The Food at Fogo Island Inn

The Food at Fogo Island Inn

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 […]

48 Hours of Eating: A Winter Guide to Ottawa Restaurants

48 Hours of Eating: A Winter Guide to Ottawa Restaurants

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 in Trinity East, Newfoundland

Skerwink Hostel in Trinity East, Newfoundland

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.

Paddling with Rafting Newfoundland on the Exploits River

Paddling with Rafting Newfoundland on the Exploits River

I’m fearless when it comes to eating. I will try anything once, not batting an eyelash while devouring creepy crawlies or raw fish. But when it comes to adventure sports, my knees start knocking. I’m a taste chaser, not a thrill-seeker. When the opportunity arose to […]

A Guide to Exploring the Baccalieu Trail, Newfoundland

A Guide to Exploring the Baccalieu Trail, Newfoundland

Newfoundland’s Baccalieu Trail is full of things to see, and it only took me six years living away to appreciate what it means to be a tourist at home.

St. John’s Beer Tours: Where to drink Newfoundland beer

St. John’s Beer Tours: Where to drink Newfoundland beer

Did you know one can actually be afraid of an empty beer glass? Luckily on St. John’s Beer Tours, cenosillicaphobia isn’t a problem. We all know how I’ve been praising taking cooking classes, now I have another regret: not taking a freaking beer tour! I’ve visited beer-boroughs […]

Where to Eat, Sleep and Drink Wine in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Where to Eat, Sleep and Drink Wine in Niagara-on-the-Lake

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 […]

Visiting the Tap Room at Port Rexton Brewing, Newfoundland

Visiting the Tap Room at Port Rexton Brewing, Newfoundland

The dam of craft beer in Newfoundland is about to be tapped. When I left home six years ago, there wasn’t much of a scene here. Besides mass produced beers like India and Dominion (made by Molson) or Quidi Vidi’s small selection, there wasn’t much happening. Storm […]

Afternoon Tea at the Shangri-La Toronto

Afternoon Tea at the Shangri-La Toronto

Afternoon Tea has so much going for it. Where else do you get to indulge in copious amounts of tea, sweets, scones and Prosecco for hours on end? And who doesn’t love miniature sandwiches? No one, that’s who. The first afternoon tea was held by Anna, the […]

How to Pack a Carry-on for a 10-day Trip Home for Christmas

How to Pack a Carry-on for a 10-day Trip Home for Christmas

I’m always surprised when people tell me they are still checking bags when they fly. First of all, it costs at least $25 these days to check a bag on an economy ticket, and come on, who wants to wait in those lines? Especially during […]

The market at Evergreen Brickworks

The market at Evergreen Brickworks

Ah outdoor markets — what every Canadian fiends for for all winter long, anxiously waiting for days when purchasing fresh local non-root vegetables is an option. Last weekend, Adam and I decided to venture to the Evergreen Brickworks for the inaugural outdoor market of 2016. The […]

48 Hours in Prince Edward County

48 Hours in Prince Edward County

“Aww I don’t want to spit out all that wine,” Adam said as we pulled away from the car rental spot in Toronto — we were headed to Prince Edward County for the weekend to celebrate my 30th birthday with food, wine and fresh air. Neither of […]
