Canada and The Rocky Mountains

Canada and The Rocky Mountains


I was privileged to be part of an educational to Canada, organised by Rocky Mountaineer in September this year. We flew with Air Canada on its new Boeing 777. It has two cabins - Business and Economy and offers flat beds in business class and comfortable economy seats in 3-3-3 configurations. Personal in-flight audio and video entertainment had plenty to choose from and was truly the highlight. Staff service was polite. The food, unfortunately was quite not very tasty. During our educational we have visited Calgary, Banff, lake Louise and lake Emerald, travelled on Rocky Mountaineer and had 2 nights in Vancouver.

Canada as a country impressed me with its beauty. The entire land is full of amazing mountains, forests, rivers and lakes, this made me say - wow!! - this is amazing! - how beautiful! - many times. The highlight of the trip was travelling in Gold Class on Rocky Mountaineer from Banff to Vancouver. The attentive staff, lovely meals, the scenery which takes your breath away - made this trip for me an unforgettable experience. We have inspected red, silver and Gold class coaches, and along with the explanations about each class, this has given me a great understanding of this phenomenal attraction, and I can't wait to share this knowledge with my clients. Vancouver, as well, impressed me by its beauty and convenience. Everything is so close and within easy reach - either by foot, bicycle, or by public transport. Many beautiful parks are close by, opportunities to shop are abundant as well as options for dining or visiting art galleries and other cultural centers. I can understand now why Vancouver was voted as one of the best cities to live in. The people of Canada are very hospitable, the food is nice, the wines are tasty. I am so happy I got to experience Canada for myself and am really looking forward to returning one day!
