While perusing ‘historic saltbox homes near the ocean’ on AirBnb I stumbled upon a series of small cabins cloaked in canvas. “There’s Glamping in Newfoundland?”

Alt Hotel St. John’s Staycation

Alt Hotel St. John’s Staycation

The best part about a staycation? No pressure to leave the hotel, not that I wanted to leave the Alt Hotel St. John’s anyways: With gorgeous decor and high-tech amenities, the Newfoundland addition to the Le Germain family is welcome.

I ate all of the food during my winter stay at the Fogo Island Inn. Bread on bread on bread at Newfoundland’s most luxurious island hotel.

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 | 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.

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

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 […]

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 […]
