The 48hr train ride (Rocky Mountaineer) from Vancouver to Banff is awsome! (coming soon on QMLive!) There is a half way stop in Kamloops, the journey resumes the next day and the scenery along the way is simply majestic. A world class ride. The plexy dome of the upper level (Gold Leaf Service) offers 360º degree views and an unobstructed glance at the Rockies’ lofty granite peaks. An occasional black bear emerges from the underbrush, or a bald head eagle glides overhead. many deer dear were spotted along he way. Great food is served on board.
Once in Banff (Overnight) and the next morning a 3hr Pullman ride takes you to the Bugaboo Lodge’ Heli pad …up and away we go. (Coming soon on QMLive!)

The Fuego volcano had been rumbling all day. Come dusk the gushes of lava were exploding, incandescent against the azur sky. Come night the show was simply spectacular. We drove to the foothills and took this footage, mesmerized by this privileged fiery spectacle. A few weeks before the Guatemala Philharmonic Orchestra had played in Antigua’s central plaza, as a back drop, the cathedral mystically illuminated. Bringing the music and the volcano together seemed fitting to honor this rare and grand spectacle.

Check out these terrific bags, the kind you can keep forever, ones that transcend fashion and feel more like objects than apparel. The tweed and plaid are old Maya blankets on the verge of extinction, collected in remote highland villages. This makes each bag unique. Beautifully crafted with genuine high quality leather and stitched to perfection. Ethnicity elevated to urban elegance, a nice twist!
