Men Ski Can started to promote their idea of seeing'and skiing Can- ada, just last year, they return- ed eight planeloads of very happy skiers back home to the East. They already have twen- ty flights "booked for this win- ter. Skiers, and even the area it- self, are starting to realize that this area can offer everything that the more well known re- sorts offer.

The pleasures of Banff are easy to reach. The international airport at Calgary is one hour away from the town of Banff, on a newly completed free- way. Transportation is efficient to the town and up to the ski areas. Cradle of civilization Mediterranean-holiday nieeea By WINTIMOI' BRADLEY HOME The region around the Mediterranean, a sea about as big as the Caribbean and covering an area a quarter the size of CiiMla, is undoubtedly the world's leading arena for the historically minded, the archaeologist, the culturist and the vacationer who heads abroad on his holidays. So many Britons alone spend their holidays in the Mediter- ranean region that this con- tinent's largest airline, British European Airways, now ser- vices, with the help of its as- sociated companies, some 30 destinations on or adjacent to this greatest of. inland waters. (Many of these places are ac- cessible to Canadians on a daily basis, with Air Canada and BOAC providing connect- ing services several times a day across the Atlantic.) The Canadian visiting the area soon gets to feel that his country lies distantly remote, on the periphery of the world, and that if the riddle of man's survival is going to be solved at all, the solution will be found in this cradle of civiliza- .ion. In terms of wealth and pow- er, it must be admitted, the Mediterranean has long since fallen well behind much of northern Europe, let alone the U.S. and Canada. Still, one is conscious here of the existence of great wealth (and poverty, .0, it goes without not just as mirrored in terms of money in selected resorts where the affluent gather, but in the cultural heritage left us by the peoples of the ancient world and Tes Renaissance.

This purse size guide covers the Orient from Japan through India, ber through November, even into December in and some parts, is also plwisant. Winter, too, offers many fine clays but a limes can be nippy, damp and blustery. The Spanish coastline and the Balearic Islands have be- come favorite year-round re- sort regions of many northern Europeans, particularly the British who have been holiday- ing along the Mediterranean for a century or more. There the cost of living is low and holidays are consequently of particularly gofi( value. The choice of resorts and variety of prices which Spain offers her visitors also account for the country's popularity. On the Atlantic side of the Iberian Peninsula (now we are away from the Mediterranean, admittedly, but close to it) is the Algarve suction of Portugal Moorish in atmosphere and reminiscent of the climate of North Africa. A quiet region, the Algarve is ideal for a peaceful holiday among lemon groves and squat white build- ings.

The total number of visitors from all overseas countries in- creased by almost 20 per cent for the first half of 1970 from 261.753 to 309.701.

Italy has been a favorite des- tination for years, particularly Florence. Milan and Rome w i t h their great cultural at- tractions. These days, though, a number of beautiful beaches and sparkling coastal resorts vie for popularity with the treasures of past ages. From the Italian lakes down to Amalfi and Positano, Italy offers a kaleidoscope of resorts for all tastes. And then there is Elba off the coast with its memories of Napoleon. South of Elba is Sardinia, an island of rugged beauty with resorts like Porto Conle and the holi- day village of Santa Marghe- rita di Pula within easy reach of the airports of Alghero and Cagliari, respectively. There are many beautiful grottoes and caves to see in Sardinia, among them the Grotta del Laerru, which not only has stalactites and stalag- mites, but shelters petrified trees. To the east is Yugoslavia's Dalmatian coast with its re- sorts and bright modern hotels developed by an expanding tourist industry. The most popular resort, Dubrovnik, can be reached directly on non-stop flights from London. Greece, like Italy almost too well known to require brief ex- planation, offers cultural va- riety, with travellers these days getting beyond the main- land attractions to the intrigu- ing islands floating in the Aegean Sea. One of the "new" holiday places is Turkey with its mag- nificent mosques and relics of the Greek, Roman and Otto- man civilizations, and off the Turkish coast lies Cyprus, now beginning to become more popular with North Americans. SO, too, are Malta in the centre of the Mediterranean and Gib- raltar at the western end. Mal- ta, especially, offers many re- sorts, including Valletta, the capital, fashionable St. Julian's, and San Anton, a quiet place for those looking for a peaceful holiday abroad.
