I recently booked flights from Vancouver to Toronto in Business Class, and before I purchased the tickets, I asked about the aircraft type. The Air Canada agent paused, checked her screen, and advised me I would fly on an A321 aircraft. No thanks. The tiny Business Class cabin on the A321 has 2×2 seats with a 12.7 cm (5 in.) recline. I asked the agent to look for an alternate flight on the same day. She found one departing thirty minutes later on a Boeing 777. This aircraft has pods with fully lie-flat seats in the Business Class cabin, and the price was comparable – it was an easy choice. Ar ..read more

After climbing into our warmest clothes, we stepped outside into the eerie quiet. The full moon pierced the darkness, lighting our path. We thought we were alone in the crisp alpine air until we encountered a lone photographer. He hunched over his tripod, with his lens pointed across the lake at the shimmering glaciers of Mt. Victoria. As we approached the boathouse to begin exploring Lake Louise by canoe, the aroma of coffee and hot chocolate welcomed us like a warm hug. A small group huddled together on the dock, and even in my semi-conscious state, their excitement was electric. After a qui ..read more

I’m counting the days until another stay at The Ranch Malibu, a luxury health and wellness retreat in California. Before my first trip, I wondered what to wear at The Ranch Malibu. I followed the suggested packing list but wondered about a few things. Is it necessary to pack two pairs of hiking shoes? Do people really wear sweatpants at dinner? Should I pack tights or shorts or both? The weather was unseasonably warm and dry during my first trip to The Ranch Malibu, perfect fall hiking weather on the California coast. I returned to The Ranch Malibu six months later, and the weather was comple ..read more
