Is there anything better than the smell of fresh-baked bread? A nostalgic bouquet familiar all over the world, spanning thousands of years warms the heart and makes you drool. Fogo Island Inn’s bread initiated my love for the place, and within hours I felt at […]
Visiting Ottawa in the winter might seem frigidly foolish, but it’s delicious! Small lines make hole-in-the-wall restaurants even cozier. From waffles and ramen to Spanish tapas, the restaurant scene is anything but cold.
Skerwink Hostel is named after the epic awe-inspiring hiking trail just down the road. It’s also happens to be a short walk to my favourite Newfoundland brewery, Port Rexton Brewing.
My sister lived in Madrid for a year so when Adam and I travelled there with her and her partner Sean, I knew we would hit all the local spots from churros to Indian food.

It’s become tradition to visit a wine region on my birthday. Last year we visited Prince Edward County for the big 3-0, and this year we didn’t have to travel far to visit one of the best wine regions in Canada — Niagara. We stayed in […]
Who knew cooking with poo could be so fun? No, not that kind of poo — get your mind out of the gutter. Learning to make Thai food with the lovely women named Poo — short for Champoo, meaning “rose apple” — was a fun […]
