You can fly from Los Cabos, Mexico to Brandon Manitoba without an overnight stop in Calgary.
You can’t do this every night of the week, just on those evenings when there is an 8:40PM flight from Calgary to Brandon. This evening flight makes the same-day return connection possible. So it’s important to choose your connections carefully.
Here’s an example. Priced per 2 adults, leaving on January 11th.
What a fun word to write! Thank goodness for spellcheck. I can’t think of another word that has three “U” and two “Q.”
And until my time-killing search on a -30C night in January, I didn’t realize that you could fly to New Mexico, from Brandon, in one day. Thanks to Expedia.ca I took this info and rolled into a vacation.
Flights, 7 night’s hotel, and breakfast included $1022 per person. That’s pretty cool and suddenly, you’re 55 degrees warmer than at home, eating authentic Mexican cuisine and exploring the Rio Grande.

I’ve made it a personal goal to see at least one new city or town each year. This is a pretty easy thing to accomplish. And I do enjoy it.
In 2016 I visited San Diego, California. I really loved it. Especially the seals on the beach, dinner at Old Town and the cake on the patio at Scripps Pier. Those were fabulous. Actually, that whole trip was great. Really good food, great scenery and even better company. San Diego is a must visit on my list for couples, families and buddy trips. It’s one of those locations that truly has something for everybody. I will definitely go back.
In February, I travelled with my friend Kim to Florence Italy. Hard not to wax poetic over a trip like that. We took a pasta making class, travelled the tuscany region on a wine tour and even climbed the Leaning Tower of Pisa. We stayed at a small boutique hotel near the train station. The breakfast and hospitality and constant cappuccinos made us feel oh so very comfortable. We also LOVED the market and the shops and made a dear friend in Stefania. We saw museums and statues and paintings. We laughed and made the best memories. If you ever get the chance, GO TO FLORENCE! I would go back in a heartbeat.
And Cleveland. Wow! It was so much more than I expected. What a great sports town, and even though we saw the Cleveland Browns kick off their worst season in history, we enjoyed that game and baseball too. Then there was the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Unreal! Must see. And for me, it will always be memorable. 2016 was a tragic year for the loss of legendary musicians David Bowie, Prince, and George Michael. I bought myself a CD in the gift shop, Prince’s Purple Rain. A really nice souvenir of a special trip with my youngest son. Would I go back to Cleveland? Yes, absolutely.
Now available thru Expedia.ca, bookings are available to Europe and beyond using Westjet’s codeshare partners. And booking a flight to Paris, from YBR (Brandon municipal airport) is surprisingly convenient. The flight itself is now almost as convenient. You can be in Italy or Finland 15 hours after leaving home!
