Mga paglalakbay ng isang Bagong Canadian: Mula sa Vancouver sa Halifax sa pamamagitan ng Train - gamit ang Cultural Pass Access

Isinumite ng sa Hulyo 24, 2013 – 10:06 pmWalang mga Puna

Aboard the Via Rail train from Vancouver to JasperIbig kailanman kumain ka umut-ot isang madre ng? Walk on a glac­i­er? Galugarin ang isang ng mga lunsod o bayan nation­al park?

Mayroon kang Sam-pled shmoo torte? Taste-test­ed bagels or per­o­gies? Snacked on Kouign-Amann?

Have you gone about your dai­ly busi­ness — as if you were an Acadian in the 1700s?

Nakita mo ba ang libingan ng Louis Riel? Dipped your toes in the surf of the world’s high­est tide?

Have you con­sid­ered how abo­rig­i­nal artists per­ceived the explor­ers who arrived on their land?

…explored a neigh­bor­hood muse­um — in a for­mer pub­lic bath­house?

…lis­tened to sto­ries of immi­grants as they came to start life in a new coun­try?

I’ve recent­ly had the chance to do all these things, at higit pa.

Lahat dito sa Canada.

My Cross-Canada Rail Adventure
Starting my cross-Canada train adventure at Vancouver's Via Rail station

I’m just back from a great adven­ture — an epic cross-Canada train trip.

I spent a month trav-el-Pina sa buong Canada sa Via Rail Vancouver mula sa Halifax with numer­ous stops along the way.

As a new Canadian myself — my fam­i­ly and I became Canadian cit­i­zens last year — I want­ed to explore some of Canada’s icon­ic, don't-Miss mga lugar, mula sa Rocky Mountains sa Atlantic Coast.

But I also want to fol­low, at ibahagi ang, Canada’s mul­ti­cul­tur­al sto­ry, learn­ing more about oth­er new­com­ers, nakalipas at kasalukuyang mga.

Ang Cultural Pass Access

Ako ay makakapag-tumagal ito paglalakbay, sa bahagi, dahil sa isang excel-ipinahiram pro-gramo na makatulong-magagawang libre sa mga bagong Canadian cit-i-zens: ang Cultural Access Pass. Sponsored by the non-prof­it Institute para sa Canadian Citizenship, ang Cultural Pass Access ay mabuti para sa libreng admission sa higit sa 1,000 muse­ums and cul­tur­al attrac­tions across the coun­try at to all of Canada’s nation­al parks and his­toric sites.

The pass also gives new cit­i­zens a50 per­cent dis­count off a Via Rail trip, and I was excit­ed to learn that you can apply the pass to an already dis­count­ed fare. That’s right — when Via Rail announced a 50-per­cent-off sale, I was able to use my Cultural Access Pass for an extra dis­count.

If you’re a new cit­i­zen, ito ay ang cheapest na paraan makikita mo kailanman mahanap upang gawin ang mga tren sa buong Canada! Salamat sa pass, masyado, my admis­sion to the nation­al parks, kanyang-toric site, and most of the muse­ums I vis­it­ed — from Jasper to Winnipeg, Toronto sa Montreal, Moncton to Halifax — did­n’t cost me any­thing.

Via Rail train departures, Union Station, Toronto, OntarioLahat ng sakay!

Sa paglipas ng com-Pina-linggo, I’ll be post­ing sto­ries about my new Canadian’s cross-coun­try rail adven­ture. I hope you’ll join me on my trav­els.

And I’ll be sure to tell you all about those nun’s farts.
