There are only two provinces listed here, British Columbia and Newfoundland. As explained elsewhere, I have travelled a lot in Canada but not outside of BC recently and I have no new photos. Most of which you will read her is about BC, and that’s good, because British Columbia has the greatest scenery in the world and many fabulous regions to visit.
Aside from the cosmopolitan urban metropolis of Vancouver, the main attractions of the province of BC are its scenery and wildlife. Vancouver is a virtual melting pot of cultures from all over the world, mainly Asia. The last I read, there are 3,000 Chinese restaurants in the city and suburbs. You really need a good guide to see the real Vancouver. Richmond, a Chinese community near the airport, has easily the best Chinese food in the world but you’d never know it by looking at endless rows of ugly mini-malls.
It’s the mountains, coasts and lakes of BC you need to explore. Here you’ll find moose, black bears, grizzly bears, Rocky Mountain Sheep, salmon and many species of fish, more deer than you need, Orcas and humpback whales, wolves, and the list goes on. There are wilderness lodges, fishing camps, ranches, B&Bs, and too many resorts to count. Warning: British Columbia is five times the size of Texas so it may take you some time to see it all.
Newfoundland is on my Top Ten travel list of all time, and it’s a world until itself. The scenery is raw and unforgiving but the people make up for it. The joke is you should never ask a Newfie for directions, because you may never escape. They rival the Irish for storytelling and are even friendlier. Put “The Rock” right at the top of your bucket list.
