      Hi guys,

      Because I've never been there I don't know what jobs are considered better. I have been offered work in the guest services area of the Fairmont as well as working for the mountain in retail.
      Just wondering if anyone had any ideas on whether Fairmont has a good reputation for being a good place to work, Ok pay etc? Just trying to weight it up against the pros of working for the mountain and getting a season pass etc.

    • Travelling from Gaspe to Bathurst in New Brunswick via Bus ?

      Gaspé Jul 6, 2015 at 1:29 PM

      Hi,
      I am travelling to Gaspe airport (YGP) from Toronto (YYZ) via Air Canada. Once I reach Gaspe I intend to travel in a rental car to New Brunswick, PEI, Cape Breton. The whole trip is around 10 days long.
      I checked with the rental car companies and the province of Quebec has per Km pricing and no kms are free.
      Hence I need to move out of Quebec and then rent a car preferably in the province of New Brunswick (Bathurst or Moncton) for the entire trip.
      Can some one please help me in this regard. How do i travel out of Gaspe via a Bus or any other means to Bathurst in New Brunswick ?
      Moreover if someone knows of any rental agency in Gaspe, QC that charges just like in the province of Ontario pls do let me know ?

    • Use of English outside of the big cities

      Quebec Jul 10, 2015 at 4:07 AM

      An American friend, who doesn't speak any French, who does a lot of travel withing Quebec as part of his job, told me that he used to run into hostility from merchants and the public in general in Quebec, outside of Montreal and Quebec City, when he'd ask questions in English. He said he learned a trick to solve the problem. When he enters a store, he starts off by saying, "Habla Espanol?" then "Sprechen sie Deutch?". While the locals typically don't speak Spanish or German, they assume that the person is not American and not an English speaking Canadian.
      Then, with a fake accent, he says "Do you speak English?". Usually the merchant is then relieved, and delighted to speak English. Apparently anti-English resentment is not really against the English language, but against Americans and Canadians who take it for granted that everyone should speak English.
      Has this worked for any of you?

      Vancouver Jun 29, 2015 at 6:24 AM

      I am taking a trip of about 4-5 weeks in July-August, with my wife. I will be driving from Florida to San Diego, Vancouver, Montreal and back to Florida. We will be tenting in Federal and State/Provincial campgrounds mostly, with a mix of motels and cabins, friends and family.

      In 1976 we did a similar trip from Montreal to San Francisco, Mexico City, Houston and back with our three children and in 1978 we did another another one again from Montreal to Los Angeles, El Paso and back. Our visiting the Northwest has been postponed until now. I have had my fair share of traveling, but most of it was done prior to the internet and its wonderful opportunities to learn and communicate.

      I would appreciate suggestions on how to publish a log of the trip while making it, what campgrounds to take, "don't miss" nearby locations and any other comments that may be applicable.

      I have posted a map to my Google Drive, but don't know how to make it available here for comments and suggestions.

      Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with me.

      What's the best way to travel across Canada?

      Canada Jun 25, 2015 at 9:10 AM

      I'm planning a cross Canada trip for the summer of 2016. We're a family of 5, with children who will be between 16 and 20 next summer. The outline of the plan is to start in Vancouver, and progress leisurely eastward over a period of 1 - 2 months. These plans are preliminary, I'm open to suggestions!

      The ideas I've had for transportation so far are:

      1. Renting an RV
      2. Renting a car and staying in motels
      3. Mixing it up between methods of transportation (planes, trains and automobiles...)

      I'd like to have the leisure to stop for a few days when we come across a nice place. I already have in mind Vancouver Island, the Rockies, one or two Great Lake beaches and Niagara. It seems an RV would be the most suitable for this requirement, but I'm open to other ideas.

      Does anyone have experience or advice that I could benefit from? This could include:

      1. Method of transportation
      2. Places we must visit

      Thanks for any help!
