Why Members Travel

Every week in our Member Monday features, we ask members why they think traveling is important. We all travel for different reasons, so what’s yours?

Member Karyn B.

“I choose experiences over things! Traveling with our family builds positive memories and experiences together that we don’t really get at home with all the daily distractions, electronics, friends, jobs, etc. My kids will not remember what toys they got for Christmas, or how much they loved those super-expensive shoes, but they will remember hiking over the lava and how incredibly hot it was from just a few feet away!”

Member Jackie S.

“Everyday life can take it’s toll on a person and relationships. So it’s important to travel so the soul gets a reboot, and so we can reconnect with our loved ones.”

Member Donna C.

“To me, traveling is important because we live in such a diverse world, it gives you the opportunity to see other locations and learn about other cultures which helps us understand the diverse world we live in.

Member Cleo M.

“Traveling is such a good way to refresh and decompress from all the hard work you put in year after year with your job. For us as empty nesters now, it’s like a second honeymoon!”

Aiming for the Stars

We received more than a thousand amazing Shoot for the Stars photos this year from all over the globe. And with each photo comes with a story, which you can read about on our blog!

  1. Stayed at Calabogie in October. Fantastic resort, great rooms and amenities. Nearby Ottawa offers primo sight seeing and activities year round.

    • Hi Pam,

      That’s awesome, Pam, the area is really something and Ottawa has a lot to do. Glad you were able to enjoy!
