The next morning, after a rather hurried breakfast (I got the timings wrong and we just missed breakfast – thankfully the kind folk at the Metterra Hotel rustled something up for us from the kitched), we headed off to Downton Edmonton to try our hands at something new – segwaying. I tend to be more … Continue Reading

The next morning at Kuramathi began as all good mornings in the Maldives should – with lots of sunshine and a mountain of breakfast! Shortly after, we hopped aboard what I guess is the lazy man’s way to snorkel – a sub-submarine. (There’s no way I could have snorkelled right after eating the amount of … Continue Reading

Thoroughly impressed by the Ice Castles of Edmonton, we made our way back to town grab some well-earned lunch at an old school Mexican restaurant called Rostizado. (Edmontonians love Mexican food as it turns out). Rostizado is designed to feel more like dining at a friend’s place, than at a restaurant (right down to the … Continue Reading

One our first morning in Edmonton (we arrived the evening before), I somehow managed to escape the jetlag entirely and woke up thoroughly refreshed and very eager to explore the city! We pretty much rushed downtown as early as possible for a group breakfast with new and old(er) friends at the rather delightful District Café. … Continue Reading

The first time I saw pictures of Pena palace in Sintra (granted, this was quite a while back), I kinda didn’t believe it was a real place. It looks so grand yet so colourful that it seemed like something someone working in a Disney movie had drawn up. Of course, I very quickly found out … Continue Reading

*Heads up – this is a very photo heavy post so you might wanna hunker down with a nice cuppa tea, leave it a couple of minutes to load (no longer!) and serve yourself some cake (no euphemism 🙂 ) before you proceed! 😉 😀 When it comes to food, it’s always a good idea to … Continue Reading

As you may have been able to tell from Instagram, Facebook or Twitter – we’re in Canada – Edmonton, to be precise and boy is it an amazing city! We’ve been so busy pretty traipsing through the city in search of fun and to take in as much of the sights as possible (before we … Continue Reading
