The Spirit Bear Adventure Travel

British Adventure Traveler Claire boarded her scheduled Air Canada flight to Vancouver, British Columbia (BC). Twenty-nine-year-old Claire, who treats herself to one adventure trip each year, always tried to begin her adventure by flying an airline hosted by the country in which she would visit.
