Vancouver is one amazing city to visit! It’s one of those incredible places in Canada that has a buzzing city life but is also so close to the dramatic natural spots on the west coast. This is exactly why I wanted to share our itinerary and guide to visiting Vancouver for a week.  You see, … Continue Reading

I have no idea how to make this post short so I’m not even gonna try! Once you see the photos from that flight to (and from) Whistler, you’ll understand why it was a struggle to stop taking photos – that place is gorgeous. Suffice to say, your obligatory tea and biscuits (oh, what the … Continue Reading

Ever since we laid out our plans for Vancouver, there was one thing I was really looking forward to – that thing was heading over to Whistler for the day. This was partly because I’d never gotten to visit Whistler before but mostly because the views on the way over were said to be absolutely … Continue Reading

For the first time since we arrived in Vancouver (on this trip, anyway), we decided to tear ourselves away from the wonderful breakfast at the Shangri La and head into town for breakfast. There was a place in town everyone kept raving about and my gluttony was far too intrigued to not pop in and … Continue Reading

The Sunshine Coast is one of those places in Canada I’d never really heard about prior to visiting. To be fair, you never really think of Canada and think of sunshine – their winters are so epic that it seems to overshadow summer. ^ Case in point! You’d be wrong for dismissing summers in Canada … Continue Reading

Whistler, a few hours north of Vancouver, has become a pretty popular spot to visit in British Columbia…. and not just for the skiing.

It’s not often I do a stand-alone foodie post like this but I just couldn’t figure out a better way to show you this amazing gem we found in Vancouver. For starters, I ate far too much and hence have far too many photos to append to the actual next post (*it would just be … Continue Reading

Day two in Vancouver! Technically, it’s day 3 but jet lag got the best of the very first day so Day 2 it is. Like I said, before, breakfast at the Shangri La Hotel in Vancouver is something of an event. It’s not something you rush – there’s no buffet – everything is made to … Continue Reading

Vancouver is a delicious city, and I say that literally! There are so many mouth-watering places to eat, so many places to explore and a shed load of the best bakeries in Vancouver to chow-down at.  Now, there’s one thing that I always pride myself on and that’s knowing my puddings, pastries and pain au chocolat! … Continue Reading

What makes it even more amazing is the huge array of delicious food and best restaurants In Vancouver, that are dotted all across the city.  From authentic Italian, French-inspired and some yummy Canadian classics, there’s always some amazing … Continue Reading

Canada is an incredible country to explore. From cities like Toronto and Edmonton to gorgeous spots such as Jasper and the rest of Alberta. Canada is as diverse as a country could possibly be, with the best places in British Columbia being some stunning spots you can’t miss.  I have a deep and probably overly … Continue Reading

After our brilliant morning cycling through Vancouver, we made our way over to Nightingale for lunch. Nightingale is one of the most recommended places by locals (pretty much everyone we asked or told kept telling us how good it was) and so we arrived with rather lofty expectations (and a growing rumble in our tummies). … Continue Reading

You might have guessed by now that I have a deep and very real love for everything Canadian. It’s beautiful countryside, literally the friendliest people, piles of bacon and one massive space to explore. With, let’s be honest, a heap of the best things to do in Nova Scotia, too. Now, perched on the Atlantic … Continue Reading

Arguably one of the most scenic provinces in all of Canada, Alberta is stunning! Not only that, but it’s also home to two of the oldest national parks in the world. This alone makes this province incredible, but there are so many epic and best places in Alberta that are too incredible to miss.  There’s … Continue Reading
