! Will arrive there around 20th January and leave somewhere in the end of March.
During this time I will need some cheap accommodation! As I dont got driving license and I am going to Whistler only for the skiing, I am requiring the accommodation to be either ski in-, ski- out, or walkable distance to lift or bus station.
So the only thing I care about is really the position, I dont care if its luxury or got a hot-tub or whatever. A kitchen would be nice tho. With the position and kitchen solved, I am looking for the absolute cheapest.
What would you recommend?
Thanks by advance!
I am due to move over to Toronto in the New Year based on getting the Working Holiday Visa i applied for.
I am a 23 year old male who works in the Oil and Gas industry working a shift pattern of 1 month working and 1 month home. I have a few questions on Toronto.
1. Where is the best nightlife in Toronto?
2. Is there many soccer leagues/teams in downtown Toronto?
3. How is the weather just after the New Year in Toronto?
4. Also looking at Downtown rental property, I am aware it is very expensive but is there a better part of downtown than others to live or is the whole place decent?
Any help on these would be much appreciated.
I'm thinking about a vacation in late 2014 however I can only manage 2 weeks off work.
Is there a country you can recommend that would be fair to visit with such a short period of time?
I'm coming from Canada, so southeast Asia & Australia probably don't make the most sense due to the high travel time.
Also, as a side note, I am not looking for a destination vacation. It definitely has to be a backpack trip.
Thanks for your opinions!
I have a friend in Nain and he was interested in checking out these abandoned sites and the hopedale DEW site. I have looked all over but am not able to find directions to any of these places. Would you be able to tell me where these locations are or maybe someone he could ask in Nain?

Looking for a round trip tour/excursion from Detroit to Windsor Thanksgiving week. Can't go over in our rental car due to some regulations in place but so want to visit Canada. We'll be travelling from Florida to visit family in Michigan for that entire week and would love to find a way to take a day into the Canadian side. Thought about train but not finding any connections that would work for a day trip. Also not sure about up-to-date boat/ship info.
Can anyone tell us if it is possible to travel by train between Jasper National Park and Yellowstone Park? That is: where do we get on the train and do we have to change trains somewhere in between until arrival near to Yellowstone Park?
Who can give us advice on how to do this train journey?
all the reviews are a few yrs old. heading to LS this sat would like to have a late lunch or early dinner. where would u recommend ?
Is the Sou Wester Restaurant & gift shop a legal Canada Post office? I sent a greeting card from the counter upstairs where a woman stamped the card with the lighthouse stamp almost 6 weeks ago (September 26th) and the card still hasn't arrived at High River, Alberta.
So I'm traveling from Portland, OR to London via Vancouver and my layover times look a tad on the extreme: from 45min in Calgary, to 1:20h in Vancouver and 10/15h. I know its a long shot, but since I've never been to any of those airports, I just wanted to know how complicated it is to change flights in Vancouver (1:20h)? Are are there long customs queues even we are just transiting between flights (btw, is Canada like the US and even if you are just using it to switch flights you need to apply for a visa to do so?).
I had to layover recently in Newark and had 1:30, I made it just about in time, but there was a looooot of running and having to wait in that long exasperating line for non-resident incoming foreigners.
I would really appreciate some feedback on this!
Hi,I'm seriously thinking of visiting Toronto next March as this is the only leave i can obtain from work.I understand that month can be very cold and having possibly snow.My query is-Is it so cold that we cannot ' do the touristy ' bits ?.I am also thining of staying at the Econolodge in Downtown Toronto.However upon looking at guest reviews some state that it is located in an undesirable part.Can you shed any light on these comments ?

My wife and I are thinking of going to Whistler in February next year but have heard it is expensive. We know the cost of lift tickets, ski rentals, lodging, etc., but I cannot find anything about cost of food or other activities besides skiing. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

My husband's family is planning a family vacation for next summer when my child will be 26 months old. We have been coming up with more cons rather than pros to take him with us. What is there to do with a 2 year old in Whistler? Or is it more for kids that are a little older?
