Halifax was the perfect place for a solo escape.
I’ve written before about 5 travel splurges that were worth every penny. Sometimes having a splurge is the best possible value – it creates a memory or an experience that becomes the highlight of a trip.
Recently, I heard people on Twitter chatting about #ChardonnayDay and I had an instant flashback to one of my favourite travel splurges that was a chardonnay soaked experience!
Jo from Frugal First Class Travel shows us what the locals love in Sydney
Vanessa is visiting Sydney later this year on her Around the World trip and I’m keen to show her my adopted city has much to offer beyond the well worn tourist path.
Sydney is notoriously expensive (even for those of us who live here), and I know she’s on a coffee can budget, so I’ve found Vanessa a range of great activities that won’t break the budget. I’m recommending activities and locations that are all easily reached by public transport (using a mixture of buses, ferries and trains) and that can be enjoyed regardless of your budget.
Cold Vines, Warm Hearts - Ottawa has Wine!
Paul and Debbie LeBlanc's passion for Smokie Ridge Vineyard is obvious as soon as you meet them. Their vision, their enthusiasm, and their dedication is inspiring - but what on earth are they doing growing grapes and making wine in Ottawa of all places?
What Are Your Favourite Things About Toronto?
Diary Note, May 2012: It’s TBEX time! The travel blogging community and the travel industry are anxiously awaiting the chance to meet face to face at the end of May and you couldn’t ask for a better host community than Toronto. Here are 5 things I love about this buzzing metropolis (and three that I don’t).
Everyone needs to explore to Canada's capital!
I’m a huge advocate of getting to know and explore your own hometown. But sometimes even I need to take my own advice!
With this in mind, May is Ottawa Month, here at TurnipSeed Travel!
This short post will be followed all month with other posts about things to do in, and around Ottawa, Canada.
Jane’s Walk 101
This weekend, we were fortunate to take part in the Jane’s Walk Tours.
The Jane’s Walks are a celebration of the life and work of Jane Jacobs, an urbanist and activist who didn’t let a lack of formal training stop her from revolutionizing how we see urban spaces and ecosystems.
This annual free festival of walking tours helps put residents back in touch with their neighbourhood, their city, and appreciate the rich history and architecture all around us.
They say everyone needs to travel to Las Vegas
Everyone has an opinion about Las Vegas. There are those that are passionate about it, try to build every special occasion around it, need to get their yearly Vegas fix. And there are those who say “once was enough” and swear never again.
I fall somewhere in the middle. I’d absolutely go again, and as Vegas is a fairly short and inexpensive plane ride away, it has great potential to be a sunny long weekend destination in the future. However, there are many places I want to see and discover for the first time - other places I’d rather spend my travel budget. So what did I love about Vegas– and what fell short?
