Rocky Mountaineer Traveling Back in Time

Our send off from the Rail Station in Vancouver
Our send off from the Rail Station in Vancouver

One of the benefits of acting without expectations is that you are able to live in the present. This fall, I was able to take a break from life’s craziness to just be present in the moment. What I learned will stay with me forever.

As a devoted traveler, I am always looking for new and unique adventures. So, when I had the opportunity to immerse myself in the lush Canadian Rockies with Rocky Mountaineer, a luxury rail service with over 65 unique Canadian vacation packages, I jumped at the chance. Rocky Mountaineer is proud to be celebrating over 25 years of “life changing experiences” of scenic rail service throughout Western Canada.

Traveling at a leisurely pace of 35 mph, I anticipated my upcoming visits to Banff,Kamloops, and Calgary.

GoldLeaf from the Start - Feeling as if I had stepped back in time with the impressive blue and gold locomotive, the outstanding staff, and rich décor, it all exuded elegance. As I waited to board my train, I enjoyed a cocktail reception with music performed by a live concert pianist. From the moment you arrive at Rocky Mountaineer’s train depot until your final farewell, you are treated like royalty.

What I immediately appreciated was my new found sense of freedom. Adding to the relaxing environment was the fact that I didn’t have the stress of hauling my heavy luggage on and off of the train. Rocky Mountaineer takes every opportunity to make sure that you spend your time how you want. Upon pulling into our overnight destination, I had been given the keys to my hotel and learned that I had already been checked in! My next surprise was finding that my luggage had been magically transported ahead of time from the train to my room! Now that’s service.

Riding in Style - I was impressed by the train’s spacious interior and how comfortably I could move about the rail cars with ease. The bathrooms were even huge! An elevator was also available to lend a hand. Not only did I unwind on my vacation, I learned a few new things! When we came upon wildlife and interesting landmarks or towns, we were well informed by the staff. Have a question? Just ask! I was impressed how dedicated the staff was to delivering the answer. I learned fascinating
historical facts as well as personal stories from other passengers that I had befriended.

Oh, the Food - Dining on the train surely does not disappoint. After boarding each morning, I enjoyed a variety of breakfast items along options of a mimosa or Bloody Mary. Complimentary beverages and snacks were provided throughout the day but what I looked forward to the most were the exquisite three-course fine dining meals prepared by internationally accomplished chefs. The bi-level, glass domed dining car is ideal for panoramic views.

The highlight of my retreat took place as I raised my head just in time to witness a flock of Canadian geese who were flying so low that they seemed to graze the glass top of our train. This reminded me that the surprise of life lies in those unexpected moments.

Me Time - I spent my days as a front row spectator to the thick Canadian wilderness. One of my favorite places to relax was the train’s large outdoor viewing platform which gave breathtaking views of the forest’s lazy morning mist arising from the glacier-fed lakes. The steady humming of the locomotive and the calming breeze on my face felt as if, just for me, that time had stopped so I could take in the moment.

Rocky Mountaineer is the perfect getaway for your special occasion. Able to accommodate large groups for destination weddings, corporate events, or a family get-togethers, ask me how to reserve your own private car.

If you are ready to create your own unique story, it would be my pleasure to answer your questions and introduce you to the secret that is Rocky Mountaineer. Contact me today to plan the journey of relaxation and pampering that you deserve. Go head. No expectations. What's stopping you?

Alaska on Celebrity
Our Alaska Celebrity cruise was just a dream before we found Bonnie. We had lots of ideas, but didn't know how to make them come true on our budget. With the help of a Celebrity Cruise sale and a call from Bonnie. Our dream came true!

Alaska is truly a family opportunity to enjoy each other and learn all about mother nature! I hope the kids enjoyed the helicopter ride over the glacier.

A group of us traveled on the Rocky Mountaineer. I couldn't believe how perfect the fall colors were. Our trip was flawless.

Your trip was easy for me to recommend Mark since I did the same RM route myself. There is something about the fall weather that I knew you and your group would love!

A Moose in the road!
We weren't sure which cruise line to Alaska would be the right one for us. Bonnie recommended Holland America with a tour into the Yukon. Everything was perfect, even the moose in the road.

Wedding in Paradise
Bonnie's recommendation for our destination location to be Sandals Emerald Bay was spot on. She helped to get all of our guests booked, worked to get the best hotel contract. We were so surprised at the concessions she was able to negotiate due to our group size made our wedding so much more than we could have ever done on our own.
