Pictured left to right: Kim Gillow, Claire Burbank, Mary Balon, Terry Hardie.

Kim Gillow and Mary Balon, of Cedar Springs, met Claire Burbank and Terry Hardie, of Jacksonville, Florida, in Seattle to start a week-long adventure in the Canadian Rockies. They travelled by train to Vancouver then took the Canadian ViaRail overnight to Jasper, Alberta. They awoke to 6 inches of snow in the mountains. After a stop in Jasper to purchase boots and coats, they spent the next five days roaming the area, including a stay at Sunwapta Falls and a visit to the Columbia Ice Fields. The scenery was breathtaking, the food delicious and the people were warm and welcoming, they said.

Thank you, Kim and Mary, for taking us with you to the Canadian Rockies!

The Post travels to New Zealand

Karol (Rogalewski) Niederer and her husband, Tom, went to New Zealand in June 2017, where it was wintertime. This photo was taken at Te Anau Lake, where a boat cruise takes you to the glowworm caves. Glowworm caves are only found in Australia and New Zealand. The worms glow to attract prey and mates.

Tom and Karol toured the south island for about three weeks. It was a once in a lifetime experience with the snowcapped mountains, glaciers, rain forest, oceans, and wildlife.

Karol grew up in Cedar Springs and has taught at the New Beginnings High School for the past 30 years. New Beginnings is the alternative high school for Cedar Springs Public Schools. Traveling adds experience she can share with her students.

Thank you to Karol and Tom for taking us with you!

The Post travels to Italy

The Post recently traveled to the Tuscany region of Italy, with Steve and Judy Reed, of Cedar Springs.

The couple flew into Milan and then stayed in Montecatini and visited several cities and villages throughout the region. They took one day and explored the ancient walled city of Lucca and visited the town of Pisa, where they saw the Leaning Tower of Pisa and other attractions. Another day they drove to the Chianti region, where Chianti wines are made and visited the town of Greve and tried the area’s wine and olive oils. They also took the train to Florence, where they visited the Uffizi Gallery and saw many works of art from well-known Renaissance artists, including Leonardo DaVinci, Michaelangelo, Botticelli, Caraveggio, and others. Towards the end of the week they took the funiculare (cable car) to the top of Montecatini Alto, a mountaintop village that sits high above Montecatini Terme (where they stayed). On their way back to Milan, they visited the city of Parma, the home of Parmesan cheese and Parma ham (prosciutto).

Besides visiting the ancient towns and villages, the Reeds also loved trying the different types of dishes at the many pizzerias and Italian restaurants in the region, especially the trattorias (family-owned restaurants).

“We had a great time,” they said. “The people were nice, the food was excellent, and it was amazing to see many of the buildings and artifacts from a time in history that we’ve only read about.”

Thank you to the Reeds for taking us with you!
