*Bold claim but carry on and you’ll see what I mean… After a rather relaxing evening at Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, we got up nice and early (not too early though) to meet our guide from the day before, Derek. Derek had a different hike for us today and unlike Grotto Canyon, which we’d specifically … Continue Reading

After our full day exploring Calgary (and eating our way through it), it was finally time to bid the city farewell and head out into the Canadian Rocky Mountains of Alberta. Canadian cities are great fun (especially if you know the best places to eat, drink and dance) but the great outdoors is without a … Continue Reading

We had such grand plans for lunch in Calgary. We had recommendations from Instagram, we had locals recommend stuff to us and even did some research in advance.

As you can probably tell by now, I’m pretty smitten with Niagara-on-the-Lake, I loved visiting so much. It’s one of those charming little towns you can visit again and again and still just wanna see more. I really think it’s a contender for one of the prettiest Canadian towns in Ontario, for sure!

Okay, don’t judge me, but I hadn’t really heard of ice wine before our trip to Canada. I had literally no clue on any of it! Now, it’s no secret that I’m a sucker for anything wine related, so as soon as I heard about ice wine in Canada I knew I had to visit … Continue Reading

Niagara-on-the-Lake was a total surprise to me before our last visit to Canada. I mean, yeah, I’d heard of Niagara Falls but I’d never really heard of the town or things to do within Niagara-on-the-Lake. I mean, this was my biggest mistake if I’m honest and after seeing Niagara Falls, it was one of my … Continue Reading
