24 Hours in Reykjavik

24 Hours in Reykjavik

I don’t recommend you do 24 hours in Reykjavik. I recommend at least 72 hours, but that’s because I love Reykjavik so much that I think it deserves more of your time. That being said, a lot of people take advantage of Icelandair’s free stopovers between Europe and North America (and why shouldn’t they). I … Continue reading

Chicago 3.0

Chicago 3.0

They say ‘third time’s a charm’, but for me, the first was all it took. Chicago had me at hello, and I’ve proclaimed my affection for it ever since. I most certainly like Chicago more than New York, believing that Toronto is much more like a mini-Chicago than the “Little Apple”. I love Chicago’s neighbourhoods, … Continue reading

Iceland, My Love

Iceland, My Love

It’s been nearly three years, and I still find it difficult to verbalise why I fell so in love with Iceland in just four short days (the first time around). Photos usually serve as suitable assistants, but even then, many people still don’t understand my infatuation. I’ve even had one friend call me weird for … Continue reading

Exploring Vík, South Iceland

Exploring Vík, South Iceland

After our glacier hike was cancelled, we were left wondering if there was enough to do in Vík to keep us entertained for an entire day. Vík, with a population of only a few hundred, turned out to be one of the most stunningly surprising places I’ve ever been. Here’s a look: Planning our day … Continue reading

Trundling Through South Okanagan’s Wineries

Trundling Through South Okanagan’s Wineries

Trundling indeed.   I’ve made a habit of visiting wineries in the north Okanagan – Mission Hill, Grey Monk, Cedar Creek, and my all-time favourite Quails’ Gate – but I’ve never ventured much further south. In a quest to hit up somewhere new, we did just that – ventured south into Oliver and Osoyoos, and … Continue reading

Ooops. I’ve been AWOL.

Ooops. I’ve been AWOL.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Yes, I’ve totally neglected the blog. Ooooops. My job requires me to do a lot of creative content, so by the time I’m done work, I really don’t want to turn the computer back on and write more travel content. I’ve been pretty good lately about shutting down … Continue reading

Antiquing in Quebec

Antiquing in Quebec

As I planned my #FCRoadTrip travels through southern Quebec, I was rather excited to discover that the region known as “Centre-du-Quebec” (aka the bit between Quebec City and Montreal), is a haven for antiques and antiquing. Who knew!? Being that my mum and I have a bit of a thing for antiques, we decided to … Continue reading

Local Food in Byward Market

Local Food in Byward Market

For me, there’s nothing more satisfying than eating locally-sourced foods and chatting with local vendors about their produce and procuring procedures. I love seeing how excited people get about food, and how proud they are about their local suppliers. When we let it slip that we’re huge fans of goat cheese, John, the cheesemonger at … Continue reading

Graffiti in Toronto

Graffiti in Toronto

There’s an ongoing discussion / debate here in Toronto with regards to the graffiti and street art that peppers the city. It’s a discussion that polarises some, and unites others, dividing those that believe it’s art and those that believe it’s graffiti. To get even more complex, many, like me, believe there’s a distinction between … Continue reading
