    • Which island to visit - Mingan

      Havre-Saint-Pierre Jul 18, 2016 at 4:10 PM

      We'll be spending a day in mid-October in Havre Saint Pierre via cruise ship. The cruise ship offers a number of excursions offered to see some of the nearby islands. I would most like to see and photograph the monoliths, I think, but other things interest me as well. The choices I have will be a trip to Ile Niapiskau to hike a trail with oddly-shaped monoliths plus flora and fauna, a trip to Petite Ile Au Marteau (with lighthouse and flora and fauna), a trip to Ile Quarry (by zodiac, I believe), and passing Ile du Fantome before landing and exploring the Quarry monoliths, and a land trip to the Cetacean Research Center (& Innu Culture) plus photo stop at Point-Paradis. They all sound good. The difference in cost and time isn't terribly different from one to another, and physically I'm able to do any of them, so I can't decide which one to take. What I love best is photography - so I'm leaning towards seeing monoliths. However, I'm also a big lighthouse lover (have seen over 400 of them) so the chance to see a lighthouse is tempting me as well. I'm not crazy about museums, although the Cetacean Research Center sounds pretty interesting.

      If anyone has opinions I'd love to hear them!

    • Wilcox Pass hike - Canadian Rockies

      Province of Alberta Jun 28, 2016 at 8:15 PM

      I would like to walk only a part of the trail for no more than an hour each way, preferably less. I understand that the beginning of the trail is uphill through a forested area which eventually opens up into a plateau with superb views of the glacier. Timewise, how far up is it to the views of the glacier? Will I be able to see the sheep as well on this short hike? Thanks.

    • freedom travel in the rockies

      Canada Jul 16, 2016 at 11:07 PM

      hi there
      Just asking for input about how my research is going for a trip in the Rockies

      i have seen that greyhound buses can take me from place to place(thanks virtual tourist Liecs),,,ie calgary, banff and (via kamloops) jasper. I am still trying to confirm if Bewleys can take me Banff to jasper by a quicker route. I have seen that public transport (ie Roam)will take me to banff gondala and a shuttle can take me to jasper sky tram. i have researched that i can get a tour from banff and jasper to go to the columbia ice field. i have seen that the Icefield is closer to jasper (from Jasper 105km.) than banff(Distance from Banff 195km)
      I would like to probably schedule in another tour at jasper, maybe lake moraine(everyone raves about it!) Looking at leaving Jasper by VIA train.
      My husband and i dont mind walking, but are not really hikers.
      Am i missing anything in my research? My main aim is to soak up the sights of the beautiful mountains and be awed by their majesty...the photos are just surreal...If anyone is familiar with the Remakables in Queenstown. the rocky mountains look every bit as good.
      I have read that often Lake Louise is iced over til mid June and we are keen to see Lake Louise beautiful colour in real life so it looks like we will be looking to come late June-August 2017.

      I have read that it will be free to visit the national parks in canada in 2017. That sounds like good news to me!
      any thoughts appreciated thanks

      Any groups in Canada that sponsor Everest trips?

      Vancouver Jul 19, 2016 at 3:17 AM

      I live in Vancouver. Travelling has been my passion ever since I can remember, but due to the fact that I’ve not been able to afford the expensive air tickets and other costs, my trips have been limited to the North American Continent. I’ve always nurtured a passion towards climbing some of the greatest Mountains in the world, especially Kilimanjaro and Mount Everest.
      But then again, as I was checking the costs for these trips I realized there’s no way in hell that I could afford any of these trips.
      I was going through some articles and blogs the other day when I came across a blog on the online portal of Freshslice Pizza ( freshslice.com/ravil-everest... ).
      Here, the CEO of the company sponsored the dreams of a man to conquer Everest itself.
      Is there any such similar person or group of people willing to sponsor a like minded person to achieve his dream of conquering the mighty mountains of the world?

      Desperately hoping for a positive reply.
      Thanks a million! :)

      Hey there!

      My two sisters and I are planning a trip to Winnipeg over our winter break. We are considering being there over New Year's Eve, but we are trying to decide if going for the NYE festivities would outweigh the possibility that some of the attractions we want to go to (mostly museums) may not be open. What kind of stuff goes on over New Year's Eve? What are your opinions?

Of course, we will need to rent a hotel room. I'm 19 years old, however, he's 17. Is it possible for us to rent a hotel room together, even though he is under 18? I know around where I live, or in my home town actually, if there's someone under 18 in the room we can both be thrown out. Is it the same in Winnipeg? I really hope not...

      Question about the Mint

      by Karlie85 Online Now Mar 15, 2010 at 1:26 PM

      Me and my husband are going to Manitoba for 2 nights in April for a family event.

      We have a little bit of time to spare, so we're going to check out the Mint. We've booked a tour at 11:30am, which is pretty much the only time we can do it.
      I was looking at some reviews online, just for fun, and I came across one that said that the production staff all go on lunch right around 11:30am, so the machines aren't/might not be running at that time. It's weird, the person specifically said not to take the 11:30am tour.

      I was just wondering if this is true or not?? Would everyone go at the same time? I really want to be able to see the machines in action!

      Thanks.

I can handle the cold, but what is the quality of life really like. Is there a lot of rational tension between the native and non-native population. Downtown did seem a bit bleak with a disenfranchised, drunks hanging around. Although Calgary has its share of the same problem (maybe less visible).
