from my travel bag

editor@dreamscapes.ca I must admit that when I think of cruising, depending on the time of year, my mind immediately drifts toward Caribbean or European—perhaps even Asian and South Pacific—destinations. Let’s face it. Cruise companies have done a fabulous job of promoting cruises that take us away from Canada. But what about the wonderful cruising opportunities that exist closer to home? Adventure Canada (adventurecanada.com) operates ships that may take you to Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Sable Island, New Brunswick, the Magdalen Islands, Saint-Pierre & Miquelon, Haida Gwaii, the Northwest Passage and the High Arctic. Another operator, One Ocean Expeditions (oneoceanexpeditions.com), also organizes cruising expeditions to our Canadian Arctic and through the Northwest Passage where ports of call may include Baffin Island, Ellesmere Island, Cornwallis Island, Devon Island and other polar destinations. On our…

the islands of tahiti

Soft rhythms of the traditional Polynesian ukulele play as smiling flight attendants distribute intoxicatingly scented tiare flowers for passengers to place in their hair. The tiare, Tahiti’s national flower, is an absolute staple to the Polynesian wardrobe. After our eight-hour flight, the cabin doors open to coconut palms swaying in the distance and the faint scent of ocean air billows through the warm island breeze. TROPICAL SPLENDOUR Heading out on our four-wheel safari buggy through the city and eventually into the woods, we join Hervé Maraetaata of Mato-Nui Excursions who entertains us with his infectious enthusiasm for The Islands of Tahiti. The scenery grows increasingly magnificent as we enter the ancient temple or crater of Tahiti known as Marae. Surrounded by waterfalls and towering mountains, we hike through the bush and cross…

where bourbon began

Sallie Ward was saucy and sassy, a brassy broad who loved nothing more than scandalizing polite society. This included once stripping down to her “birthday suit” in front of her mother-in-law during a party hosted for Boston’s upper crust. Sallie’s 1849 marriage didn’t last, but this Kentucky belle’s notoriety did. A FASCINATING HISTORY How I wish I could have met Sallie! On a visit to Georgetown’s Ward Hall, considered one of the finest Greek Revival-style mansions in the United States, Ron Bryant, Ward Hall Preservation Foundation board chair, did such a fine job bringing Sallie to life, I missed her when I left. As we toured the circa 1850s antebellum home described by a descendant as “a veritable palace, surrounded by a fairy garden,” I studied Sallie’s portrait (is that a twinkle in…

the keys: a whole different florida

The light is different here. So is the air. Even the landscapes—tropical islands surrounded by aquamarine waters—are different. KEY LARGO Key Largo offers great snorkelling and diving opportunities because the waters are startlingly clear. John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, which features over 180 square kilometres of reefs and wrecks, was the first underwater park in America. It’s also near the only underwater hotel in America, Jules Verne Lodge, only accessible by diving! And if you’d rather be on the water instead of under it, book an African Queen Canal Cruise. ISLAMORADA Islamorada is where to go to get away from it all and enjoy some of the best fishing in the country. On any given evening, end your day at one of the island’s many atmospheric waterfront restaurants. It’s also blossomed into a…
