Travel Croatia

Source: WestWorld, By: Craille Maguire Gillies

The ultimate Eastern Europe Tour: Hungary, Croatia, Montenegro and Slovenia on a Tour bus.
We are supposed to catch a ferry. It is mid-morning and our bus is rolling through the highways and side roads of Hungary, on our way to Croatia. The landscape is green and hilly and there is a brilliant sun overhead – the kind that makes you sleepy. Our plan is to hop the six-minute boat ride across the narrow part of Balaton Lake, the largest lake in Central Europe and a popular summer resort spot, and then make our way to Zagreb, the Croatian capital.

REV UP FOR SPRING CYCLING
The good news is that officially we are already in spring. The not so good news is that this is Alberta and there’s still cold weather ahead.

World Travel

By: ALEX CREVAR

THE Croatian capital is in the midst of an identity crisis. Geographically, Croatia is indisputably part of the Balkan Peninsula, but call a chic Zagrebian Balkan and prepare to get an earful.

East Cape road – “The real Baja”
The East Cape of Baja is an area of white sand beaches with warm, crystal clear waters that make for excellent diving, some of the world’s best sport fishing, world class windsurfing and kite boarding. The area is home to some beautiful resorts, a living coral reef and mile after mile of exceptionally beautiful, and sometimes, well hidden beaches.

Edmonton heritage

By: Lawrence Herzog

From no bridges to five river crossings
In the first dozen years of the 20th century, Edmonton went from no bridges to five river crossings. Those five bridges, opened between 1900 and 1913, were to serve the growing city without any additions for nearly the next 50 years.

Pro Tips: Tom Zirbel on Training Indoors
Training indoors… Sadly for most cyclists it’s a necessary evil this time of year. But indoor trainer time doesn’t have to be a mind-numbing, soul-crushing experience. Indeed, riding the trainer can actually be a great way to get some serious on-bike work done in a relatively short amount of time. And hey, you can catch up on your favorite reality TV shows. Keeping Up With The Kardashians, anyone?

San Jose del Cabo – La Paz by car
During our stay in San Jose del Cabo we rented a car with the idea to make one day trips to Todos Santos, Cabo San Lucas and La Paz. So, after we already completed our trips to Cabo San Lucas and Todos Santos, early in the morning on Thursday, we left San Jose del Cabo and went towards Los Barriles and La Paz on Mexico Hwy 1.
