Here are the top 5 things to do in Shediac
We're thrilled to have author and publisher Stacy D. Atkinson contribute to TurnipseedTravel! Like Vanessa, Stacy also grew up in the Canadian Maritimes and her latest novel, Stuck, is set in the Shediac region of New Brunswick. I'm hoping Stacy's incredible novel will inspire you to take a trip to this beautiful, affordable, underrated area of Canada.
Why you need to visit Shediac, New Brunswick, (And sit on a giant lobster!)
I’m so happy to be guest blogging while the wonderful Vanessa is off travelling the world (thanks Tilley!). Today, I thought I’d share with you a little bit about a place I know quite well – Shediac, New Brunswick. It’s an Acadian town nestled along the coast, located about 15 minutes from Moncton. You may have already heard of Shediac’s main attraction, Parlee Beach, which receives thousands of tourists passing through each summer!
Tim Tams and travel? Yes please!
TurnipseedTravel is thrilled to welcome back Jo from Frugal First Class Travel for a second guest post. Her first contribution, Beyond Bondi Beach: An Insider's Guide to Sydney, gave us a behind-the-scenes look at this iconic city. Now Jo helps us explore a topic dear to my heart....
AUSTRALIAN SWEET TREATS TO SAVOUR
Anyone who reads Turnipseed Travel regularly will know Vanessa has a sweet tooth. I doubt she’s met a brownie she didn't like. Now down here in Australia, we don’t have a strong brownie culture, so to stop Vanessa going into withdrawals I’ve come up with a list of true Aussie delights to tempt her taste buds. As always, I’m conscious of her coffeecan budget, so everything I've chosen won’t break the budget. Oh, and by the way, they are all easily found in supermarkets, cafes or bakeries (except the Haigh’s chocs, which are well worth the trip!)
These are my 5 favourite cherry experiences in Michigan.
The National Cherry Festival of Traverse City, Michigan, takes place every July. With more than 150 events happening in this charming small city - many with gorgeous views of Lake Michigan - it's a fun, family friendly, and delicious occasion. But cherry lovers who can't make a visit in July will still find plenty of sweet treats year round in Traverse City. Here are 5 of my favourite cherry experiences.
The Jolly Pumpkin Restaurant and Brewery.
Local food is a specialty at the Jolly Pumpkin Restaurant and Brewery, as is creative micro-brews, but I loved the tangy sweet dried cherry salsa on their pulled pork nachos. And I know my nachos! They were a great appetizer to share with friends before diving into our main courses (pizza for Ryan, white fish with Brussel sprouts and Israeli couscous for me.)
Welcome to the latest installment of the "Save, Splurge, Steal" interview series. Getting great value when I travel is always such a fun challenge for me and I love to learn how other people get the best possible experience for their available time and money. I'm asking top travel bloggers to share their expertise and I hope you enjoy their responses as much as I do!
Meet Colleen of Ad-Lib Traveller!
As somebody that aspires to travels as often as life allows, Coleen hopes to share the idea that with motivation follows the dream; we can all aim to make the most of our travel opportunities whether it is at home or abroad. There isn't a set plan or agenda for where or when Colleen travels - she looks at her schedule and plans within her means for an impromptu trip.
No city is filled with hope and expectations quite like Paris.
Paris: Love it or Hate it?
You can hardly click on a Pinterest board without seeing something that says “Paris Is Always A Good Choice”. I have to say, I’m inclined to agree! I've been to Paris 6 times and I just love it. There’s a reason Paris makes it onto every bucket list, why even non-travelers are enamored with the City of Lights. Just imagine - the food, the fashion, the history, and the beauty. But Paris also has many detractors - is it too busy, too expensive, or too snobby? Which side of Paris can you expect during your first visit?
