Tours and Travel Conferences

It is conference time of year for me, and tomorrow I will be heading off to a family travel conference. It is a unique conference because it is small and just for family travel writers.

I’ve visited the Canadian side of the Falls many times and I’m excited to see things from the the south side. It’s sure to be...

Things you should know about New York City

I visited New York City for the first time last week. I am a small town girl and I will always prefer the quiet life to the busy city, but it is fun to visit the big city once in awhile.

I would never in a million years drive in New York City, and I would rather not ever be in a shuttle bus there again. It is expensive to eat in their restaurants...

The survey, conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Expedia.ca, provides an analysis of behaviour and preferences of more than 8,000 adults in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia in a total of 21 countries.
