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.
La Favorita had disappointing food, horrible service - and a dirty cash grabbing trick.
As a travel blogger, one of the best parts of my job is enjoying a wide range of experiences –trips, festivals, museums, restaurants, and parks – and sharing them with my readers. I take pride in painting a vivid picture so others can relive my experiences, and it’s a job I don’t take lightly.
As a member of the Blog with Integrity program, I aim to be fair, impartial, transparent, and honest in my reviews. I am positive and upbeat while still giving an accurate and unbiased review. Thus far, I've been very fortunate to have had many positive experiences and it’s with a heavy heart to report on a negative one.
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?
Ottawa's Own International Dessert Festival!
On Wed, May 8, 2013 I was pleased to be part of the Ottawa Mommy’s Club delegation to the Ottawa Desserts of the World Festival.
I’m dedicating the month of May to rediscovering my hometown and I figured, while it might be a real tough gig, I was up to the task of researching and reviewing desserts!
A New Festival for a Great Cause
In its inaugural year, the Desserts of the Word Festival promises to be a yearly celebration that’s a perfect to kick off Mother’s Day weekend, with desserts from Canada, France, Lebanon, China, Africa, Italy, Israel, and India.
Proceeds from the event were benefiting St. Mary’s Home, a social support organization that provides programs and opportunities for teenage parents.
