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 creating at 51 East Pender St., will turn out to be the permanent home of a new landmark: the Chinese Canadian Museum, predicted to open in 2023. For now, you can check out its momentary exhibitions, including the just lately opened “First Methods: Chinese Canadian Journeys in Victoria,” located in Victoria Chinatown’s Admirer Tan Alley. Also new is Vancouver’s Chinatown Storytelling Centre, opened in November as a cultural space that zooms in on the history of the neighbourhood and the encounters of early Chinese Canadian immigrants.

Land of drinking water and ice

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

Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan — inside designers, Tv personalities and new hoteliers — have introduced they’ll start their 22-home oceanside residence, North Star, in June. Uncover the hotel, a whole revamp of Place of See Suites, in the historic community of Louisbourg on Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
