Canada’s Hockey Shrines: FlightHub’s Guide To Canada’s Hockey Obsession

If one thing is for sure, hockey is Canada’s national obsession. While Canada has produced hockey greats like Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr, and Mark Messier, it is also home to some of the world’s most important hockey landmarks. For fans of the game, these buildings are more than bricks and mortar, they are churches. FlightHub understands this as an online travel agency from Montreal, Quebec. I asked that FlightHub review their top Canadian destinations with obvious hockey roots. With that info, I have put together three major attractions for hockey historians, amateurs and professionals alike.  Maple Leaf Gardens  The Maple Leaf Gardens was built in 1931 to be the home of their main tenant until 1999, The Toronto Maple Leafs.

Family Fun in the Sun at Christmas is Possible!

Family Fun in the Sun at Christmas is Possible!

Christmas weather in the UK is rarely, if ever, like that which is depicted on festive greeting cards. The Victorian image of virgin snow, settled in all the right places, slush-free and pure, is a genius marketing tactic that has never gone out of fashion. The reality is often less romantic: icy, bitter winds, greyness, drizzle and damp. Yet, while some people feel they need a dose of bad weather to get into the Christmas spirit, many are those who long to celebrate the season in a sun-dappled paradise, swapping woollies and television re-runs for bikinis and cooling cocktails.
