Through the eyes of Paula...

As many Canadians know, Canada is full of beautiful places from coast to coast. Cities and towns, landmarks both man-made and natural, and islands and lakes populate this wonderful country. Canada welcomes travellers from all parts of the world to visit and enjoy its amazing scenery, but all Canadians at some point in their lives should have the experience of travelling around multiple places in Canada as well. Canada has so much to offer, so narrowing down a list of Canadian destinations is difficult. Here are just five exciting and vibrant places in Canada to explore this year.

1. Fogo Island, Newfoundland: Fogo Island is Newfoundland and Labrador’s largest island, with a population of almost 3000. A large part of the landscape is the vast, untamed wilderness of rocks, crags, and rushing water. But in the middle of all that, standing in stark contrast to untouched nature, is a modern, sustainable, state-of-the-art inn. Dreamed up by Canadian business woman and Fogo Island native Zita Cobb, this luxurious inn provides a comfortable, colourful, and picturesque stay in a place with majestic views. Fogo Island allows travelers to experience a fascinating mix of old and new, rustic and sophisticated, and bargains and world-class luxury.

Through the eyes of an intern...

For the entire school year, I have been looking towards the summer as it was the glorious reward at the end of my stressful school term. Thinking about all the festivals, music, food, beaches, and the parties got my blood pumping and gave me something to look forward to during my exam period.

As I am writing this blog, I realize that half of my summer has already passed. What have I done so far? Besides starting an internship, I haven't crossed anything off of my bucket list. No festivals, no beaches, and no exciting plans. I can't be the only one out there. So what can we do to make this summer last?

Going on vacation is always fun, especially if you’re travelling to a foreign locale. However, while vacations are a great way to forget your daily stresses, the expense of travelling can often leave a bad taste in your mouth—especially if you’re being overcharged by local restaurants. However, there are ways you can still enjoy the restaurants of a new city while ensuring that paying for it won’t leave your wallet totally empty.

1. Do your research: There are many sites out there, such as tripadvisor, who offer information about the sights, attractions, and most importantly, the restaurants. Look for customer reviews to inform you on the best places to eat and save money.
2. Buy Groceries: Your meals don’t have to arrive on a silver platter. Find a local grocery store and make your own dinner. This is a great way to eat cheap if you’re travelling with a group. You’re likely to find something just as new and interesting in a grocery store as you are on a restaurant menu. 
3. Cheaper Alternatives: Any location in the world will have street food, whether it’s from a New York food truck or an Indian bazaar. And with the prevalence of chains like McDonalds, you’re likely to stumble across one of them as well. Albeit, not the healthiest meal, or as swanky as a sit-down restaurant, it is the cheapest and most affordable.

The important thing about a vacation is not to get so caught up in the expenses that you don’t enjoy it. Splurge a little, but just make sure you have enough money to get home.

You may be on your way to a tropical destination for the next two weeks, but first, you have to bear a long flight in a cramped airplane seat. Sure, an in-flight movie (if it's good) can pass a couple hours of dull flight time, but what are you going to do with the rest? Depending on your interests, and the length of your flight, there are several things you can do to keep yourself busy and stimulated on an airplane. Here are some of our own tried and tested tips for keeping busy on a long flight.

Firstly, it is important to get up and walk around during your flight. Taking a break from your cramped seating position will allow blood to properly flow through your body, reducing tension and relieving pain.  You don't want to be that person who gets up every 15 minutes, constantly disturbing those sitting around you, but getting up every so often will make sitting down for long periods of time that much easier. It will also be easier to pass the time if your legs and back don't feel like they are encased in cement.

Once you have given your legs a break, try engaging your mind a bit. If you have anything outstanding for your trip, try and get it done on the plane. Not only will it pass the time, but it will give you a chance to tie up any loose ends that you may have, allowing you to kick your feet up and relax once you get to your destination. You can also bring a book and some fun puzzle games to keep you busy. You may not get through a whole book, or finish all of the puzzles, but it will definitely help keep your mind stimulated as you pass the time.
