First Visit to Canada for Work August 2016

Having accepted the new position at work of Director of Residential Sales for the Central Region (which is the whole middle of the US and all of Canada), I needed to go and visit all the sales guys now under my charge. In addition my sales person in Eastern Canada decided to take another position so I needed to fly there at the last minute and discuss his departure and collect information about current sales information in his territory.

Total Trip

My trip started with a flight to Vancouver via Denver. the flight was good and it was interesting to see all the different geology from the air

  1. We thought Canada was really great! You explored more than we did while we were with the insurance company planned trip. However, we did explore Vancouver some while only there overnight waiting for our cruise to Alaska. Hope you get a chance to see Quebec City and Montreal on one of your trips.
