Residents are being invited to come on a journey through the Canadian Rockies with Yeppoon’s Jordana Wilson in an upcoming Armchair Travel session at Yeppoon Library, after the 26-year-old spent an amazing year in Kananaskis Country.

Jordana will share all facets of this incredible part of the world with residents next Wednesday evening, July 18, over a cup of tea.

Travelling the country from October 2016 until September 2017, Jordana said she was seeking to be submerged in a completely different world, and Alberta (Provence in Western Canada) delivered.

“What drew me to Canada was the endless adventure to be had in the natural wilderness of the Canadian Rocky Mountains,” Jordana explained.

“Some of the highlights of my time there were experiencing the dramatic season changes. There's nothing quite like watching the white winter wonderland melt away into stunning colourful blooming countryside. Horse-riding through the mountains and a helicopter trip over the highest peaks in Canada were two of my other many favourites!”

Sharing her travel experiences to Siem Reap at a previous Armchair Travel presentation earlier this year, Jordana said she believed travel was mandatory to aid in our growth as human beings.

“It’s helps to open up our eyes, minds and hearts – to appreciate every culture and the unique treasures we all have to share with one another and grow,” she said.

“I am very much looking forward to sharing some of the special moments I have been lucky enough to experience in my travels to Canada through the Armchair Travel talk, and can only hope to inspire others to set out on their own journey. Armchair Travel offers an excellent opportunity for us to all share our stories and hopefully help those who are planning on setting out on their own journey!”

Cr Pat Eastwood said the free Armchair Travel series continue to gain popularity among residents in the region.

“This is a fantastic initiative in partnership with Livingstone Libraries and local residents, who take the time to share their wonderful stories of adventure to amazing places all over the world,” Cr Eastwood said.

“I encourage anybody who has an interesting, lively and passionate tale that will captivate the public, to speak to the wonderful Library staff and put your name down to participate in this fantastic series.”

Armchair Travel: Canada will be held at Yeppoon Library, Wednesday 18 July from 6pm – 7pm. For more information phone 4913 3850.
