Best Island in the World – Maui

For the 15th time in 22 years, Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards poll has chosen Maui as the “Best Island in the World.”

But I’ll be the judge of that … hiking Maui for the next 2wks.


I flew out of Vancouver, now my favourite airport in Canada. The new SkyTrain rail service, the Canada Line, whisks you directly downtown, connecting to harbour ferries.

Or, with one bus connection. to the Vancouver Island ferries at Tsawwassen. Superbly convenient!

The line opened August 17, 2009, fifteen weeks ahead of schedule. One of the rare things the B.C. government ever got right. Kudos.

Thanks Les and Tam for the “buddy pass” airline ticket on WestJet, my favourite airline.

  1. I agree with Dana. What are your absolute favorite things? You could even do a series: top airports, top food experiences, top gear, top scenic vistas, top beaches, top countries.
