Taking flight: Falconry at Wye Marsh

Hawks may not be that rare in Ontario, but few people see more than just a glimpse of them, and even fewer will have the opportunity to see these beautiful birds up close, or watch as one gracefully soars through the air. For those interested in falconry though the Wye Marsh is giving hopeful enthusiasts some personal time with a trainer and his birds as part of their new “Introduction to Falconry” workshops that are currently being offered on select Saturdays (including Saturday, October 13th, 2007), and it’s an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed.

Exploring historic Scotland

Scotland has always held a special fascination for me – from the castles, culture, scenery, and even the food, I’ve wanted to explore the land that one of my ancestor’s once called home.

Out of all of them, if you’re looking for something special, the one that really stands out though is the Lord Nelson Hotel.

Travel File Review: Auberge Saint-Antoine, Québec City

Few cities in Canada offer the spectacle, or even the culture, that lives and breaths in Québec City. Throughout 2005 I’ve managed to travel across the country, with stops in Vancouver, Banff, Winnipeg, around Ontario, and throughout parts of New Brunswick and even into Prince Edward Island. Compared to the raw energy and vibrance in Québec City though, I can’t think of a place I want to revist and explore more.
