TBEX '11 Vancouver & Whistler, BC Canada Trip

450 travel bloggers and I are all a twitter as we prepare to attend the TBEX '11 (Travel Blog Exchange Conference) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada next month. I am really excited about touring and discovering beautiful Vancouver during the conference then breathe-taking Whistler after the conference.

I discovered the  group Travel Blog Exchange on Twitter last year just before their TBEX Europe Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. As soon as registration opened this year I quickly purchased a ticket before they sold out. Kim Mance is the founder of TBEX and host of TBEX'11. She is the travel writer and editor of Galavanting and online travel magazine and web TV series.

As one of 450 travel bloggers to descend upon Vancouver to blog about tours, attractions, restaurants, and hotels. I will be giving you tips on getting the most out of Vancouver  & Whistler sightseeing. So follow my blog as I explore Vancouver & Whistler, BC. in June.

The day before the conference starts some travel bloggers and I are being sponsored on day tours of Vancouver by Tourism Vancouver. My tour choice is the North Shore Combo, Landsea Tours & Adventure. Will I be able to walk across the Capilano Suspension Bridge?

North Shore Tour
I am also the winner of the Four Reasons for Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver Contest.  My prize is a one night stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver plus dinner for two at the YEW Restaurant & Bar.

After the TBEX '11 Conference, I will be hosted by Whistler Tourism with other travel bloggers as we leave Vancouver on the thrilling Rocky Mountaineer three-hour train ride to Whistler, BC. We will experience spectacular views along the Sea to Sky corridor.

Whistler is a renown ski area with world- class resorts. It was the center stage for the 2010 World Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Whistler is special because of its pristine natural environment and untamed wilderness. Whistler received its name from the marmot a wild animal that has a shrill whistle which warns other marmots of possible danger. The marmot calls can be heard throughout the Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.
