"I have been visiting Canada for over 20 years, and for me, it is the only place that perfectly combines cosmopolitan living with the picturesque rush of vast mountain peaks, lush forests and an abundance of unforgettable wildlife. As a nature enthusiast, I love the exclusivity of Sonora. Only accessible by sea or air, I have spent many days venturing through rugged woodland grizzly bear spotting, and kayaking across the serene waters of Surge Narrows Marine Park. There is no better city to complement this outdoor vibe than Vancouver, where a bike ride through the greens of Stanley Park promise views of the North Shore Mountains and the string of hidden beaches are ideal for a romantic picnic. For a taste explosion, Grandville Island is a food haven of fresh seafood, middle-eastern treasures and the best honey-dipped doughnut I have ever tasted. And, if you’re still seeking thrills, zip-lining across the Kennedy River or surfing the swells of Chesterman Beach are my picks when staying in or passing through Tofino."
