What type of accommodation would you suggest ... one of the inns/motels or a cottage (we aren't really B & B people). If you have any recommendations that would be ideal for a couple, I would appreciate hearing from you.

      Hi there,

      I am travelling with my boyfriend to Newfoundland in mid June for for 10 days. We will be spending 4 days in St Johns and then flying to Deer Lake to hit the western side of the provide for the last 6 days. I've called a few car rental dealers for quotes and it seems that it can get quite pricey especially if requesting for unlimited milege. They quoted me $550 for 10 days, not yet including insurance. I was wondering if any one out there knows of a budget car rental dealer and whether unlimited milege is even required given that I will be flying from the eastern side of the province into the western side. Any advice/feedback would much be appreciated.

      Thanks so much!

    • How to plan a week's vacatiion to cover Vancouver, Seattle and Whistler.

      We are a family of four (boy 19 and girl 14) and will be flying from Calgary to Vancouver for a week only and would like to visit Vancouver, Seattle and Whistler. How many days in Seattle would you recommend? what about Whistler, over night stay or two nights? I was not sure if we should go straight to Seattle from Vancouver on day we arrive from Calgary. This will be our first Vancouver visit. Three years ago, we drove from Calgary to Victoria, so we want to avoid Victoria this time. Any recommendations for sightseeing in Vancouver that we can do in three or four days?

Won't have a car so walking/bussing is necessary. Would love to be in village but if it is significant savings to be a little further out that's okay. How much will a room in a 3-BR typically run me? What about a 1-BR? Or is this very hard to do?

    • Jasper Itinerary

      Jasper National Park Mar 25, 2014 at 2:01 AM

      I'm celebrating the big 60 - so I want to make this day special towards the end of June

      Planned itinerary: Hotel is in Patricia Ave Jasper

      Early trip on Parkfields Iceway - first trip out! continue to Maligine Canyon - Google puts this round trip as 56 minutes - then approx. 2 hours for Parkfields Iceway

      Then head in the opposite direction to Moose Lake, Berg Lake - OK I accept we have to come back into Jasper first as Moose Lake is in exactly the opposite direction. Google maps puts this at 54 minute drive

      We tend to leave the hotel at about 8am, arrive back by 8pm having eaten and head straight to bed - case of seeing as much as we can - we adjust itineraries on the day as some places are too far. I might be 60 but I'm super charged and have been know to wear my sons out with our previous sightseeing!!

      Evening meal: yes I want something nice but restaurant prices seem horribly expensive - could possibly take in lunch instead - thinking of Downstream Restaurant or Jasper Brewing Company - both seem to have reasonably priced food with a fairly decent selection. We can't afford to go too much upmarket as we're on a budget.

      Plan to do Lake Louise Lake Bow and others from Canmore

      Hoping someone can make my big 60 special! Thanks

      Hi,

      I'm thinking of going to a concert at Club Soda when I visit Montreal in the fall, is this venue in a safe area to be walking at night? It's near Saint-Laurent Boul & St Catherine Street, I heard this area mentioned as a bit of a red-light district in some of the warnings. I'm planning on staying about a 10-15 minutes walk from the club, is there any direction from this club that is better/worse to be walking through late at night?

      Lumsden Mar 9, 2012 at 4:57 AM

      My father Thomas 'Peter' Howard, as a young man spent a year by the Qu'appelle river growing grain on the quarter section held by his uncle Richard John Everall, so that 'Jack' could return home to Shropshire to visit his family. He sowed, cultivated and harvested the grain which he took to numbered bins by the railway line where it was picked up and taken East, and he received a cheque in due course. He was quite alone for this time, but was welcome in a neighbouring home presided over by 'Granny" Wilson who I believe was Scots. She encouraged him to do a world tour, and gave the name of relatives by marriage, Idiens in New South Wales in Australia. He did do so and kept a diary, but sadly, we have had to rely on verbal memories for his Canadian time. He passed through on his homeward journey, but broke his journey further west at Swift Current where he worked during the winter of 1929/30 for a man called Lundqist at a line camp I think. He said the 'tumbleweeds' were mustard plants.

      Mrs Everall, born Mary Ann Howard in Bishops Castle in 1863, did not linger long in the area, but if anyone has news of her, I'd be glad to know of it.

      Does any of this tally with any records at the museum or memories of an oldest inhabitant? He said that the young tended to pick up their sticks and move to more favourable places, but I see that this area like many others has gained residents in the intervening period. Someone may have a letter or a memory of the period. Anything about the Wilsons or the Everalls would be very interesting.

      Cheaper accommodations - Inns

      Saskatoon Feb 10, 2010 at 9:30 PM

      v's larger hotels.

      Anyone know about Confederation Inn, or The Westgate Inn? Both along 22nd St W & Circle Drive W
      They're definately a lot cheaper than hotels like, say, Days Inn or Country Inn & Suites.
      But is it worth it? I wouldn't be spending a lot of time there & extra comforts (found in more expensive hotels) aren't a priority. But then I don't want to stay in a dive either!
      I just want a comfy bed, a clean room, hot water and a feeling of safety.
      I'll have a car too, so distance to things won't be a problem.

      So just wondering if anyone knows of & can give an opinion on these two places.

      Much appreciated,

    • Nearly five hours to waste in Regina...what to do, what to do?

      Regina Jul 25, 2007 at 1:56 PM

      Hey there;

      I'm taking a Greyhound to Toronto, and my trip sees me stopping in Regina for nearly five hours.

      So...the good question is...what to do?

      This stopover is from 4:00pm to 8:50pm...that gives me plenty of time to spend, exploring, at least, the downtown core. What I'd probably want to find is a health club (like the YMCA) so that I can have a quick work out and shower...and maybe a quick bite to eat.

      A coffee shop with wifi access would be great, or a cyber cafe, so that I can check my email, as well. Or an arcade with DDR, so that I can expend some extra energy.

      Who knows? Even a coffee date just for the heck of it? Who's to say?

      It's all good and fun, my planned trip is for the middle of August. I haven't nailed down a date yet, but that's forthcoming.

      Thanks for reading, and thank you in advance for responding.

      Yours sincerely,

    • Nightlife in Saskatoon

      I am new to Saskatoon and would like to know if there are bars or clubs that play dance music that would be suitable for a 32 year old male. I don't want to clubs that have predominantly 19 year old women. Also any other places that you could recommend to meet people would be great.

    • Is Saskatoon a nice place to live and work?

      Hello, at present myself and my family live in the UK, however my husband has been offered a job driving trucks throughout the United States and Canada but based in Saskatoon. Obviously this is a big move. If anyone can help what are the average wages for a truck driver, do they earn good money? Is 50 to 60 thousand dollars a year a good wage out there. Also we have 3 children and I would like to know what the education standards are like out there. I apolgise for all the questions but we are trying to find out as much as we can before we make the decision to emigrate. Thanks in advance.
