I live in Ottawa but my heart is probably stll in BC where I lived, worked, played, etc for many, many years. If I travel for work, I usually tack on some play - usually mountaineering or backcountry skiing or trail running - onto the trip. When I travel with our family - 2 pre-schoolers! - it is full on kids fun and chaos. Always keen to get connected to the local community and avoid boring and expensive hotels.
