The Chinatown Storytelling Centre opened in Nov. 2021 in Vancouver.

Going down in historical past

The oldest construction in Vancouver Chinatown, the historic Wing Sang making at 51 East Pender St., will grow to be the everlasting property of a new landmark: the Chinese Canadian Museum, envisioned to open in 2023. For now, you can verify out its non permanent exhibitions, which includes the not long ago opened “First Actions: Chinese Canadian Journeys in Victoria,” located in Victoria Chinatown’s Lover Tan Alley. Also new is Vancouver’s Chinatown Storytelling Centre, opened in November as a cultural house that zooms in on the heritage of the neighbourhood and the activities of early Chinese Canadian immigrants.

Land of water and ice

Every single spring, the edges of glaciers in Greenland crack off, floating down to Newfoundland and Labrador in the sort of 10,000-year-old icebergs. If you are hoping to location nature’s frozen sculptures, the key time is from about May to June. You can cruise the waters about the islands of Twillingate, N.L. — which claims the title of the world’s iceberg money — on boat journeys with Iceberg Person Tours and Iceberg Quest. If you time your vacation with any luck, you could also go scouting for whales while viewing for bergs.
