“Last weekend, we took a couple of students on a scenic trip of the Rockies featuring the snow-caked sceneries of Mt. Revelstoke, Glacier, Yoho and Banff National Parks as well as Lake Louise and Banff with its vibrant night-life. On Sunday there was a choice available of either discovering Banff, the Banff Springs Hotel and the Hot Springs, taking skiing or snowboarding lessons on Mt. Norquay or experiencing a dog-sledding trip through the mountain forests around Banff. The weekend finished with a Karaoke party in our last overnight stay in Golden.” Christian Kunze, Germany

“Sunday morning in Vancouver we celebrated the beginning of the Chinese new year, the Lunar New Year; with a great parade where you can see dragons, dance teams and different cultural groups, community organizations and marching bands. CCEL students went together to this event and, after the parade, we had a Chinese dinner and went for a short walk in Stanley Park.” Alessia Marioncini, Italy
