What is your favourite place in Canada?
My favorite place in Canada is Victoria, British Columbia. This was the first place I visited in Canada and I loved everything about it! Gardens, historical and architectural buildings, beaches – there's really something for everyone.
What one thing in Canada should you experience at least once in your life?
Visiting Whistler is an absolute must, regardless of the season. While it's most famous for its winter activities, there are still lots of things to do both in the summer and shoulder seasons. I really like Whistler Village where for its small boutiques and local restaurants!
What is your best travel memory in Canada?
The best travel memory I have in Canada was visiting Gold Bridge, BC. I spent my summer break in a cabin there and really enjoyed swimming in beautiful lakes and seeing the stunning starry night sky.
