Find out why Meteora must be seen to be believed
A post by Ryan
Just as “shooting stars” got their name, Meteora, roughly translated from Greek, means “suspended in the air” or “heavens above”. It is certainly not difficult to see why.
Towering over the quaint town of Kalambaka, Greece, massive, pinnacles of sandstone - carved by wind, rain, and seasonal weathering - have stood as majestic and magical sentinels for almost 60 million years.
This is Meteora, and there is no other place like it on Earth.
Athens is filled with beauty, charm, and plenty of oh la la!
When you think of European romance, you probably imagine Paris, or maybe Rome. And I don't disagree! But I think Athens should be added to that list. It's got the fantastic food and delectable desserts. It's got the incredible wine and the amazing views. And it has a charm, a prettiness, that's all it's own. It may not be a conventional choice but I think Athens needs to be on everyone's list for romantic getaways. Here are my picks for the loveliest, swoon-iest, most romantic spots in the city.
Malagash is home to some of the best unspoiled nature in Nova Scotia.
If you’re searching for an idyllic seaside retreat with a hearty dose of unspoiled Nova Scotia wilderness, you couldn't ask for better than Malagash, along Route 6 in Cumberland County. Situated on a small spit of land in the Northumberland Strait, Malagash is sandwiched between the villages of Tatamagouch and Wallace, the two major service providers in this rural area. While it is short on amenities, it is full of natural beauty and Malagash makes for a fantastic detour for anyone driving between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
Casteau, Vimy Ridge, and Arras make for an unforgettable roadtrip.
Every good travel experience contains a quest of some kind, a search for something special. When you're in southern Belgium and northern France, there's no end to the opportunities to explore with exceptional sites to discover. We started out on a quest of sorts in Belgium, paying homage to Canadians of the past, and what started out as a simple ride became one of the best roadtrips of our life.
Curious about "Pure Michigan"? Start in Midland!
The state of Michigan has been working hard to shed its outdated image as a gritty, industrial state. The gorgeous "Pure Michigan" ad campaign has really shown the state's natural resources and pristine environment in a new light and I was anxious to return to Michigan to see the kind of state displayed in the ads with my own eyes.
There's as much to see off the strip as there is on the strip.
Las Vegas is one of the most photographed cities in the world and the famous landmarks of The Strip are instantly recognizable. But Las Vegas has much more to offer than casinos and hotels and I hope my photographs capture the unique beauty of this fascinating city.
Look no further for classic Canadiana. This is what camping in Algonquin Provincial Park looks like.
Ontario's Algonquin Provincial Park may just be the most famous park in all of Canada. The humble beauty of its Canadian wilderness has enthralled visitors for centuries. Tom Thomson and The Group of Seven found tremendous inspiration here, as did Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. But for everyday guests such as myself, a weekend resident at Algonquin's Achray Campground, it just feels like home. I hope you enjoy its beauty as much as I do!
Dream of planning a trip to Ireland? You're not alone! These pictures of travel through the Emerald Isle will have you wishing every day was St. Patrick's Day - Lá Fhéile Pádraig
St. Patrick's Day was originally recognized in the 17th century to commemorate the arrival of Christianity and Saint Patrick in Ireland. Through the years, it has morphed into a celebration of the history and culture of the Emerald Isle. In honour of this festive day, here is a Irish travel photo essay containing 35 pics from Dublin, through Limerick, to the Cliffs of Moher, and back again. Every photo may be clicked on to enlarge. Enjoy!
Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhaoibh!
There's nothing like seeing the sunrise over the ancient temples of Bagan in a hot air balloon.
I try to never lose track of how fortunate I am to travel and I always remind myself how lucky I am that my work as a travel writer introduces me to extraordinary locations, experiences, and people. Never has this been more in focus than during my hot air balloon ride over the spectacular ancient temples of Bagan, Myanmar. Without a doubt it stands alone as the most incredible, breathtaking travel experience of my life and I'm so happy to share my memories with you here.
