We’re almost a week into the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, and a lot of the pre-game jitters and anxiety seem to have dissipated in favour of excitement and anticipation. Here in Canada, it’s been pretty cool to wake up in the morning and see how our athletes fared while we slept (curse you, nine-hour time difference)
Europe's northern frontier
Tucked away at the top of Scandinavia on the northern edge of Europe, it's easy to forget that Norway's even there. But for those who've been, this majestic land of fjords and mountains is utterly unforgettable. The jaw-dropping landscapes crisscrossed by lazy streams and raging rapids lure adventure-seekers in with promises of outdoor fun, and the relaxed cities reward those who come with sophisticated nightlife and warm hospitality. Visit once and remember forever.
