InstaHikes, from Travel Alberta, reinvents hiking in Alberta

InstaHikes

Alberta, and particularly Rocky Mountain Alberta, is a truly breathtaking place. Johnny went last summer, and loved it (and The Post Hotel). I went three summers ago, played golf, and loved it (and the golf).

Toronto Airport

New NEXUS Machines, New Rules I’m a big proponent of NEXUS for frequent travelers to Canada, and so I was excited to see on Friday that they’ve rolled out new NEXUS machines at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport—as part of a larger, more complete rollout that’s currently underway.
