“Who Wants to Live in a Cave?” A Travel Adventure to Remember

“I entered through a tunnelled archway, said hello to the chickens in the coop, passed the vegetable garden and walked through a kitchen dug out of the cave walls with a surprisingly bright and shiny new fridge (where was it plugged in?). The kitchen opened up into a courtyard where I sat on a stool at a little wooden table. Off the kitchen was my private room, with saloon-style doors, a stone floor, cave walls, a tiny table, and a wash basin with a thermos of hot water. The bed was carved from rock with a huge mattress and tons of fluffy blankets.” Jody Lundrigan recounts her unforgettable experience staying in a cave in X’ian, China, which was booked through Airbnb, the increasingly popular leader for listing, discovering, and booking unique accommodations around the world. Jody says that she uses Airbnb to book her accommodations because when she travels, she…

Planning a Skiing or Snowboarding Trip? How to Prevent Costly Medical Bills

Not all winter vacations include a beach, the ocean, and rum cocktails. There are many ways to travel and enjoy activities during winter weather, too, including skiing, snowboarding, skating, and sledding. While winter activities can be exhilarating, they can also result in a whole range of injuries such as sprains, strains, dislocations, fractures, or worse. Whether you’re travelling to Colorado or France, a sport injury outside of Canada can end up costing you thousands of dollars. More than 5,600 Canadians are injured during winter sport activities every year, with skiing as the number one cause of injury, followed by snowboarding, skating, sledding, and snowmobiling.
