In our feature article titled “Beyond the Podium,” we look back through the Olympic years to highlight those moments where sports and politics have collided. But our Olympic journey doesn’t end there. We’re also shining a bright, golden spotlight on PyeongChang, South Korea, host of the 2018 Winter Games.

Also on our travel log is a trip to the Alberta Aviation Museum. If you’ve never been, add it to your winter to-do list. We certainly came away inspired after our visit to capture this month’s photo essay. If a road trip is more your speed, we’ve got that covered, too. From a giant Easter egg in Vegreville, Alberta, to a signpost forest in Watson Lake, Yukon, our list of roadside attractions is sure to get your motor running. As for what’s around the rest of this issue’s corners, that’s for you to discover.

Enjoy the ride!
