Fish On. That is 2 words I love to hear. I was up in Northern Manitoba at Gangler’s North Seal River Lodge. I went fishing for Northern Pike and Lake Trout. Every few minutes someone would yell out “Fish On”; This meant that someone in the boat had caught a slimy, squirmy, yummy fish on their hook.
Gangler’s is a fly in fishing, hunting and eco-tourism camp in the north-west corner of Manitoba, near the border of Nunavut and Saskatchewan. The 5,000,000 acres of barren land, 12 river system and hundreds of lakes allows guests endless outdoor opportunities. Read More >
For this adventure I became Lady Amelia Bearheart. While in Scotland I visited the magnificent Stirling Castle, about an hour outside of Glasgow. Stirling castle is arguably the most impressive and historically important castle in Scotland. Seen for miles around, its imposing position has played a hugely strategic role throughout the centuries. Once home to Scottish Royals including Mary Queen of Scots. The building has been subject to many bloody sieges and much political intrigue. Read More >
Hi there! Great Canadian Travel Bear here.
I still don’t have a name, but for now, since it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day, I am taking on the name Patty O’Lantern. I think that it’s pretty fitting. As you can see, I’m green with envy because of all the Irish people and people of Irish descent who get to celebrate on that special day. That got me to thinking about my own ancestry, so I decided to take one of those DNA tests to find out who I really am. And, guess what? I discovered that I can trace my family tree back to Ireland! Apparently genetic evidence shows that I am a descendent from the Irish Brown Bear that lived during the last ice age. I think it’s kind of crazy to know that my great-great-great-great-great-great… you get the point… grandmother bear was hanging out in a country across the ocean thousands of years ago! Now, that’s cool! Read More >
Let me introduce myself. Well, I don’t actually have a name yet (but you can enter the contest to give me a name), so let’s just call me Great Canadian Bear for now. Although I’m only a few months old, I’ve been on all sorts of amazing adventures already. You see, I am The Great Canadian Travel Group’s newest team member. It all started with an idea to have a travel companion for all adventures the consultants go on. You know, to travel by yourself is great, but sometimes you just need a little bear to cuddle.
So, when I saw the job posted on the Polar Bears Wanted website, I could bearly contain my excitement. I applied and got the job! I was sad to leave my home in Canada’s Arctic, but the move to the big city has been really interesting, with lots of new experiences!
