Travel Diaries: Discover the World

In Travel by Continental StaffLeave a Comment

In our ever growing collection of Travel Guides and Country Profiles, we’ve journeyed far and wide, uncovering history, culture, and the world’s best destinations. It’s important however to not lose sight of the personal side of travel. Travelling can bring people together, elicit the strongest of emotions, and render us speechless – sometimes all at once.

To try to put this into words, we have a collection of Travel Diaries – first person accounts of a trip. Walk with us as we overcome obstacles, try new things, and experience the world in radically different ways!

Alone in Alquézar

Travelling alone lets you see the world in a completely different light. While not for everyone, it can be quite the experience! Follow along as our intrepid traveller journeys to Spain by himself HERE.

Remembrance at Vimy

Relive a journey of history, remembrance, Canadian nationalism, and friendship as we pay a visit to the Vimy Ridge memorial in northern France. As a marker of one of the most important events in Canadian history, it ends up being quite a trip! Step back in time HERE.
