What are some of your favourite travel experiences?
Laying on the hood of a car at night in the middle of the Mojave Desert marvelling at the stars, sitting on the edge of Grand Canyon watching the sun set, watching Orcas play in the Georgia Strait from the ferry, driving through petrified sand dunes in Glen Canyon, spotting the international space station glide overhead at night at the Kootenay Valley Viewpoint with my kids, walking the streets of Puerto Vallarta with the love of my life, experiencing Peggy’s Cove for the first time.
