Travel CEO Matt Keezer’s Guide To Canada’s Best Universities

Canada is home to some of North America’s most prestigious universities. While all schools have specialities, there are few that receive nearly universal acclaim for their diverse and exceptional programs. In order to breakdown a list of Canada’s best academic institutions, I consulted with Momentum Ventures CEO Matt Keezer.

JustFly’s Canadian travel dreams come true with the Hyperloop

For those who are unaware, Canada is a rather large country (second biggest in the world, in fact), and despite a travellers best efforts seeing the entire country in a week is pretty much difficult (but realistically, not impossible if you decide not to sleep and fly everywhere). But things are about to change in the Great White North with the (hopeful) introduction of the Hyperloop. JustFly reviews what the installation of this ultra-high speed train could mean for Canadians and travellers alike.

Travel Writers’ Secrets: Top Newfoundland Travel Tips

Fasten your seatbelts! This summer, we took an Epic Canadian Road Trip, driving from our home in Kalamazoo, Michigan all the way out to St. John’s, Newfoundland (yes, a ferry was involved). Why? Well, I’m the co-founder of Writing Walking Women, and we chose St. John’s as the site of our conference this year – MUCH more on that to come!

Nestled just off Stratford’s main square is an artist’s cottage. It is a muted yellow with deep chocolate accents; a white portico with columns entices you in off the street. Enter through the small English cottage garden, past a sign that shows that, indeed, this is an artist’s cottage.

If there's one thing I know well, it's the deliciousness of dumplings. Thanks to my husband's love for them, I have tasted them everywhere we go. I've even become a dumpling aficionado, like him. Thinking of eating dumplings is a joy, making them is lovely, but actually eating them is divine.

Sometimes the unexpected brings the greatest joy. One of the best meals I had in St. John's, Newfoundland this summer was at Tavola. It was at a meal hosted by Destination St. John's (thank you!), and since I hadn't done any restaurant research before coming to Newfoundland, I didn't know what to expect. But as with all the meals we ate in St. John's, I was delighted and surprised by the excellent food, warm interior, and great conversation.
