TRAVEL | The Great Jetaway


There are so many places in the world I have yet to discover and I’m sure you have someone in your life that has a lengthy list of dream destinations too; here’s your chance to make one of their travel fantasies a reality!

Nominate a friend, a family member, or a neighbour to help them win their dream vacation with the Edmonton International Airport’s GreatJetaway contest! It’s easy:

1.     Create a 15 second video explaining who you think deserves the trip of a lifetime,    where they want to go and why. 

2.     Post the video on Instagram or Twitter

3.     Add the hashtag #EIAGreatJetaway in the caption and tag three friends to nominate someone special in their lives.


My nomination is for my sister, Katie, who has always been curious about our heritage ever since she found out our surname, Karpetz, was unique and only found in Canada. She knew our ancestors had immigrated so surely there had been a name change upon entering North America. After a little more research, she discovered the next closest surname, Karpets, which is prevalent in Russia and the Ukraine. Her dream, aside from seeing the Kremlin and other epic monuments, is to go sleuthing to find any long lost or distant relatives in Russia. As the older generations keep passing away, she has taken it upon herself to become the family historian; this would certainly help her honor that position!
