Better Together

 

We live in a world of hyperconnectivity. Where nature is often experienced vicariously through a screen rather than through direct contact. Where our social lives can, and do, exist virtually. That’s why we invite you rediscover your connection to nature on The Great Trail of Canada by joining one of our new Instameets.

These free events are a great way to experience the Trail and socialize with like-minded people. The Great Trail is great because it’s for everyone, and it’s even better when it’s shared with others.

Yesterday between naps I got to go on a lovely adventure with tourismvancouverisland cityoflangford and thegreattrail. They held a lovely instameet at Sooke Hills Regional Park. We had a lovely little hike, learned about the trail systems and future expansion efforts, met lovely people and pet all the doggo’s at least twice. Good day I’d say! 😊 thank you so much for the invite. I had a great time. Many more pics to come as well as more in my story. P.s. can you see the little boy forging ahead of the group? ...

I recently had the opportunity to learn about something I never knew existed, The great trail. As the longest recreational trail in the world, The Great Trail offers a wide range of activities through a variety of landscapes, urban, rural and wilderness. They just hosted an insta meet the other day, this a shot from a section of the trail which goes through Winnipeg. ...

I always wanted to visit Vancouver after I saw it in a magazine. I fell in love with its natural beauty. In our city, there aren’t a lot of trees, rivers or natural landscapes in general. Sadly, they built the city over a lake that used to be in that area. So, we didn’t have a lot of access nature there, and it was pretty sad. We arrived today, and our host is showing us around. We love it here. The people are nice. I've travelled to China, Europe, Argentina, and other places. The most beautiful people I've met are here in Canada.⁠ /🍁\⁠ Je m’appelle Yuriko. Mon amie et moi voyageons ensemble; nous sommes de la ville de Mexico. J’ai commencé à voyager il y a 15 ans, et depuis le jour où j’ai vu des images de Vancouver dans un magazine, j’ai toujours voulu y venir. Je suis tombé amoureux de sa beauté naturelle. Dans ma ville, il n’y a pas beaucoup d’arbres, ni de rivières ou de paysages naturels. Malheureusement, ils l’ont construite sur une zone où il y avait un lac à l’époque. On a donc peu accès à la nature là-bas, ce qui est triste. Nous sommes arrivés ici aujourd’hui même, et notre hôte nous fait découvrir la région. Nous adorons l’endroit. Les gens sont gentils. J’ai voyagé en Chine, en Europe, en Argentine et ailleurs, et le pays où j’ai rencontré les gens les plus fantastiques, c’est ici, au Canada.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #clevelanddam #ExploreVancouverIsland #ExploreBC #BetterTogetherTGT #MieuxEnsembleLGS #northvancouverisland⁠ ⁠ ...

The Resurrection . . Behind the ruins of the old St. Boniface Cathedral lies a smaller, cathedral-within-a-cathedral designed by architect Étienne Gaboury. Surrounding the interior of the contemporary cathedral are stained-glass windows (also designed by Gaboury) that depict a modern interpretation of the Stations of the Cross. One final window, entitled "The Resurrection" is not visible to people facing the altar, but with clear skies at the sun in the perfect position, the image is projected on the front wall behind the altar. . This was one of our stops during our Winnipeg TheGreatTrail Instameet. . Winnipeg, Manitoba (August 7, 2019) . . #BetterTogetherTGT #MieuxEnsembleLGS #makeitgood ...
