What Services Can You Offer Adgabber Members?
I’m looking for partners to help promote my travel websites to the South Pacific islands, Cuba, and Vancouver Island. If you have a related site, do get in touch.

The Nanaimo 50-Kilometer Holiday – It’s Smart to Travel Locally announces the creation of the Nanaimo 50-Kilometer Holiday with seven self-guided tours within a 50-kilometer radius of Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. As gasoline prices unpredictably rise and fall, vacationing locally becomes more attractive and Vancouver Island has so much to offer. The 50-Kilometer Holiday includes two walking tours within Nanaimo and five driving/bicycling tours to nearby mid-island destinations. Each tour is carefully crafted with a printable version and map which website users are invited to use on their trips.

Nanaimo’s waterfront and downtown are explored on walking tours which combine historic sites with scenic beauty. Lots of inviting cafes, galleries, and shops are along the way. Cyclists and motorists will visit the city’s finest public parks on the North Nanaimo Driving Tour. South Nanaimo is largely rural with some enjoyable attractions and hiking trails. The region’s finest private art gallery is in Cedar and Canada’s best bungy jumping is at Cassidy.

Further afield, Ladysmith and Chemainus offer history, hiking, kayaking, and culture. The cruise to Thetis Island from Chemainus is a highlight. Gabriola Island has some of western Canada’s most spectacular coastal scenery, plus outstanding bicycling and the region’s top artist’s colony. To the north, Parksville and Qualicum Beach have outstanding museums, gardens, parks, and galleries. The view of the Strait of Georgia from Qualicum Beach is unsurpassed. Butterflies, parrots, and wildlife are featured at world class centres in Coombs and Errington.

With so much to see and do in and around Nanaimo, it’s almost a waste to spend thousands of dollars flying halfway across the world when you could have just as much fun at home. An island holiday is a hassle-free holiday with no borders to cross, no travel insurance to buy, no bookings to make, and no money to exchange. So do your part to save the planet this summer by having a 50-Kilometer Holiday.

About the 50-Kilometer Holiday
The 50-Kilometre Holiday is roughly modeled on the 100-Mile Diet, a lifestyle revolution reconnecting Canadians with their roots. By creating the tours, hopes to encourage Nanaimo residents to conserve energy and strengthen their community by traveling locally. The travel website’s seven self-guided tours are now freely accessible online at 50-Kilometer Holiday.

Go Nanaimo, British Columbia

Boomtown Nanaimo, British Columbia, is one of the hottest housing markets in Canada. Baby boomers all across the country are casting their aging eyes west in their quest for a retirement haven, and the many advantages of Nanaimo, BC, are becoming known.

First off, there’s the mild climate moderated by warm Pacific currents arriving from Japan. Nanaimo only gets a couple of weeks of snow a year, quite a contrast to central and eastern Canada which can be snowed in from December to April. There’s… Continue
