Callum Snape is an adventure travel and freelance photographer from Banff, Alberta. At least, that’s what his website says. We reckon he could well be a secret agent, who’s sole mission is to bring as much of Alberta’s beauty into the world as possible. And if that is the case, Agent Snape, mission complete.

You know those landscape that look too good to be real? The ones that make you scoff, wave your hand and say, ‘Oh stop it.’ Yeah, Alberta invented those. Not only was it shown recently that the Canadian Rockies are the best place to wait out a zombie Apocalypse (good to know), they’re full of the kind of scenery usually reserved for deodorant commercials.

Sometimes, things happen in life that make you completely lose your mind. And if one were to pen a list of preferred venues for one to lose their mind in, a library would nay be anywhere near the top.

It’s a big wide world out there, in fact so big and inviting that sometimes we forget to explore our own back yards. Intrepid’s Katy Rockett put away her passport for this holiday and felt on top of the world in her homeland…
“Though I’ve been a Canadian resident since birth, it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I actually started to take the time to explore the diverse and incredibly vast country in which I live. And what a mesmerizing journey it was!
Ever wondered firstly how you can explore Vancouver Island on a budget and secondly, do Canadian’s really play curling? Diana McDermott answered these questions and more on her day trip to Victoria, the beautiful capital of British Columbia…
“Arriving into the picturesque harbour, my boyfriend and I set off on foot to the Empress Hotel for the traditional scones and tea. Our $20 budget was not that of my parents’ when I had been on holiday there as a child some ten years earlier, so we enjoyed the scaled-down version in the downstairs cafeteria. We then visited the Royal BC Museum, where a replica of a frontier mining town was complete with a bakery wafting clove-scented smells.
