Of the thousands of visitors to Vancouver Island Cheap Cole Beasley Jersey , only a handful ever ventures to the North end of the Island. It is approximately a six hour drive from Victoria to Port Hardy. Perhaps that's why so few make the trip, and that is unfortunate. I have written five articles chronicling a journey my wife and I recently took, starting at the northernmost community, Port Hardy, and working our way to Qualicum Beach. As you move north Cheap Travis Frederick Jersey , the country gets a bit more rugged, but remains as beautiful and pristine as anyone could imagine.

Port Hardy was our first stop. The ocean views from this town are as good as it gets. Wildlife is abundant. We saw more eagles in one tree in the middle of town than we saw from Victoria to Port Hardy. We traveled through the waters north of Port Hardy to Hurst Island and the dive resort called 锟紾od's Pocket.锟? Our water taxi surfed through the curl of more than one wave as strong winds pushed us along. From near God's Pocket, we could see the Northern tip of Vancouver Island, a sight few get to see. Check out the Port Hardy article at and click on 锟紿ardy a Day Goes By锟?

Our second adventure took us into Grizzly country. This was a side trip from Telegraph Cove, just 45 minutes south of Port Hardy. Telegraph Cove is an incredible place to visit Cheap Zack Martin Jersey , just to see a community perched on docks. We went 50 miles into scenic Knight Inlet to experience the incredible Grizzly bear. It's hard to describe in words. Go to the travel magazine and click on 锟紹ear Facts锟?and read about the chase scene we witnessed.

Then we went to Quadra Island, a jewel just 10 minutes off shore from Campbell River. Some of the best kayaking on the Island is available off the shores of Quadra Island. This is a great place to take in the native culture displayed in the museum at Cape Mudge. The views of Campbell River from the western shores of Quadra Island are spectacular. Rebecca Spit Provincial Park is one of the finest on the Island. Check it out by clicking on 锟絈uadra Island - Jewel of the North锟?on the travel magazine homepage.

Then we went to Denman Island which is a great place to unwind and relax. It is primarily pastoral with lots of hiking, great beaches, and we were able to look down a cliff right into an Eagles Nest. Check out 锟紻enman is not a Speed Bump锟?

Our last stop was Qualicum Beach where we stayed at one of the finest B&B's on Vancouver Island. There are tons of things to do in Qualicum Beach and close by is one of the 锟絙est little tourist traps锟?in the world. Read about a local who was shot at least 10 times! See 锟紹ullets Over Qualicum锟?on the travel magazine.

These articles will give you a great taste of the Northern part of Vancouver Island's East Coast. Enjoy!

Zaragoza is the fifth largest city in Spain and capital of the Aragon region. It is situated in the northeast of Spain, roughly halfway between Madrid and Barcelona. The city has been relatively untouched by tourism Cheap Tyron Smith Jersey , although this is now likely to change with the recent opening of a new high-speed rail link from Madrid. Zaragoza has some notable historic monuments, including a Moorish palace and several fine churches. There are also many tapas bars, cafes and restaurants, while Zaragoza's 40,000 students help to give the city a lively feel.

The Romans founded Zaragoza around 2 Cheap Jason Witten Jersey ,000 years ago, and the city takes its name from the Roman emperor Caesar Augusta. Zaragoza was ruled by the Beni-Hud dynasty in the 11th century. Despite having a reputation as a Christian hero, the legendary El Cid was in fact a mercenary leader who fought for the Islamic Beni Huds during this time. The city is also famous for resisting Napoleonic forces during the great sieges of the early 19th century.

The majority of Zaragoza's tourist attractions, including La Lonja, El Pilar and La Seo cathedral Cheap Dez Bryant Jersey , are situated around the Plaza del Pilar. Between this large public square and the River Ebro is the huge Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Pilar. This impressive Baroque church has a large central dome surrounded by 10 smaller domes, with four tall towers in each corner. It was built to honour the Virgin of the Apostle who, according to legend, appeared before St James on this site in AD40. The basilica's interior is notable for its carvings and elaborate frescoes, with the highlight being a series of paintings by Francisco de Goya within the central dome. One of Spain's best-loved painters Cheap Demarcus Lawrence Jersey , Goya was born in 1746 in a small village just outside Zaragoza. A couple of bombs were dropped on the church during the Spanish Civil War but fortunately they failed to explode.

The Gothic cathedral of La Seo was built on the site of Islamic mosque. Its museum contains many treasures, such as paintings, tapestries and sculptures. A short distance from La Seo is the Renaissance exchange of La Lonja, constructed from thousands of small bricks. La Lonja's interior is notable its magnificent stone ornamentation. The Palacio de la Aljaferia, built during the 11th century Cheap Jaylon Smith Jersey , is located to the west of the city centre. Although it has been modified many times over the years, this Moorish palace still retains its original mosque and courtyard. The elaborately carved ceiling on the first floor contains images of the Catholic monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabella.

There are some great views of the city from the much-photographed bridge, Puente de Piedra, which spans the River Ebro. Constructed in 1813 Cheap Dak Prescott Jersey , .
