Traveling Swiss Alps

Destination: Top of Europe
On our summer holidays several years ago, during our stay in Basel Switzerland, we spent one day visiting Switzerland’s most popular (and expensive) mountain railway excursion to the top of the Europe. The Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe is the highlight of any Swiss holiday. The highest railway station in Europe is located 3,454 metres above sea level. The visitors gain access to a high-Alpine wonderland of ice, snow and rock, which they can admire from the viewing platforms on the Aletsch Glacier or in the Ice Palace.

Rocky Mountains as a postcard feature
Yukon’s Dempster Highway, Cape Breton’s Cabot Trail, B.C.’s Duffey Lake Road: for Canadian motorcyclists, these are essential rides, requisite travel stickers on well-worn panniers.

The Great Lake Gateway
It’s 6 a.m. and our family is stranded, castaways on a remote and rocky shore of Mara Lake, in B.C.’s Shuswap region. Our houseboat has no power. Neither the engine nor the generator will turn over. The radio is dead. There’s really only one thing to do: go golfing.

New legislature ‘Capital Plaza’ is halfway to succeeding
The gorgeous new fountains on the massive new ‘Capital Plaza’ before the Legislature building started flowing at 7 a.m. on Canada Day. They represent an exclamation mark on a costly beautification and redevelopment project.
