A turtle laying eggs on the beach, a rare treat to see!

Yes, Hartwood lived up to the hype

Don't know which was better, the food or the friendly staff.

From Vancouver to Toronto on Via Rail

During my Spring Break, I took the Via Rail train from Vancouver to Toronto. This is the second time I've slept on a train. The first time was in China, where I shared a room with three other people, two of whom were smokers. It was VERY uncomfortable. On the Via Rail train, I had a one person roomette and I loved it. Here are some of the scenery highlights...

The video below shows what you can expect from the dining room, accommodations and public spaces of the train.
