1. The Best View of Moraine Lake

    Less than ten miles from beautiful Lake Louise in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies is the even more spectacular Moraine Lake. Situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, it is one of the most famous and most photographed views in all of Canada. (more…)

  2. The Best View of Lake Louise – Alberta, Canada

    On our recent trip to the Canadian Rockies, I made it my goal to get a photograph of one of the most iconic views of Lake Louise. The aerial view of the lake with the Fairmont Chateau hotel in the background is taken from the viewing platform at the end of the Fairview Lookout hiking trail. (more…)

  3. The McBarge – Vancouver, Canada

    One night in Jasper whilst on holiday recently I was scrolling through Facebook and saw that George Takei had posted a link to a story about an abandoned floating McDonald’s in Vancouver. Normally I would just read the story and maybe take a mental note for future reference but as we were on a road trip and were going to be in Vancouver two days later I knew I would have to find out where it was and go and see it for myself.

  4. Disney Wonder to Alaska: Day Eight – Vancouver

    As is normal when I know I have to wake up early in the morning, I barely slept on our last night of the cruise. I had set my alarm clock for 5.30am as I wanted to be outside on deck as we sailed into Vancouver. After getting dressed I checked the map on the television to see where the ship currently was and then headed up to Deck 10 with my cameras where you could already see Vancouver in the distance.

  5. Disney Wonder to Alaska: Day Four – Skagway

    Today was the only day that we set our alarm clocks to wake up nice and early. The Disney Wonder was due to dock in Skagway at 7am and we wanted to be off the ship as early as possible to start our day of sightseeing. We had nearly finished getting ready for the day as we started to arrive in Skagway around 7am. (more…)

  6. Renting a Car in Skagway, Alaska

    After booking our Disney Wonder cruise to Alaska, we immediately started looking into what we could do in each port. Skagway seemed to be the port with the most to see, however when looking up excursions I was horrified by the hideously expensive (and quite frankly rip-off) prices that were being charged. The fact that some excursions cost several hundred dollars a person was disgusting – there had to be a better way…and there was! (more…)

  7. Disney Wonder to Alaska: Day One – Vancouver

    We had started our trip on the Friday afternoon when we left London and headed to Los Angeles. Our flight was great and sitting in Upper Class definitely made the journey a lot more comfortable. The only downside was we landed just after the Air China flight which meant despite being first off the aircraft, we queued at immigration for nearly an hour and a half. (more…)
