I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
The most memorable part was walking over a snow wall and then sliding down an avalanche slope all in tea shirts with the sun blazing down on us, followed by a sighting of a grizzly bear. (more)Ian Halliwell

Yes - very much so. (more)Jane Cayley
Whale-watching in the Gulf of Maine ... amongst the most memorable of other memorable moments, including Pier 21 Immigration Museum in Halifax, the ceilidh at Cavendish, and the few birds that were around.
